Anthony Freeman is a former Bicycle Motocross World Cup and National Champion, a Cat-3 Masters cyclist, fitness trainer and athletic coach. He has a background in cycling (BMX, Road, Mountain), basketball, football, martial arts, boxing, obstacle course racing, running, and weight training with twenty years of experience designing and monitoring safe and functional training programs from beginner to professional levels.
Over the past few years, Freeman has dedicated himself full-time to his passion for fitness, health, and community building. Using his applied research on the systematic nature of the human body, he has been developing a training philosophy that integrates mental, physical, and spiritual enhancement using interdisciplinary techniques. Because each body is different, he applies an individualized needs-based approach based on client’s health history and physical assessment of cardio fitness, range of motion, strength, posture/alignment, and form. His mantra is to maintain openness and fluidity in all that he sets out to do and create. As an athlete, father, mentor, community supporter and student of life, Anthony aims to make the development of healthy and empowered bodies and minds the foundation for bringing about optimal livelihood.
"I've learned a lot about developing athletes regardless of the specific sport they compete in. Many sports require close to the same mechanical movements and muscle strength; speed, endurance, strength, and coordination are necessary for most sports. For example, the major muscle groups required to hit a golf ball, baseball, and tennis ball can be cross trained in a very similar way (core strength), while the follow through, wrist action, and footwork in each of those may be executed very differently. What I have noticed throughout my career in athletics is that athletes involved in at least two sports seem to have an athletic advantage in many cases. Though genetics and work ethic are most important in development, incorporating at minimum one additional sport or fitness discipline to cross-train the body could provide more muscle stability, flexibility, and greater range of motion (which all aid in injury prevention)."
