I have competed in high school and club soccer but found more passion in coaching and taking atheltes to the next level of their career such as college or professional sports.

My sessions and training is evidence-based driven, holistic and tailored to meet your training needs for your sport. Before training, I ideally gather subjective information to understand how you feel before the session. This can be simple as "how sore are you?".. "did you sleep well?".. or "how hard was your last training session".

Sample Strength training plan:
- Warm Up / Movement Prep
- Total Body Power Block
- Primary/Secondary Block Lift
- Stability/Core/Rotational Block
- Auxiliary Block Lift
- Energy System Development.

Sample Outdoor Conditioning Session:
- Warm Up / Movement Prep
- Plyometric and Injury Mitigation
- Conditioning Session (Varies on the needs of the day, It can be a speed/agility session or energy system development session "ESD")
- Example for Soccer Specific ESD: Anaerobic Development
Athlete: Central Midfielder
Layout: 2 sets of 4 reps of 15-20 sec 10 yard increment shuttle runs (up to 30 yards) followed by in place soccer juggling for active rest. This layout is specific to your sport and position.

Client Reviews

I've worked with Walter closely as my strength and conditioning coach in USA Para Cycling when he was with United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee. He played an integral part of my time to prepare me for 2019 Worlds Champion and for the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games.
Walter is a top class strength and conditioning coach that helped me prepare for my professional soccer career. He was my college strength and conditioning coach at CSUN. I owe it to Walter and his efforts to get me into top physical shape to play for my current club Hartford Athletic.
