Brianne and Nik of Axis Flight School are working with fitness expert and skydiver Darrel Wang to develop this series. Darrel was an olympic trialist and professional athlete for a number of years. He has worked with Team USA Track and Field as well as Cycling, and has consulted for the MLB, NBA, and NFL.

In this video series, Darrel introduces us to exercises to enhance our skydiving experience. The specific proprioceptive skills and drills are intended to facilitate skydiving and tunnel flying specific adaptations. They may or may not directly translate to other sports.

Meet: Niklas Daniel

I am passionate about flying; be it my body, a parachute, or an airplane. It fills me with a great sense of fascination, curiosity, and purpose.
Coaching grants me the opportunity to share my skills and experience with those who have a desire to learn. I believe in building skills on a solid foundation and giving my students tangible evidence of their progress.

My coaching method is methodical yet holistic – incorporating physical as well as mental training, in a positive and constructive learning environment. I strive to find the perfect balance between ability and challenge for optimal engagement and enjoyment. My biggest reward as a coach is the joy of celebrating a student's "lightbulb moments", as they achieve their goals.
