Head Men's Soccer Coach and Director of Strength and Conditioning Renato Capobianco oversees the department's strength and conditioning department.
Capobianco provides a well-rounded background in the field of conditioning having been in charge of all conditioning programs during his four years as an assistant coach in Major League Soccer with the Tampa Bay Mutiny and New England Revolution. He has also served as a strength and conditioning coach at Harvard University where he was responsible for creating year round programs for eleven varsity sports. He was also an owner of a Fitness Together studio, an international personal training franchise, for seven years.
Capobianco holds a Master's degree in Exercise Science from San Diego State University and a CSCS certification from the National Strength & Conditioning Association. He has various articles and videos featured on StrengthCoach.com and authored the conditioning chapter in the book Coaching Dynamics (Matt Driver, 2004).
The weight room, completed in fall 2018, was constructed within a space previously used as a dance studio. With the new room, strength & conditioning sessions can now involve more student-athletes at the same time, making it easier for coaches to conduct multiple workouts within a single room. The new weight room features Perform Better extreme half-cages, Keiser Infinity functional trainers, Perform Better foam plyo boxes, and brand new dumbbells, Olympic plates, trap bars, and safety squat bars. The room also includes Ecore athletic ultratile flooring.
