We believe in an individualized approach to training our clients, therefore we keep our trainer to client ratios small and our training groups comprised of those with similar goals.  Our programs run year round offering 2, 3, or 4 days per week training packages. All of our clients undergo a free assessment prior to joining the program so that our trainers can gauge where you are and put together a comprehensive program that is specific to your needs and just right for you.

NFL Combine Training Fueled by Power Train

The NFL Combine is an opportunity for you to prove to team owners, general managers, player personnel and coaches how physically and mentally prepared you are to play in the NFL. The results of the NFL combine can make the difference between being drafted in the first round or the third round, equating to a loss of millions of dollars in contract value. With so much at stake, combine training and preparation is vital to your success.

At PESFC Fueled by Power Train, our 6-8 week NFL Combine Training Program is designed specifically to enhance your performance during the physical and mental tests of the NFL Combine. This intensive performance sports training program replicates the tests and position-specific drills you will face during the Combine, while maximizing your potential to perform at a superior level.

Sports Performance Client

Before coming to Pacific Elite Sports I thought I was doing all the right things. After my very first training session I realized I was incomplete and knew that this was where I needed to be! I want to thank both Chris and Ma'ake Kemoeatu along with the entire Pacific Elite Sports team for providing me with the best training there is! I can't wait to get back on the field this year! My best is yet to come!

Chad Owens, Toronto Argonauts & Former NFL Wide Receiver


Sports Performance Client

My strength and conditioning work with Steve Saunders is as valuable as my playbook. Steve's training turned me around and six all-pro awards later, I now have a $51 million dollar contract.

Unless I have have strength and speed, knowing the playbook does me no good.

James Harrison, 6-Time All-Pro Pittsburgh Steelers

Sports Performance Client

Steve focuses on training my weak areas. It's very different and very effective for elevating my game.

He knows about strength and speed, making you a better football player.

Sean Lee, Dallas Cowboys

Sports Performance Client

I love the overspeed training. I couldn’t get enough of it.

It was unlike anything I'd ever done.

Paul Posluszny, Buffalo Bills

Sports Performance Client

I'm in my 8th year. This would not have been possible without Power Train.

Ray Ventrone, Cleveland Browns

Personal Training Client

Power Train has worked to address both my fitness and nutritional needs. Their individualized attention is unique in the fitness industry and they have taken a real personal interest in me. In just 6 months, I have lost 33lbs and feel terrific!

Karen Meck

Personal Training Client

I have been weight training for 30 years but have never experienced results like I have since joining Power Train. I have been so pleased with the results that my teenage son and daughter have also joined Power Train

Jim Cashman

Personal Training Client

If you want real results and no gimmicks, you NEED to go to Power Train.

Matt Potts

Personal Training Client

Power Train has been an amazing opportunity for me. Not only have I lost weight, I have gained strength, coordination and conditioning. After having children and taking a few years off from playing field hockey, I feel I can effectively play again without being prone to injury. My overall fitness has improved to the point where I feel like I have the strength to ski and live an active lifestyle. It is rewarding to teach my kids to care about their fitness and also to have a team at Power Train who supports my goals. Not only has Power Train helped me lose weight, but gain strength, conditioning and coordination. I am back on the hockey field and excited to feel like I have the strength and endurance to enjoy the game!

Bree Gillespie

Personal Training Client

I started training at Power Train January 28, 2012. Since then I lost 22 pounds, countless inches, increased flexibility and range of motion. I credit the power train trainers as they create workouts that are challenging and work my entire body. They are encouraging, make the workout time fun and are quick to accommodate my crazy morning schedule. I have never stuck to any type of exercise regime for this long in my life. The trainers keep me motivated to continue.

Judy Walker

Personal Training Client/Adult Fitness

As a working professional and father, I have struggled to find time to exercise. It has been my experience at Power Train that 1 hour there is the equivalent of 3-4 hours of rigorous training on my own. The trainers are there to guarantee that I get the most out of my workout while ensuring proper form and safety. However, at Power Train, everyone is there to support you.

Ryan Horst

Personal Training Client

My name is Jen. I am literally half the size I was when I walked into Powertrain for the first time. Working out with the personal trainers at Powertrain has been a wonderful experience for me. They have challenged me to push myself much harder than what I would have ever been able to do on my own. …Not only am I in the best shape of my life, but, more importantly, I am significantly more confident in my physical and athletic appearance and abilities. I value the relationships that I have established with some of the trainers. For each new hurdle that I conquer they are there as my cheering section. I feel like they really have invested themselves in not only my physical transformation but in getting to know me as a person in the past two and a half years. …Regardless of your shape, size, athletic ability, age, etc. Powertrain can work with you to improve your overall health, even if you were like me and had never been athletic a day before in your life.
