Experience the Difference
IAM is developed on faith based principles to utilize our God given talents to help lift others up through coaching, therapy and education. With a combined 40 years experience working with youth aged athletes as well as hundreds of college and professional athletes we provide a service unlike any other.
The complete athlete is not just a runner, jumper or thrower. The complete athlete is a combination of what they eat, how they think, their proper preparation within sports performance in the weight room, the development of fine motor skills, and quick reactions, the enhancement of biomechanics, strength and power while staying healthy. We consider all of these aspects when working with each individual and team.
Tried and true, but always transforming to provide an unparalleled experience.
We treat each individual as though they are one of our Gold Medal Olympians.
The science behind coaching, athletics, recovery, and mental prep continues to evolve. The Deckers are leaders in the industry in developing athletes through a unique way of coaching.
The results achieved of high numbers in strength, speed, movement enhancement and explosion are based on the in-depth study of biomechanics, anatomy, recovery, volume in general and geared toward the individual team or athlete.

Kind Words From Clients
"As a professional athlete, I have learned that in order to reach one's fullest athletic potential one must surround oneself with the best support team. Kate Decker is someone you want on your team. Having spent a good bit of time in the training room I found Kate's coaching and sports therapy style to be unparalleled. She covers all the angles in the recovery process with her wealth of knowledge on the table to her ability to motivate in the gym (in my case Kate used running and movement correction, ART and FST). Kate is simply the best at what she does. Even now, states apart, she continues to offer me help anyway she can which I think speaks volumes about her character and work ethic."
