Our Training System

Our training system makes us completely different from any other club team you may have visited. We have developed the components of wrestling specific offseason/ preseason strength & conditioning training program that takes the guesswork and trial-and-error out of reaching offseason strength goals.  This is training system is a tested program that is science based and will improve strength, power, flexibility, foot speed and core strength.


The goal of periodization is to have the athlete at their peak performance level at the most important time and to reduce the risk of over training. There are many phases of training in the periodization process but the basic phases are: muscular endurance training, hypertrophy training, strength training, peak strength training, and conversion to power and functional strength training.

Strength & Conditioning Program

Why not train at the high school or another fitness club? 

One size does not fit all! Just as we all require a specific shoe size; we all require a specific program for each individual. Everyone has specific goals and a specific body. For customized results, you need a customized program. Summit Training offers a scientific alternative. We get faster results. We get better results. Using the application of science, by testing each athlete and develop a customized approach to each strength program.

Summit Training Center offers training programs for everyone, regardless of age, experience, and gender or athletic or fitness goals. These programs are designed for youth, middle school, high school, and also adults.

Our philosophy on strength training places value on individual coaching and small groups.  There will never be more than 4 athletes to 1 strength coach during a strength workout.  The offseason is a short time window in make gains in the weight room and our philosophy is maximizing every strength session in a safe environment.


We believe that simplicity is the key to a good nutrition program for high school and that is exactly what we provide. Our nutrition program is simple and easy to follow. Our plan works because each athlete will become educated on proper nutrition.


Supplementation provides nutritional insurance for optimal health, without the addition of calories and readily available nutrients at the proper times and in the proper quantities in response to exercise. Supplements along with professional guidance on which ones would best help each athlete’s goals and are safe for Scholastic/NCAA competitors.

Attitude & Mental Toughness
If athletes can persevere through difficult, highly challenging situations in the weight room and in practice they are better prepared for stressful environments in actual competition. Strength training helps develop a lot of intangible assets in athletics. The Athletic weight room is a great training ground to develop mental focus, working through pain and fatigue, and gaining self-confidence.

The success of an individual athlete will have much to do with his/her commitment to excellence and how that athlete deals with time between training sessions. Recovery is one of the most important factors in training, how an athlete deals with habits like sleep, diet, academics and social life play a huge role in athletic development and success
