President - Carl Putman
Carl Putman founded Train To Win Inc. in early 2016. As a lifelong resident of Brevard County and having been involved with athletics in the area since his youth, he saw the need and opportunity for numerous student-athletes who had the desire and motivation to excel and become leaders but did not have the kind of expert level coaching and mentorship needed to make the leap. Thus Train To Win Inc. was founded to help deliver those resources and provide financial assistance for those future leaders.
Carl attended and played basketball locally at West Shore High School, and then went on to become the first player in program history to play collegiate basketball after walking on with Flagler College's Mens Basketball team. He graduated from Flagler College with a B.A. in Sport Management in 2008.
Since then he has been active in the local community, initially in coaching with the basketball programs at Brevard Community College and West Shore High School. In 2011, Carl became the Program Director for Parisi Speed School XPC. Over 6 years he helped to grow the Parisi XPC program into a successful training gym that has serviced thousands of local athletes and seen many go on to collegiate athletics and extraordinary successes.
In addition, Carl has worked as the Lead Physical Training instructor for the Law Enforcement and Corrections Academies at Eastern Florida State College's Public Safety Institute, helping to institute a new standard of physical fitness for the program. He is also a published contributor on sites such as STACK and Breaking Muscle, among others.
Carl is currently a collegiate strength and conditioning coach in Melbourne and completing a graduate degree in Organizational Leadership. He currently resides in Palm Bay, FL and can be contacted at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or on social media via @coachcarlp or @traintowininc
