Strength & Conditioning Mission

The main focus of the DME Sports Academy strength and conditioning program is injury prevention, followed by building strength and power. A typical in-season workout is targeted towards maintaining the muscle mass gained in the previous off-season. The off-season is when the volume and intensity are increased and when the most progress is made.

Tom Shaw

NFL Strength and Conditioning Coach Tom Shaw has more than 25 years of experience in performance training for pro football, baseball, basketball and soccer players, including some of the biggest names in the NFL (Tom Brady, Reggie Bush, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Chris Johnson, Santonio Holmes, etc.).

Coach Tom Shaw is a living legend in the world of speed and NFL combine training. From Michael Vick to Deion Sanders and countless other stars, Coach Shaw has been behind some of the fastest 40-yard times in the history of the NFL Combine. But it doesn’t stop there. NFL superstar Tom Brady states simply, “Coach Shaw is the best in the business.”

What is his secret? It’s simple. Improve your explosive power and jumping ability and you will run faster. According to Coach Shaw, “If you can increase those two numbers, you will run faster. No matter what kind of form you have, you will run faster.”
