Training Observation

We are opening up one of our elite training sessions Friday night for Summit attendees to observe how I coach my athletes on a typical training day. Watch how I interact with my athletes and what weight progressions they use. Feel free to ask questions about why I have them do certain things.

Program Resources

We've built out in-depth resources to make programming as straightforward as possible for you. We have tons of exercises and rep schemes for each periodization phase and sport type. We also include templates to write consistent programs that work toward your athlete's goals.

Weekly Planner

We are releasing a weekly training planner perfect for coaches to organize their schedules, health, and mindset. Planning is an essential aspect of coaching, so find it necessary to include a free planner with your purchase so you can continue to improve as a coach.

Session 1: The Garage Strength System

Over the last 14 years of training athletes and learning from the best minds in performance training around the world, we have finally put the Garage Strength training system into a tangible form that you can learn and incorporate into your programming.

 We have built a flexible, easy-to-implement, and powerful periodization system called Parabolic Periodization. We will spend the morning diving into the 5 phases of Parabolic Periodization, the ideal training splits for athletes, the key exercise types and their functions, and which rep schemes to use to generate the biggest adaptations.

In addition to laying out all of this information, we will discuss how to practically use the system for different types of athletes and various sport types, based on the strength characteristics required for each.

Session 2: Skill Strength

We define skill strength as exercises and rep schemes performed in the weightroom that directly correlate to skills needed to excel in different sports.  

We will discuss how to identify aspects of sports that can be most impactful when targeted with strength training. We have determined multiple criteria for categorizing sports and even positions within sports to most adequately develop those athletes in the weightroom. 

By implementing skill strength into your training plans, you will learn new exercises to perform and steer the most common exercises, like squats and benches, to target specific sport qualities.

Session 3: Case Study Program Writing

After learning our entire strength training system, we will tackle real-world case studies. We will write programs based on certain athletes or teams you are currently training. 

For example, let's say we have a running back whose football season is a month away. How many training days should they be doing? What exercises should be the priority? How should the rep schemes determine the volume and intensity of the workouts? When should they be pushing heavy weights and when should speed be prioritized?

We will answer questions like these and more! We just need you to be here to ask them...

This summit was great. The opportunity to discuss common challenges with other coaches while also picking Dane's brain was fantastic. I took more notes in 6 hours than I have in prior weekend long seminars.

Practical and applicable

The amount of practical and applicable information inside Danes coaches summit is endless. There was passionate dialogue to the last minute and we developed true resources to use in our programming. Really great stuff!

Sam A.


The coaches summit was outstanding and was driven by Dane's passion for all things sport. I left with practical tools for my athletes and a deeper understanding of how to organize training for all sports. I would recommend attending regardless of what your experience level is.

Open like a book

Open like a book, any questions needed or brought up would be answered to the best of their ability. Very open, no need to think you have to ask specific things or stay on board, literally any question you might have just go for it and Dane will give you an answer and help you clarify any confusion. Down to earth and easy to talk to anyone at the gym.
