I have over 15 years combined experience as a track athlete and a coach. I have been a strength and speed coach for the last 9 years, 6 of which were at the collegiate level.
I’ve coached hundreds of athletes and I want to provide you with a winning strength training program at an affordable price.
Strength training programs like the one I created for the 2013 WSFL Championship Football Team – that season alone 17 athletes signed NCAA D1!
I have a winning model – and it won’t cost you or your family thousands of dollars to train.
With over a decade of experience as a coach and athlete, I’ve developed a program that has been tested and proven to achieve coveted results such as strength, power and speed. Results that have helped dozens of college and amateur athletes. My program structure is designed to minimize injury and maximize recovery.
How is this possible?
By creating a COMPREHENSIVE training program. This program is now available to you online through my easy-to-access mobile app.
The complete human performance program is broken up into specific goals achieved over successive 4-week blocks called mesocycles.
Each mesocycle is designed to be successive to the last. In this way, the skills being taught in each phase progressively build on one another until you achieve the most technical level of mastery.
Take a look at just some of the other program highlights below:
EVERY ONLINE PROGRAM INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING
A new workout program each month.
Each program is slightly harder than the last, building upon strength and skill sets in a programmed manner for long-term success! Workouts are rolled out in 4-week phases called mesocycles. The number of mesocycles in each program will depend on your sport package and the season. Those details are listed on the sales page of each program.
In-App Exercise Videos
Each exercise has an associate video demonstration and description of form. The app has a compare feature for self-guided clients. 1-1 coaching clients can send and receive video feedback on exercises from their coach.
A Customizable Macronutrient Plan
Each phase comes with a spreadsheet to help you calculate your customized macros. Along with this is a food list and sample nutrient timing schedules to help you optimize your nutrition and your performance.
In-App Habit Tracking
Habit tracking is now available in our app and easily provides you with daily or weekly reminders of small habits that add up to big changes over time!
Free support knowledge base
A free knowledge base is available for training questions, trouble shooting the app and basic weight room 101.
Weekly Email Check-In From Your Coach
Each week your coach will email you new goals and focus points for the week. This will help guide your training and give you one task to improve or master each week.

WHO SHOULD JOIN
Amateur Athletes Who Need Speed Training
All of our training programs are designed to improve speed, power, and strength. Because we set up all of our programming with speed in mind, we ensure earlier phases are conducive to speed development as well.
Amateur Athletes Looking for A DIY Way
Athletes record workouts & communicate with their coach through any mobile device. After the athlete saves the workout, it is then sent to the trainer’s mobile app to review. With this add-on, you can track all time records and progress!
High School Athletes
High school JV or Varsity athletes looking to take their training to the next level.
Junior College Athletes
Junior college athletes looking to get D1 ready. Our system was built, tried and proven on JuCo athletes!
Are you satisfied with your current strength training program? Have you gain mass but lost speed? I hear that story a lot. With our system, speed is the focus, so you can be certain that gains will not mean a loss in speed!
Amateur Athletes Looking for an Affordable Solution Without Losing Quality
Athletes can record form and get feedback on mechanical details through the app and through 1-1 communication with your coach. It’s like watching film but for the weight room. (Note this is a premium feature.)
