Description of the Organization

The priority of ETS Performance is to provide unmatched speed, power, deceleration, energy system development, movement and performance mastery training for serious athletes who were fully committed to maximizing their genetic physical and psychological potential. In order to do that, I knew I had to create a distinct and more advanced system of training than what was currently available in the training profession. It is crucial for every athlete to develop the basic fundamental athletic and biomechanical movements, strength techniques and deceleration protocols through a customized and ability appropriate plan in order to truly maximize their potential. At ETS, every athlete will experience a next-level training atmosphere that canýt be matched and is equally focused on character development, accountability and competition as we deliver next level performance results. Every ETS athlete will leave each session understanding the physical objective for that session, but also understand the importance of consistency, dedication and commitment to ensure they are maximizing their results.

As a coach and an intern, it was my responsibility to train the athletes on proper strength and speed mechanics, in order to enhance their athleticism. Additionally, it was vital for me to utilize my communication skills in order to build relationships with all of the athletes, in order for them to trust my coaching and feel comfortable around me. It was important for me to motivate the athletes day in and day out to push themselves to their limits, especially with the correct, mindful training.
