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. Since that time he has become a certified Parisi Performance Coach and Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist via the NSCA. He has helped to grow the Parisi XPC program over the past 5 years into a successful training gym that has serviced thousands of local athletes.
In addition, Carl also is the Lead Physical Training instructor for the Law Enforcement and Corrections Academies at Eastern Florida State College's Public Safety Institute, and is a published contributor on sites such as STACK and Breaking Muscle.
Carl currently resides in Melbourne Beach, FL and can be contacted at email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or on social media via @coachcarlp or @traintowininc
