DAN POTTS - Founder of Advanced Athlete

We lost Coach Dan Potts on January 16, 2014, following an unbelievably courageous sixteen-year battle with cancer.

Dan Potts was an Advanced Athlete Strength & Performance Specialist, and worked with elite competitive athletes for 3 decades. He worked with Olympic, Professional, and Collegiate athletes, including numerous professional baseball and NFL players, including a former #1 NFL draft pick.

His expertise in sport biomechanics allowed him to access the needs of every athlete, no matter what sport he or she participated in. Believing that strength and power must not only be functional, but also transferable to the field of play, he developed movements using a variety of training modalities in order to give every athlete he coached the greatest degree of strength utilization possible.



Coach Pritam Potts has more than 12 years of experience working with athletes and clients of all ages. Her specialty is in functional strength applications, developing core and overall strength specifically for the purpose of enhancing the body's ability to function optimally in athletic movement. Utilizing the training philosophies and modalities created by Dan Potts, she continues to train athletes at all levels.
