Over the past several years numerous trainers and coaches involved in the game of basketball have reached out to Ganon Baker as a mentor and consultant as they start or grow their personal brand as a trainer and as a coach.

As a result Ganon formed the Ganon Baker Basketball Nation of trainers, a program that has all the necessary tools to help those that seek assistance in their growth to become the best trainer or coach that they possibly can be.

We are proud to say that among the many trainers in the USA that have joined the GBB Nation this year we had people reach out (and have joined or in the process of joining) for Ganon’s wisdom on and off the court from countries as Lithuania, France, England, India, Italy, Greece, The Netherlands, China and many more.
