As the NFL Draft is rapidly approaching, a premier athletic training facility from San Diego, California is especially excited. Prolific Athletes is a premier athlete and sports performance training company that specializes in developing speed and strength. The facility is ran by one of the nation's premier speed specialists, Ryan Flaherty, who has a top-notch staff (including JLab ambassador Jenna Puterbaugh) working beside him, is training some of the best athletes being drafted into the NFL.
Update 2/23/15: Listen to Ryan Flanherty's NFL AM interview here.
For months leading up to the NFL Combine, Prolific hosts about fifteen of the top college football players training them at their 15,000 square foot facility in Carlsbad, California. Their facility provides them with a pro-style weight room, position specific coaching from former coaches and players, combine drill preparation, advanced training technologies, performance nutrition, sports psychology, and more. With the level of training on and off the field Prolific is providing to their athletes, no wonder Flaherty and Prolific are making headlines everywhere.
The Washington Post, Yahoo Sports, UT San Diego, Fox Sports, Sporting News and many more have recognized Prolific for their success in training some of the biggest names in the NFL Combine this year. Hosting former competitors, such as Marcus Mariota, Bryce Petty, and Jameis Winston, Prolific has been seeing tremendous growth and improvements in their athletes. With Flaherty's reputation and connections, Heisman Award winner Mariota was fortunate enough to work with Philip Rivers, San Diego Chargers Quarterback, twice a week for the past month. Focusing on finer details of the position, "The time that Philip spent with Marcus on the field and the film room was invaluable for him," Flaherty told UT San Diego.
JLab had the pleasure of stopping by the facility last week. Spending some time with the group of college football players training at Prolific was an experience we thoroughly enjoyed. Seeing the athletes in their element between training sessions, during a weight training and injury prevention training session, we noticed one thing, everyone had a smile on their face.
Seen above is Pete Thomas, quarterback for the University of Louisiana- Monroe. He said: "There has been nothing but positive buzz going around about Prolific Athletes in the media and we couldn't be more happy for them."
And he's had a chance to use some JLab products: "I've used a few different audio and sound companies previously and JLab products are by far the best on the market. Top notch audio quality, comfort, and modern design."
We're honored that JLab can be a part of these college athletes' journey to the NFL and wish them best of luck.
