More About Coach Oliver

Throughout my coaching and playing journey, I have trained under and been mentored by Joe Gentry, a US Olympic Sprint coach, who has also trained top NFL football players such as Deion Sanders, Champ Bailey, and Shaun Alexander. I have based part of my programs off of his teachings by utilizing an assortment of training variables to improve athletes’ balance, speed, agility, quickness, and strengthening tools for their specific sport. I am also a level 1 USTF certified coach and performance trainer. All of this experience has given me an opportunity to develop what I believe is a stellar position specific program for up-and-coming football and basketball athletes. I accommodate players to help each individual train their body in a manner that will best benefit them in competition.

-Two-time NCAA All-American running back.
-ODAC Conference and State Player of the Year

Client Reviews

I highly recommend Coach Oliver! I didn’t really know what to expect for my son, Jacob’s, first session. Coach came very prepared and very timely...greeted us at the door. Coach Oliver worked with Jacob for the entire hour and even went over our initial session. I was very very pleased with his knowledge and appreciated the fact that he pushed my son past his limitations. He did a full assessment with Jacob and corrected each error even in warmups. Jacob warmed up to Coach right away and definitely wants to continue his workouts with him in the football offseason. When we left our session Jacob told me he learned so much that he can’t wait to get better. That same evening, we booked for 10 sessions. You will get a lot from Coach Oliver’s sessions. Highly recommend!!!

As a former scholarship athlete and mom, I recognize Coach Oliver’s talent and dedication. He has an attention to detail, the ability to break down skills, and communicate the right way to do things. My son is 8 years old and Coach Oliver is patient and kind, while still pushing him in a good way. I’m sure that learning to keep going -even when it gets difficult- will be invaluable as he grows up.

Coach Oliver worked with my 11 year old son. He really enjoyed the session and learned techniques he was able to put into action right away. I liked his approach -- first talk about what you and the athlete want to accomplish, then assessing the current skills, and then going through specific drills and teaching to help get there. Coach Oliver is very positive and constructive, I really liked his positive low key (no negativity, screaming or yelling) way of working with a youngster.

My son really enjoyed working with Coach Oliver, and we will continue to work with him in the future!

Coach Oliver trained my son for his upcoming football season. He was on time, dependable and my son loved working with him. He gave him the training he needed to improve his fundamentals and take his skills to the next level. He truly showed interest in wanting to help my son achieve his goals and was always positive. The results speak for themselves as my son is s starter half-back and defensive end in a large and competitive school district. We are so pleased with Coach Oliver that he is training our daughter in her vertical jump and we plan to use him again next spring for our son. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for personal training for themselves or their children.

Coach Oliver has great insight into football skills and has been a big help in short time.

Great coach! Likeable, friendly, great with kids. He earns respect while also pushing the athlete to their highest potential. Very professional. Highly recommend.

Marcus really enjoyed his first session with Oliver. I left the decision to continue sessions completely up to him and he said he definitely wants to keep going. He liked how Oliver took the time to explain things and why they are that way!

My son, Brendon really enjoyed working out with Coach Oliver. We will definitely be sticking with coach Oliver. I look forward to seeing how much progress my son will make.

Coach Oliver was fantastic at our son's first assessment. He was timely at arrival and worked our son quite hard for the entire hour. He even stayed after for almost 30 minutes talking to us about what he needs to improve on and giving us recruiting suggestions. We look forward to starting weekly sessions with him!

We have really enjoyed watching Oliver work with Benjamin. He is very good with him, making sure he uses good form and incorporating age appropriate drills and "homework." Benjamin has had lots of fun at his sessions and more importantly, is eager for the next session. We couldn't be any more pleased with our first couple sessions and will be continuing practice with Coach Oliver.

Coach Oliver is doing great with Jake. He understands all aspects of football and is helping Jake succeed.

Coach Oliver is FANTASTIC! My son is 8 years old and going into his 3rd season playing football. Coach Oliver was able to work with the basics he had and give my son new skills/tools to use this season. I highly recommend coach Oliver and look forward to working with him again.

Coach Oliver gives a great workout and knows a lot of tips to improve technique and athletic performance. He is constructive and works efficiently with your time. I learned a lot from a single session from him.

I contacted Coach Up seeking help with my son's football technique and speed. We had our evaluation this week, and I was so happy with how he interacted with my child during the session. He was paying close attention to my son’s face as well as his overall technique. Coach Oliver noticed he was flinching during a drill. He put my son at ease, and explained to him he needed to talk to him if they were to have a successful training relationship. Coach Oliver took time out of the evaluation to stretch my son’s hamstring and gave stretches to my son to avoid future injury.
I was aware of some of the area that needed work and Coach Oliver picked those out very quickly. During our time with him, Coach Oliver didn't seem worried about the time and stayed with us until a complete evaluation was obtained even though it took two hours. I especially liked our conversation about the mental preparation needed to become a successful player, he brought up information my son has been aware of and expected to know but never been taught. We are looking forward to working with Coach Oliver in the remaining pre-season and off season.

After one visit with coach Oliver my son learned some science to running and increasing his speed.I was very impressed with his knowledge and how he thoroughly explained what he was teaching.We will be spending more time with coach Oliver over the next 4 months leading into football.Thanks Coach

Coach Oliver works with our 3rd and 6th grader whom play basketball and football. Our 6th grader had never had a offensive position but wanted to play QB. After a summer of twice a week sessions with Coach Oliver he tried out and became starting quarterback on his 6th grade team (oyaa). We have also seen drastic changes in our 3rd grader with coordination, dribbling and agility. We would recommend him to anybody that wants to give there child a lil edge in this highly competitive world.

Coach Oliver has been great working with my 9 year old son. My son loves going to his sessions. He gets a great workout in addition to honing his athletic skills.

Oliver spent time hearing about my 7 yr old son's strengths and opportunities and designed a work out to gauge his abilities and to work on improving his opportunities. He was very supportive and nice and made my son relax and get the most from the workout.

I also appreciated Oliver being thorough in making sure my son finished all drills and corrected improper techniques.

I strongly recommend Coach Oliver to parents wanting to strengthen football fundamentals for their sons.

My son really enjoyed his session with Oliver. The workout was tough but doable and Oliver really encouraged him through it while ensuring good form. The workout that he gave for him to work on at home was a great fit for my son based on the initial session. My son and I both give him a top notch rating and are looking forward to the confidence and strength gained from the work outs!

Coach Oliver seems to be very professional in his approach in working with Jameson, my son.

I am anxious to see how Jameson develops over the next few months with Coach Oliver. He seems to really knows what he is doing.
