Saraland Strength

Get to know us

Saraland Strength is more than a gym; we are a group of people dedicated to improving the lives of our family, friends, and community. We rely on constantly varied, functional movement performed at high intensities, evidence-based nutrition recommendations, and a competitive, but fun and supportive environment to help our members reach their fitness goals.


Our goal is to ingrain the correct movement patterns in sports/athletics this consists of jumping, Plyometric, barbell movements, shock absorption, linear/lateral movements. Our science based and proven program will make you the strongest and best conditioned you have ever been!! 

-Injury Prevention
-Biomechanics (movement patterns
-Strength and Conditioning
-Programming includes but is not limited to:

-Decreased risk of injury
-Movements will become more fluid
-Increase recovery rate

-Proper movements patterns. We break down proper running form the ankle up to the head, This includes first step, acceleration, top end speed and body placement for deceleration.
-Proper lateral movement preparation. Each athlete needs to be in the best possible position when transitioning from a linear sprint to a quick violent lateral movement or jumping movement to the landing aspect. All actions must become second nature.

Strength and Conditioning
-Core, shoulders, knee and hip stability this is done by creating larger tensile strength in the ligaments and tendons through a true plyometric and jump training program
-Bodyweight/Kettlebell/Olympic/power weightlifting base.

Nutritional Guidance
-Will help athletes with sports nutrition in season and out off season

Character Development

-If the athlete wants to be successful he or she must develop a work ethic that supersedes the competition
-Success is not given it is earned in the off-season, they will learn how to work hard and how to fight through the adversity with their fellow teammates

We created this environment to empower you to choose the life you want to lead. This is not a place where we keep machines for you to use - this is a place where we help you turn your body and mind into a highly functional and efficient machine. We accomplish this by training members in a small group setting rather than leaving you on your own with machines that can't provide positive and constructive feedback. This is what sets CrossFit gyms including CrossFit Saraland apart from other gyms.

Coach and Owner

I also own AMP Performance in Mobile. I have competed at CrossFit Regionals, and have podiumed in both team and elite individual divisions at Beach Brawl, where Games competitors compete each year!


I started AMP with 6 KBs and 5 barbells, training 3 kids in the back of a flooded warehouse and have built that into a 20k sqft building with 100+ bars, varying styles of machines, rigs and more! I’ve trained 10+ state championship teams, pro athletes, Pro Strongmen, Team USA members and much more in 5+ years. My goal for CrossFit Saraland is to grow it into the best CrossFit gym not only in Saraland but in all of Mobile!
