This course is designed for coaches and athletes who want to make a difference in their track and field performance.
Learn the fundamental anatomy of the core:
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.
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.
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.
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.
This course and the Abdominal Feedback Unit will help you to have a core that is strong and controlled.
You will get you to where you want to be.
There are no physical or fitness requirements to complete the Introduction to the Core Course. A willingness to learn and get start is all you need!
Not at all! This course will be very useful to any athlete that completes it. Any Track and Field athlete that completes this course will be able to implement the knowledge and techniques into their training. This knowledge is essential for athlete's who want to understand the role of their core in their performance.
The course is primarily run and accessed online. There are some valuable resources that you will have access to download and print if you wish.
You can head to the product page here to find out more about the device and add one to your shopping cart. Alternatively, we've already added on to your cart. Just add this course to your shopping cart and you'll see it at the Checkout page.

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