2010 Florida Gators National Championship Softball Team
My most crowning moment as a sports trainer was when one of my favorite clients and families sharing a moment winning the 2014 NCAA Softball College World Championships.
Former client Stephanie Tofft sharing a precious moment with her family with the national championship trophy while at the University of Florida. She was the starting 3rd baseman who played extremely well in the championship game to help them win it all versus Alabama.
Stephanie was introduced to my sports training program when she was 11yrs old and continued until she was in college. A gifted young athlete who had the "will and determination" to succeed. Most of all one of the most competitive young athletes you would ever want to meet.
Going to the 2009 MLB Hall of Fame Introduction of Rickey Henderson was a great experience. Meeting some of the all-time greats and speaking about their experiences allows me to share these moments with my athletes.
That is my "training methodology" when working with young athletes. What makes a trainer "special" is his or her ability to work by educating young athletes of the benefits of sports training.
I show you how to attain your goals with workout programs that are designed to build the confidence you need to play your best at all times. "If you believe you can achieve what you want"

Today's youth sports activities are very competitive. Every coach, parent, and player wants to win. The pressure is on young athletes to perform and play to win games or matches.
Playing competitive youth sports requires a lot of time, commitment, money, and travel for most young athletes. Today's Parents are more involved than ever with their sons and daughters playing sports.
How do you teach your son or daughter to compete in such an competitive environment and still enjoy their sport?
My answer to this question is to keep sports fun and enjoyable. That is the #1 reason boys and girls play sports, because it is fun. When sports are no longer fun kids can become overly emotional and not enjoy the game anymore.
Coaches, Parents, and Players need to realize that every kid is not going pro or going to college on a full ride scholarship.
However you can make your child have wonderful experiences with the sports of their choice. Teach them how to compete and be a good sport win or lose.
My youth sports training program is designed to teach boys and girls how to train and be the best athlete they can. I also help them how to have a healthy lifestyle that will carry them far beyond the court or playing field.
I have certifications and memberships to some of the best youth associations and organizations in the United States:
National Strength and Conditioning Association
ASA Softball Association
Amateur Baseball Coaches Association
National Soccer Coaches Association of America
American Volleyball Coaches Association
USA Swimming Association
The First Tee Golf Association
USA Youth Football Organization
