It is easy to find a male coach when looking for a specialist in strength and conditioning. And with the demand growing for additional sports performance training outside of organized team trainings, we want to ensure our young women have a place to train and work alongside a coach that they feel they can connect with. Many female athletes feel more comfortable having physiological conversations specific to girls and women with a female coach as they may involve personal topics such as female athlete triad and how that can impact their bone density and injury risk. At Milwaukee Movement, we also recognize that many of our athletes are in the beginning stages of sports performance training where they are looking to develop a solid movement foundation. Our athletic trainer approaches each athlete with a warm welcome and an endearing smile as she understands it is traditionally intimidating to enter into a new environment where many of the training patterns and movements are being attempted for the first time.
Along with providing the care expected of all athletic trainers, we approach each session and the athletes it includes with compassion recognizing that there are other dynamics outside of training that impact the performance process. Whether that be a bad day at school, playing poorly over the weekend, giving an incredible presentation, or getting a promotion, we want to approach each situation with genuine care so that no matter how you came into Milwaukee Movement, you are leaving changed for the better.
