“Having obtained my Masters from Seton Hall it feels great to be back in NJ. I am lucky enough to have worked with some high level schools in the area like Bergen Catholic.

When you come to SPL Ridgefield as an athlete, you have access to cutting edge equipment and the latest sports science modalities used by the top athletes in the world.

SPL trains top athletes of all ages and skill levels including amateur and professional athletes from MLB, NFL, UFC, CFL, MLS, and United States Olympic Teams. Every athlete starts with an assessment and baseline performance analysis before moving into specialized training and recovery techniques based on those results.   

"The SPL difference is using science and data to engineer peak athletic performance. We use only proven technologies and methodologies that are effective at any skill level of sport. As a former collegiate athlete, one of the most exciting offerings SPL has is the brain and vision training tools. These systems train the athletes vision, brain and sensory processing since 90% of the information received by the brain comes via the eyes. By training the athletes' vision, we can make them better players in just a few weeks. I've seen good athletes become great after our sports vision training program,” said Michael Greene, Co-Founder and Managing Director at SPL, BMS, PES.
