Creating at athletic edge is way more than just
working out 🏋️‍♂️🏋️‍♀️and eating right🍉🍌🥗.

It requires dedication and attention to detail in regards to
techniques, film study🎥📽️🎞️, recovery, and much much more.

And forgive me for my modesty, but I know a guy that can help you with that!
Inbox us for a FREE CONSULTATION! 🤼‍♂️⚾🏈⛹️‍♀️⚽

🌒"You may be the only one that remembers the dedication it took-everything's a black & white blur in your own mind-the last set, leaving the gym later than everybody else, gasping for air to finish the final rep, staying up later to complete your work, or studying game films into the morning hours, but we guarantee you when it all comes together and it's time to perform-they will all witness your gifts, name & legacy in living color no matter what the sport is." - @athleteprepacademy ⭐️Nothing outweighs hard work, consistency, & dedication. Nothing.

There's something about fitness and hard work that become synonymous with confidence and success. Tristan came to us almost 3 months ago and it felt like he lost his MOJO- well- 32 lbs. down 👇‼️and physically seeing 👀 results- He has transformed into a whole new young leader. We aren't where we want to be, but everyday we are getting closer.

It is hard to create a unified culture & brand without investing back into our athletes. We want everybody we work with to feel a sense of pride when we begin to work together. ♻️👟So, with the idea 💡 in mind of the working parent(s); we will provide workout clothing for all our student-athletes who are apart of our team. The concept behind this is to keep our kids away from wearing their latest and greatest school clothes to workout 🏋 💦😷in—keeping them from 🚯damaging the clothes they love ❤️ the most & more then likely, an investment the parent made. 📣We will wash, dry, & store our clients personal workout apparel at the facility and have it ready for their next APA training session.

A perfect stepup should:

1. Create 3 approximate 90-degree angles at the ankles, knees, and hips

Coaches Note:📝 🎙🏈"This was my first practice at the University of Louisville. I hadn't lifted a weight a day in my life-18 years old & 223 lbs. Things would soon change in a major way. Throughout college, I fell in love with lifting weights and being fit. The struggle to stay in shape didn't end when I was in college or the NFL. It started when I left the field. Without proper nutrition and consistent work outs🏋 these days would be far behind me. Working out is part of our natural fountain of youth."⛲️ -Dexter Heyman | APA Professional Health & Sports Trainer | Youth Mentor

👟Footwork /ˈfo͝otˌwərk/ (verb not noun to us): the process of relentlessly working on speed, positioning, and proper technique to become an agile beast👹. It's the little things that separate the average and the elite. This happens to be one of them.

⛓CHAIN GANG: "Linear variable resistance training (LVRT) refers to progressively increasing the resistance with the range of motion.

Chains provide resistance through the weight of each link. As they hang off the bar and pool on the floor, the only extra weight they provide is from the links between the bar and the floor. As you lift the bar higher, more links come off the floor and add weight to the bar. "

Explosive Movement

Working an explosive movement with this triple jump up a 10-15 foot ramp... Love working with this kid Donovan Wilson. He's one of the tope 50 distance runners in the Country 👀👀!! But he still finds time to grind and get better! Don't let 8th Grade success become a 12th Grade failure! #dontgetleftbehind #MOG #respectthegrind #trusttheprocess 💪💪

A little bit of our sports specific work with Tristan King working with Super Bowl Champion Earl Heyman! Here you see them working a strike drill out of a two pt. stance and active hands on pass rush. Make sure to be working your technique constantly! Talent separates those who can and can't, passion and work ethic separate those who do and don't!! #MOG #Stayaheadofthecurve #Alwaysbeimproving

We have to make sure that we are effectively stretching, gaining flexibility and recovering! Working out effectively tears down your body and it rebuilds itself stronger. Thats how we gain muscle, it also rebuilds a little tighter unless we are stretching the right way and loosening up those areas while working out and through the lactic acid build up! Bands are great for this. If you're a consistent workout warrior get yourself some bands and make sure you're staying loose! Great job by these fellas. #MINDOVERGRIND

[10/01/16]   I was asked to write a quick synopsis of tonight's game between the Cards and the Tigers... Here it goes.

This game tonight comes down to three things.

1. Who can win on third down?

Clemson's Defensive front has consistently been one of if not the best defensive front in college football for the last five to eight years now. With the graduation of Shaq Lawson and the crew, you would expect a drop off on the defensive front, there has not been. Louisville needs positive plays on first and second downs to avoid 3rd and long situations where the Clemson front can pin their ears back and go get the qb.

Likewise, U of L has to put pressure on Deshaun Watson with their disguising and pressures up the middle and from the boundary.. D'angelo brown has got to look like the potential first round Defensive Tackle that he is. Deshaun Watson is the best quarterback in the country when he has time in the pocket... Make him uncomfortable.

The Defense that struggles to get off the field and the offense that sustiains drives will win the field position battle, and have more opportunity for points.

2. Turnovers

Creating a short field for either of these offenses will result in points 10/10 times. Winning the turnover battle is critical today for both teams. Also protecting the ball while in the redzone is critical for the offensive efforts for both ball clubs today... nothing can thwart momentum and change the demeanor of a team like an untimely turnover.

3. Big Plays

These are two of the most explosive offenses in the Country, so it will be imperative for both of these defenses to play gap sound, mistake free football. Alignment & Assignment are critical today. Louisville feeds off of big plays and clemson has yet to truly break out offensively this year. If either offense gets a big one early, it could set the tone offensively for that ball club for the next 3 quarters.

My Score: Louisville - 44
Clemson - 34
