“Athlon has always been on the cutting edge when it
comes to the development of athletes…”Larry Lee coach of Cal Poly baseball team testimonial on the benefits he and his athletes have found with training locally with us


“Athlon has always been on the cutting edge when it comes to the development of athletes, never becoming stagnant in their methods of training.  Being the independent thinkers that they are, they’re able to adapt routines that are sport specific and very effective.  The training environment that is created is one that is intense and productive.  The Athlon Team will not let a day go by that they don’t better themselves in the sports performance field.”

“I had absolutely no idea that I could ever jump five inches higher than last year!”

“I had my league finals meet yesterday, and I did great!  Thanks to my training at Athlon Elite, I won the high jump by four inches (I got a new PR of 5’5″). My goal for the season was to jump my height, which I did. Now, the school record is only an inch away, and I’m hoping to break it next meet.  I also won the triple jump, and I placed third in the long jump.  Thank you so much for training me this season, I had absolutely no idea that I could ever jump five inches higher than last year!”

What’s The Best Decision You Can Make For Yourself?

If you’re honest with yourself, you know you need to be doing something more to keep up with the “stiff competition” out there these days.  Just practicing your sport is not enough!  And trying to follow a conditioning routine you pulled from some magazine is only going to get you hurt and set you back even more. The fact is you need a coach to ensure that your conditioning level is not just enough to make it, but is at a level where you know you’re going to walk into the competition as the best conditioned athlete… and walk off with the WIN.  No questions.
