Kendrique Coats, Owner
Growing up in Central Illinois, I have always had a vision of chasing my dreams. After graduating from Ashford University with a degree in Health and Wellness, I traveled the world to not only gain experience but to get a broader perspective on other cultures and fitness. It was through traveling that I found my true calling: being a difference maker in peoples' lives while also bringing a different approach to the sports performance industry. During my high school and college sports career, I was plagued with injuries. It wasn't until after I started taking a different approach than the popular sports performance speed and agility training protocols that I began seeing a problem I could solve. As a former athlete, most of the training programs I was given were commonly the same, but rarely fit me or what my body has naturally been designed to do. This lead me deeper into my passion for sports performance and the psychology of athletes. Through the journey of injuries and traveling, I have been inspired to found Coats Performance. This has allowed me to provide many athletes with a more individualized speed and agility training approach that is more customized for their body and sport(s).
