Hitzelberger – Will

Best known for his intensity and motivation for success, Will Hitzelberger founded SPECTRUM Sports Performance determined to build one of the most elite training facilities for athletes. Since founding SPECTRUM in 2005, Hitzelberger has grown the name and reputation around the country by training Collegiate All-Americans, Draft Picks in Baseball, Soccer and Football, and contracting with professional organizations such as teams and companies.

Hitzelberger broke into International soccer in the Spring of 2014 when he was brought on staff with the Jamaican Women’s Football National Team as the Fitness Coach. He continues to work with the Senior team, U20’s, U17’s.

Other projects Hitzelberger is involved in include consulting with USA Track and Field, Wake Canada and Red Bull Wake. With USATF, Hitzelberger was brought in as a sports-science expert to evaluate the strength training protocols and integration with track work with specific USATF groups. In 2013, SSP began to attract world-class wakeboarders and with that, Hitzelberger was brought into the Red Bull Wake Camp in Orlando. Hitzelberger then integrated an FMS Screen with the Red Bull Wakeboarders during the camp. Hitzelberger then led a team of performance specialist at SSP to re-design Wake Canada’s performance testing protocols and implementation process.

Hitzelberger began his coaching career in Tampa, FL with Jodie Johnson after finishing his collegiate soccer career at the University of Tampa, where he won the Division II National Championship in 2001 and graduated with a degree in Exercise Science and Sport Studies. In 2004, Hitzelberger left Tampa, FL to take a position with the New York Mets, where he would spend the season with their Minor League affiliate, Brooklyn Cyclones. During his time with the Mets, ideas and blueprints began to develop, which would evolve into Spectrum Sports Performance.

As President of SSP, Hitzelberger oversees all business development and currently heads the Strength and Conditioning Program at Rollins College. Hitzelberger is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Coach (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), a Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) and Performance Enhancement Specialist (PES) through the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and a USA Track and Field Level 1 Coach.
