Working with Joey has helped me achieve my dreams!

Every training session with Joey gives me the confidence and belief that I am moving closer to achieve my goals.

If you want a coach that is 100% committed, has a wealth of experience and knowledge of an athletes individual sporting needs but more importantly helps inspire belief and confidence in you to become the best athlete & person you can be.

I’d highly recommend Joey Hayes.

Matt Hodgson
Brisbane Bullets NBL, Australian Boomers Representative

Joey and I started working together two months before my first pre-season with Brisbane Bullets. During that time, Joey opened my eyes to training efficiency, proper nutrition, and practical ways to improve my recovery habits.

My performance improved dramatically due to his methods, and I enjoyed the best season of my basketball career by far. Upon working with him for 12 weeks so far in the off-season, he has helped me to increase my muscle mass while simultaneously decreasing skin folds, improve my single-leg stability, strengthen my core, and improve my athletic performance on the basketball court even more.

Maybe even more important than all of the above is that he genuinely cares about his athletes. Joey is someone who I see not only as a long-term working partner, but also as a friend that will support me during the tough times as well. If you want to become a better athlete AND a more well-rounded person, then you can’t do any better than enlisting Joey Hayes.

Often the hard part is getting access to the expensive, specialised, accurate testing equipment. Our USP Athletes have access to the latest Physical Assessment and Performance Testing from VALD including:

To purchase the VALD Testing Equipment Package would cost $1,000s of dollars, but the data VALD Testing Equipment provides athletes and coaches is priceless! And is one of the key reasons behind the results and success of our USP training programs! 

If It’s Not Accurate, It’s Not Relevant!

Richmond Tigers AFLW Captain

My time in the USP PIT Gymnasium turned dreams into reality. The time I spent in the USP PIT Gymnasium coached by Joey and surrounded by likeminded athletes created the foundations of the footballer, and person I am today. I learnt so much about the key pillars of high performance and developed more strength, power and confidence in my ability then ever before.

The atmosphere at the USP PIT Gymnasium is like no other and cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world. Joeys knowledge and wisdom is infectious and he is a true leader in his field. No matter if you are currently the best in your sport, you are injured or you are looking to make a team – he will make you better and get you where you want to be. I can’t thank Joey enough for the lessons I leaned and the experiences I had in the USP PIT Gymnasium and carry with me to this day.

I’m Going to Ask You Bluntly:

  • Imagine if you could instantly see How Effective your Training Program was?
  • Or if you could immediately Identify the Physical Limitations that Inhibit your athletic Performance?
  • What would it be like to Never have to Second Guess your Training Program Choices and decisions ever Again?
  • What if conducting the Performance Assessment and Physical Testing and Interpreting test Results Like an Expert was Easier than you think?
  • Often the hard part is Getting Access to the Expensive, Specialised, Accurate Testing Equipment. Accurate Speed Testing Light Gates alone cost approx $10,000. If It’s Not Accurate It’s Not Relevant!

Not to mention Figuring Out The Relevant Sport Specific Physical Performance Tests to perform. If It’s Not Specific To The Sport It’s Not Valid!

Then Analysing That Information to Construct a Training Program and Make the Correct Training Decisions.

I have trained in ‘THE PIT’ with Joey for 14 years. In this time he helped me become BIGGER FASTER and STRONGER!

Why You Need An Expert?

Many Coaches and parents try to copy or conduct and perform their own testing and assessments, but none of them can Duplicate The Results.

This is Because the Tests They Perform Aren’t Relevant To the Sport Nor their tests Accurate, Valid or Reliable due to changed testing conditions they haven’t accounted for or taken into account.

Often Coaches Conduct the Testing But They Have NO Direction and are merely Guessing What Testing Should Be Done. Most Testing Is Actually Useless and actually Increases their Risk of Injury and Does Not Predict Performance.

Nick Buchanan
Tasmania Tigers Cricketer, Brisbane Heat

On the advice of my physio Victor Popov, I started working with Joey in May 2016 after failing to play a single cricket game with the QLD Bulls Cricket team in the previous 5 years due to chronic injuries to my back, shoulder, hip, Achilles, knee, groin, hamstring and elbow. Through Joey’s world class program he was able to rehabilitate my body and mind to allow me to play 15 games which culminated in selection for the Brisbane heat cricket team in December 2016 and a subsequent contract with the Tasmanian Cricket in August 2017. Joey’s programs and attention to detail are what separates the good from the great! And from my experience exceed anything I ever received at the professional clubs I played for.

Collingwood AFL Premiership Player 2010

Since I was a youngster I always dreamed of playing AFL footy at the highest level. To play at the elite level, I knew I’d have to get Bigger Faster & Stronger!

That is when I sought the guidance and expertise and wisdom of Joey Hayes. I’d seen and heard about the amazing results he’d produced with previous AFL footballers, so I gave him a call.

This would have been one of the smartest things I’ve ever done! I was blown away by the results! Within 3 weeks he increased my vertical jump by 29cm, my speed, agility and explosive power went through the roof! To say he has mastered the art of strength and conditioning and fine tuning football performance would be an understatement!

If you are fair dinkum about having a crack at playing top level sport I’d highly recommend seeking the services/training with Joey Hayes at THE PIT. The only regret I had was not training with him sooner! Do yourself a favor get into his program – You won’t regret it!
