ABOUT

Absolute Human Performance

Absolute Human Performance is a training facility devoted to helping the serious athlete who is looking to maximize and reach his or her potential. It is also for anyone who wants to reach their fitness goals and ensure their long-term health. Each athlete receives individualized programming that is specific to their unique goals, and is given the coaching needed to facilitate and execute their plan.

At AHP, everything starts with the initial assessment. This is done 1-on-1 and covers everything from your injury history, training experience, sport and position, to goals. From the information obtained from your assessment, your individualized training program will be created. This requires a great deal of attention to detail, so you'll be given your program at your following session. From that point forward, you will be closely coached by AHP's highly qualified strength and conditioning professionals.


Why AHP?

TESTIMONIALS

Here is what people are saying about us:


"As an MLB Draft pick out of High School and an NCAA Division 1 athlete, I can honestly say that I would never be where I am without the help of Taylor Burns. I started working with Taylor in 2011 when I was about 14 years old and he helped me develop mental and physical tools that I not only rely on to this day, but also are noticed and praised by other coaches. His level of commitment to the athletes he trains serves as an example of the commitment it takes to achieve the success you strive for. Taylor is always researching and improving his skills as a trainer, and is not afraid to adapt and try new things. Taylor is not only an extremely insightful and effective instructor, but also a great inspiration. Whether it is strength and conditioning, mental game training, or baseball skill instruction, Taylor is as good as any coach I've ever had".
- Jackson Wark (2015 New York Mets Draft Pick, and pitcher at Saint Louis University)

"Taylor Burns changed my career immediately. From the moment I started training with him I noticed that his attention to detail and intelligence was unmatched by any training professional I had ever worked with before. His individualized warm-ups and workouts increased my athleticism exponentially and I saw that athleticism translate into tremendous gains on the mound. His training program helped me add velocity and gave me the strength and mobility I needed to perform for a full season and pitch deeper into games. Taylor's work ethic is inspiring and he pushes you to work just as hard for yourself as he does for you.".
- Ethan Elias (Professional Pitcher, Chicago Cubs & Arizona Diamondback's organizations)

"You're not going to find someone who cares more about helping you better yourself in baseball and as a person than Taylor Burns. He's all about doing whatever he can to help you further you along in your career and give you the opportunity to get stronger and throw harder".
- Lucas Williams (2016 Houston Astros Draft Pick)

"I can promise you that while you're here at Absolute Human Performance you will become a better athlete, you will excel in your sport, and you will push your physical and mental limits to places you didn't know existed. But I can also promise you that and it won't be easy. There will be moments to talk and joke, but realize you're here to work. While you're here you will go to places that are uncomfortable, and you're going to have to learn how to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. I can promise you that Taylor isn't going to be there holding your hand, but he will be standing next to you doing everything he can to get you where you want to go. To me that's worth a lot more".
- Noah Cunningham (University of Alberta Soccer Player, 2016 CIS National Championship Tournament MVP)

"Taylor's eternal quest for knowledge and attention to detail has made him succeed as a trainer, coach, and mentor in the years I have known him. Those attributes will allow him to continue to excel in the years to come".
- Allan Wark (Father of long-time trainee, and 2015 New York Mets Draft Pick, Jackson Wark)

"Our son Jeremie left home in Moncton NB, when he was barely sixteen years old, to pursue his baseball career at Prospect's Baseball Academy, in Saint Albert AB. Taylor was a coach and fitness & health instructor for the academy.

"Not only did Taylor quickly become a mentor and friend to our son, but what he was able to do over the course of two years, was nothing short of a complete body and mental transformation. Like most teenagers of this generation, our son lacked effort and commitment, and was not in a physical condition to maximize his development as a young man, let alone as an elite baseball player. After a few months only, Taylor had completely transformed our son's mental and physical state, and had instilled in him, the necessary qualities that would bridge the gap from being a local talent, to becoming a fit, healthy, and committed athlete".

- Pierre-Luc Arseneau (Father of former AHP athlete and NCAA DI Baseball Player, Jeremie Arseneau)

"Taylor transformed me from someone who thought he was an athlete, to an actual athlete. I'm now able to utilize my body way better than ever before. Not only has he helped me in the weight room, but he has helped me shape the right mindset needed to be successful not only on the field, but in life".
- Erik Sabrowski (College Baseball Player, 2017 Edmonton Prospects MVP)

"I began training with Taylor Burns my senior year of High School. I played competitive golf and was looking to take my game to the college level. I never enjoyed working out or training before, but I can truly say that Taylor gave me a passion for becoming a stronger and better athlete. He takes an interest in every athlete he trains, and really knows how to motivate them to work hard. As I continued to train with Taylor every day I was looking forward to seeing what I could accomplish and was impressed with the progress I was making as an athlete. I could have never reached my goal of playing college golf without the help and support that I received from Taylor".
- Alicia Easthope (Golfer at University of Montevallo)
