More About Coach Alana

I have 8 years experience working with athletes of various ages from 7 years old to collegiate level. Working with athletes during my time as a NASM Certified Personal Trainer 10 years ago inspired me to get more experience working with more athletes. I began volunteering at Monmouth University with their Strength and Conditioning department. Since then, I have obtained a Master's degree in exercise physiology, along with becoming a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Performance Enhancement Specialist certification, and Fitness Nutrition Specialist. I also have coached at University of Northern Colorado, at The Hun School of Princeton, at various private gyms, and various athletic performance centers.

Working with such a large variety of age groups and athletes from various sports has taught me how unique each and every athlete is. I have watched shy and timid athletes become confident on the field, and I have watched untamed confidence become more cool and collected on the field. I also have watched various athletes put in hard work and consistency to transform their game on the field, but also be able to become the best versions of the themselves off the field as well.

I incorporate injury prevention, strength, as well as speed and agility. I believe it is important to build a solid framework that we can grow for long-term athletic development. Therefore, working with me includes skill work for my athletes to work on at home because one or two hours per week is not enough to produce such results. We will further discuss commitment after our first session. I offer in-person, virtual, and hybrid options.

My goal as a coach is to help athletes tap into their inner source of strength and realize how much potential they have. I will help them become aware of that potential, tap into it, reach it, and then strive beyond what they thought they were capable of. For instance, ever single female youth athlete has the ability to do pull-ups - it just takes hard work and consistency.

I played Varsity soccer and lacrosse in high school, both for 4 years. I decided not to play in college. Instead, I ran marathons. I actually become interested in strength, speed, and agility when I became confused as to why I could not do a pul-up, however I could run 26.2 miles. I can now do several pull-ups, I still run but a lot less distance at a much faster pace, and play soccer in various adult leagues.

Your first session with me will assess basic movements patterns. From there, I will gain a better understanding of where your framework is and we will build a plan for you to improve and/or start your journey towards reaching long-term athletic development. This will include improving speed, agility, and strength. Assessments that I include are dash times (such as the 20 yard dash) to assess first step and explosiveness, broad jump to asses strength, a 300 yard conditioning drill, and movement patterns. I will also ask questions to see where the athlete is at with their mindset and to gain a better understanding of individual goals. These assessments vary based on age and sport. Yes, we will work hard, but we will also have fun. I believe making exercise and speed fun is important for long term athletic development, and also the build a healthy lifestyle in the future.

Client Reviews

We've been training with Alana for a month now and she's been amazing. Highly recommend!

Very awesome. All around

The Best. Focused on the needs and goals of the athlete

Alana is friendly & flexible! She is great with my 9 year old. Super happy to have him learn from her!

Coach Alana is great with kids. I like her general approach which is not only focused on soccer technical skills, but also general fitness, agility, etc.

Coach Alana is great! She is working with my son to get him ready for the fall soccer season (for school) and I have no doubt she will help him grow as a player and develop the necessary skills. She takes time to understand what the player is looking to achieve and works with them to achieve those skills! Highly recommend Alana!

Alana is flexible enough to adjust her training plans after quickly assessing my groups talent level on the first session. I appreciate the way she engaged the girls! They all seemed to enjoy her!

Let me start off by saying coach Alana is very dedicated and professional. She is very focused on getting you where you need to be health wise. She asks what our your goals our and you go from there. You can tell she is striving to get the best out of you and will push you to your limits. That is what you want from a coach. I look forward to more sessions with her and working hard.
