"I'm extremely grateful for the families, coaches, teammates, and experiences along my journey of sport and life. Embracing them as part of my team and learning through my process, I genuinely acknowledge the powerful impact sport has on our personal growth. From these people and experiences I found motivation to diligently research in developing specialized programs for individuals, from how we motivate someone to how we physically train them. Through it all is a process of growth at all levels (physical, mental, social, and spiritual). I'm honored to be apart of the process in helping others reach their Personal Best." -Coach Hudgens
