Maryville College Director of Athletics Kandis Schram has announce that Performance Training Inc., has entered into an agreement with the athletic department to train student-athletes throughout the 2019-20 academic calendar.
Based in Knoxville, PTI has led the fitness industry in personal training, corporate wellness, and sports specific training for over two decades. PTI provides results-driven programs, management, consulting, and health and wellness programs to corporations, communities as well as universities across the United States.
"I am excited to bring this service to our student-athletes," stated Kandis Schram. "Our primary goal in developing a well-rounded student-athlete experience is their personal growth and well-being. Our goals match PTI as we strive to make fitness and an overall healthy lifestyle a mission to enhance the quality of life and productivity of our student-athletes."
Jared Lawrence, Director of Development and Marketing at PTI, took the time to evaluate and train some of the fall student-athletes recently. "We have met with the head coaches and have implemented some plans based on class and practice schedules," stated the 2000 graduate of Tennessee Wesleyan University. "We are here to help create a culture of fitness and be a resource to each coaching staff. We look forward to making an already successful NCAA Division III athletic program even better with our focus on progressive development."
