I had the pleasure of signing my son Lleyton (White Bear Lake Hockey) up at Elite 1 Training in Apple Valley to work with Tim and his staff. Lleyton had a blast. Tim has a great personality with all the athletes and does a great job of making it a great place to train. Lleyton always came home with a smile and something good to say about each workout. We will continue to train at Elite 1 to get the body ready for the next level. If your looking for a great training facility Elite 1 is it.

I signed Taylor McGahn up for training with Elite in November of 2013.  Taylor wanted to work on her strength for soccer.  Her Dakota Rev club soccer coach recommended Elite.  We checked it out online and then scheduled a free session for Taylor.  The staff were great and Taylor liked the training she would be getting.  We signed her up twice a week for the winter.  By her spring/summer soccer season we had seen great development not only with her strength, but with her speed and agility.  We signed Taylor up for the summer program, also twice per week, where she continued to develop.  She just completed tryouts for Dakota Rev and went from the C1 team to the Premier team at U15.  The trainers worked hard with Taylor and pushed her as that is what she wanted.  There were many times where the training was hard but Taylor had her ultimate goal in mind. Taylor wants to continue with Elite over the winter again to maintain the strength she’s worked hard to attain and also to continue with her development to help her with high school soccer at Eastview as well as Dakota Rev club soccer.  I would recommend Elite training to anyone wanting to further develop in their sport, whatever their needs are.

I have been an athlete at Elite for 3 years now, I have also played soccer for 13 years. Since I joined Elite I have recieved many complements on how much I have improved and developed not just with my strength & speed but as a player. I was pushed 2-3 times per week to achive my goals and i’m proud to say with the support of Elite that I able to do so. If you have an athlete that wants to become a dominate player Elite will take you there.

Elite has the perfect balance of work and fun. In the 3 years that I have been working out at Elite I have gained strength, knowledge and friendships. Some of my best memories are when everyone is talking and telling jokes in between sets. Tim and the other Elite trainers have made my time training enjoyable and are the reason I keep coming back every summer.

My name is Shannon McKnight, I’m committed to Augustana University to play Division II soccer, and I’ve been going to Elite One Development for four years. Before Elite, my running form slowed me down, I lacked the strength to hold my own on the field, and compared to other athletes I did not stand out. After training at Elite, I gained the speed, quickness, and strength to excel on the field and it helped me to stand out throughout the recruiting process. Achieving my strength and speed goals at training boosted my confidence and as a result inspired improvement at soccer as well. I know for a fact that without Elite, I would not be the athlete that I am today.
