The Steve Nash training program can help you develop your endurance and conditioning to become a first class floor general on the basketball courts.
Nash is considered one of the finest point guards to ever play in the NBA. With his creative passing abilities and one of the deadliest shooting strokes in the league, Nash has been a long-time leader of one of the most potent offenses in NBA for the Phoenix Suns. Nash was born in South Africa in 1974, where his dad was playing professional soccer. He played college basketball for Santa Clara before being selected in the 1st round of the 1996 NBA draft by the Suns. Though traded two seasons later to the Dallas Mavericks where he would team with Dirk Nowitzki, Nash returned to the Suns in 2003. He is a two-time Most Valuable Player of the league winning the honors in both the 2004 and 2005 seasons. Without a doubt, Nash will some day be enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame.
