Elkin Sports Performance Becomes Official Strength and Conditioning Program of FC Richmond

 

        
ELKIN SPORTS PERFORMANCE BECOMES OFFICIAL STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING PROGRAM OF FC RICHMOND

 

FC Richmond is pleased to announce a new partnership with Elkin Sports Performance (ESP), making ESP the Official Strength and Conditioning program of FC Richmond. “FC Richmond has been working with ESP for several years now and we are excited to officially partner with ESP to enhance and expand the benefit of their programs to our players”, commented Assistant Director of Coaching, Trip Ellis. The enhanced partnership means a continuation of the relationship between ESP and FC Richmond, which has been in effect for the last three years. ESP has supplied preseason conditioning practices to the U15-U19 Magic/Mystx teams over the last three summers, as well as offering discounted services to all Magic/Mystx/Metro players during the off-season. Under the new partnership, ESP will work directly with the U11-U14 Mystx teams during the fall and U11-U14 Magic teams during the spring to enhance the strength and conditioning of the players in these pivotal age groups. Jason Elkin, owner of ESP, is very proud of the expanded partnership with FC Richmond…“ESP has a tremendous respect for the direction that FC Richmond is going with their organization and we feel that by implementing a proven age specific, speed, strength and agility program for all their athletes, then we can help the entire organization reach their goals on the soccer field.” ESP will also continue to offer discounted services to all FC Richmond Players (Magic, Mystx, Metro, PDP, and Recreation) and family members at their Richmond area training facility, located on the campus of SCOR (Sports Center of Richmond). 

About Elkin Sports Performance
The vision of Elkin Sports Performance (ESP) started years ago through the passion Jason Elkin, owner of ESP, found from training as a wrestler to developing into a national finalist for the 2001 High School Strength Coach of the Year, to gaining recognition in developing a multi state private strength training business. ESP is based on principles that not only all athletes follow, but all successful business men and women adhere to as well. These are the principles of accountability, discipline, desire, and dedication. Those principles are the core ESP is built on. Every client will be treated as an individual whether they are striving to receive a full college scholarship or just trying to make the junior varsity team. ESP will also push the adult clientele in new and exciting training programs and protocols. All clients at ESP will be offered a program that is demanding and results oriented. In addition, we are not a health club, we WANT every client to show up and train hard. This fact is why we pride ourselves on holding every client accountable to the program that they sign up for. They cannot achieve the goals that have been set if they are not committed to the program.
Commenting of the partnership with FC Richmond…Jason Elkin said ““FC Richmond exemplifies hard work, dedication and commitment, and ESP is thrilled to partner with an organization that has the same core values.”
