More About Coach Danielle

I love the sport of track and field! I am a USA Track and Field certified L1 Coach and have been a member with USATF for ten years. I began my coaching career at Kalamazoo Central High School as an Assistant Coach for both boys and girls track in sprints, hurdles, middle distance and relays from 2006-2010. Coaching boys and girls can be very different and require different motivation. I have learned that building a relationship with your athlete produces the best results! During this time I was also presented with the opportunity to personal train adults and elderly; focusing on balance, agility, and developing a physical fitness routine. My clients saw immediate results in their execution of their day to day activities.

Shortly after relocating to Central Florida I became affiliated with Speed Plus Sports. I began working with this organization in 2011 providing basic conditioning for athletes four years of age up to collegiate athletes, and continue to work with them today. The athletes that we service at Speed Plus Sports come from all different sports backgrounds including baseball, softball, gymnastics, football, etc. We work with our athletes on weight training, speed, physical education and knowing your body, teamwork and more.

From 2015-2016 I was recruited to create and establish a competitive track and field team at Downey Christian School. As assistant athletic director, Head Coach for JV and Varsity Volleyball and JV and Varsity Track and Field, both boys and girls, we received much recognition and success. Establishing a reputable names allows me as a coach to be connected with the best resources in our community. I had the privilege of coaching one of the fastest middle school girls 800 runners in the city in just one short season of competing.

In 2005 I attended Western Michigan University with a full scholarship as a collegiate athlete. As a hurdler I reached many of my goals. In the 400 meter low hurdles I became a three time conference champion (2007-2009), two time regional runner up (2008-2009), and Division 1 All-American (2008). I became the first outdoor All-American at my university in over 10 years and became the new record holder in the event, which still stands today! My hard work and discipline qualified me for the 2008 USA Olympic Trials. As a result of my performance throughout my career I was invited to join the USA Track and Field 2008 NACAC Team. I competed in the 400 meter hurdles and the 4x400 relay, placing in both events. At WMU in 2008 our 4x400 meter relay that I competed in holds not only the school record but the Mid-American Conference record that is also yet standing!

I competed in the majority of events offered at the collegiate level. These events include but are not limited to, the pentathlon and heptathlon, 800 meter run, and a variety of relays from the 4x100- 4x3200 meter relay. Success on the track was just as important as success off the track. Chosen by college coach in 2008-2009, I joined our Student Board of Athletics and served my team proudly for two years. I also obtained the honor and privilege of serving as team captain during that time! After graduating I received a Nike sponsorship with Elite Athletes International to continue my training and I finished my competitive career in 2012. My time now is dedicated to helping others by sharing my knowledge and experience!

I like to access the goals and abilities of who I will be working with. Aerobic and Anaerobic workouts formulate my workouts. Proper running mechanics, flexibility, and coordination, muscle memory and event training techniques are just a few things that will be addressed during this time. The core portion of the workout will be dedicated on focus areas such as speed, endurance, strength.

The execution of this session plan is standard for 1 on 1 or group sessions. The best part is that the workout will be catered just for you! Event training is offered and available upon request and will be worked into the program. I consider three things to be important when working with a client, discipline, consistency and variety.

Wow!
I went on vacation in Orlando, where I hired coach Danielle to improve my performance. Professional,
passionate about track and field, generous with her time, she listens to my needs. I learned a lot from her moreover coach Danielle advices will be very precious and I feel ready for the next season.
It certainly restored my self-confidence.
I'll keep a good memories from my experience and I recommend coach Danielle without hesitation.
Thank you coach Danielle.
Laurie-Ann from Canada

Coach Danielle knows her stuff! She took the time to ask me some questions and she created a plan for me to accomplish my goals. She's super positive and VERY motivating. Don't even scroll any further. Just book a training session with her!

Coach Danielle is amazing! She has been able to quickly identify several areas for improvement in my son's technique. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience and is great to work with! Thank you!

Danielle is very professional, observant and encouraging. After only one session she was able to identify a few points of concern in our daughter’s shot put technique, gave corrections that already yielded more inches on the field when applied. Looking forward to future sessions.

Coach D is a very personable, passionate, and enthusiastic coach. She is firm enough to apply the necessary discipline needed to train my teenage sons to develop the skills that will enable them to be successful for their future.

Coach Danielle was great! She helped me improve my starts and work on my technique. She helped me out of some bad habits. I saw improvements immediately. Thanks Coach Danielle!

My daughter loves both gymnastics and track but I wasn't sure which one to have her focus on. Coach Danielle suggested my daughter try hurdles and my daughter became the fastest hurdler and even won the Disney Meet in her age group.
My son loves track but he wasn't improving much. We enrolled him in Speed Plus Sports and she immediately saw that he was competing in the wrong events just by looking at him. She moved him from the 400 meter dash to the 800 meter run and each time he competed he improved and even began winning races.
I have worked with Danielle for a little over five years now and her impact on our coaching staff has helped our organization grow.
Danielle is a great coach and very attentive to the needs of my daughter and son. My children have improved in track and they have more confidence at school.
My goal wasn't to lose weight but tone my body and work on focus areas. Not only have I toned but I have learned a lot in the process.
Thank you for your hard work and dedication throughout this season!
