Coach Jin is from Seattle, Washington. He spent three years studying under the Washington State director for the National Strength Conditioning Association earning his B.S. in Exercise Science from Seattle Pacific University. Graduating Cum Laude, Jin was nominated for the 2014 Washington Society of Health and Physical Educators Emerging Leader Award. He is a certified EXOS Performance Specialist and certified Eleiko Strength Coach. During his undergraduate, Jin spent a year shadowing with the University of Washington’s Olympic Sports Strength and Conditioning Program which included men and women’s basketball, track and field, soccer, golf, tennis, and men’s baseball. In 2016, Jin was excepted into EXOS’s prestigious internship program to work with Division 1 collegiate, NFL, NFLPA, and UFC athletes. He was immediately hired on as an EXOS Performance Specialist upon internship completion to work with Sereno FC and Valparaiso FC youth soccer teams. Much of Jin’s success stems from his mentorships under some of the best coaches in the industry. This has allowed him to develop a systematic approach for athletic development to coach any athlete at every level.
Learning from the best has helped me formulate my coaching philosophy, “The master navigator knows there are many roads that lead to Rome, and he finds the best road to take. And each road requires different navigation skills. Therefore, to apply each skill we must have a systematic approach to training. Within that we must train movements, not muscles, at various intensities, speeds, volumes and frequency, and in all planes of motion fluctuating at different times of the year.”
