“I was initially approached by Christian in the spring of 2017 about working with our football program. It was immediately apparent to me that his passion for working with young people to achieve their full potential, mentally and physically, was the driving force behind his aspirations. The First Pick Performance training approach is very upbeat, organized, cutting edge, and demanding of each and every athlete. We saw significant and consistent progress by almost every player in explosiveness, flexibility, strength, and overall athletic improvement. Based on our experience at Omaha North, I have no hesitation in recommending any athlete, regardless of sport, to achieve their maximum potential with First Pick Performance.” 

- Larry Martin, Head Coach - Omaha North Football



“First Pick Performance has run our preseason strength and conditioning program the last two years. Grant and Christian have done an outstanding job training our athletes and getting them ready for the season. Their intensity and attention to detail is second to none, and I would highly recommend them to any athlete looking to maximize their potential.”

- Eric Behrens, Head Coach - Omaha Central Boys Basketball



“Grant and Christian have done a tremendous job of working with our athletes. Their knowledge of exercise training, combined with their interest in developing customized training for our swimmers, has created a product that has made our swimmers much stronger and more explosive. Working with First Pick Performance has helped our athletes achieve numerous personal best times, and countless new achieved time standards. But most importantly, they care about how our swimmers are doing, both in and out of the water.”

- Jay Thiltgen, ACE Head Swim Coach/Seniors Coach



“Grant and Christian are as good as it gets! I would recommend them to anyone. They have done a phenomenal job with our basketball team the last 2 years. They are knowledgeable, dedicated, and strong motivators for our players. Most importantly, they developed a strong rapport with each athlete and know how to push them to maximize their potential. The gains made by our athletes speak for themselves, but equally important is the trust and respect they each have in First Pick Performance! Our guys are stronger and better athletes thanks to Grant and Christian, and they've both also helped instill a strong work ethic and desire to compete. Our program is positively impacted by our association with First Pick Performance.”
