About this pro

Hey! I'm Abel Abraham and I'm currently a senior in college! Played varsity basketball and varsity track & field since middle school; consider myself to be a tenacious athlete and I have a true passion for improving my body day by day. If you really want to be pushed to the limit, let me work you out! I'm the captain of my church basketball team and strive to make everyone around me better as I run the point guard position. Look forward to training with you!

I enjoyed the process. It's all about trusting the process, a phrase made famous by Joel Embiid from the 76ers and I truly resonate with that quote. The journey will be long and bumpy, but you will reap the benefits with the proper information and drive.

    Abel is an absolutely phenomenal personal trainer. He is so passionate about what he does and brings an incredible amount of energy and enthusiasm to every session. He motivates me to work harder every day and constantly pushes me to reach my full physical potential. He takes the time to thoroughly understand each of your fitness goals, what strengths to build on, and specific weaknesses to improve on. I’m truly amazed by the amount of progress I’ve made with Abel in just a few short weeks - I feel so much stronger and healthier than ever before. I’ve never been someone who enjoys going to the gym, but I genuinely look forward to every session with Abel because he knows how to make working out fun and exciting. He’s always prepared with fresh new workouts each day, incorporating compound exercises to activate multiple muscle groups. He is extremely knowledgeable about every facet of health and fitness, everything from slow vs. fast twitch muscle fibers to the intricacies of plant-based protein. Every question I’ve asked has received a throughly researched, highly scientific, evidence-based answer from Abel. Abel has truly gone above and beyond to help me achieve my fitness goals and I’m so excited to continue training with AthELITE Academy!

    Abel is a fantastic trainer! He tailors the workouts to my specific fitness goals, pushes me to perform at my highest ability, all while making sure I avoid injury. He is very knowledgable and explains the reasons and anatomical underpinnings for every exercise. Overall, you will see results and have a great experience!

    Abel is a great trainer and motivator. He knows his stuff when it comes to fitness and drills and was engaged the whole time. His drills were challenging and also let me know he would be catering a specific program that would work best for me. He was also a point guard so his passes are crisp on shooting drills (which is a huge plus!). My workout consisted of a combination of drills which kept me moving in quick spurts and stationary in shooting drills. The hour went by quick! I would highly recommend for kids who are learning to play and want to learn the basics the right way and those who want to get in better shape or work on fine tuning your game.

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

Varies based on age, skill level and individual goals. Programs are speficially tailored to each individual's needs. I will make it my mission for you to leave the gym satisfied that you will improve and be better every day we train together. 

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

7 years of basketball training affiliated through Junior Varsity and Varsity team play in middle school and high school -- where my love for training originated. It has proven to be very effective as I learned through my coaches and their logic behind each of their drills.

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

Depends on multiple factors including location, length of workout, size of group (individual, partner, small group, team, clinic).

How did you get started teaching?

I trained my first basketball client last summer when a father and son saw me randomly train one of my friends at LA Fitness. He stopped and asked if I could train his son for basketball and improve his athleticism and I was glad to do that. He's been my only client thus far since my summer was busy that year.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with elementary kids, high school students, college athletes, as well as retired adults looking to make a difference in their lifestyle for fat-loss!

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

I think it's important to find someone who practices what they teaches. Especially at my age and with the level of play I try to be at, I'm constantly trying to get better and that, in return, will feed off to my clients because I want him/her to reach the maximum potential that he/she can attain. In addition, realize that not all successful and knowledgeable basketball coaches are good people; make sure you find a trainer/coach who is positive and supportive of your individuals goals. 

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

Define your goals, where you want to be in both the short term (next 3-6 months) and long term (2-5 years)
