About this pro

Winning Circle and GrindWork Academy is not your normal training service. The GRIND is real! And we are  committed to being actively involved in the management of our students academic performance.    We are not here to just develop our athletes, we will provide support for our young men and women to attack their goals by GRINDING until they get what they work for.

Our Vision

    Our vision is to have more families out in the community participating in recreational activities instead of sitting at home with nothing to do. Winning Circle & is not for everyone, but it is for someone that is willing to put life challenges in front of them and force their dream to comply with our work ethics.  We don't ask "how can i get it" we go out and take it. Individual training is designed to attack the problem from the core and drive it out with our blood, sweat, and sacrifice. Camps and clinics are design to promote our success as athletes and to showcase the Grind and Work it takes to perform at our absolute best day in and day out.  

    We are committed to providing our users with the most reliable and most enjoyable coaches that are committed to putting our athletes to GRIND.  And not stop until our goals are met. Or your money will be returned, full refund.  We are dedicated to staying one step ahead of your opponent and take YOU to the next level!

We enjoy the results and the ability to develop our young youth to go as far as they desire to go. No matter far they want to go.

    Coach Glenn Gates helped me on and off the field. Not just for training better but living better. He motivated me when I was at my lowest...when I couldn’t finish my workouts. His coaching ability and people skills is top of the line. I highly recommend his services! Joseph Toilolo (Idaho State Univ. student)

    Excellent coaching strategy from Coach, who is quite flexible to make sure our schedules line up. I appreciate his feedback and guidance during our session and advice for things to work on when we are not in session. The Coach is absolutely very skilled and informed in training individuals who want or need additional help. The training is intense, it’s exactly what I need. Thanks Coach.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First i give each potental client a couple evaluation sessions to see if they would like to train with us. One they agree, we sit down with new client and map out a plan of action with a goal in site. We strive for all our athletes to create a dream and hit their goals while training with us.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure you do your research and you just don't go with anyone. You need to make sure he is giving you the right information regarding your position and what you from your training sessions 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do you want to work on?

How much do you want to work? 

Make sure you have your goals in order, don't let me create goals for you.
