Bas de Bever: "Coaching is a fantastic profession, it is great to be able to give athletes direction in their development through knowledge transfer. Because you work with people, it is also a complex subject in which you are juggling with many factors on an individual level to allow the athlete to develop in the right way in the pursuit of his / her goals. This is also the challenge for me, but also gives me the necessary stress over time. In this course you will also deal with factors that lie outside your core business (coaching). I noticed that especially these factors gave me (after 15 years) too much negative energy and disturbed the balance for a long time in a way that this was also taking its toll on a personal level. I have written a fantastic chapter in my own 'book of life' in these 15 years. I will regularly read this chapter with great pleasure. My feeling says that now is the time for a new chapter. "

EVERY ONE KNOWS THAT RE-SETTING YOUR BARS IS THE WORST POSSIBLE THING. IT TAKES FOREVER FOR YOUR MIND TO AGREE THAT THE BARS FEEL HOW THEY DID BEFORE SLIPPING. WE WANTED TO DESIGN A STEM THAT CLAMPED TIGHT AND EVENLY AT THAT. WE HAD SEEN STEM BOLTS SNAP FROM A ROCKY PLATE AND UN-EVEN TIGHTENING. WITH THE PURGE STEM WE WANTED STRENGTH AND DURABILITY SO WE WENT WITH A FULLY CNC 6061 ALI BLOCK INCLUDING A CNC’D UNITED GRAPHIC ON THE SIDE. YOU WILL NOTICE THE CLAMPING SYSTEM CLAMPS COMPLETELY SHUT UP FRONT. THIS IS TO STOP THE UN-EVEN TIGHTENING.
