New Fitness Center opened Sept. 2020!


The mission of Trailblazer Strength and Conditioning is to facilitate the development through thoughtfully designed sport-specific programming for student-athletes to enhance quality of movement, enhance performance, and minimize injuries.  Strength & Conditioning staff utilizes the best practices and functional training and work in collaboration with the Sports Medicine staff.  Student-athletes will work alongside each other in a professional, positive, and safe environment. MCLA Trailblazers aim to maintain and exceed professional standards.

The strength & conditioning staff’s goal is to provide all student-athletes a safe, purposefully designed training program that is grounded on science-based physiological principles in order to achieve two core goals: reducing susceptibility to injury and improving sport performance through the enhancement of movement and athletic qualities. Create a mentally and physically challenging environment that teaches and reinforces a winner’s mindset; that achieving excellence in all areas of their lives, especially sport, can be attained through a devoted, focused, and consistent effort in sports performance training.

Our strength and conditioning coach has developed programs for our student athletes and monitors their progress throughout the year.  Student-athletes can access the programs via our student-athlete login page below:
