SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Sanford POWER, the region’s premier sports performance training program, is supporting a new class of clients from Rep 1 Sports as the professional football prospects prepare for the NFL combine.

The pre-combine support includes providing expertise at Rep 1 Sports headquarters in Irvine, California, along with access to services in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, including an elite-athlete physical.

Last year’s class of Rep 1 Sports clients featured 10 NFL draft picks.

“The results speak for themselves. Every athlete from last year’s class either heard their name called during the NFL Draft or signed a contract with an NFL team shortly thereafter,” said Steve Young, president of Sanford Sports. “Sanford POWER helps these elite athletes reach their goals, and it is incredibly rewarding to see their hard work pay off.”

Sanford POWER offers sports and activity-specific training that incorporates the latest in strength development, speed, agility, plyometrics and explosive power. Sanford POWER is incorporated into the training of dozens of high school and college programs throughout South Dakota, North Dakota and Minnesota.

Rep 1 Sports, is a multi-sports agency based in Irvine, California. The agency represents some of the biggest names in the NFL, including Carson Wentz, Dallas Goedert, Cooper Kupp, Ben Roethlisberger, Jared Goff, James Conner and Brandin Cooks.

“Our clients see the value in working with the team from Sanford POWER,” said Chase Callahan, partner and NFL agent at Rep 1 Sports. “We’re in an industry that is about constantly improving performance and results, and Sanford POWER helps our athletes achieve both.”
