Developing Elite Athletes – Carlsbad, San Diego

Maximize Your Results with a Dedicated Team in Your Corner.

Who Is Activ8?

Activ8 has been training athletes for over 10 years in Carlsbad, California. Our Founder, TJ Moreno, was concerned over the amount of preventable injuries encountered on the field and lack of athletic development being coached. This observation led TJ to maximize the time an athlete spent with a sports performance coach – Focusing on maximizing performance, preventing injury, and increasing athlete longevity.

The approach is simple yet innovative: Enhance the Athlete/Coach relationship by creating a custom program based on specialized assessments and executed with the best performance and testing equipment. Allowing athletes to train with confidence.

A decade later the Activ8 team continues to transform athletes by placing their needs first. The expert team of technicians and specialists on staff are here to match every client’s passion to become the athletes they envision.
