About this pro

After suffering a traumatic leg injury that kept me sidelined at the Olympic games, The Hart Method training philosophy was created. The program is composed of 8 maxims- Ground, gravity, Integrity, Joy, harmony, freedom, now, and action. As a world class trainer, other than maximizing power and speed, my focus with athletes is to help them develop a champion mindset, embody essence, ground their personal power, and provide each individual with the tools to self-correct movement on and off the field. 

Athletes can apply The Hart Method approach to their existing workout regime and produce great changes. Embodying the 8 maxims can create possibilities in physical performance, life, and your environment by bringing a new sense of fulfillment and optimum performance from the inside out. 

Optimum performance will naturally emerges by understanding how to create momentum. By incorporating The Hart Method, athletes will develop a deeper sense of awareness to minimize setbacks and maximize results.

    Armando is a no-nonsense coach who tells it like it is, but also shows compassion and patience with his athletes. He is a great communicator and teacher, and truly motivated my son to get better.

  • Neeraj Gupta

    Highly pleased with coaching and the methods employed as they are very practical and science based. Seeing very significant improvement in not only running but motivation and dedication for our daughter. Great job Armando 👍

  • Zuzana Kucharovicova

    Armando was super friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. Made me feel welcomed and motivated and I’ve learned so much in just one session! Priceless experience! Loved working with him and will definitely contact him again whenever I’m back in LA!

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

After a 15-30 minute phone interview, we decide if my trianing would be a good fit.  We agree to 8 (90 min.) sessions with a specific plan to improve the athlete's needs to maximize his or her goals. Speed will be the foundation of the training cycle while developing a solid mindset for overall sports and life performance. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was a world-class sprinter and trained with the world's best coaches.  I have developed my own training system based on my own personal experience infused with the teachings I have gained throughout. I have created my own training system and authored a book called The Hart Method.  I have trained professional baseball players, gold medal olympians, and numerous of amateur athletes to increase their physical output while decreasing their risk of injury by moving smarter, faster, and more powerful. 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

My training system is a package based on 8 (90 minute) sessions priced at $950.  $475 is due at the beginning of the first session and $475 is due at the end of the 8th session. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching after I failed to compete at the Olympics in 1996 due to physical trauma.  I dedicated myself to helping athletes avoid setbacks while maximizing their potential. Sprinting gave me the understanding of how to move my body in the most optimum form.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with all types of athletes of all sports.  From the high school level to the professional and olympic level.  

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The Olympics of course!

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

I would advice every student to hire a teacher that has a deep understanding of physical movement.  Understanding how to move one's body builds the foundation for the athlete's career. The goal is to maximize each athlete's potential while reducing the risk of setbacks due to injury.  

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

1. Years of experience

2. Their specific experience related to the athlete's sport

3. Does the teacher have a deep knowledge of physical movement?
