Pro Hoops Strength Online Basketball Strength And Conditioning App And Website
I am connected on LinkedIn to Bill Foran, the Miami Heat Strength and Conditioning Coach and he contacted me about our Sports Techie community blog help with supporting the Pro Hoop Strength app under development via a Kickstarter campaign with just two days to go. Nick Burke, Executive Director at ProHoopStrength.com, spoke to me while in New York about his San Antonio based company in Texas where the pros train the pros. This online hub is a gateway to direct engagement with NBA team strength and conditioning coaches who have the virtual ability to help basketball players increase power, speed and quickness using the website’s sports technology application – PROOF, the first basketball training app that combines professional NBA coaching with analytics to help coaches and players improve.
Any age or gender hoops player, coach and trainer knows that specific skill sets are necessary for dominate performance. To excel on the court, one must possess game winning speed, better than your opponent strength, four quarter endurance, cat-like agility, proper mechanics, fluid lateral and vertical movement, yoga type flexibility, proper nutrition, everyday mental toughness, and hard to measure toughness. By aligning with ProHoopsStrength.com you will be immersed in the advance analytics crossroads of sound theory and practical application.
Proof was created to measure and train with science-based programs. By allowing a user to track progress, it is easy to see incremental improvement by weight gain or loss, fast-twitch muscle and raw power increases. They say this era of basketball athlete is bigger, faster and stronger than ever before so PROOF is your smartphone or tablet companion that will provide metrics that enable you to make adjustments if goals are not met. No other sports tech tool on the market has this kind of expert resource backed components available via a free download.
You have two days left to contribute to this iOS project and help get the app to market. Doing your part will get it funded on Kickstarter and make this software package available to millions of fellow global ballers. Safe and effective is a ProHoopsStrength mantra, while their goal is to manufacture an easy to use product that has no serious cost objectives.
The data and analytics PROOF provides is free for the basic information, the Premium membership will have a small cost associated with activating this service.

The Online Home of Basketball Strength & Conditioning
Brungardt began this novel sport business with the idea of starting an online community of the most experienced and respected talent in the Industry who can directly help clients become the best players they can possibly be. Any level of hooper will find the right combination of online and offline tools needed to become improved ball players.
Mike Brungardt, Founder of Pro Hoop Strength, former San Antonio Spurs Head Strength and Conditioning Coach (1994-2011) and 4-time NBA Champion (1999, 2003, 2005, 2007), said, “Pro Hoop Strength is the ultimate answer for all people seeking knowledge about basketball strength and conditioning. Only a click away is a board of experts with decades of experience training the very best athletes in the world. These coaches show you how to effectively and safely reach your potential by becoming the strongest, fastest, most agile, and well conditioned version of YOU that you can become. Hit your own personal zenith and train with the pros who train the pros.”
What began with Mike has blossomed into 30 current and former strength and conditioning coaches averaging 10 years of Pro training and an impressive 14 NBA Championships between them. You can interface with the coach of your choosing who then guides you through web based workouts and website content that features articles, interviews and fitness tips, available in an interactive web environment.
Train With The Pros Who Train The Pros
Since you were a kid trying to jump up and touch the bottom of the hoop net, improving vertical jumping is one of every player’s top priorities. Foran shares his Jump Higher Program used by the likes of NBA superstars LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. Dr. Jeremey Bettle, of the Brooklyn Nets shows you how to maximize the kitchen for food and drink that will optimize your workouts and recovery. A Sports Techie favorite is heart rate zone training, and Joe Rogowski of the Houston Rockets has cardiac information and tech-centric ways to monitor and improve your cardio. When it comes to results, Steve Hess of the Denver Nuggets is the PHS chief results expert whose job it is to motivate end users no matter what the excuse or injury. Coach Brungardt has the proven background to assist you perform technical lifts designed to improve your body synergy and produce maximum explosion, while training like a 4-time NBA champion.
Sports Techie, Burke explained that PHS conducted research and collected data feedback on 60,000 American people in the space. Over 75 percent want more resources for skill and workout development. Overworked and under supported high school, middle school or AAU youth coach are prime customers. Even small colleges need help with this niche. Women are a major target because the big data unveiled they are especially unhappy with existing strength & conditioning tools or skill development resources, traditionally provided by schools that are cutting back funding daily.
With enough funding the future hope is to launch the Apple iOS apps in March or April 2015. Spanish and Punjab in India are the next languages under development. A meeting with the league office was schedule for last week.
The breaking news today of the new NBA digital media partnership with Disney and Time Warner adding 9 years at $2.5 billion per year for the ESPN and Turner Sports broadcasting rights, gives the NBA disposable income needed to explore other digital tools for their young and multi-cultural viewers.
I hope PHS gets an opportunity in 2014 by the NBA to prove their merit with PROOF for the 400 million amateur basketball players around the world and here in the United States.
The Sports Techie community blog has consistently been at forefront of sports technology, here is another way to stay on top of the latest and greatest training equipment by supporting the Proof app development today.
See y’all later in Seattle and here in Atlanta.
