SPORTS PERFORMANCE COACHES

Andrew Hamel MS, CSCS

Andrew founded Prodigy Sports Performance in 2011 with the objective of helping youth athletes reach the highest level of performance and competition they could. Since then, his mission has expanded to helping adult athletes take the necessary steps needed to transform their bodies and get in the best shape of their lives. When asked “What is Your Why?” Andrew will tell you that his why is to change lives.

A highly sought-after coach for healthy and injured athletes alike, Andrew has helped athletes of all ages and ability levels – achieve their highest levels of performance in a variety of sports. Behind Andrew’s expertise, Prodigy Sports Performance has rapidly established itself as a go-to training facility in the Tri-Valley.

Andrew believes that every coach should have a strong scientific understanding of the foundations of exercise, health, and sports performance. There is a lot of information floating around out in the world and it is easy to follow exercise programs found in magazines or on the internet from so called “fitness experts”. He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Kinesiology from Wilmington College, his Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology from Cal State East Bay and became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (C.S.C.S.) through the NSCA.

STEVIE JOHNSON CSCS, NASM, NESTA

Stevie comes to Prodigy Sports Performance after 10 years of working as a personal trainer in the corporate gym setting.  He graduated from Cal State East Bay with a Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications in 2006.  Stevie carries many certifications including the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), this is regarded as one of the highest certifications in the strength and conditioning industry.  Stevie understands what it takes to compete athletically at the highest level.  His collegiate basketball career began at Shasta Junior College where he spent 2 years before transferring and finishing at Cal State University Hayward.

Unfortunately, his playing career was cut short when he broke his leg training to play basketball professionally in Europe.  When his playing career ended, he took to coaching.  Some of the various coaching stops included the Golden State Warriors, Dublin High School, and the All Sports Academy Hawks.  Stevie has also served as a private basketball skills coach to some of the best up and coming talent in the Bay Area.  Basketball has afforded Stevie some opportunities that most only dream of.  He has talked and trained with some of the best NBA players and coaches and he has worked with 2K Sports on the production of NBA 2K.

Stevie brings a ton of knowledge and experience to the Prodigy Sports Performance team.  Our athletes love his eagerness to learn, his enthusiasm, his ability to motivate each athlete individually!
