APAZ began to attract elite athletes from around the globe. Before too long, many of the top champions in sport began to call Athletes' Performance their off-season home.
In 2001, Athletes' Performance began its ground-breaking NFL Combine preparation program.

Today, Athletes' Performance has numerous world class training accolades and facilities in Arizona, Los Angeles and Florida.
