 Athletic Performance Director Coach Pata

With over 20 years of experience as an NCAA college strength coach, I've worked with over 10,000 athletes and I am a four-time nominee as the National Strength and Conditioning Association's College Strength Coach of the Year. Part of my job is learning how to set the athletes up for success both in the weightroom and when they compete. 

     

Taking a combination of my Master's degree in Exercise Science and my experience competing internationally as a Masters's Weightlifting competitor and champion, I bring an unique perspective to the athletes and coaches with whom I've work with. As a four-time nominee as the College Strength and Conditioning Coach of the year from the National Strength Coaches Association, it has been important to me to keep up with the latest trends and research to provide my professional advice. Starting my own company, has let me support others in achieving their dreams and goals.
