About this pro
My name is Coach A.J., an athlete, trainer, entrepreneur and mentor. My goal is to help young athletes get on the path to success by building confidence on and off the field. If you’re prepared to #GETRIGHTORGETLEFT, you’ve come to the right place!
As a lifelong athlete with academic training in organizational psychology, I’ve always been interested in how self-confidence can influence performance on the field, in the workplace, in school and life. After earning my B.S. in Psychology, I continued to play football while studying human physiology, earning my National Certifications in Strength and Conditioning, Sports Nutrition, Sports Performance. My combined passion for sports, fitness and human psychology led me to this unique position as a Sports Performance Specialist and entrepreneur as well as now Coaching Junior College Football.
Athletes of all ages face greater challenges today. Not only do they have to perform well in their respective sports, but they also have to stand out from the crowd in order to try to catch the attention of recruiters-- something that isn’t possible by simply scoring a few goals per season. My clients are encouraged to take an aggressive approach to getting ahead of the competition by fine-tuning their skills on the field (or court!) while simultaneously building their self-confidence. Part of this approach is aimed at getting young athletes to shift their focus from thinking locally to thinking nationally. Getting recruited requires hard work and focus on more than just their athletic abilities - interpersonal skills and academic performance play a major role as well. My mission is not just to help get athletes recruited. Many of my clients’ parents simply want to encourage their child to become better students of their sport, improve their skills, or prepare themselves for life outside of school, where “putting the work in” is an essential ingredient for success. Whether you’re a parent looking for advice on how best to support your child’s dream of playing professionally or an experienced athlete hoping to improve your game, I’m here to help.
