Sports Performance Training for Any Client

Look around:  you probably know someone who is competing in an adult sports league, training for a road race or mud run, or getting in shape for their upcoming college or youth sports teams. As more clients chase performance-related goals, they are increasingly looking to their trainers for help. This has opened new opportunities for health and fitness professionals to train their clients with personalized, performance-oriented programming. The ACE Sports Performance Workshop will provide you with the tools and knowledge to help clients of any age or ability reach their athletic goals, safely and effectively.

Led by experienced ACE Master Trainers, this engaging workshop offers specific assessments and programming options for a variety of client types that can be immediately applied to your practice. Utilizing the ACE Integrated Fitness Training® (ACE IFT®) Model, you’ll learn a systematic, practical and scientifically-backed approach to improving speed, agility and power in your clients.

You will learn:

  • How to confidently integrate the ACE IFT® Model to developing sports performance programs
  • To conduct a thorough needs assessment, and use it to design sports performance programming
  • To design skill and conditioning-level appropriate drills, exercises and movement patterns that address all skill-related parameters of fitness (balance, agility, coordination, speed, reactivity and power)
  • To demonstrate and instruct a variety of drills, exercises and movement patterns that are appropriate for all levels of client ability
  • The recovery strategies necessary for optimal athletic performance


Please note that there are no prerequisite educational requirements for the Sports Performance workshop.

Course Schedule


Instructor Sam Berry was absolutely fantastic. I cannot recommend him, his teachning/instruction method, and course format enough! This workshop is perfectly balanced with plenty of hands on, practical exposure to exercises, drills, and recovery techniques, in addition to a reasonably appropriate and valuable amount of classroom/book teaching. I had previously completed the Sports Performance Specialist Program online and this course was everything I needed to put all the pieces of that puzzle together and be able to both see and effectively recreate the application of the drills, programming, and assessments on my clients. While both the Specialist program and the Workshop both offer crossover information, I do feel taking both courses has been fundamental in my understanding and effectiveness as a Sports Performance Specialist, and has given me far more confidence to be able to use this information for positive and effective change with my clients and as a trainer.
