PLAE Pro Helps Keep Strength & Conditioning Coaches at the Top of Their Game


WOODSTOCK, Ga. – Jan. 7, 2019 – As a tool to equip strength and conditioning (S&C) coaches to advance their careers and continue to evolve the profession, PLAE has launched PLAE Pro, a comprehensive website and convenient mobile app that delivers credible educational content and enhances community.

A master hub of practical information and professional insights from those in the trenches, PLAE Pro includes the following:
