Philosophy

The mission of our strength and conditioning staff combined with our athletic training staff is to improve our athlete’s performance in sport and to prepare our athletes to withstand injury. We combine scientific methods with first-hand athletic experience to improve our athlete’s career as a student and athlete.

Core values of our staff and our athletes…

Persistence: refusing to give up and always pushing forward.

Pride: holding yourself accountable for all actions, on and off the field and understanding that you represent the University of Mary Washington in all facets.

Perseverance: acting with a purpose and a goal in mind.

Excellence: Expecting nothing less than to achieve your goals.

“The good Lord gave you a body that can stand most anything. It’s your mind you have to convince.” – Vincent Lombardi
