He started as a graduate strength coach at Jacksonville State University before moving to teach and coach at the high school level. Brooks is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association and on the Alabama Board for the NSCA. Coach Barron started coaching in 2000 after playing and has well over 15 years of strength and conditioning experience. He has had the privilege of coaching elite 4 and 5 star talents in high school assisting them to SEC schools like Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi State, Army, Air Force and many others. Brooks Barron is also a member of the advisory board for the NSCA in Alabama. He has been an advisor with the NSCA in AL since 2016.
Brooks quickly climbed the ladder of success in coaching, getting his Specialist Degree in Education, and after 13 years as a football coach and strength and conditioning coach he decided to get into business for himself. Coach Barron went from a full-time teacher and coach to a full-time Owner of a Sports Performance Training Business, MVP Training LLC that was created in 2011. He developed this business out of the need for education in strength and conditioning for other high school and middle school coaches and seeing young athlete’s get injured unnecessarily. Through his experience and many great mentors Brooks Barron has created quality training, consulting, and coaching where it is needed the most.
His passion for helping educate high school and middle school coaches about the relationship of preventing injuries and weight room practices remains as he joins the Athlete Training and Health team.
