Special Message of
Acknowledgement and Gratitude

Thank You

I would like to give special mention to my friend Mario Innaurato (Former Fitness Coach of the Belgian National team and many other professional teams in Europe).

Mario actively participated in the building of a new generation of Belgian players. Mario gave me access to his techniques around “Intermittent preparation”. Without his work, advice and expertise he willingly shared with me, I would not have had as much success with the teams I have trained and coached here in Canada and the United states. With this approach, our teams always finished games very strongly and this was witnessed by my colleagues, my players, our opposition, and observers who watched us play.  Throughout my years coaching, I have experienced much success as I have been able to apply his specific research to my youth programs.  Over the years of utilizing and refining this methodology, Mario has commented that he thinks the student has surpassed the teacher.  Of this, I am not sure, but I would like to send a very heartfelt thank you to you, Mister Mario from me and all the kids who have benefited from your work.  Your legacy has touched countless players in North America and I’m eternally grateful for you sharing your knowledge with me
