Collingwood Best & Fairest, Collingwood AFL Premiership Player 2010

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 training with Joey Hayes.

Katie Brennan
Richmond Tigers AFLW Captain

The time I spent training with USP and Joey Hayes turned my dreams of becoming a professional AFL player into reality. It laid the foundations for the footballer and person I am today! I learned so much about the key pillars of high performance and developed more strength, power and confidence in my ability than ever before! Joeys knowledge and wisdom is infectious and he is a true leader in his field! If you are currently the best in your sport or simply want to make a team. Joeys training programs will make you better!!!

Sam Gilbert
National AFL Draft 2005 Pick 33 to St Kilda, NAB Rising Star Nominee 2007

When I missed out on the QLD State under 18 AFL team I was shattered. I thought I had lost my chance at playing professional AFL and my career was slipping away. That was, until I sought the services of Joey Hayes.

I heard Joey Hayes was the best at getting athletes into the best shape of their lives, both physically, spiritually, mentally and emotionally! I was skeptical at first, but my initial fears were unfounded.

After my first session in THE PIT I knew this was the right and only choice! And THE PIT would be my new best friend!

Joeys professionalism, enthusiasm, meticulous preparation and individual programming ensured I would be the fastest, strongest and mentally toughest athlete on the footy field.

If you want to reach your potential and be the best athlete you can possibly be, then you need to train with Joey!

Many Trainers that have no Strength and Conditioning Qualifications or Football Coaching qualifications try to copy what I do, but none of them can duplicate the results for junior and professional athletes alike. Often footballers attempt to train on their own yet they have NO direction and are merely guessing what should be done.

Most footballers are actually detraining themselves, making themselves slower, weaker and increasing their risk of injury.

Prior to training with Joey in THE PIT I never knew what was required in order to achieve my dream of being drafted to a professional AFL club.

Seeking the knowledge of Joey Hayes ensured I became The Biggest, Fastest and Strongest and mentally toughest athlete I could be. Through Joey’s Intense training program, nutrition and supplementation plan I was putting on a minimum of a kilogram of lean muscle every week!

Joeys enthusiastic approach to coaching makes him a leader in his field and gave me the competitive advantage needed to succeed with my personal goals and aspirations. Joey recognizes the athletes individual needs and tailors his programs around these specific requirements.

If you’re serious about reaching your full potential and playing a professional sport, I’d highly recommend the professional coaching services of Joey Hayes. It is the best decision I ever made and I would not be in the position I am in now without Joeys training. His conversion rate for athletes who reach their dreams and achieve their goals speaks for itself.

Q: What are the age limits for the training camp?

A: The Strongman Camp has 4 age group sectors with each group undertaking specialized training for their specific level of development. Junior Athletes from 8-12 years of age. Youth Athletes 13-15. Senior Athlete 16-25. Masters Athletes 26-50 years of age.

Q: How come I only pay for 1 session?

A: We do not charge the full investment for the camp upfront as we want to ensure the young footballers and parents get to try the camp Risk Free and see what the Strongman Camp is REALLY about-it’s not just about football! Through our experience running the camp for the last 10 years we know that 99% of the young footballers love it and have never experienced anything like it-from the coaching, the training drills and meeting AFL footballers that Joey has trained. (You get to try us out and we get to make sure you’re a good fit for our program)!

Q: Are there any refunds if I miss a session?

A: The strongman camp is designed to transform your physical and mental being and we expect committed athletes to attend. Through our experience the culture and environment we cultivate ensures athletes never miss sessions. If an athlete is injured they can usually still train or work around it. It is this mindset and fundamental belief and philosophy that sets our strongman camp apart as such there are no refunds.

Q: Joey why do you make the athletes play multiple sports, most of the athletes you coach are footballers, so why do they play soccer, basketball, rugby, touch football, Gaelic football, European handball, mixed martial arts at Strongman Camp?

A: Through my coaching experience athletes that play multiple sports become better athletes. I can tell you that almost none of the professional athletes that I have coached only played 1 sport. Kurt Tippett Played Basketball and Soccer before playing AFL, Nick Reiwoldt was a state cricket player and represented QLD for little athletics. Dayne Beams played Cricket at an extremely high level. Sam Gilbert played Rugby League for NSW as a junior. Brayden Crossley played basketball. By playing multiple sports athletes develop better motor skills and co-ordination, reduce the risk of boredom and over-use injuries and develop transferable skills to their chosen sport. For example, having an AFL footballer playing touch develops his agility to a greater extent than simply playing AFL. It also decreases the risk of overuse injuries from kicking the ball.

Q: What makes Strongman Training so special and unique?

A: Strongman Training develops an array of physiological qualities such as strength, power, anaerobic endurance, agility and injury prevention. The odd awkward and unusual implements develops true functional strength from head to toe. The real world strength transfers directly onto the sporting field. Strongman training assists in eliminating common weaknesses in athletes (Grip strength, core stability, eccentric strength) and includes natural and alternating patterns. Strongman training forces increased recruitment of ‘core’ muscles during execution. The exercises incorporate the concept of multi-planar unilateral proprioception. Nearly all sports rely upon movement in any direction at any given moment, largely done on one leg.

Strongman training creates fun and competitive environment leading to positive training situations. It can also break the monotony and boredom of training. It has extremely positive psychological effects; mental toughness has been known to increase as a result of mixed strongman and endurance type training. You can check the article here:

Q: Will my son/daughter be expected to undertake the Strongman Strength Training Component of the session even if they have never done any weights or strength training before?

A: Most likely not, all athletes are assessed based on their level of physiological development. It is this process that ensures athletes are challenged with minimal risk of injury. With that in mind all athletes will benefit from some resistance training whether it be simply body weight exercises or more advanced exercises like the Strongman Training. This is where our specialized expertise and experience ensures athletes receive the optimal training that is perfect for their age, requirements and physiological level of development.

Q: Does the camp run during school time?

A: No, the camp is run over 6 consecutive Saturdays from 8am-10am, as such there is no school days missed.

Q: Can I get a refund If I miss a session?

A: Unfortunately our policy is clear, we expect strongman members to complete each and every session. The camp is designed to elicit the greatest results when attending for the duration of the camp, this cannot be achieved by missing sessions. If you cannot commit for the duration we’d prefer you not attend.

Q: Can I get a refund if I’m injured?

A: As per our strongman membership forms and agreement strongman athletes are required to attend every session. Much like a professional athlete if you are injured, you can usually still train. As part of our strongman principles we work through and we work around, in other words we display adaptability.  We have exercise rehabilitation specialists as part of our strongman team. Injured athletes will be placed under their care and guidance to help them return to sport. Minor injury is not an excuse to miss a session when qualified injury rehabilitation staff are on hand and available at our camp.

Q: What about missed sessions or unused sessions can they be credited?

A: Under certain circumstances these sessions may be credited for another camp; this is done on a case by case basis, missed sessions due to holidays or changing your mind are not valid reasons for crediting a session.

Q: Are females allowed to attend the camp?

A: Yes of course females are welcome to attend!! In fact the females that have attended the camp have achieved breath taking results with many of last years girls making representative teams, state teams and All Australian AFL teams!

You can click the link here to find out about Female High Performance Program.

Q: How much is the full cost for the 6 week camp?

A: We are still arranging for our other strongman activities. Each year Joey and our elite coaches select a variety of unload activities ranging from Paint Ball, Mental Skills Workshops, high ropes courses, rock climbing, gymnastics, mountain climbs and hikes that allow the athletes to recover, refresh and develop other skills whilst providing a fun environment. The investment for remaining weeks will be outlined at the completion of the 1st High Performance camp session on 16th January 2021. The investment usually ranges between $247 and $297 for the duration of the camp.

Q: Do you only do football based skills sessions-are there any other activities involved?
A: No we use a wide activities and methods to enhance performance, recovery and develop leadership. Previous years activities have included Planet Commando Sessions, Kokoda Trail Events, Mental Skills Training, Rock Climbing, Mountain Warning Hikes and P3 Recovery Visits.

Sam Michael
Essendon AFL Club

After being delisted by the Brisbane Lions in 2014 and being denied of another AFL opportunity I signed on with the Redland Bombers to play in the 2015 NEAFL season. I finished the 2nd half of 2015 with solid form however I knew that I needed to find an edge if I wanted to take my football to another level and realise my dream of playing at the elite level once again.

I found that edge with Joey Hayes after being introduced by another USP athlete Callum Carsledine. Joey’s training methods were unique and highly tailored to enhance my physical performance. Not only did Joey make me a better athlete, but he also gave me the confidence I needed to truly believe that I was physically and mentally ready for any AFL opportunity that came my way.

Sure enough after 3 months of training in the Pit, my opportunity came with the Essendon Football Club.

Never have I found a Coach who has been so passionate in helping athletes achieve their dreams as Joey Hayes – his track record speaks for itself!
