Welcome to a whole new experience in training!
E.L.I.T.E. Training Performance trains the athlete in their realm. Athletes are constantly changing and moving in their sport and E.L.I.T.E Training Performance is here to help all athletes achieve their goals and become successful! Every athlete trains in some manner, but do they all train the same way? Does everyone do the exact same lifts and conditioning? Here at E.L.I.T.E. Training Performance athletes are trained for their specific sport to increase their power and speed as well as correct body impairments to achieve maximum success. It is easy to train hard but to train both hard and SMART are the keys to being at the top of your sport.

Ryan Fallow, BA, CSCS
Ryan is a graduate from Baldwin Wallace University with a Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. Following graduation he became certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. Ryan ran cross country and track and field for most of his life. He finished his career competing all four years at Baldwin Wallace University, in total he ran 25 seasons. Through his experience as an athlete, Ryan has learned that every individual reacts to training differently and believes it is important to build the sessions around the individual to help them maximize their potential. He also believes it is not enough to simply perform a drill, the full potential is lost if the athlete is not taught the purpose of what they are doing and how it will help them excel in competition. Ryan brings an energy that helps engage and push his clients to work to their full potential while continuing to grow as a coach through his experiences with his athletes and expanding his knowledge from studying current research and updated training techniques.
