IN THE GYM

INdividual

Athletes receive 1 on 1 focus with one of GZT's personal trainers. Workouts are specifically designed for each
 athlete depending on their individual wants and needs. These workouts mirror, “game-like” situations that will teach players how to create or take away space by using angles, body contact, and change of speed/direction. Through these workouts we improve athletic ability, footwork, strength/conditioning and overall knowledge of the game.

For more information or to schedule, fill out the contact form here.

Group / team

Players work with a group where each individual will learn and compete with others throughout the training session. Group training will provide some of the same skills and knowledge as individual training, but without complete 1 on 1 instruction.

Team workouts are available and serve as a great chance to improve not only the skills of the players, but to develop team chemistry further. Our GZT staff is open to hosting, as well as traveling to train teams in preparation for, or during their seasons.

Program Development

Let GZT step into your world and overhaul your processes and development to build a championship level culture, reputation and professionalism.  Allow us to help educate and create more knowledgeable and versatile coaches, players, staff and management. Together we will help revamp, or build on your current business operations, strength and conditioning/athlete care, and player development among other major areas of importance. 

DRAFT PREPARATION

Prepare for the NBA Draft and long-term career success with Ground Zero Training. Through our individually tailored training program, NBA workouts will be replicated, and our players will be put in a position for optimal performance in front of team personnel. Together, we will work to advance your skill set, and improve NBA Draft status.

Top notch training at your fingertips. 

 

In our training package, we have packed in drills that focus on your ball handling, shooting, pure scoring, and play making abilities. With dedication and consistent training, these drills should show results in your game quickly. High school, collegiate, and professional athletes have all been through our program which has elevated their game to a higher level. Our Pre-Draft members have utilized these drills heavily, and that has resulted in 21 players being selected in the last 4 NBA Drafts with 13 of those being selected in the 1st Round! You cannot expect the drills to work if you do not put in the work.
We stress repetition which creates great habits and develops instincts on the court.
