Tom Schram is a reputable and experienced sports performance coach in the Western Washington region.  He has worked with many athletes and teams in building their strength and improving their conditioning, including many Division 1 collegiate athletes.  In 1997 Tom cracked his knee while playing basketball and began lifting weights at the local gym while in a cast.  From there his passion for helping athletes prepare for competition grew.  Tom was a Washington State track & field competitor while in high school and was driven to learn how to get the most out of his body.  Upon graduation Tom attended George Fox University where he began to specialize in preparing athletes for competition.  While there Tom worked at a local gym where he met Dewey Nielsen who has worked with high-level athletes and coaches.  Dewey introduced Tom to Sports Performance coaching. After graduating from George Fox, Tom went on to earn his Masters Degree from Arizona School of Health Sciences in Human Movement/Kinesiology*.
Tom opened Momentum Performance Training in February of 2009 and has since grown from coaching four kids to being the most sought after performance coach in the area.  His performance center is housed in a building on family property but when you enter you experience the excitement and professionalism.  When asked what his goals are Tom replies: “My goals remain the same for all of my athletes: to excel in their given sport or sports, to have a long career with no injuries and to earn some kind of college scholarship.  My proudest moments are when my athletes reach the goals that they have set for themselves.  They can look back and see how all of their hard work and commitment of time has paid off for them. I am proud of what I have done for them but I am even more proud to see how much THEY put in and how much THEY wanted it.  That is something that no one can ever take away.”
