Performance Trainer Dylan BirdsellMaking A Positive Impact: Dylan’s Coaching Philosophy

Dylan’s coaching philosophy is rooted in passion and giving back to athletes with big aspirations. He believes athletes can reach their full potential if they are willing to work. Dylan strives to be the resource he did not have as a player. As a player, Dylan wanted to learn everything that could hold a player back, regardless of skill, in-game IQ, or natural athleticism. This desire to know what can hold a player back has led him to work hard to understand all fitness pathways that could benefit his clients.

Dylan takes a patient and scientific approach to his training, teaching foundational skills required for success in the long term. He desires to create the most efficient players that can fit into any team structure at any level. 

Private Basketball Trainer in Denver

Dylan played high school basketball at Willis High School, where he lettered for two seasons, co-captained his Junior year, and captained his Senior year. He was awarded an honorable mention for all district in both years. Dylan was initially recruited to play for Lindenwood-Bellville University before transferring and walking on at Bacone College. When his desire to play faded, he transitioned into coaching and training for the remainder of his college years. 

He was a student assistant at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor for the Men’s Basketball program. He volunteered to coach at the varsity level for both boys and girls and helped run junior high programs for boys and girls after his time with UMHB Men. During the summer season, he traveled the country coaching with Point Guard College on their camp’s circuit. He learned about winning culture, organization, and communication at the highest levels from other professional, college, and successful high school coaches worldwide. 

Dylan took two years off from coaching to focus on his education. He received his Bachelor of Science and Masters of Science degrees in Exercise Physiology. While continuing his education, Dylan took pride in the challenge of learning about the body as much as possible. He wanted to learn about movement, athleticism, and nutrition, so he applied for and received an internship with Landow Performance in Denver, Colorado. Here he learned about the biomechanics (study of movement) of sprinting, change of direction, and weight lifting. This new perspective has shaped his approach to training as he has seen how the body matures and compensates for lack of strength, mobility, and stability.

Training is critical to improving one’s game. Over the years, Robert has helped young men and women improve their game and basketball IQ through tailored coaching programs that better the individual on and off the court.
