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.

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.
DIRECTOR of operations
lead performance coach
Sports have always been a big part of Trevor's life, but his first experience with ETS came back in January of 2011, as he was coming out of the college football scene and had hopes to play professionally. After training with Ryan at ETS, Trevor knew it was the place for him. The training, atmosphere and energy was unmatched, and he had a significant increase in speed, strength and explosiveness. In addition to the results, the team/family aspect of becoming an ETS athlete was truly unique and is a big part of what brought him back to ETS on a professional level. Now that his playing days are over, Trevor is passionate about helping athletes gain a competitive edge and achieve their goals.
