I want you to meet Ray Regno.
We met Ray on a Wednesday at Mike Burgener’s gym as he was off to the side coaching an athlete, teaching how to activate the lats in the overhead squat.
As you’ll soon learn, Ray is a really smart coach. He is one of those coaches who has a drill or movement for everything. We got to talking to Ray and were impressed with just how knowledgable he was about movement.
The coolest part is that Ray is mostly self-taught. Through an obsession with the CrossFit® Journal, observing and learning from good coaches, Ray has been able to rapidly up-level his coaching game in a very short time.
In this episode we talk about the value of progressions in teaching movement, how to speed up your growth as a coach, and why you should hold your athletes more accountable for how they move.
- Give Ray a follow on the Insta- @rayregno …he shares some great coaching content …and if you ever make it out to San Diego, his gym, CrossFit Stronghold is a good place to add to your bucket list.
