PNG - 61.8 kb Gilles Coustellier has just recovered from a bad sprain and has started training again, with the support of those who have been around him since the start and who have helped him to reach the highest level in the sport, with Michel Coustellier, his father, trainer and mechanic at their head. The French, European and World Champion has also been preparing for the 2010 season with a new coach; Xavier Barbier. Xavier is a specialist in sports performance who has earned his stripes coaching American football and basketball players. He is a well know sports coach who is a part of the new so-called ‘global’ generation that takes into account all aspects of performance. His training concept targets all the different aspects of health and performance: prevention of pain and injury, improving physical and muscular qualities (explosiveness, speed and coordination), improving aerobic capabilities focussing on the ability to repeat the short explosive efforts that are so important in trials.
