Why did you get into coaching?

Jose started coaching to help athletes improve in their sports and reduce their risk of injury. He had seen too many young athletes coming for therapy from overuse injuries. The majority of these were the result of poor control and insufficient stability/mobility throughout basic movement patterns . Jose’s aim at Rushmoor is to help build resilient and accomplished movers/athletes who are able to transfer their athleticism into the pool. Building this strong foundation is absolutely essential for longevity and success in any sport
