“Hey TTS, I picked up your bands 2-3 weeks ago and have been doing the bands warmup each day before I workout and today my coach took me aside and asked me what happened. He can see how I have gotten faster on the field these past few weeks. I just wanted to say thanks for everything that you have been doing! Also, keep up the 30 day leadership/mentality training on Insta.”
