Bert Cherry


NSCA CSCS, USA Weightlifting Sport Performance Coach

I have nearly 10 years of experience helping people of all ages connect with their bodies to increase sport performance, develop resilience against injuries, and bridge the gap from physical therapy to full return to activities.

I’m experienced in the following training modalities and use a blended approach of all of the following:

  • Barbell strength training
  • Olympic Weightlifting
  • Kettlebells for strength, power, endurance, and mobility
  • Variety of mobility methods including passive, active, and weighted movements
  • Speed and agility technique for field sports

In addition to my strength coaching background, I’ve coached ultimate at all levels, age groups, and in every division of the game. I understand the specific demands of the sport, the skills needed for different positions on offense and defense, and how they integrate with the physical movement patterns needed to execute those skills and resist injury.

My programming mentality is focused on understanding that all stress is stress and impacts training adaptation. We take into account the other aspects of your life and activities, whether it’s practice and pickup or stress from work, and cultivate a a connection with your own body’s response to those stressors.

The workouts I design tend to slow down and practice fundamental movement patterns from the game, with an emphasis on mobility, stability, and solid muscle activation. We then speed these patterns up, load them with weights, or put them in more game-realistic situations.
