One Hammer Strength Clinic in 2019, One Big Chance to Learn From Some of the Best
For 27 years, Hammer Strength Clinics have offered attendees the chance to learn from some of the top strength and conditioning minds in athletics, and share ideas with their peers.
In 2019, we’re doing things a little differently. Instead of a few clinics around the United States, we’re focusing on one big clinic at Georgia State University in Atlanta on April 26 and 27.
Clinics are all about understanding performance. The first Hammer Strength Clinic took place in Cincinnati, where Hammer Strength was founded, in 1992. At the time, strength and conditioning coaches were starting to become a more valuable asset to professional and college athletics programs. Now, strength and conditioning professionals have evolved into an essential part of athletic programs and personal training facilities. Successful strength and conditioning professionals develop over time. Being exposed to new techniques, philosophies and methods help coaches fine tune their craft and build athletes that perform at the highest level.
The clinic at Georgia State features presentations by an impressive list of strength and conditioning pros including:
- Joey Batson, a strength and conditioning veteran who has been a part of two National Championship football teams in the last three years at Clemson University.
- The host of the clinic, John Sisk, is currently the head football strength coach at Georgia State and has spent time at Furman, Vanderbilt, Western Carolina and Clemson.
- Kaz Kazadi is the assistant athletic director for human performance at Southern Methodist University and has earned a handful of Strength Coach of the Year honors.
