Performance Training Success Stories

“Given my experience as a parent of athletes, it was natural for me to try the adult fitness program.  I was in poor shape after arthroscopic knee surgery and needed both help and support in improving my strength and fitness.  The staff have put together a diverse and fun program of activities and exercises that matched my ability and conditioning level.  It’s been great and impactful. I would recommend it to anyone.  – Rick T., Athlete Parent and Client

“I am a member of the Iowa Blackhawks Professional Indoor Football Team and recently competed in our annual open tryout. I knew that if I wanted to perform at my very best, I needed professional training – especially since I was still recovering from blowing out both of my hamstrings the previous season.  After two solid months of training I felt ready for tryouts. With the help of the staff at Athletes’ Training Center, I achieved personal bests in every testing drill. I ran a 1.51 in the 10-yard dash and a 4.50 40-yard dash. I set personal and tryout bests in the Pro Agility, running a time of 4.16 in the drill. In the vertical jump I tested at 35 inches and bench pressed 225 pounds 6 times.  Again, both were personal bests. This has been the best decision I’ve made for myself. My coaches and teammates all see the progress I’ve made, all thanks to you guys.  Without this coaching, I couldn’t have done it. Period.”  – Brad Triplett, Iowa Blackhawks

“Athletes’ Training Center has worked to specialize workouts to fit my athletic needs. The strength coaches have a one on one personal connection to fix minor details that have had a major impact on my athletic performance.”   –  Jennie A., Collegiate Track & Field Athlete

“After coming back from ankle surgery, Athletes’ Training Center allowed me to get the best physical therapy available while also providing me with top notch performance coaches to get me back in shape and ready for next season. I’ve done workouts at various facilities in the area and Athletes’ Training Center clearly stands above the rest. Their combination of state of the art equipment and knowledgeable staff will help you reach your athletic goals.”  – Zach Degas, Boston Red Sox

“The staff at Athletes’ Training Center has helped our son, Taylor, become more explosive in his goalkeeping position on the soccer field.  They have customized a program to meet his individual goals and needs.  Their programs are flexible in working with his academic and training schedule, as well.  We believe their expertise provides a safe and healthy option to sports conditioning and training.”   – Kim R., Parent

“Over the past 5 years I have trained at numerous places in Omaha, but the Athletes’ Training Center is the only place that I have found that provides speed, agility, and strength training that is backed by the staff’s medical knowledge. The staff has helped me accomplish some of my personal goals such as increasing my vertical jump, speed, and all over agility. I have also lost 45 lbs due to the staff’s advice on nutrition.”  – Taylor Reeves, University of Wisconsin Badgers Soccer Recruit

“Travis Manners and his staff have been invaluable to the development of my teams. Travis started working with my oldest team when they were all just 8th graders. Over the last 3 years Travis has helped in changing my team from a very average soccer team into a nationally competitive team and the dominant team in the state. They have improved dramatically in every physical aspect of the game- speed, quickness, strength, the reduction of injuries. I attribute all of this to Travis Manners and his staff.”  – Kevin Doyle, Assistant Soccer Coach, Virginia Tech University

“My work with Athletes’ Training Center has been an extremely important aspect of my success as an athlete.  I have been training with personnel from ATC for over four years.   ATC improved my agility, speed, and strength tremendously.  In those four years, I have never missed a game due to injury.  If you’re serious about being an athlete, Athlete’s Training Center is the place to go.”  – Kyle T., Athlete

“After I had shoulder surgery due to a Crossfit injury, I attended therapy with a Physical Therapist who seemed satisfied with just returning my motion and strength to a baseline and not necessarily to a level to allow me to continue to be able to compete in my sport.  After I attempted to return to full participation in Crossfit, I continued to have difficulties with weakness, lack of motion, and pain in my shoulder.   I was eventually referred to Travis Manners at Athletes’ Training Center.  My therapy experience with Travis was night and day when compared to my previous therapy.  He took an interest in my sport and my goals.  He was not concerned with only hitting a baseline, but worked hard to help me continue to be active and competitive as a Crossfit athlete once again.”  – Courtney B., Client

“After several months of physical therapy, frustration, and a frozen shoulder I contacted Athletes’ Training Center Sports Performance & Physical Therapy and I am very pleased that I did.  During my course of treatment I never felt pain and I always received individualized care with routine and consistency!  Within a short period of time my therapist made outstanding progress and recovery with my shoulder.”  – Dannielle M, Client

Jeremy J., age 16

Very good place, very nice people, good equipment and people that know what they are doing.  I would highly recommend it to anyone who would need sports rehab.
