Saddlebrook Sports Performance

The Saddlebrook Sports Performance program has garnered nation-wide acclaim for its personalized nutrition and general fitness training programs for professional, aspiring and collegiate athletes, setting us apart from other Tampa resort hotels. Led by Chris May, Director of Sports Performance, we work with athletes who play baseball, football, tennis, golf, hockey and other sports.

How Our Program Works

Every athlete is assessed to determine their competencies and target areas for improvement, including strength, speed, conditioning, agility and flexibility. These strenuous programs take place daily on the FieldTurf and natural-turf sports fields and in the Performance Center in our Sports Village. Our staff then customizes a meal plan, which is prepared by Saddlebrook’s award-winning culinary team overseen by Executive Sous Chef Mark Huynh.
