Why do you work with Trisutto?
I believe that there is not a formula that can be used for all athletes, and the Trisutto methodology showed me an athlete should be considered individually and according to their own needs, which can only be developed in the direct relationship of confidence between coach and athlete.
The methodology is not about numbers, but to develop the individual to their potential, and for that, it is necessary to develop the best in each athlete, whether professional or age- group.
