Author / Cali Hinzman


The life of a college or professional strength coach is fraught with highs and lows. In an industry dependent on so many variables outside your control, it’s a wonder why anyone would build a career on a team’s wins and losses. But, that’s exactly what Aaron Ausmus [@aaron_ausmus] successfully did at several universities. However, Aaron will tell you first hand that you don’t know coaching until you know why you’re doing it.

Hear how Aaron put together his own training and coaching philosophy that would eventually lead him to spearhead his own program. As Aaron states, the time when you learn the most is when you are in charge.

Aaron is now part of the tight knit crew of Sorinex, still coaching and being a resource for athletes looking for that guidance. This former thrower knows what it’s like to coach oneself and after all of his experience in athletics, he believes that mentoring is one of the greatest gifts a coach can provide.



It’s time to get inspired by Coach Ausmus. Head to his instagram page, [@penandpaperstrengthapp] to see what motivational words he’s scratched down today. Or just creep on his lifting videos [@aaron_ausmus].
