"Coach Pearson has been a huge part of my success!! He always expects greatness and accepts nothing less than 100% effort. Not only is Coach Pearson a great Strength Coach, he is also a great Mentor and Attitude Coach. IAAA- "It’s All About Attitude" is a catchphrase Coach Pearson uses and is passionate about -- something I carry with me in everyday life."

"Without a doubt, I would not have achieved the level of athleticism I am currently enjoying without the solid foundation of strength and conditioning developed while training with the Pearsons at 3PS."
NICK SCHILKEY #7
Ohio State University Hockey Captain and Graduate
"If you want your kid to reach his or her fullest potential as an
athlete there are no better
coaches around who know the strength and conditioning field better or how to motivate
athletes better than the Pearson's at 3PS! It's where I trained and honed my leadership skills for my roll at OSU."
University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Gymnast
"I was a little intimidated at first
when seeking strength and conditioning plus power development for my college gymnastics career, but the encouragement, motivation, guidance, and authentic caring I received from the 3PS team is exactly what I needed! I highly recommend all athletes desiring improved strength, power, and balance (especially females) to check-in at the Pearson's Peak Performance Sports Training Center!"
University of Toledo Captain
New England Patriots Training Camp Invitee
"What a privilege and awesome experience working out with the Pearson's and the 3PS Team!!! The workouts were mostly unbearable but were fun at the same time-figure that out! The whole atmosphere was always inspiring, intense, but definitely helpful for preparing me for my role as captain of a Division I football team winning a BCS Bowl game and
ultimately earning an invitation to the Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots training camp! The Pearson's are experts at strength and conditioning and definite motivators! God Bless!"
"I have been around training programs most of my life, from college to the pros, and the Pearson's program is definitely one of the best. Their discipline and conditioning programs have definitely improved our team's speed, strength, team chemistry, and third period endurance."
-Kirk Gibson Former Detroit Tiger and Major League Baseball World Series MVP
"Finding a training setting that instilled our same values and also able to guide our sons (and team) with expert conditioning knowledge was crucial but challenging to locate. How delighted we were to find this scenario in our own backyard! The Pearson's workouts fit perfectly and our sons (and team) loved the motivating tough training! Thank you!"
-Todd and Debbie Shoudy
"I can't believe this workout. Our program doesn't even come close to this!"
-Danny Dries Columbus Junior A Blue Jackets

Mike and Pat Pearson have been - and continue to be - monumental influences on my family and me. From observing them in high school to their stealth community service to their uncanny ability to anticipate future trends, their actions and words motivate all of us to leave each experience better than we found it.
We all know Mike and Pat as facilitating our strength and conditioning, but they are so much more than the title suggests. They coach from the neck-up as much as the neck-down, ensuring we holistically grow as athletes, students, teammates, managers, friends, sisters and brothers, spouses and parents. Their weight room is a teaching laboratory for life, with their training pedagogy a metaphor to strive for excellence in every endeavor. They are Icon’s in St. Clair County and the community is so very fortunate to have their leadership.
Mike and Pat are exceptional role models, better teachers, better leaders, and even better people.
