Why You Need This Course

Hi, I’m Adrian Faccioni.

I am the founder of Fatch Fitness and have been a highly regarded elite Strength & Conditioning & Track and Field coach and sports scientist for over 30 years.

To maximise my capacity as a Track & Field coach, I needed to learn as much about strength and conditioning as possible. In that quest for knowledge I discovered that many coaches and athletes are not using the appropriate core programming (core exercises too advanced, or just inappropriate for the event their athletes are undertaking).

I wanted to develop an online course that could assist coaches in better understanding the role of the core and how to best condition it for the demands of Track and Field.

Why is the core so important?

Your abdominal (core) muscles are responsible for helping you do ALL movements.

Most athlete’s core routines don’t strengthen their core how they think their core is being conditioned. This often results in both poor core strength and stability, which negatively effects their capacity to perform in their chosen Track & Field discipline.

When the core lacks both strength & control; movement inefficiencies, lack of power transfer and potential for lower back injuries can occur.

That is why it is so important to not only strengthen your core but to also improve core stability and core coordination at the same time.

Before you can effectively, and safely improve your core strength it is imperative to have a good understanding what the core is and its function.

Foundational knowledge and understanding of the core will help your success in strengthening your athletes’ core appropriately..

It will give you crucial understanding for creating and performing an appropriate customised exercise routine for each of your athletes.

Most generic core routines are not suitable for anyone! That is why they are generic. And, they can hinder your athletes’ progress.

We have such little time to fit all the components of training in within any week, so we should ensure we do the right exercises that get our athletes to their goals the fastest. This starts with the appropriate understanding of how to train the core and, most importantly, how to accurately measure what your athletes’ current levels of core strength are.

And, that is why you need to complete this course.

This course will provide you with both the theory and practice to allow you to take your athlete’s conditioning routines to another level.

The Introduction to the Core Course: Track and Field Edition will give you the knowledge and tools to allow you to determine exactly how strong and controlled your athletes’ core is, and more importantly how to get their core into shape.

As part of the course, you will learn how to use an Abdominal Biofeedback Unit. This device will give you insight into your athletes’ current core strength levels and will tell you if your current exercise routines are appropriate or not. You can purchase the device separately here. We’ve also popped in the checkout for you! 

You will see results when you use the unit along with the learning from the course.

Abdominal Biofeedback Unit

How will I be supported through this course?

Why do my athletes' report their lower back hurts after certain core exercises?

Any lower back pain when performing core exercises in particular is a strong sign of a weak core or inability to stablise the pelvis/lower back when performing these exercises. If this sounds like your athlete, you need to address two issues:

  1. Work out how strong their core currently is;
  2. Undertake a core routine that is specific for their current level of strength.

The “Introduction to the Core: Track and Field Edition” course & accompanying Abdominal Biofeedback Unit will provide you with both these solutions.
