Take Your Game To The Next Level! (609) 638–1200

Meet Coach Duane Carlisle

Many moons ago I was a D1 collegiate athlete, I raised three collegiate athlete sons, and I’ve coached thousands of young athletes who have gone on to become collegiate athletes. To say I’m familiar with the rigors of what it takes to become a collegiate athlete is an understatement. But having successfully navigated the process with three sons, I also know what it takes as a parent to support a child with college athletic aspirations.

To help make your decision easier in choosing me and Carlisle Performance Systems as your child’s performance coach, I’ve done my homework and amassed some of the highest honors, numerous certifications and pursued higher education. I won’t bombard you here with the specifics, but they’re listed below so you can put your mind at ease.

Having been in the performance industry over 25 years, I’ve helped youth athletes develop the fundamentals of proper movement mechanics; I’ve coached professional athletes pushing the physical limits of the human body; and I’ve personally trained Silicon Valley CEOs to healthier living. I guess you could say my superpower is training people of all ages – womb to tomb – although I prefer keeping people out of the tomb!

My passion is developing kids through youth sports – I’d probably be a director of a YMCA if I wasn’t coaching your sons and daughters. I like to keep training fun with 80s and 90s soul, R&B and hip hop music – you might even catch me pretending I was a Jabawockeez dancer in between training sessions. Even though fun is a major ingredient to training, so is hard work and dedication. And that’s what I’ll demand of your child when training with me and no doubt you’ll get to see the fruits of their labor.
