As a parent of teenagers, I have witnessed two worrisome trends – sport specialization at such a young age and free time being consumed by electronics. Sport specialization kids spend too much time practicing sport specific skills and not enough time building athletic and injury prevention skills. Electronics are keeping many kids from getting the exercise they need. My goal at G4 Performance Training is to offer parents a solution to both of these problems by offering a variety of youth training programs that fit every kid’s needs.

Ewa has spent the past 15 years coaching junior tennis players across the country. She is in the process of obtaining her NSCA – Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification and enjoys working with young athletes “off the court” in order to improve their athletic skills and conditioning “on the court.”
Sports and fitness were such a positive influence during my childhood, providing me with self-esteem and life skills. I am passionate about helping kids become better athletes, but more importantly, I want to help them build confidence and find happiness in a world that is fraught with the pressures of social media and intense competition to succeed.
