First Navy Seal/UPMC Sports Fitness Conditioning Camp for Serious High School Athletes Set for Nov. 16-17


For serious high school athletes who want to improve their skills and performance, the UPMC Sports Performance Program is teaming up with a local retired Navy SEAL to host a sports fitness conditioning camp from 5 to 9 p.m., Friday, Nov. 16, and from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 17 at Alexander’s Athletic Club/UPMC Sports Performance North, 1035 Executive Drive, Gibsonia.

The first of its kind in the region for high school athletes, the camp will uniquely combine the physical conditioning techniques taught by UPMC Sports Performance trainers with the physical and mental training philosophies of the Navy SEALs. Participants will undergo aerobic, strengthening, conditioning and agility tests and drills as well as mental training exercises to enhance performance as an individual performer and as a member of a team or competitive group.

“We’re excited about this program combination because in addition to the injury prevention and performance enhancement elements of UPMC’s sports performance training, the kids will be exposed to the techniques, concepts and philosophies of the Navy SEALs regarding elite physical conditioning, mental toughness and teamwork,” said Ronald DeAngelo, director of the UPMC Sports Performance Program. DeAngelo is certified as an athletic trainer, strength and conditioning coach, health and fitness instructor, and performance enhancement specialist. The Navy SEALs portion of the program will be led by Dan Toth, SEAL/Naval Special Warfare and Operations Training mentor.

Pre-registration and a $150 fee for each high school athlete are required. Registration and more information are available by calling Alexander’s Athletic Club/UPMC Sports Performance North at 724-444-8850.
