Mission Statement
Our mission is to achieve excellence by supplementing the Amherst College students' experience by safely enhancing their athletic performance. We pursue this objective through diligence, integrity, education, and sound strength and conditioning practices.

Philosophy
The Head Strength and Conditioning Coach believes in our Athletic Department’s commitment to fairness, teamwork, and an unwavering commitment to our students. We create effective and efficient strength and conditioning programs that ensure the best care for our teams.

The student-athlete is provided with a comprehensive and structured training program at their request designed to meet his or her needs. This program is progressive and involves ground based exercises in which the intensities and speed of movement are periodized to minimize the risk of injury and enhance athletic performance.

Facility
Amherst College has shown a tremendous commitment to providing the community with a clean, safe, and well-equipped facility to achieve fitness and performance goals. In 1999 the college performed a $13.4 million renovation project for the renewal of athletic facilities, notably constructing an 8,000 square foot Wolff Fitness Center at the heart of Amherst's gymnasium complex. The facility has since recieved numerous upgrades in equipment and will continue to receive constant maintenance to provide the Amherst College community with the necessary tools to be fit and healthy.
