I’m extremely satisfied with the strength and agility training my son is receiving through Elite FT and their programs. Justin’s team of trainers and specifically Crystal, do an outstanding job of coaching and teaching proper technique with a personally designed program.  The level of attention is second to none.  My son has seen marked improvement in both strength and agility and I highly recommend them for this type of training.

Youth Fitness Training

My daughter started working with Crystal to help build strength and improve her overall fitness for soccer. After almost 12 weeks her overall strength has improved, on and off the field, as well as her confidence in the gym! Crystal built a workout plan around my daughter’s needs and has even given her workouts to do at home. Crystal is very knowledgebale, patient and focused on seeing results. We plan to continue working with her until my daughter reaches all her goals!

Our Mission

“To teach boys and girls of all ages, sports and skill level, proper running mechanics along with strength technique to gain more overall speed and strength, becoming explosive.”

Our Story

In the spring of 2020, the world experienced the Coronavirus pandemic. The world closed its doors for quite some time, but it allowed people to take a break from their busy schedules. Elite FT was given the opportunity to examine our company and find ways to improve the programs we offer to the soccer and fitness community. We discovered that we needed to find a way to offer our speed programs and gym/strength programs to more athletes as well as children looking for a fitness class! 

We began a market research project and found that our customers loved both programs, BUT…

  • Busy schedule was a major issue
  • Athletes want both speed training AND strength training
  • Athletes did not want to come and ‘just run’ or ‘just lift weights’
  • Non-athletes want to participate in fitness as well

Instead, the things they liked were…

  • Our coaches focusing on proper technique
  • The programs being open to athletes of all sports so they meet and train new people
  • The program being open to kids of all fitness levels
  • Proper safety guidelines 

Therefore, in the summer of 2020 we made the decision to create a new company, combining both programs, called Youth Fitness powered by Elite FT so athletes may come to age-specific training and get the best of both worlds: Strength AND Speed in ONE hour!
