At the same time, he also served as an intern strength and conditioning coach at Southern Methodist University. While at SMU, he worked with the men’s soccer team, the women’s volleyball team, the women’s basketball team, and the entire swim program.
After graduation, Tim moved to Austin and began working for CATZ Sports in January of 2006. During his time at CATZ, Tim served as the Assistant Director of Performance and was responsible for training youth performance and adult fitness classes. He was fortunate enough to work with hundreds of fantastic individuals all looking to improve their fitness or their on-field performance.
In 2009, Tim was hired by the Austin Aztex Football Club and served as their Fitness Coach for the 2 years they played in Austin, TX. Tim was a part of the coaching staff and was involved in planning the team’s weekly training sessions, both on and off the field. Tim would train the players in the gym as part of their performance training, was present at all home games for warm-ups and cool-downs, and also consulted them on nutrition and fatigue recovery strategies.
In the spring of 2011, Tim decided that it was time to launch his own training venture and Meyer Athletic Development was born. Over the past 5 years, MAD Training has grown steadily, adding an adult fitness training to youth sports performance training program. Also in this time, MAD has been named the Official Dryland Training Partner for Nitro Swim Team’s top youth competitive teams, even accompanying several athletes to the 2016 U.S. Olympic Swim Trials held in Omaha, NE.
