College Athletes

Collegiate Athletes need to be in top physical shape as well as top mental conditioning due to the fact that college sports are much more demanding then high school sports.

High School Athletes

High School Athletes need athletic development every bit as much as they do sport skill development.

Middle School Athletes

Middle School athletes need special instruction due to the level of development not only of the body but also the mind.


In this day and age the need for faster, stronger, more explosive athletes is one of the top priorities for all athletes as well as coaches at all levels of sports.

Most sports played today are really about short to midrange acceleration and physical domination, therefore explosive speed as well as explosive strength are a must.

We can help set up a solid speed and strength program that will not only help in your sport performance but it will greatly reduce the risk of injury. Here at Ultimate Advantage we specialize in helping you become a faster, stronger more explosive athlete.
