Building Resilient, Robust Athletes

Building resilient, robust athletes

Welcome to IronMan Performance

Why IronMan Performance? My ancestry is German, and Eisenmann means 'Ironman' in German, and my focus is on developing healthy, resilient, fit and strong student-athletes - body and mind - using a holistic, integrated approach through research, testing, training, education, and community outreach.

This website is intended to be a playground and archive for sharing my 25+ yrs of diverse and unique academic and practical experiences that have taken me from the playing field to the coaches office to the university classroom and laboratory to the weight room and into the board room. I want this website to be informative and impactful for exercise & sport scientists, strength & conditioning coaches, sport coaches, physical educators, researchers, teachers, students, pediatricians, sports medicine professionals, parents, and sport administrators - basically anyone interested in building resilient, healthy, active, and physically fit humans.

Feel free to browse, learn, share and implement this work. And, if you or your organization are interested in sharing a conversation, consulting or contracting with me, please get in touch via email @
