Training alongside many high level NFL athletes has given him perspective on what it takes to make it to the top.

Training philosophy: Proving Grounds focuses on both the mental and physical aspects of sports. Neuromuscular coordination, force production and absorption, and strength are some of the aspects that we cover. Not only do these increase athletic ability, they also reduce injury risk. As we know Most of the game is played from the neck up. Proving Grounds athletes are also prepared with a mental edge, by learning mastery of skills, scheme and individual tactics for their sport and mental toughness. All of these things make proving grounds the right choice on taking your game to the next level.
