THE ATHLETE'S TRAINING DILEMNA:
Athletes, or parents of athletes, looking to improve athletic performance are forced with the following options:
1. You are left lost and confused trying to put together a training program on your own.
2. You are given a training program from a coach that not only produces little results but is also increasing your risk for injury using old and outdated "weight lifting" methods.
Join Team Elite today and team up with reliable, credible, and trusted coaches who have your back.
Complete mapped out training plan to improve athletic performance and reduce the risk for injury - no more guesswork
Coaches who coach athletic movement and not weight room movement
Improvements in nutrition and mindset to aid in the complete development of the athlete
Improved confidence as the athlete sees improvements and add structure to their life
THE ELITE MISSION...
Bobby Fioritto, MS
Founder of Elite Sports Performance
Being a young athlete growing up, I felt a lot of frustration and confusion as I tried to navigate the training and nutrition world on my own. I was left spinning my wheels not knowing where to even start.
As I got older and sports became more competitive, I was then given training programs by coaches that not only delivered subpar results but also sacrificed my joints and trained improper and inferior movement patterns putting me at higher risk for injury.
These plans followed traditional weight lifting techniques and methods used in powerlifting, Olympic lifting, bodybuilding, and Crossfit. While those methods might be good for improving "weight room numbers", they surely did not fully translate to improvements on the field.
Now a father of 2 young boys, I fully understand the importance of providing a complete program that is 100% aimed at both improving my athlete's performance and improving their durability. I've designed my program with my 2 young boys in mind.
THE ELITE DIFFERENCE...
GOATA MOVEMENT SYSTEMS
Given my previous experiences, along with a lot of research, education, and training, I set out to develop a complete training program that provides my athletes with a program based around the GOATA Movement System.
This training philosophy is centered around improving the athlete's movement, rather than simply just "lifting weights" which results in a more explosive AND durable athlete.
An athlete's success and performance does not only come from their physical skills. The mindset is also an extremely important component and is often overlooked in other training programs
Nutrition should be an important component for a serious athlete looking to perform at their best.Because of this, we've designed a nutrition system to not only improve overall health, but also to enhance performance and recovery.

Playing History/Highlights: Growing up I had an extreme passion for athletics and competition. I participated in every sport imaginable early in my sporting career. As I entered high school I decided to focus all my efforts on football and continued to play early into my college career.
Coaching Experience: Started Elite in 2012 and have worked with thousands of athletes ranging from youth through professional
What you love most about coaching: The relationships you develop working with your athletes. Watching your athletes develop over the years, both on and off the field, is extremely rewarding.
Biggest Influence In Your Life: My parents have been extremely supportive of me throughout my entire life and have shaped me into the individual that I am today. I hope to have the same impact on my family and athletes that I work with.
When I'm not coaching I like to: Get together with family, hang out with friends, play flag football, and watch Cleveland sports (and Buckeyes).
Favorite "cheat meal": Growing up I always loved tacos. I also enjoy a good Guinness stout.
If you could have lunch with anyone in the world: Jim Tressel. I've always admired the way he ran his football program as he believed in having an impact on his players both on and off the field.

ELITE SUCCESS STORIES...
DR. COREY A. PEACOCK, PHD, CSCS, ACSM-CPT
Assistant Professor Exercise Physiology
"The training style adapted by Elite Sports Performance is far more advanced than anything else I have ever experienced in a professional setting.
Bobby has combined his unique experiences to form a truly advanced training model, meshing together aspects from his own playing experiences, years of real world, "Under the bar" training along with a strong foundation in scientific research and study.
Bobby's “hybrid” system pairs the latest, most-proven training techniques and injury prevention with a truly enthusiastic, no-nonsense environment, creating an absolutely unparalleled training experience. I have been fortunate enough to collaborate with Bobby on many performance-based research projects, and I can say, without hesitation, that he is a master of his field.
Elite is truly ahead of their time and the results are beginning to speak for themselves. I look forward to continuing a professional relationship with Elite for years to come."
