About this pro

Applied Pressure (AP) Performance Training is an integrated system designed to accomplish any person’s need. (e.g. strength & conditioning, sports skills development, weight loss, powerlifting, etc.) This system is evidence-based with a primary focus on progressive low-risk injury development.


Hello, my name is Denzel Copeland, Founder and CEO of Applied Pressure (AP) Performance Training. I was born & raised here in the Santa Clara County where I found my passion for sports, fitness, and coaching. At a very young age, I began to explore my interests in multiple sports; including soccer, basketball, volleyball, track & field, etc. Playing sports as a child equipped me with many physical, emotional, and interpersonal benefits; such as proper motor skills development (coordination), social skills development, and most importantly self-confidence. Ultimately, I gravitated more towards basketball where I produced the most success. Luckily, I had the pleasure of playing at multiple levels for basketball ranging from YMCA youth camps to NJB (National Junior Basketball), to more competitive play in AAU (Amateur Athletic Union) to Varsity High School Athletics, to Collegiate NCAA to Semi-Professional ABA.

I attended Santa Teresa High School in San Jose, California, where I played three years of varsity basketball, winning CCS championship in my Senior Year, as well as medaling in cross country and track & field. I served as a Captain and Starter for my basketball team, earning multiple awards including: Scholar Athlete, Junior of the Year, Team’s Most Valuable Player, etc. On the verge of leaving Santa Teresa High School, I had two basketball scholarship offers, one from UC Santa Cruz and the other from Bethany University. I signed with Bethany University but due to the school’s investment issues, Bethany University was shut down. After hearing such terrible news, I was extremely distraught but this did not stop my pursuit to becoming a collegiate athlete. Instead of choosing a four-year university and trying to “walk onto a team,” I chose to go to De Anza College to keep playing and hopefully obtain a scholarship, which I eventually achieved. Earning All-Conference both years, I gained the attention of eight four-year colleges, including Lewis & Clark University, California State University of San Marcos and Texas A&M International. After visiting and talking with several basketball coaches, I decided to sign the letter of intent with the Texas A&M Dustdevils NCAA Division 2. Playing basketball at that level, I finally understood how important it is to care for your body. It was at Texas A&M International University where I found my passion for health & fitness as a whole. My main focus is to pass on my excitement for fitness and to help my clients reach all of their goals. With my knowledge of being an athlete, I can encourage you to be the best version of yourself. I want to help people discover what their bodies are capable of doing and to teach them safe and proper technique. That foundation alone will serve them for the rest of their lives!! In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure!

    I liked that Denzel pushes my limits every time, so I get better at each exercise every session. He also understands how much I am capable of doing, which even I sometimes don’t know. I also liked that he gives me a mixture of bodyweight and weight exercises depending on my goals or the sport that I am playing. I have seen a huge improvement in my strength and stamina after I started training with him!

    What I liked about working with Applied Pressure Performance training is that coach Denzel pushed me to be the best version of myself. Coach Denzel was also able to show me the potential that I never knew I had.
