Duane Carlisle
Speed, Strength and Conditioning Specialist

Duane Carlisle

Lightning Fast Training Systems

Duane Carlisle is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist Speed, Agility and Quickness Instructor. He is Owner and Executive Director of two training facilities and is an Adidas Supported Training Consultant.


For Duane Carlisle, sports training and fitness is not only a career, but a passion. It is this reason that Duane Carlisle, his Peak Performance Sports Training Center, Inc., New Jersey, and his new Lightning Fast Training Systems, LLC, Downingtown, PA, are in a class of its own.

We all know the phrase "actions speak louder than words," and for Duane Carlisle words cannot express the outstanding performance and award winning results that have come from his many years of experience and his passion for motivating athletes.

Former University of Maryland All-American Athlete, Carlisle has trained and inspired over 10,000 athletes in over 14 different sports. Out of those athletes, he has developed All-Americans, Olympic hopefuls, pro-athletes, and athletes of the year. Carlisle has trained over 500 athletes receiving Division 1 scholarships.

Because of his one-of-a-kind strength and conditioning training techniques, Duane has had the opportunity to coach at both the collegiate and professional level. For three years, Duane was the assistant sprint and jump coach at Penn State University. He also worked for the Philadelphia Eagles two-and half years as a seasonal assistant strength and conditioning coach and served as the speed development coordinator for the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for two years. Being a role model for many athletes, he has also served as meet director for the Pennsylvania State Special Olympics Track and Field Championship.

Carlisle has not only proven to be a benchmark for sports training, he is also an inspiration for individuals wanting to keep a healthy lifestyle. Duane coordinated and directed a one-day fitness and health extravaganza for the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business also known as "Duane Carlisle's Wharton School of Business Fitness Challenge". Because this clinic was such a success, he received national attention in one of IDEAA magazine's fitness publication and the National Strength and Conditioning Association.

What makes Duane Carlisle an expert in sports training are the roles he has played on and off the field. He has shared his expertise on the NFL combine on sports talk shows as well as served as a columnist for South Jersey's The Courier Post newspaper. First in the area, he published over 100 columns for the past four years on various topics focusing on sport-specific training. His Peak Performance programs were featured on Fox channel's, "Good Day Philadelphia." Currently Duane provides a one-minute training tip of the Inquirer High School Show on KYW channel 3, Saturdays at 9:30 am.

Duane is a powerful and energetic speaker and has shared his overwhelming knowledge on health, fitness and sports training with groups from the Cooper Health Care System and the New Jersey State Strength and Conditioning Clinic. To show his amazing ability to motivate and instruct athletes, health conscience individuals and team leaders, Duane created his own sports training video, "Train Smart," featuring Randall Cunningham from the Minnesota Vikings, Ben Davis from the San Diego Padres, and Aaron McKie of the Philadelphia 76ers.

Duane Carlisle is available for inspirational, motivational and instructional presentations for athletic teams, corporate or organizational meetings, training sessions and banquets.

The Peak Performance Sports Training Programs, Inc., under the direction of Duane Carlisle has risen above the rest and still remains in a class of its own...Second to None.

"This is what I am trained to do, everything from an athlete's diet to building up stamina for his or her specific sport to enable the athlete to attain their maximum potential." -Duane Carlisle
