Total Athlete Training is for the athlete who wants to be ready for what’s next – whether that be the next season or the next level of sports performance. At TAT, each athlete can expect an effective training program that includes weight lifting for sports performance, core strength work, mobility work, as well as speed and agility work. Each week, athletes will have two 75 minute strength sessions (includes warm up, strength and mobility) and one 60-75 minute speed and agility session (includes linear and lateral movements, plyometric work, and, of course, some fun and games).
IMPORTANT NOTE: This year, TAT will take place over a 13 week period. Ten weeks will be in-person, while 3 weeks will be online. From January 1st – January 16th, Coach Colleen will be hiking the Andes Mountains in Patagonia! This has been a dream of Colleen’s for a long time, and it is finally coming to life! During this time, athletes will have their workouts delivered through the mobile app, Team Buildr. Athletes will take the lifting techniques they learned in December and will put them into action in their own workouts. I encourage TAT participants to workout together if possible at a local gym or their school workout center. In-person sessions will be back the week of January 22nd.
TAT gives each athlete the opportunity to receive excellent attention and instruction. Instead of a weight room filled with a large number of athletes and one coach, TAT athletes train with no more than 3 other athletes in the weight room. This allows each athlete to learn effective lifting technique and form, leading to greater gains with less risk of injury. Total Athlete Training offers the flexibility in programming to meet each athlete where he or she is at. In other words, whether an athlete is an experienced lifter or has never seen the inside of a weight room, TAT can help you get ready for what’s next!
Total Athlete Training is a great mix of serious training with some seriously fun training sessions. Coach Colleen promotes encouragement and a commitment to excellent in all her athletes. In addition to this, she believes in the power of a positive mindset and knowing how to have fun, even when the work is hard. Weightlifting sessions will take place twice a week with groups of 4 athletes.
Speaking of Colleen, here’s some great information to help you feel confident that she is an excellent coach! Colleen is a Certified Weightlifting Performance Coach (NSPA), Certified Personal Trainer (NASM), Certified Speed and Agility Coach (NSPA), and a Certified Running Coach (UESCA). She is an athlete herself. She has run countless road and trail races including over a dozen marathons, has finished a full Ironman, multiple triathlons, ultra distance trail races, and even competed in bodybuilding (but that was so long ago, we weren’t sure if we should mention that one, but we did anyway). She loves to bike, kayak, hike, golf, and, really, play just about any sport that comes along. Colleen is the strength coach for her local high school’s track & field and cross country teams. She began Total Athlete Training in 2016 and it has evolved to what athletes can experience this summer – a great combination of strength, conditioning, mobility, speed, and a whole lot of fun!
Don’t just take our word for it! Take a look at what other athletes have experienced working with Colleen and Total Athlete Training:
TAT- Totally awesome training!! Grady gained strength, knowledge to lift without risk of injury(key) and achieved new goals that he otherwise wouldn’t have had the opportunity to! He came home always proud of the work that was done and always said “I may feel that tomorrow”! That always made him feel so accomplished. Not only did he love going to TAT, but he would’ve gone 4 nights a week if he’d had the option. Grady was so happy with the attention and enthusiasm he was met with each week- you just have a way with making each client feel special and appreciated! Thank you so much for always going next level with your dedication!! – TAT Parent Cortney D.
Colleen’s classes nourish the body in every way; body, mind and soul. My daughter attended winter classes with Colleen and loved every minute. She felt encouraged, motivated, and strong inside and out. Not only did my daughter get physical training to become a stronger athlete she received weekly messages on positive mental focus to help her overcome all obstacles. She will be back for more “Mind, Body, and Soul” training to help her remain a healthy athlete in all ways. – TAT Parent Tiffany
