Mike Lovely is the owner of Lovely Strength and Conditioning. He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Mike opened his gym after spending 10 years at the collegiate level. For five of those years he was the head strength coach at Corban University. During Mike's five years as head of Corban's strength and conditioning program, eleven of the teams improved from sub 500 level to well over 500 level winning teams.
Mike finds the best way to get the most out of athletes is to begin by building rapport. With only 12 athletes in a clss he has the opportunity to coach technique and build a connection with each person in the process. The coaching environment Mike has developed is fun and engaging, while the work is hard, but rewarding.
It can be said that all elite athletes play two sports. The second refers to the weight room where they continue to develop their strength and conditioning so they are always getting better and stay ready for their number one sport.
The athlete program serves all athletes to continue in their development at what they really love most. Although, sport skill is not developed during these sessions, an athletes ability to move efficiently will be increased and strengthened over time.

Elite athletes work at improving their quality of movement. Starting, stopping, changing directions in small degrees to 180 degrees, are all movements that have a particular quality of efficiency. These movemements can be learned and practiced by any athlete to become faster and adapt to higher levels of competition.
Acceleration, stopping and changing direction are the big three movements that bulid the foundation of speed development. These three qualities will be taught during each session with a variety of drills. As athletes mature in their movements more layers of challenge will be added to their sessions. Plyometrics, fast twitch muscle development, will also be used during the sessions to add a greater "spring to an atheletes step."
Each session has a specific focus. Often times each athlete will be working on their personal specific with the larger picture of the "main focus."
