“When I first worked with Paul ten years ago, he was doing things that most conditioning coaches are only just now starting to think about. It should not be taken lightly, considering my experience working with many, very good conditioning coaches, when I say I have not met a better conditioning coach than Paul Balsom.”

“I started training at The Athlete Factory a year and a half ago; about the same time I started to become a regular on the Canada squad. Athlete Factory has specific movement patterns that you consistently work on that translate directly to rugby; speed, power, stability. Things any athlete is looking for. I can’t thank The Athlete Factory enough.”

Nick Blevins,
Canada Rugby Team


When every world-class rugby coach is talking about power, speed, and explosion —
When you’re struggling to create the all-round athlete to match your technical skills and dominate opponents–
We’ve been doing it for twenty years.
Coaching speed is not only science but an art form, an art that cannot be learnt over night.

Do you feel…

  • You are getting stronger in the gym, but the power doesn’t seem to translate to contact.
  • You were faster than you are now, and no matter what you do, you can’t improve.
  • Your energy, speed, and strength seem to fade throughout your games.
  • You only have small windows of time when you are at your best because of annoying injuries.
  • You want to learn how to train and act like a pro-rugby player, but have never had the direction or guidance of a world-class conditioning coach.
  • You’re carrying unnecessary weight which is only slowing you down on the pitch.
  • You train hard, but your performance never seems to stand out to coaches and scouts.
  • You’ve been told by parents, coaches, and mentors that you need to “work on your speed” or “quicken that first step”.
  • Concussions are preventing your potential development.
