Titan Sports Performance has been a huge part of our school’s Athletics since starting work with our sports programs in 2015. “It’s been at least 6 years now,” says Royals Athletic Director Abe Jahadhmy, “I think it’s a great program for our teams to have, they’ve certainly helped with injury prevention and strength.” Titan works with many Sports at our school, Boys and Girls Water Polo, Swim and Dive, Boys Basketball, Football, Boys Soccer, Boys and Girls Lacrosse, Girls Volleyball, and Girls Tennis. “I think more of our programs should take advantage of the training service Titan provides.” 

Nate Rudeen, Titan Co-Owner 

Titan has over 150 total clients and 70 athletes, of those athletes most are San Marcos students. 

“Group training at SM is very general, it doesn’t fit the personalized needs all of Athletes, but is good for overall strength and injury prevention.” Titan does group training here at SM for multiple sports.

The process for getting you started for personal training at Titan is as follows:

a movement evaluation, seeing joint range of motion, your movement mechanics, finding muscle imbalance, listing weaknesses, strengths, and physical mechanics such as vertical jump. 

“Based on what we see in the evaluation, their sport, and their goals we make a program for you.”

The qualifications for working as a strength coach at Titan are more selective, making the level of training at Titan better.

“The level of education to work here is higher, coaches here have a different thought process. Generally they help you with physique whereas Titan is more focused on performance. We don’t hire anyone that doesn’t have a Bachelor’s degree and Certification of Strength Conditioning Specialist.” 

Nate Rudeen shared his thoughts on the importance of athletes training regularly. “It’s important for Athletes to train regularly as a form of injury prevention by getting stronger and better and doing the motions used in their sport.” For their personal training, Titan is able to build programs around injuries. “It depends on people’s injuries, Sometimes we work around them and help them fix it through their programs.”

Varsity Volleyball 

Eloise McGibben is a Varsity Volleyball player who has been training with Titan for years. “I have been going to Titan for almost 5 years now.” As an All Channel League First Team Middle she certainly doesn’t lack athleticism. “They have helped me achieve every goal strength wise that I’ve had, whether it be increasing my vertical, being faster all around, or focusing on growing a certain muscle group.”  Titan can help you regain strength and mobility in a previously injured area. “I have been through a few injuries including two broken ankles and a torn shoulder during the past few years but Titan has helped me heal much quicker by creating a program that tended to my needs.”

Matt Garcia (Senior)

Varsity Football

Group training here at SM for our sports has been led by Titan coaches for a long time. They’ve helped many of our Sports programs build strength and helped them get in shape and stay healthy. Varsity Fullback Matt Garcia, “It helped us in the beginning of the season to get stronger.” As a fullback Matt’s job was run blocking. “The Titan group training helped me hold my blocks and overpower the other players.” 

Owen Estabrook (Junior)

Varsity Baseball player

Owen Estabrook has been going to Titan for just over a year. “Titan has helped me go from a 355 pound deadline to a 520 pound deadlift.” He plays catcher so being strong in a squat position has helped him play better. He hasn’t been injured since training at Titan and feels he is less prone to injury.

Aiden Mandel (Senior)

Varsity Basketball and Baseball

Senior Aiden Mandel shared about his athleticism, “It’s gotten way better, I’ve been able to dunk way easier and my overall athleticism has improved.” He hasn’t been injured since going to Titan and all the movements and training he’s done there has helped with injury prevention. “It’s given me a better work ethic and made me want to better myself even more and workout.”

Titan Sports Performance does so much to help our Athletes with their athleticism. It can help our future and young athletes take their game to the next level through team or personal trading. Titan will help you get it done. Titan coaches are invested in our Athletes and the future of San Marcos Athletics.
