Our Philosophy


Athletes are taught how to absorb force and decelerate properly which will enable them to move more efficiently and reduce the risk of injury.


Our agility training will allow the athlete to transition to different directions quickly, as well as improve motor skills, reaction time, and brain signal efficiency. Athletes will understand the concepts of “edges” and “angles” and how it can improve their ability to change direction.


A strong core allows for improved performance in sports, reduced risk of injury and better ability to function each day.


The stronger an athlete is the less chance for injury each athlete will have. Each athlete will strengthen their entire body through age appropriate strength training. We do not recommend lifting weights for younger athletes; however do believe these young athletes should work to get stronger through light resistance and body weight exercises.


There is no better place to equip young people with the skills to be successful in all areas of life than through strength training and sports. Our athletes will develop skills that will translate to improved sports performance, a lifetime of wellness, the ability to overcome obstacles and to embrace the process of becoming the best at getting better.


Teams Our comprehensive and easy to follow online training platform provides workouts designed specifically to enhance your team's athletic potential. Every program is designed to: prevent athlete injury and improve each athlete's sports specific performance. Our nationally recognized coaches have designed programs for the 8-time National Champion Oak Hill Academy and multiple other State Championship teams.

Todd Goodwin Coach Kurtz and his workouts through The Athlete Maker have been outstanding for both our Baseball and Football programs. Our athletes saw immediate gains in strength, agility and explosiveness. The movements truly enhance our athletes ability to perform on the field at a high level. The programs are easy to follow and create an atmosphere of positive competitiveness among teammates as well as between teams. Coach Kurtz is my only source for workouts for my athletes, as no one else can have them ready to perform at a higher level.

Jamie Quarles Coach Meagher and Coach Kurtz are as good as anyone in the country in terms of developing innovative strength and conditioning programs. At every stop along my collegiate coaching career I have implemented programs from these guys. The programs have enabled the players in our program to get faster, stronger, and able to perform at their maximum potential. Coach Kurtz and Coach Meagher are great at what they do and I will continue to be a customer the rest of my coaching career!

Douglas Luciano Since I have been working with Coach Kurtz and TheAthleteMaker.com I have seen a big improvement in my athletes performances. He has provided workouts for my track team. He has designed programs for both my jumping athletes as well as my throwing athletes. I have been using his programs for the past six year and because of these workouts my athletes have had success competing not only at the sectional level but also at our county championships.

Jay Young I have been using Coach Kurtz's The Athlete Maker for five years with my football team. In that time I have seen my players get bigger, faster, stronger and more explosive on the field and in the weight room. Since implementing Coach Kurtz's programs we have won 4 straight sectional titles and 3 straight regional titles. I highly recommend this program to any Coach looking to take their program to the next level!
