Liam “Taku” Bauer is the co-founder of HybridFitness.tv. “Truth, Not Trend” is the slogan for Hybrid Fitness and Taku takes a thoughtful and scientific approach to the way he trains his clientele.

 

Like many good coaches, Taku was first an athlete himself. He was active from an early age in both skateboarding and soccer. He continued playing soccer after college until an injury sidelined his budding professional career.

 

Taku has strong feelings about the amount of time spent in a gym. There is no need to spend long hours in the gym performing ineffective workouts and exercises. Said Taku, “I believe one should perform the least amount of work to produce an optimum response relative to the individual’s needs, goals, abilities, limitations and preferences, and while safe training practices are applied accordingly.”

 

This particular cycle of programming was designed by Taku for athletes involved in "open field" sports, such as soccery, rugby, and lacrosse. That being said, if this plan is followed diligently it is sure to offer excellent results for any takers.
