“Without an all-round and good physical background there is it no special future”

About Sportsbasics

“no boundaries and a bit smarter”

Sportsbasics.com is based on Mats Mejdevis concept Sportsbasics. Sportsbasics.com is a pedagogical tool for sports coaches to build and develop athlete’s different abilities. The intention of this site, is to enable all sport coaches of any level, gender, prior knowledge and sports interest, to get help finding different exercises that fit their athlete’s immediate level. This also applies for physical education teachers at all stages, seeking inspiration for physical education in schools.

Mats has through many years noticed that there is a great need to ensure and develop the basics in all sports at all levels in the world.

Therefore has Mats developed, improved and above all combined “old” exercises with new opportunities. Taken care about the basics of gymnastics and directed it towards all-round development of athletes regardless to age,level, sex, sport or culture. That´s what I call Sportsbasics.

Best results are derived from the combinations of physical qualities.

The idea behind Sportsbasics is to utilize as many of the different body qualities as possible in the training of both beginning and established sportsmen and sportswomen.

Mats have collected and developed various basic exercises from gymnastics – “the basics for all sport” – and combined them with my experiences gained through my work with a wide range of different sports forms and sports personalities.

Sportsbasics trains many of the physical qualities required in sports today: position-strength, flexibility, mobility, coordination, balance, rotation / wheeling, strength, body control, body awareness, space perception and conditioning. It’s the combination of physical qualities that gives the best results!
