A Chat with Streak to the Top
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Streak to the Top has a unique program to install lifelong health-and-fitness habits in students through special activities and mile challenges. Many programs, however, lack both child development and fitness training needed to bring these initiatives to life.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Whether your child excels on the field or on the court, our program can help him or her improve. We use proven speed- and strength-training programs to help each student enhance his or her skills.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The idea of Streak to the Top was conceived in 2009 when Lonnie Neal realized that his life story, knowledge, and accomplishments would have a great impact on the minds of young people. For the last 12 years, he has worked for an afterschool program called Beyond the Bell.
What do you love most about your job?
I love motivating young people and changing their life in a positive way. Once in my program, a high percentage of my children end up going right to a major Division I sports and some pro. I love to see positive results.
