Lax Journal Podcast #13: Jon Beck, Elite Hoops Trainer and Life Coach

You ever followed someone on twitter because every time they post something you say to yourself, “that’s an awesome piece of advice!” For me, that person is Jon Beck of PureSweat, which is a basketball training company. Jon also works with youth, high school, college, and professional athletes. Jon’s goal is to develop great habits, teach leadership, and create more efficient players on and off the court. The best part of Jon’s work is it translates. Hoops, football, hockey, lacrosse, whatever the team sport, the principles and ideas taught by Coach Beck translate. In a recent sit-down interview with Coach Beck, LILJ Editor Corey Winkoff asked some important questions to help educate the Long Island lacrosse community.
