Steve Nardini

Head Athletic Trainer

nardini sports performance training brewster ny

Steve Nardini, head performance coach and owner of Nardini Sports Performance, has been training athletes, from youth to the pros, for over 9 years.

At the age of 23, after finishing his bachelor’s degree, Steve opened his first performance facility located in Carmel, NY. His first facility being just about the size of a one-car garage, with no air conditioning, heat that barely worked, and a makeshift bathroom, Steve began his career working with a handful of his football players from the team he coached and another group of players from the football team in the town his gym was in totaling around 15-20 athletes.

Only having his facility for a year and working with his athletes for a few months, he was able to improve their athletic performance enough that just about half of his athletes were able to continue their athletic careers by playing at the college level.

After his first year in business, Steve was offered a better business opportunity in which he was asked to assist a newly opened athlete performance center in town. Within the first year of helping out, he became the head performance coach for this new facility, where not only was he responsible for all the performance training sessions, but he was also responsible for all the athlete and team registrations as well as making sure all payments and proper forms were received.

Within his 4.5 years as the head performance coach, Steve built a program from the ground up, all on his own. He worked with over ten different teams from all over, ranging from the youth level to the collegiate level to even working with some professional athletes. He trained all different types of teams that, included football, soccer, baseball, basketball, and lacrosse, to name a few.

Steve also put together a very successful athlete performance combine in which he hosted over 50 athletes from 8th to 12th grade, where they all got to get a taste of what it’s like playing at the next level and participated in some performance testing and a workout.

Steve decided that after 4+ years of working for this other facility, he wanted to go back on his own and open up another performance facility. So, after leaving there, he opened up another training facility, where he has been for the last two years and has brought in additional teams and players who have been training with him since.
