The amount of training per week depends on the plan you choose. Some athletes choose unlimited to get the most training possible, while other athletes choose a few days per week. If you are in multiple sports or you are planning on strength training outside of Gridiron, I recommend training with us 2-3 days per week.

Yes we do! At the youth level, we focus on developing young athletes to be the best student athlete they can be. The workouts are all body weight exercises to start before progressing into resistance training. We love training youth athletes to reach their athletic potential by developing their balance, coordination, form and technique, speed, agility, and sports performance skills.

Our training methods and plans are designed specifically for athletes and have been tested and proven by thousands of athletes around the world who have seen results.
