Benissa Bulaya

Benissa Bulaya

Sports Performance Trainer & Coach

I firmly believe that it’s more than just hard work, it’s more than being diligent and focused, it’s more than the wins and losses, it’s about the love and respect you have for the game, your coaches, and teammates. The, “lonely work”, the work players do when no one is watching sets you apart from the crowd.
