More About Coach Gabriel

I have always loved researching and applying optimal performance training and injury prevention methods and helping athletes around me improve. I now work with the MIT Women’s Ultimate team as their speed, strength and performance coach, as I incorporate the research that I have learned into athletic performance as well as injury prevention. I created a multi-phase strength and conditioning plan to increase athleticism in a safe consistent manner for the 30+ athletes. Measured 40-yard dash, vertical jump, and agility metrics to provide data driven results for each individual athlete over the course of the season. Designed a plyometric and speed program to first teach the athletes to absorb force and move in efficient manners to prevent injury. Tailored multiple workout options to the level of the athlete, so that each athlete can excel and prevent injury over the long-term. I also train High School- College athletes at the Cambridge YMCA, working as a speed and agility coach to work on increasing vertical jump and 40 yard dash time. I typically work with athletes around form High School to College, but I have worked with athletes at all ages. I have recently moved back to Jacksonville Florida and I am looking to train athletes and take their game to the next level. FREE first session consultation, nothing to lose!

In high school I played basketball, lacrosse and I ran track. In College I played 3 seasons of College Lacrosse at the University of Florida, and played an additional 2 seasons of college Ultimate. I have always been the most athletic person on every team. Even now at the age of 28, I run a 4.5 40 yard dash, and have over a 40 inch vertical leap.

I specialize in vertical jump, speed and agility training. Of course what a typical session would look like depends on where the athlete is in their athletic experience. The first training session will always include a diagnostic of the athletes movement, strength and mobility, and jumping and sprinting techniques. I believe form is a very important place to start for athletes and making sure an athlete moves in the correct way will ensure optimal results in the long run and prevent injury. After I have addressed potential movement deficiencies, I will move on testing the athletes vertical, sprint times, agility times. I believe that we need a benchmark to ensure that we are improving in these areas over the course of the sessions. Ideally, I can retest after a month of training and will see improvements in each of these areas. If we cant test and show improvements over time, we are failing our athletes. Lastly I would record video of the athletes movements (vertical jump, acceleration, top end speed), and provide additional analysis at home, emailing to the athlete optimal technique adjustments (OPTIONAL). After the first session, I would move into more targeted training depending on where the athlete was. Below is an example 8 weeks of training broken up into 3 phases for a new, relatively untrained athlete:

Phase 1 (Week 1-2): Phase 1 of the training will be working on force absorption and jump/sprint technique. This first phase will be to help learn how to jump/land correctly, and work on sprint and agility technique. We will also help the athlete learn how to absorb force and make sure we are preparing the athlete to handle sprinting faster and jumping higher later on in the preceding phases. The strength training will have an eccentric and isometric focus and the plyometrics in this phase will be basic.

Phase 2 (Week 3-5): Phase 2 of the training we will be transitioning to focus on explosive strength, agility and speed. We will continue to build correct jump/sprint technique in the athlete, but move from force absorption to force production. The strength training will progress to explosive concentric movements, and the plyometrics will start to get more advanced and more demanding.

Phase 3 (Week 6-8): Phase 3 of the training will focus on peeking in our sprinting and our jumping ability. At the end of this phase we will be retesting all of the performance indicators and assessing next steps for the athlete. This phase will be all about force production and helping the athlete reach peak performance. We will only be keeping the necessary strength exercises, and the plyometrics that will help the athlete reach peak performance.

Client Reviews

Coach Gabe has truly brought my athleticism to the next level. Working with him over the past couple months, he has increased my vertical jump by a huge margin, and increased both my acceleration and top end speed. I am now the most athletic person on my team, and am able to make huge impacts on the field and court. Coach Gabe is very knowledgeable and was able to help me with my jumping and sprinting technique, as well as offered a variety of exercises to help prevent injury during the season. I cannot recommend him enough!
