More About Coach Ralph

I have been coaching athletes in speed development and biomechanics for 15 years. I was recently the head track and field and cross country coach at California State University Eastbay where I coached numerous individuals to lifetime best performances and two individuals (Lauren McGlory and Marquise Cherry) to conference championships, school records, and NCAA All-American status. I have coached baseball, soccer and football throughout my career. I coached several members of the Ohio State University 2002 national championship team, and work with several aspiring Olympic caliber sprinters from the west indies. I was a division one wide receiver and kick returner at Morgan State University. I was a two time NJCAA national assistant coach of the year. I coached on two football staffs who won high school championships. In 2003 I coached the Washington High Lions (Washington CH, Ohio) to a historic 11-0 regular season record and Division championship. In 2005 I was on a staff that led the Coolidge High Bears (Coolidge, AZ) to the Arizona 3A state championship. I am IAAF level 5 certified, and hold numerous certifications through USA track and field. I coach all age groups from youth to masters. If you are serious about your training and want to get to the next level, I AM THE COACH FOR YOU!

I played football at Division 1 Morgan State University from 1996-1999 and at one time led the nation in kick off return yards before they stopped kicking the ball to me :). I am a member of the national semi-pro football hall of fame after several successful years and a few championships with the Central Ohio Lions.

What a client can expect is quality and highly efficient and organized training. I believe in the holistic approach to training mind, body, soul, so you can expect mental preparation through psychological development. My first session will consist of an assessment period of current skill, ability and fitness levels. I take into account the training age of the individual, have a conversation about goals, and implement my T2C philosophy of trust, commitment and care. After deciding on a realistic goal and strategy the athlete will see a session plan as follows

1. Warm-up routine (Slow to Fast, Active to Dynamic, General to Specific)
2. Discuss session focus prior to beginning to ensure proper understanding and expectations
3. Engage in session (30 minutes minimum)
4. Cool Down and Debrief
5. Homework assignment and what to expect next time
6. Dismiss

Great time, great coach. Very knowledgeable

In the first session Coach Jones did a thorough assessment of our daughter's form, speed, and agility to identify the areas that are to be focused on. The second session Coach Jones immediately began to address them, while providing efficiency and encouragement. Wish we had done this years ago!

Our daughter enjoyed her first session with coach Ralph. He is very prepared and organized. You could actually see her improvement from test to test as coach Ralph gave her instruction. We will be scheduling more sessions with coach Ralph.

Coach Ralph is a great coach. During my son's evaluation coach Ralph was spot on with the assessment and recommended plans for improvement. Coach had a positive disposition and a calm approach, he is definitely knowlegeable with the foundational mechanics of not only running faster but running healthy. As we were leaving he encouraged my son and I that we would all work together.

Coach Ralph was very helpful and professional. Will definitely be using him!

Coach Jones was exactly was my son was looking for. He is extremely knowledgable, very organized, and very thorough. His evaluation of my son was exactly what he needed, realistic and focused on what he can currently succeed at and what he can hope to achieve during the season with hard work and focus. Highly recommend.

Coach Ralph was outstanding. I would recommend any young athlete to sign-up with him who has some ability and would like to get stronger and faster. He is an excellent communicator and works really well with young athletes.

A great 1st experience and detailed evaluation for our 13 year old son. We felt very comfortable around Coach Ralph from the beginning and his discussions and video follow up were 1st class. The facility is outstanding. We are looking forward to future visits and continued improvement with our student athlete.

Coach Jones is wonderful! He listened to exactly what my son was hoping to achieve with his workouts. Where many coaches had only told him what to do and not really listened to what was important to him. Coach Jones is very professional and prepared for his sessions. We are seeing some great gains in only a month. My son absolutely loves working with Coach Jones. I highly recommend this coach for any athlete looking to increase speed and technique in running!

Coach Ralph was great. He showed my son what he needed to improve and gave him the encouragement to work hard

Coach Ralph really impressed me. He is very knowledgable and has a great personality as well. My daughter really enjoys working with him and I believe we are going to see a huge difference in her jumps this year. I really like his coaching philosophy and his level of commitment to the athletes he works with.

Coach Ralph is very encouraging and clearly loves the sport of track and field.
Prior to my son's first session Coach Ralph provided him with a list of drills they would be working on to improve form, posture, rhythm, and balance.
Following the session Coach Ralph took the time to break down his coaching philosophy, and was more than happy to answer all of our questions.
Start to finish Coach Ralph provided a great first session for my son.

Coach Ralph is really great. During the 1st session, he showed me right away that many of my sprinting techniques including my warm ups, were completely ineffective. He explained the physics of running in a way I never understood after 3 years of high school track. I feel I can make great progress working with him going forward.

(no details provided)

Coach Ralph was excellent in his training session with my son. He explained the drills in a clear, easy to understand manner. He's a great motivator and my son saw results immediately. We plan to book additional sessions, I would highly recommend coach Ralph.

I entered the sport without any experience. Coach Jones takes the time to explain everything about the sport and explains why we do the drills we do. I really enjoy training with Coach Jones!

Coach Jones has been a pleasure to work with. He's thorough in teaching technique, extremely knowledgeable and is very professional. My daughter looks forward to her sessions and is happy about learning proper technique. I'm extremely happy with his level of professionalism and great communication!

Great attitude and very patient.
