My name is Christian Marin Diaz; I was born and raised in Spain with a savvy and educated background as a soccer player as well as a personal trainer. After a few years as head soccer coach of AC alliance in Diamond bar, CA and Celtics in Rialto, CA I had decided to focus more in what I am passionate about; player development and personal training. Accredited with a “National-C coaching license” from U.S. Soccer’s Coaching Education Program, along with my European and US soccer experience; is a good mix to bring something different to the table of those who considerably want to improve their skills. I have played in the European professional soccer club of Malaga C.F for 4 years and at college level in the USA at California Baptist University with a full ride scholarship.
* Besides 1 on 1 training we have trained recreational team such as AYSO and West Valley Recreational League teams helping the kids develop the right way and faster (having a parent as a coach is the worst mistake a team can make, even if he/she has a coaching license and the knowledge)
I have been playing soccer since I was five and I was one of the worst soccer players on my team. I could not hit the ball with my left at all, up to the point that my coach did not know where to put me in the field. I was a disaster but what I did have was speed and a huge passion for the sport. I was willing to do anything to become a great player. Because of my speed I played as a defender but I always wanted to be an attacking player. I was tired of sitting on the bench every weekend and I was not enjoying soccer anymore. I once cried after a game when returning home. My family could not stand to see a nine year old child so sad so they asked what I thought about personal soccer training. I trained for three years and I practiced three hours per week just with my trainer right before my team practice. In those three years I became a complete player up to the point where I became the starting forward for my team and top scorer. Having a personal trainer and becoming a better player not only gave me personal satisfaction but agents of my State Team in Spain scouted me. I was selected to play two consecutive youth tournaments with my State Team helping them win both of them with my goals and assists. After those tournaments I was recruited by the professional club Malaga C.F in which I played for 4 years; it was the best experience of my life. I respect the game and I am so lucky with what it has given me.
