More About Coach Douglas

I have coached clinic basketball programs from ages 6 and up to high school, college FIBA and D League. I also train/coach individuals on the professional circuit.
It is my goal to elevate players on and off the court

Junior college back to back national champions at Southeastern Community in Iowa. Big Ten Champion at University of Iowa 2006. Been playing pro since 2006. 5 years in the D league 5 NBA teams. Suns Bulls Thunder Lakers and Spurs. Also played all over the world and still doing it. Sixth man of the year at Iowa 2006 all defensive team player almost ever season.

Stretching is an important component which prevents muscle strains and pulls. Endurance training is my specialty. Each person I train is an individual which is my logic for designing a workout/training session specifically catered to his or her goal on the basketball court. Motivation is very important therefore I believe harder work pays off and anything you set your mind to is achievable.

Client Reviews

I've been watching my son train with coach Doug Thomas and I've seen massive improvement. My son was once a player looked over but now has been invited to multiple teams and tryouts after coaches watch him play. Coach Doug has helped my son polish his skills. Since starting with coach Thomas, we have invited two of my son's teammates who are now also regular students after seeing great improvement to their own game. Thank you coach Doug for sharing your time and talent with our son.
I've been working out with Coach Doug for about a year now and I feel that the work we've put in has helped me become a better player. I like how he shows me what I am doing wrong and explains what adjustments I need to make to become better. Other trainers might tell you what drills you need to do, but Coach Doug shows you how to do it in detail and explains how any particular drill can be applied in a game.I know I can trust Coach Doug to work on my skills, but on top of that, he stays encouraging me outside of the gym. He stays in touch with me and asks me how my games went, or how I feel after a work out. He keeps an open dialogue and is always looking to hear what I think I need to work on. Coach Doug is always encouraging me and motivating me to be a better player.
Training with Doug has opened my eyes to not only becoming a better basketball player but being a better person. Every time I train with Doug not only am I improving my basketball IQ but I'm also learning valuable life lessons that can be applied anywhere. Doug Thomas is the best trainer I've ever had the pleasure of training with.
The feeling of playing for you is a new style of playing than when I played last season. This season I learned more team work then last because two guys carried the team. This season change it and you showed me and everyone else that two guys can't carry a team because the whole team has to carry each other . Thank You Coach for your time.
