Now more than ever, is the time to focus on healthy living. With the help of our strength and conditioning coaches and athletic trainers, Norfolk Collegiate has committed itself to providing students with a foundation for building a healthy lifestyle.

These resources expand beyond the varsity athletes and team sports, and are available to all Norfolk Collegiate students. The goal of these programs is to teach students healthy lessons and habits now by showing them how to utilize fitness equipment and recognize when their bodies may need a rest or medical attention. 

 Our student-athletes utilize the following areas in our strength and conditioning programs:

  • Fitness Room 
  • Weight Room
  • Training Room


Strength & Conditioning Coach Brandon Trusty

In cooperation with a partnership with Sentara, Brandon Trusty joined Norfolk Collegiate as the head strength and conditioning coach in August 2017. Trusty is a familiar face having provided workouts for the summer fitness program in 2017 through Fuel Sports Performance.

Trusty earned his Bachelor of Science degree in sports science and human performance with a concentration in kinesiology from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University. He currently is a certified strength and conditioning specialist through NSCA, a corrective exercise specialist through NASM, a USA weightlifting sports performance coach and a USA track and field level 1 coach.

He takes a targeted approach to training focused on your sport of choice. Strength and conditioning is functional in nature and requires a solid foundation before introducing skill to the equation. Strength and conditioning helps athletes achieve their desired performance goals by assessing inefficiencies, developing skill sets, building technique and honing in biomechanical memorization.

Trusty comes to us as a former Arena Football League-SJS, Canadian Football League-MTLA and NCAA American Football player. He has worked with numerous athletes in performance enhancement ranging from high school, collegiate and professional athletes in the National Football League (NFL).
