Prisco Panza played a major part in my physical and mental preparation during my high school and collegiate athletic career. I was a three sport athlete during high school, football, wrestling and lacrosse, and I went on to play division 3 football in college. I was very fortunate to meet Prisco at a young age and started training with him during my freshman year of high school. The well rounded training program that Prisco designed for me played a pivotal role in my physical preparation during my high school athletic tenure. I was never the most talented athlete but I was able to reach All Conference and All County honors because I always tried to train hard and even more importantly, train smart. It was Prisco, and his training program that gave me the direction and structure from an individual specific standpoint tha gave me the tools and ability to compete at the collegiate level. After High school. I continued to train with Prisco to prepare for my collegiate caree. One of the biggest attributors to my physical preparation was Prisco's incorporation of energy system specific conditioning with his elite athletic training program, the use of sled training. It was the use of sled training that conditioned me properly and I know was a major determining factor for my success as a collegiate athlete. Prisco's knowledge of sport specific program design ios very extensive and he does an amazing job of tailoring programs for the individual. Through all my collegiate career I did not have any training that was as intense or effective as Prisco's.
Today I own a private strength and conditioning facility in Chicago, IL and speaking form a professional standpoint I can honestly say that it was the guidance and direction that Prisco provided that gave me the ability to become a successful strength and conditioning coach.
