Why Choose Personal Training?

field playerAmaral Soccer is willing to travel to any location in the U.S. We have a skilled and talented staff. Personal training is just that its personal. Our coaches will work with you one on one. Each player will be coached differently because we don’t believe everyone is the same that’s why we will make personal differences in your training to target what you need. We believe that everyone has talent and can become great. What sets average players out from the rest is work ethic and motivation. With personal training Amaral Soccer can take any player with those qualities and bring them to the next level. That level is different for everyone, it may be making varsity at high school, making the club team, becoming a starter, or becoming a collegiate player. Amaral Soccer understands the steps and process to get you to your goal. Are coaches have played at all levels and coached at all levels. They know what it takes to become great. There is always room to improve and personal training is a way to get there quicker.

 Below in this article is a list of programs that we offer for players and we often mix and match the programs to hit exactly what the player is asking for or what we think the player needs. Training like the pros is our mentality and we offer nothing short of that.
