- Provide the student-athletes with a consistent, safe and productive way of physical training.

- Devise a system following basic physiological principles of training using a direct, simple coaching approach measuring effort levels daily.

- Help guide the student-athlete to reach their potential by setting goals and monitoring progress at all times and where accountability is a constant.

- Increase physical strength of student-athletes

- Increase physical endurance

- Assess and improve static and functional flexibility when indicated

- Minimize weight room injuries

- Increase injury resiliency

- Improve communication between strength staff, sports medicine and sport coaches in defining a plan of attack and specific goals

- Develop objective goal program with student-athletes

- Increase work capacity in all aspects of physical training

- Develop specific conditioning programs for all sports
