Think of the first person that made a real difference in the landscape of your athletic career. Hopefully, it was someone who was positive and understood the motivation and courage necessary to just come out and compete with the team.
One of the best parts about our roles as a strength + conditioning coaches is that it gives us the opportunity to teach young people that anything is possible with consistent hard work and effort. In the gym, as well as in life, hard work and effort is rewarded with results. From a basic training environment to the most advanced – it should not be pretentious, intimidating, and should never deter the average person. Phones off, music turned up, hard work being done.
We’ve created an environment that fosters learning, patience, being fundamentally sound, and above all, being accountable. When athletes know that their coach is accountable, and they are held accountable as well, trust is built and becomes the catalyst for a successful program. Our primary objective is to build a foundation for the athlete to become a strong minded person! The sports come and go, but mental strength and a positive attitude are primary for life long success.
Building a high level youth athlete starts with the mind they must believe. We program events that are easily measurable, and don't let them bite off more than they can chew - at least right off the bat. Along the way, we’ll change the standard and expect more, encourage often, and have unwavering confidence in the athletes ability to achieve all tasks.
When you genuinely care more about the progress of your athletes as opposed to your own agenda, personal development and progress, that’s when you've truly bridged the gap to becoming a real coach. We are a facility full of Coaches, more apt to discuss state champions, college athlete success stories, NFL athletes than their 2k row personal best or max squat. We are in the business of helping others achieve success. Their success is our success.
We take pride in coaching with intent, going the extra mile, spotting with conviction, all the time.
Lead from the front.
