XPT: What’s your favorite XPT related tip, discipline, activity, etc) to teach your clients?
MN: I embrace Breath. Move. Recover equally. However, I offer a unique ability to teach the in water strength component of XPT.
XPT: How has XPT impacted you and/or your clients?
MN: XPT has added a new dimension to my physical and mental training. I used the principals when preparing for the World Marathon Challenge and came in second place to the World Record holder. I have started integrating the principles into my athletes’ practice sessions. The swimmers and triathletes are thriving. Prior land-based strength athletes who have previously stayed clear of the pool are starting to dive in too.
XPT: What were the ways you were immediately able to implement XPT learnings into your training following your XPT Certification course?
MN: I was able to incorporate BOLT scores and cadence breathing patterns into a run workout the day after my certification. The thermal challenges and water based strength training took more time and planning, but have been well worth the effort.
