Strength and Conditioning Program

As we announced a few days ago, we are starting a strength and conditioning program for our athletes. We are excited to have Dr. Taryn Lewis run this for us. We need to purchase a good amount of equipment to run this venture. We are looking for someone that would be willing to underwrite the program. We are a 501c3 nonprofit. Any donation would be distributed to the entire club and not to any individual. Please contact Bill Zehler if you are interested in improving our program.

Dr. Taryn Lewis

Doctor Taryn Lewis is joining our program this season. In addition to coaching one of our teams, she will also run our conditioning program. She will work with our coaches to ensure that our athletes are in shape to withstand the rigors of our sport. This is something you don’t always get with your club experience. We are excited to be able to offer this training!

Coach T (Doc/ Dr. Lewis) finished coaching her first season at Colerain high school as an assistant freshman and assistant varsity coach. While coaching at Colerain this season she was also responsible for designing the conditioning program for the entire program. She has 5 years’ experience playing club volleyball and played all 4 years of high school, 2 of which were on varsity. Following high school she continued to play recreational volleyball in undergraduate and graduate school.

In addition to her B.S. in Life Science degree she also holds a M.S. in Sports Science and Rehabilitation and a Doctorate of Chiropractic degree. While in graduate school she worked as an intern in the Biofreeze/Human Performance clinic where she treated and worked with many athletes from a variety of sports, age groups and levels of experience. She completed her D.C. preceptorship in South Florida with a renowned sports Chiropractor and sports performance training facility where she had the opportunity to work with professional athletes as well as collegiate and elite youth athletes. She completed her M.S. internship here at home with NKU Strength and Conditioning department where she assisted in testing and training various teams including volleyball, baseball, soccer, and track and field.
