Barry Lovelace Athlete Training Academy. 










Join the All-Area, All-State, All-American and Morning Call Players of The Year Who train here!



When a parent or coach decides to work with a Sports Performance specialist they want one thing and one thing only...RESULTS! Soccer, softball, volleyball and baseball players, swimmers and divers, wrestlers, gymnasts and irish step dancers are just a few who come to train here. The most common results they ALL see very quickly are EXPLOSIVENESS, POWER and Improved QUICKNESS & REACTION.  It is the amazing results and word of mouth from current athletes, parents and coaches that drive our business and have athletes from all over and of all ages and levels enjoying the benefits of training under the watchful eye of "5-TIME Lehigh Valley Trainer of the Year", Barry Lovelace. 




Along with 1st Step Reaction, Explosivenessand POWER our athletes see incredible changes in confidence. Many go from very introverted to outgoing and more of a team player as well as begin to have tons of confidence on their field of play. This all stems from their hard work and newfound strength as well as how they are treated at the academy. Our main concern is offering a very non-intimidating and safe environment for the athlete. Here, it's ALL ABOUT THE ATHLETE and NOT the trainer.

"My daughter is a varsity softball player. We were very fortunate to find Barry Lovelace. Not only has he improved her pop-time, but he has taken one of the slowest runners on the team and made her fast enough to out run an infield hit. Barry has an enjoyable personality and he makes Kelsey's training experience fun. We truly feel his facility is the best training facility around!"

"Kate loves your training! She is seeing results after just six sessions! Last night at practice she was really happy with her performance. She is already hitting harder, is perfectly accurate when taking shots on goal, and feels overall much stronger - it's awesome!
Yvonne Siegfried
Mother of Senior High School Field Hockey Player



Athletes notice how STRONG and POWERFUL they become as soon as they start training at the Barry Lovelace Athlete Training Academy. Parents and coaches notice the immediate changes in CONFIDENCE and SELF-ESTEEM as well. This is the added bonus they receive on top of improved sports performance.





    How do these athletes see such incredible results??


With the simple use of flexible bands, medicine balls, kettlebells, unstable surfaces, and many other out of the box pieces of equipment, owner Barry Lovelace creates unique and highly effective exercises that work to improve the athletic performance of the athlete, and the results come fast. The Academy athletes are constantly receiving comments on their drastic change in strength and power as they travel and play their sport.



                      TWO-TIME All American trains at the Academy!



"My setting has improved so much since I started training with Barry. My shoulders are a lot stronger and my reaction is much quicker to the ball now. My core is strong which allows movements on the court to be more fluid. Thanks Barry!"

                                 We ARE different!



At the Barry Lovelace Athlete Training Academy, workouts and exercises are designed for the individual athlete as there are no cookie cutter workouts here. Parents pay lots of money at some athlete training facilities to see their child wait in a line to do the exact same thing that everyone does, no matter their athletic ability, their sport or their position in their sport. NOT HERE! The training at the Barry Lovelace Athlete Training Academy works because all exercises come from studying the movement patterns of the sport and then creating functional exercises based on those movements. Training this way not only creates athletic power and core strength, but prepares the athletes body for their sports specific demands.

"Barry has helped my team and I in ways I couldn't imagine. He has personally helped me with my speed, reaction time and core strength. I contribute much of my success as a volleyball player to him. Barry is one of the reason I am the player I am today"

 Read what Haleys' parents have to say:



"Haley and I are amazed at how quickly she has seen results after just a few workouts and continues to improve after every training session. She is throwing and pitching with more POP on the ball and has really improved her quickness and athleticism due to her core strength. Haley is much stronger not only physically, but also mentally due to the confidence you have helped build. Your positive attitude and encouragement along with your sincere care for the athlete can’t be duplicated. We are firm believers in your training methods based on the results we have seen and will be signing up our younger daughter Madison to train with you as well"

About Barry:



athlete training lehigh valley pa

Hello and thank you for visiting the online home of The Barry Lovelace Athlete Training Academy. My name is Barry Lovelace and I have always had a passion for fitness. In 2003 when I was downsized this passion turned into a means of income.

Training athletes and helping clients of all ages is not a job. In fact I love this so much that you will hear me say, "I haven't worked since 2003!"

It is a true honor to not only work with athletes in Allentown and the Lehigh Valley, but to work with athletes all over the world who either buy my training products, attend camps or clinics or who I train privately. To see their smiling faces and happiness when their goals are achieved is PRICELESS!

"Train with a purposeful meaning" is my philosophy as well as, 'Question Traditional Wisdom'. Your son, daughter or team WILL train with a purposeful meaning. Whatever your sport, I am here to help.

All athletes are welcome! Any athlete, any age, any level. Increasing Power, Quickness & Reaction, Vertical Jump, Swing Speed and Improving Overall Sports Performance after just a few sessions is what you will get when you use this style of training.

No heavy weights, No unsafe movements, and No egotistical personal trainers. You will get someone who cares about YOU and YOUR results - PERIOD.

Women's Health, Men's Health and Men's Fitness are just a few of the media outlets where my exercises and tips have been featured.

I thank you again for visiting and I look forward to seeing you at the Academy one day soon.
