Ignition ran a 3-day camp at Colerain High School this week for athletes from 4th to 9th grade. It was great to see a good group of younger kids turn out for camp, and Ignition is looking forward to working with Colerain athletes in the future.
Good luck to all the Colerain athletes in their seasons this year!!

Last Monday through Thursday, Ignition led a training camp for football players at Wayne High School. The Wayne Warriors are located just north of Dayton, and are home to QB Braxton Miller. Miller announced on June 3 that he would join the Ohio State football team after he graduates.
About 60 athletes came out to Wayne High School to get Ignition training. The week ended with two athletes being recognized for their hard work and receiving a gift certificate for free training this summer at Ignition.
Ignition enjoyed working with the Wayne athletes and we wish them the best of luck this year in their seasons!

Ignition, along with US Army, sponsored the Marvin Lewis camp run by ProCamps this past Wednesday. It was a great night and huge success with about 200 high school football players training with Ignition on the turf at Paul Brown Stadium. There were athletes from all over the city between the ages of 15-23 who came to develop their speed and agility to help them perform at their fullest potential. The clinic was a free event, and the registrants also received Under Armour t-shirts, free Army gear and a free Ignition bag.
The kids got to start the night hearing from Coach Lewis on the practice fields before heading over to the stadium where they got training like the pros get, on the field the Bengals compete on every Sunday… what could be better.
The Ignition trainers split athletes into three groups and took them through an explosive workout, starting with some Army style push-ups and sit-ups before a tough Ignition session to improve their speed, strength and agility.
Possibly the most well represented school at the camp was Mount Healthy High School, with 40 athletes that attended. Head Strength Coach Luke Day didn’t want his athletes to miss out on this experience, “nobody does combine preparation training better than the Ignition Team. To have our guys get this experience at Paul Brown Stadium was an unbelievable opportunity” says Day.
