Explosive Training Systems (“ETS”) is a Sports Performance Training Facility for all athletes and all sports. ETS offers sports performance training (speed, strength and agility) for all ages. ETS’ main focus is developing our local youth into successful athletes, students, and members of the community.

ETS is the first sports performance training facility to incorporate natural physical enhancement, speed, strength, flexibility and conditioning, while simultaneously developing the athlete’s knowledge and understanding of their particular sport.  Our program is comprised of the latest in speed training, unique and proven strength training methods, position specific skill sets and drills, and most importantly competition of comparable athletes.

ETS aim’s to not only develop our clients athletically but academically as well. A successful athlete must be well trained, on and off the field. ETS develops athletic ability and character, simultaneously building confidence and pride. Our athletes leave ETS successful in their sport and the ‘game of life.’

ETS was founded by former head strength trainer EJ Barthel in 2009 (Barthel resigned in 2014 to join the Rutgers University Football Coaching Staff). ETS continues to be the top sports performance training facility in North Jersey. ETS’ coaching staff use their innate athletic ability, and their personal experience and knowledge gained from their athletic careers to successfully train professional and young athletes.
