Hunt Stresses Importance Of Varied Training
Gavin Hunt Makes players do boxing and yoga
Gavin Hunt is not a coach to be taken lightly. He is also known to use alternate training habits in the local league. What accounts for Bidvest Wits stunning transformation under the former Hellenic defender?
Speaking to Bidvest Wits' official website, Hunt stated that he made his players engage in alternative exercises such as boxing and yoga, and said the reason was simple:
“If you are a cyclist and I tell you to get on your bicycle every day and ride it, there are going to be days when you get a bit bored. So there are many times when you need to actively take the players' minds off what they do and subconsciously make them do things that are still good for fitness, team building and good for the spirit. Whatever sport you play you need an occasional break to get away from it all.”
Furthermore, a couple years ago, at SuperSport United, Gavin Hunt was one of the first PSL coaches to introduce weight training for his team.
