Start taking your soccer performance to the next level. As a player it's about building your skills on the ball, passing, shooting AS WELL AS the off-ball game moments.

That could be anything from winning a 50/50 challenge or making a run to get behind the back line.

Let's not forget about longevity. Soccer is played in all seasons of the year and that is many practices and games that the body undergoes.

If you want to stay healthy while improving your in game athleticism, this is where you want to be.

For $75, the S3 program will provide you guidance on how to get to a few of the areas mentioned above.

It's a 12-week program designed for beginner athletes getting introduced into the gym or advanced weight lifters looking to be more specific as it pertains to the game of soccer.

If you're a younger athlete or just don't have experience or access to the weight room, scroll to the bottom of this page and purchase the Bodyweight version of the program.

This training regimen helped many players I train today in getting acclimated to the gym, making strides in their performance while being resilient.
