Our Training Philosophy

Your training should reflect and support
the demands and movement patterns
of your sport or activity.

Brian Lebo, CSCS,*D, RSCC,*D
Strength Coach
Founder, Owner, Director

I founded Athletic Performance Training Center in 2008 because I have a passion for working with athletes. Unfortunately, most athletes lack the expertise to develop an effective Strength & Conditioning plan, on their own, and I believe no athlete should have to experience the frustration of training that is less than competent, qualified, and productive.

At Athletic Performance Training Center, I help motivated athletes improve performance and reduce injury risk. I also help motivated, active individuals improve strength and mobility.

I became a National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, with Distinction (CSCS,*D) and Registered Strength and Conditioning Coach, with Distinction (RSCC,*D), because every athlete, team, school, program, and organization deserves the opportunity to work with a competent, qualified Strength Coach.

I share my experience and expertise by offering comprehensive, customized, evidence-based training plans for each of our athletes and active individuals. I also speak with groups - teams, schools, and organizations - to improve awareness and education in the areas of Strength & Conditioning and Injury Risk Reduction.

Ciera Koons, MS, CSCS
Strength Coach

I decided to work with Athletic Performance Training Center to help athletes become the best and the healthiest they can be.

As a student-athlete at Eastern Kentucky University, I was a four-year starter for the indoor volleyball program, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science. I continued my education and athletic career at Austin Peay State University, where I played a fifth year on the beach volleyball team and earned a Master’s Degree in Health and Human Performance with a concentration in Performance Enhancement and Coaching. I aspire to use my education and experience as a student-athlete to help others work toward and achieve their goals.

I became a National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) to help more athletes improve their performance and overall athletic ability.

I am passionate about sharing my knowledge through goal-oriented, personalized programs. I also work with athletes on mindfulness through meditation to help them improve self-compassion and awareness during competition.
