First meniscus transplant successfully performed at Nebraska Medicine

“We all know that organ donors can save lives, but tissue donors increase the quality of life for their recipients, as well.

That’s the story of 18-year-old Kris Kodat. He is ready to start college at the University of Nebraska Omaha in a couple of weeks, but what he’s most excited for is his newly obtained ability to walk around campus pain-free.

“It irritated me. Sometimes I couldn’t pay attention in class. When I got the surgery, it just felt a lot better,” Kodat said.

Just under four months ago, Kodat got a meniscal transplant. He was born with less meniscus in his knees than most people, a rare condition. It was made worse after a series of repeat sports injuries that started when he was in the sixth grade.”

Special Feature: Complete Game

A story of great strength, resilience and determination. A special feature on Collin Lefeber fulfilling his childhood dream to play college baseball after overcoming a surprising hurdle… 

We interviewed our Complete Game athlete Collin Lefeber and his father, Steve. They shared their experience training with our coaches and also talked about Collin’s personal baseball journey. 
Collin grew up watching his brothers play baseball and ever since he can remember it was his dream to play ball in college. His father was also a baseball player and his coach for many years. 
Collin was born 8 weeks premature and weighed just 2 lbs. Because of this, he had to overcome a lot of obstacles in his life due to his ability to grow. He never let it hinder his arduous work ethic or stop him from achieving his number one goal.
He continued to play baseball growing up and was the second baseman for his high school team at Omaha Central. While there, he received NCAA Nebraska All-State honors. Today, he is a student-athlete at Central College Dutch in Pella, Iowa.
Collin trained with us for over 18 months. During that time he held our 300-yard shuffle record, was awarded our male summer athlete of the block in 2017. He continued also continued to break his personal records in each of our testing categories every block
We will continue to watch his career unfold. We are so proud of his determination and inspiring character as he was truly a pleasure to train and work with! 


Steve, why did you and Collin choose to train at Athletes’ Training Center?
When Collin was getting recruited he needed to boost his strength, speed, and body size. We needed a program to help him make all the improvements necessary to help him reach his goal to play ball in college. Collin had heard about Athletes’ Training Center through a connection at school, so we decided to give it a try. 
Collin what were your goals training with us, and do you feel you have achieved those goals?
Yes, I have. I wanted to get stronger and faster and through the tests, we have performed here I could tell the program was working for me. I was hitting balls harder and farther. I was also getting to balls quicker and stealing more bases. The hard work has paid off for me.
What would you want to say to anyone who is considering training at Athletes’ Training Center?
Every athlete I’ve met in here has been determined to get stronger, faster and just become an overall better athlete for whatever sport they are in. Every session the coaches motivate you to do your best and know when to push your limits. This is a good place to come and get better because all the athletes are serious about it here. 
The Complete Game program is specific for baseball and softball players looking to advance the level of their game through sports performance training with a focus on injury reduction.

Chris Langdon

Our first story is about Chris Langdon. He has been a valued member of our family for the past 6 years and has attended over 330 Adult Functional Coaching classes! We’d like to congratulate him on his determination and consistent training. We look forward to 300+ more workouts with him!

Chris what are the main benefits you have seen from your time at training with us?

“I’ve said it a thousand times to all the coaches, and I’m sure they get tired of me saying it, I honestly believe I’d be in a world of hurt if I wasn’t moving my body the way I am. After starting a family, getting lazy for many years and making excuses, I had to make a change – Athletes’ Training Center was that change for me!


What has been your main driving force behind your consistency of making so many sessions?

Simply, I feel better. I get crabby when I don’t work out for a few days. You have to keep your body moving, period!

What has been your favorite part of your time at Athletes’ Training Center? 

I enjoy the coaches and other members. And, I especially enjoy our small community of members. I know everyone and I feel like I am part of a family. I’d be remiss to not mention how much I love Gus’s corny jokes. I really do!

What do you hope to accomplish in the future through your sessions at Athletes’ Training Center?

I just want to be able to continue keeping on. My health is good and I attribute a lot of that to my workout regiment. I can’t emphasize enough on how you have to keep your body moving – Athletes’ Training Center is my vehicle for doing just that.

About the Workshop

Strength and conditioning is a must for any player looking to become a better pitcher, but unfortunately there are A LOT of myths out there on what players should be doing. 

When it comes to improving the performance of your player and reducing injuries, there is so much conflicting information. Should they do a weighted ball program? What exercises should they be doing? Isn’t arm care enough?

During the clinic, Travis Manners will be answering the following questions:

1. What makes up a complete off-season program?
2. What does “arm care” mean and what should it look like?
3. Why are there more and more injuries in all levels of baseball?
4. How can we connect this program to what the players are doing at school?

Travis will also walk through some exercises we do with the players to increase arm speed and velocity and open it up to Q&A in the end. Our performance coaches will also be leading a short trial session of our performance sessions after the presentation. If you are an athlete come prepared to move around! 

Our athletic development programs are for absolutely everyone regardless of age, gender, skill level, or athletic goals. All of our full-time coaches hold, at minimum, a Bachelor’s degree and are Certified Strength and Conditioning Coaches (CSCS) which is the same certification held by all college and professional coaches.

At Athletes’ Training Center our athletic development programs offer the most comprehensive performance enhancement training in the Midwest.

Did you know we offer a free trial session for any athlete who is looking to try our programs?

Receive a Free eBook by attending!

Aaron Lester, Father of Sports Performance Athlete

“My son Daniel wanted to build core and leg strength to improve power through the hitting zone and also increase velocity on the mound. We have accomplished these goals by training at Athletes’ Training Center.

Daniel has improved his home run total from 2 years ago from 2 to 22 this past season. He has also increased velocity on fastball by 13 MPH over the past year and half.

He has also improved his first step quickness and saw an increase in stolen bases and range in the field. Not only has Daniel developed physically and seems to be better put together with quickness and coordination than most kids he competes against but Athletes’ Training Center has provided confidence as well through coaching and mentoring. Thank you!”
