'To lift young athletes to heights never imagined and let them go so they can realize it was in them all along. '
At Blast Athletic Performance we will provide a training experience that improves athletic movement and total body strength while reducing the risk of injury. We promote positivity, enthusiasm and a hard work ethic regardless of skill or athletic ability.
As a former collegiate baseball player I dealt with many injuries my entire career. While spending most of my time rehabbing I began to gravitate toward physical therapy and spent four years as a Physical Therapy Aid at a Sports Physical Rehabilitation Center. While working at the physical therapy facility, I learned how to rehabilitate various sports related injuries as well as how to reduce the risk of those injuries. In that time I also began to train young athletes in various sports and was afforded the opportunity to work at the top rated speed school in the nation "The Parisi Speed School" as a Performance Coach. Within a matter of two years I was promoted to Head Performance Coach and shortly after Director heading the entire sports performance program.
With over 10 years of experience I've trained over 75 teams and over 700 athletes in various sports such as baseball, soccer, football, volleyball, lacrosse, basketball, hockey and ultimate frisbee. Athletes trained range from a 6 year old learning how to do a jump and land without falling , to a professional athlete looking to gain an edge and stay healthy for the upcoming season. I am certified as a Speed and Movement specialist as well as a Youth and Fitness Specialist through the IYCA. I am extremely proud to bring to North Georgia the same proven methods that have helped so many young athletes reach their goals.
