Thank you all for the pushes, challenges, and the support. This idea would only exist on a whiteboard if it wasn’t for you.
To challenge and question EVERYTHING that we think we know about sports, education, and development.
Through this journey I’ve worked with best-selling authors, olympic coaches, professional athletes, renowned professors, and thousands of coaches, teachers, students, and players from all over the world.
These experiences helped me to discover some incredibly important research in the fields of motor learning, performance science, and psychology that should have totally changed the way we train and develop students, athletes, and people in general – but they have not.
It’s my mission to change that.
Each morning I get out of bed inspired to read, research, learn, and share as much as possible with students, athletes, coaches, and teachers.
Welcome to the hub for change. Welcome to the tribe. Welcome to Train Ugly.

I can’t express how enthused I am to have found your site via my recent American Swim Coaches newsletter, I could virtually jump up & down waving my arms wildly to show my excitement!
Look forward to scouring the site for articles/videos…my only question, “Why haven’t I heard about you before?”
