Having an application like PLT4M has created a new excitement in our weight room for both coaches and students. Students no longer have to guess what exercise, weight, and rep they have to do next. The app helps out with all these needs. Sports coaches now feel that they are part of the process, as they have created programs on the app for their teams. It is very easy to use and the staff at PLT4M makes sure it is working the way they want. Instructors in the room feel that the app has given them more time to make connections, and time to focus on students that might need help with technique or more guidance on what to do. PLT4M is always looking for ways to improve their product and they have always been quick to respond when help was needed.
WHY DO YOU WORK WITH STUDENTS?
I like the idea of giving back and making kids realize that they can do things they didn’t think they could. I used to be one of those kids until a coach took the time with me. It’s fun to watch and be part of that process with them. I do believe that the process is the reward in the end.
