Speed, Strength & Agility

Georgia Personal Training center offer training for soccer players. We specifically focus on helping soccer players improve their speed, strength and agility. Experience has taught us that improving these attributes, can and will help a soccer player to be more competitive. We train both men and women and have worked with a number of players from Roswell High and other local area high schools. Our program is designed to help players of all ages.

The sport of soccer has become one of the most popular sports in youth athletics programs all over the country. Roswell is no different. The city of Roswell has produced some of the best collegiate soccer players in the country. Much of the credit for the rapid growth in popularity should be given to the youth programs and the organizations who support them. In Roswell, youth soccer is incredibly popular. The Roswell Recreation department has done a wonderful job of building new soccer fields and providing a vibrant, well organized youth program for kids from all parts of the city. Our lead trainer, Matt Lein, actually participated in the Roswell youth soccer program when he was younger.

We help our athletes increase their speed, improve agility and gain the strength needed to compete at the higher levels of the sport. Athletes in all sports are getting bigger, stronger and faster. Competition for spots on local high school teams and for college scholarship opportunities is increasing with each passing day. Players who want to succeed should take notice of what the best soccer players in the country are doing. The best in the world are working hard everyday to enhance the speed, strength and agility.

Our trainers work with both male and female athletes. We train players in all age groups. People ask us all of the time, what age should my child begin to train. Our normal response is, there isn’t necessarily a perfect age to start. Some players mature faster than others. Some players are more mature at earlier ages. We have trained athletes as young as 12 – 13 years old. Those kids were very focused and really into the workouts. Starting at a younger age can really provide huge advantages to a young athlete with aspirations of playing in high school and beyond. The cumulative benefit from our soccer specific workouts can really help a player to elevate their game over time.

Training sessions range from 30 minutes to 60 minutes in duration. It truly really depends on the age and maturity level of the athlete we are working with, in terms of which length session is best. We tend to start with shorter duration sessions, when we are working with a younger athlete. Session duration increases as the athlete becomes more comfortable with the exercises and drills required. We almost always recommend 60 minute sessions for players who are 14 years old or older. When a player reaches 14, they are generally only a year away from having to compete for a spot on their high school team. A year of training at Georgia Personnel Training center could make the difference for a player who is right on the border between potentially making the team or not.

As we mentioned before, the owner and lead trainer at Georgia Personal Training center, Matt Lein, participated in the Roswell youth soccer program while growing up. Matt was an exceptional athlete, but, very small during his younger years. He worked with area strength and conditioning trainers as a young athlete. If you ask him, he will tell you that he attributes much of the success he ultimately enjoyed in high school and college was due to the work he put in at the gym with his trainers. Matt worked with the best trainers in the city while growing up. He also had the opportunity to work with collegiate level trainers at Wofford College and at the University of South Carolina. He has taken the best of what he learned and created a program designed to deliver results for players of all ages and ability levels.
