Wow! Let?s not start getting all up in a frenzy here. Again the system is never complete (no system is), nor do we (Chris and I) claim to know everything. We have been lucky to learn some great things that have worked very well for us. The system makes plenty of sense and is not hard to understand…really!
We attack where athletes need help…no more no less. Training is as complex as the person talking about it makes it. If you want the science explanation…you?ll get one answer, if you want the layman?s answer, we can do that too. I have seen so many articles (some of which I pull information out of) who try to complex things just the way people say we do?
This site is guilty of that also. Is that wrong? Again, we think the DVD is pretty good at explaining how we train. It?s fine if it doesn?t fit your style, beliefs, or terminology, but on the other hand we like it very much. It answers almost every question I have ever had that most programs couldn?t answer. It stood the test!
I have studied a lot of different systems. All have value! I learned from every one of them. We just tried to compile what we think works, and make a DVD. A lot is Inno-Sport, some is not. The search will never stop on my part. If I stop learning or think I arrived, then I?m done coaching. I hope that doesn?t offend anyone.
I have no personal stake in this discussion either way, but let me say this: I am training to be a sprinter. With that in mind, I became quite interested in Inno-Sport from what others have said, so I went to your website. I was hoping to get some sense of what the system is all about, but unfortunately that proved impossible because your articles are so difficult to understand.
The problem stems from way too many acronyms (e.g., “PIM” or “OI”) that no one can make heads or tails of it. This is a very common complaint about the system. The articles clealry assume that the reader already have a base of knowledge about the system. I can’t tell whether this is intentional or not, but I have recommendations either way:
If the ambiguity inherent in your materials is an accident, you absolutely must find and hire an editor to help you clean the material up. Someone to rewrite all of that stuff and provide a glossary for people to understand it.
If the ambiguity is intentional, then I strongly encourage you to re-think this strategy. You offer a new approach to training but the average athlete can’t figure out what your system is all about. Then you offer the DVD which apparently makes everything really easy to understand. That is all fine and dandy, but no one is going to spend the money to buy a DVD for a system that they can’t figure out to begin with.
It’s like I have a black box and I ask you if you want to buy the contents of the box for $30. Naturally, you ask what’s it in and I give you some vague response so that you really have no idea what’s inside. Are you going to pay me? Probably not, and so it is with your DVD.
If you could write something that gave people a basic grasp of your system and put it out there for free then I have a feeling that sales of your DVD (and other products) would skyrocket. This is, afterall, a sales strategy that a lot of manufacturers use with great success.
Of course, you sound like you’re not all about making the most money, which I respect, but this strategy is also the best way to disseminate your product to as many people as possible. Spread your message by making it less difficult to comprehend.
