"We’ll CREATE your goal, CULTIVATE your drive, and CONQUER your passion."


Our Story

Building more than athletic ability.

IAP is designed to improve physical performance and ability through strength training, explosiveness and power development, plyometrics, speed and agility training, and other sport-specific needs. Led by professional athletes and trainers, IAP provides intensive, individualized plans focused on accomplishing established health, ability and lifestyle goals.


Through our training, athletes will be taught positive character and core principles that lead to confidence building characteristics. We believe by instilling these principals from the beginning, we will develop a sense of awareness in the athlete’s strengths and weaknesses in order to reach their full athletic potential. While doing this we will also exemplify the meaning and true essence of what it’s like to get things done the right way as a Christian athlete, keeping priorities intact.

The IAP staff has played, trained and coached at the highest levels. Now they are bringing their knowledge, expertise and energy to you!

Aspire To Inspire

Creating a Culture of Quality

Here at IAP, we are a group of people with different backgrounds, different struggles, different upbringings, different races, that are becoming a family that loves each other. We work together for one goal, which is to be better. That’s the reason why IAP does what it does which is build a culture that’s bigger than any one person, any one sex,  any one race. IAP is about building a quality culture within the community.
