RYAN + HEIDI ENGLEBERT
When Ryan and Heidi founded ETS in 2010, they had a vision of not only bringing cutting-edge training to the community to help develop better athletes, but also to help instill character traits that would serve those athletes well in life after athletics. Heidi excelled in soccer in high school, and played at the collegiate level at UW-Stout where she earned All-Conference and All-American honors. Ryan was a standout athlete in football, basketball and baseball in high school, and earned multiple D1 scholarship offers to play collegiate football. After starting his college career at the University of Wisconsin, and finishing it at UW-Stout, Ryan earned a spot in training camp with the Cincinnati Bengals. When his football career ended, Ryan found a new focus and passion in helping athletes reach their highest potential.
ADAM + CAITLIN THIELEN
Sports have been a big part of Adam and Caitlin’s lives from a young age. In college, Adam was an all-star football player at Minnesota State Mankato and Caitlin received a full scholarship to play D1 soccer at Iowa State University. Adam started training with Ryan at ETS his senior year in college, and attended a football combine where he was noticed by the Minnesota Vikings and invited to a Rookie Mini Camp. Just five years later, Adam is a First Team All Pro and one of the best Wide Receivers in the NFL. They are excited to partner with ETS Founders Ryan & Heidi Englebert, and bring ETS to the community to help other athletes reach their true potential. They also take great pride in raising their son Asher, and look forward to expanding their family in the future.
