Gerry DeFilippo
An in-depth discussion on training youth and elite athletes, building a training business and keys to building a quality social media platform in the strength training/sports performance industry.
Show Notes

In this episode, Gerry starts out with a long, yet productive rant about his intention to further quality training exposure on social media. He then gives another breakdown on why unstable surface training may not be the best means to use to prepare athletes for their sports.

He then announces the launch of the "War for Quality Strength Training," and finishes his rant with some social media talk regarding followers, training pro athletes and how neither dictates the quality of a trainer/training program.

From there, Erica Suter joins the show. Erica enjoyed a soccer career at Johns Hopkins university as well as a playing and coaching career in Brazil after college. From there, she pursued her passion for strength and skill training athletes (specifically soccer players), and began her own business.

The conversation covers the essentials for building young AND elite athletes, as well as some things you definitely want to avoid. Then, Erica gives her input on the importance of culture when it comes to training athletes and how she has built a great culture during her 8 years as a coach/business owner. A discussion on business, social media and what it takes to have a successful/engaged social media following closes out the conversation. A must listen for all coaches and athletes!
