As a former professional and collegiate athlete, Speed Trainer, as well as a Certified Functional Strength Coach and a college graduate of the University of Notre Dame, I’ve gained first-hand knowledge of pushing the human body to its limits. Now I’m using the experience gained during my athletic career to pursue my passion for helping athletes maximize their speed, quickness, and agility.

Not only did I grow up with a performance coach as a father, but I had access to some of the best coaches in the world! Let me share my knowledge and experience with you so you can reach your goals even faster (pun intended).

My athletic career includes the Arizona Cardinals (NFL), Montreal Alouettes (CFL), Birmingham Alliance (AAF), and a 3-year starter for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (NCAA), so I’m eager to coach you to similar successes that I’ve had.

I’m also local – I graduated from The King’s Academy School in Sunnyvale, CA where, I was named to the Bay Area All-Decade (2010-2019) High School Football Team, so I share the pride of local schools here in Silicon Valley.


My rising Senior and rising Sophomore Daughters have been working with Amir for almost 4 months now. We couldn’t be any happier with his efforts, their enjoyment working with him, and the actual results. They were able to start working one on one with Amir prior to the COVID-19 shutdown; building a very important relationship and level of trust. His energy and passion has transferred to online trainings and they continue to see results. The best part is how much they enjoy working with Amir that will undoubtedly transfer to even a better relationship and improved performance once they are back in the gym and on the field.

Amir’s professionalism, knowledge, and energy is the perfect fit for what we were looking for. Amir is hitting on every strength, agility, and speed dynamic that my Daughters were in need of. The holes in their athleticism are being filled quickly. And we are excited for what lies ahead in their continued work with Amir.

In today’s world of highly competitive and individualized youth sports, Amir and the Carlisle Group are the perfect partner to fix, prepare, and take their athletes to the next level. Without a doubt Amir will prepare our rising Senior for day 1 at her Div I Soccer Program, and he will be the key in helping our rising Sophomore reach the Div I Soccer Program of her dreams.

Thank you Amir!
