At SOMA Performance & Fitness we focus on helping athletes improve in 3 main areas that help them seperate themselves athletically:
If improving one or all of those is something you are looking for then you are in the right place
WHY HIRE A PROFESSIONAL PERFORMANCE COACH?
No More Guess Work
We provide high quality programs designed specifically for you! We have been doing this for a long time and through much trial and error we have developed a system that has proven to get hundreds of athletes results when it comes to improving speed, strength/power, and confidence. No more trying to figure it out on your own, no more wondering what advice on the internet is the right advice, NO MORE GUESSWORK!
It's nice to know what to do, but making sure the work is getting done, and getting done the right way is extremely important to your success and progress. We assess each athlete in our program and communicate regularly to make sure every aspect of the program is being executed properly. And everything is done through our training software, so we can see what you do and don't do. Our coaches are trained to spot proper technique and execution of every drill and exercise we prescribe. With that we will analyze your movements and give you instructions and correctives to help you do things properly and effectively!
Sure, I could probably learn how to change the catalytic converter in my car but its going to take me a while to learn how to do it right, the right tools to do the work, some serious trial and error along the way (accompanied by a headache and a couple bad words), and at the end of it I'm still going to be wondering if I did everything right. That's why I would hire a professional with experience who knows how to do it the right way the first time. Performance training is no different, I have no doubts that there are plenty of resources out there on building speed, strength, confidence, etc., but you are still here, reading this, wondering if hiring a professional coach is the right decision for you. Well I'm here to tell you that it is (of course I'm gunna say that), we have helped hundreds of athletes from many different sports get amazing results, but don't just take my word for it, here are some SOMA client testimonials to help ease your mind...

WHO IS THIS GUY ANYWAY?
— My Story
My name is Brandon Kress, I grew up in a small town in north eastern Connecticut and moved out to Colorado with my wife Kaitlyn in 2014. I've been an athlete my entire life and started enjoying fitness and weight training in high school.
I am a graduate of the University of Connecticut with a B.S. in Strength and Conditioning. I hold multiple certifications in the field of fitness and strength and conditioning including Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (CSCS) and Certified Functional Strength Coach (CFSC) among others. I began my coaching/training journey in 2010 and haven't looked back since.
I was not the fastest or strongest athlete when I played, not even close. And I know that held me back athletically and confidence wise during my playing days. It wasn't until I started to learn how to train like an athlete in college to improve my athleticism that I really started to take my game to the next level. Unfortunately this was too little too late as my competitive playing days were over.
It is my goal to help young athletes improve in these areas now, so they can unlock their true potential and athleticism to complete at the absolute highest level, right NOW!
I'd love to help you to!
OK COOL, HOW DOES IT WORK?
I'M SO GLAD YOU ASKED!
After you sign up for our program you will be set up with a profile in our training software. The first order of business will be to complete our athlete assessment/testing session.
Each exercise/drill comes with instructions and a demonstration video. You will be required to record yourself performing each exercise and drill as instructed and submit them for review by your coach.
This is vital for building an optimal program specifically designed for you!
2. We go to work!
And by "we" I mean, us and you!
After we have your assessment/ testing results as well as all of the information we gathered from our onboarding call, we go to work on building you an amazing 12-week training program that works with your schedule and aggressively attacks your goals.
Then it's your turn to work! You will receive daily instructions from your coach via your online training profile. Don't worry, some of those days will be rest days (even though some of you don't think you need rest).
Your responsibility is simple, follow the instructions as closely as possible and try your absolute best on every exercise/drill.
3. We Communicate...
A big part of the success of your program will not only be how well you execute your daily assigned workouts but also how well you communicate with us, and vise versa.
We will be looking over your program regularly and checking in with you about how things are going. We communicate directly through your training profile via the messaging feature. We get notifications when you complete workouts and can see very clearly what is being done, or not done.
Don't worry, we will be keeping you accountable!
4. We Adjust
Stuff happens, we get it.
Fortunately, with our coaching program we are always ready to adjust your program as needed to help keep you on track toward your goals.
Whether its an injury (hopefully not), an illness, a change in your schedule, or even a change in your goals, we can adjust.
5. We Track Progress
You remember that assessment/testing session you did in the beginning? Ok good, we not only use that info to build a great program for you (the best in our opinion, but we are biased) we also use it to track progress.
In your program we will work in a minimum of 2 more assessment/testing opportunities. Usually in the middle and at the end. This is to see how the program is going so we can make adjustments if needed.
6. You get results
Seriously, I'm not just saying that.
We will do our part and as long as you are doing yours, you will get results!
We have helped hundreds of athletes improve, there's no reason you can't also be one of those success stories.
If you're willing to put in the work, it's time to take the next step!
Don't worry, just keep scrolling down and I'll tell you what that next step is...
