Pryde Athletics was founded in 2014 by Ivan Ankwatsa MS. , a former collegiate strength and conditioning coach, with the vision of an injury prevention-driven approach to understanding athlete movement and development. Pryde Athletics is a sports performance and fitness facility that utilizes advanced sports science to assess and train youth, collegiate, professional and general fitness clients. We support and advise professional sports organizations with cutting-edge assessment, prescription and training services. Training and conditioning activities at Pryde Athletics Sports Academy are provided for athletes of all ages and skill ranges (elementary school through college). This is a multi-dimensional facility! “Pryde Athletics Sports Academy is not just for teams and organizations. We want this facility to be someplace for the entire community to use. We want it to be a place where parents can participate in our fitness and training programs while they are waiting for their kids to finish sports related activities at our facility.”
This team of people are phenomenal. My daughter came to them after having had MCL and ACL surgery. They not only got her through the first phase of rehabilitation but after 8 months had her playing college soccer at a top DII program. After having completed two sessions where she worked her butt off, she stepped on the field super strong and confident. Her body was super strong and she played with absolute confidence. Pryde team lead by Ivan are amazing. I highly recommend using these guys before and injury occurs. Had we done so, it’s likely my daughter would’ve not gotten hurt.Big thanks to Pryde. More...
The staff is incredible. They have worked with my daughter - helped her physically and mentally. The solid changes i have seen in her athleticism are strongly in part to Pryde. Today, we have started with them in rehabbing her torn shoulder. I have the utmost confidence knowing she is in good hands. More...
Day 1. Strength rehab on the torn ligament in her shoulder. Eros and Pryde Athletics are taking care of her. Unfortunately the 8 weeks of PT couldn’t get her back so the doctor prescribed strength and conditioning! So glad we have Pryde to rely on.
Very pleased with Prude Athletics. Started my Son on a sports Training program. Ivan is wonderful. All the staff is kind and very helpful. Best Money we ever spent for sports. Working on sports Training to help get in shape and prevent injuries. More...

Pryde has help me recover from all 3 of my c-sections and I don’t know where I’d be without them! The personal training is worth every dime to help recover and get ready for boot camp for me! ❤️ this place and people!
Best all around athletic training facility around!
Last August my son Peter had a serious soccer injury and had surgery for a broken tibia and fibula. After surgery, he used a scooter for about 2-3 months and started out with basic PT for mobilization. In addition to PT we had Ivan and his team start working with Peter immediately after surgery, one on one. Peter no longer walks with a limp. His first game back was just two weeks ago and he played like he was never injured. We owe all of this to PRYDE. Ivan and his team are absolutely phenomenal! They know how to treat and when to push to the next Level! Thank you for Everything PRYDE ATHLETICS ! More...
I have been going to Pryde since the beginning of December for post-rehab treatment of my frozen shoulder. To say I am impressed is an understatement. Eros’ education, training and attention to detail has allowed him to effectively improve the strength and range of my shoulder beyond what I thought was possible. He takes the time to develop a care plan specific to me based on my progress each visit. I highly recommend Eros and Pryde Athletics! More...
They have been amazing to work with and so flexible! Extremely supportive of my journey of losing weight post-partum and knowledgeable about what I should and shouldn’t be doing! I’ve worked with other trainers before and nobody has come close to the level of expertise that they have! I’ve had amazing results in a short period of time! I feel stronger and healthier ! If I could give 10 stars I would! More...
My son gained so much from the strength and agility training there this summer. It has been evident in baseball activities so far this year. Ivan, Eros and the whole staff are extremely knowledgeable and positive. I really like the focus on injury prevention. He can't wait to come back in June. More...
Great placeIvan is awesome
Pryde Athletics is great! Staff is professional and knowledgeable. Training is designed to help you accomplish your goals. Not only do the trainers encourage you to train, they make sure you are doing it safely!! Injury prevention is an important piece of training. My daughter has only been training for a couple months and we have already noticed a significant improvement in her speed and agility! Additionally, Pryde has a number of different classes and services. They truly have something for everyone! More...
Very knowledgeable staff and motivating atmosphere! Great place to bring your kids and yourself to tackle your goals.
A wonderful place to work out. I love their boot-camp, quick and tough! I love how motivating and personable the instructors are! Would recommend to anyone!
This place is awesome and Staff is great.
I love working out here. The trainers are great!
I found Pryde Athletics via Groupon and purchased a month of unlimited boot camp classes (for a great price). The trainers are knowledgeable and energetic, the workouts are fun and challenging and the atmosphere is encouraging and supportive. The class sizes are generally small and the trainers take their time to encourage you and correct form. I would definitely recommend Pryde Athletics! More...
Great people and great results! Really go above and beyond to work with each unique situation!
THE BEST FITNESS CLASSES I HAVE HAD. All the equipments are useful and the instructors are very good. Also they have lot of variations. Much better than just a Gym as more purposeful. More...

Great staff! They really know what they are doing and are pushing you to do your best and achieve success! Love Pryde!!
Ivan, Eros, and Christian are absolutely great! When I went to the bootcamps every day I was guaranteed an intense workout but they felt so accomplishing afterwards. I certainly lost a lot of body fat and toned up really well. If your looking for a group fitness class or personal training I would highly recommend them! More...
Very knowledgeable and positive!
If you looking for swings and a space to work with your team Pryde Athletics is a great place!
Ivan and his staff are phenomenal. The workouts are creative and fun. Individual help even in a group setting. Great experience and positive environment.

Great place to train, environment is friendly, cleaner than most gyms I've been to. Staff is very knowledgeable, I am glad I found this place, was actually recommended by Barrett!
Ivan and his staff are knowledgeable, and they clearly care a great deal about each individual that they work with
Clayton N Jody Nissan
Super friendly and push you do be your best. Really like that they worked with my daughter to set "her" goals, not theirs. Then laid out a clear plan to reach those goals. Excellent place to train! More...
Great staff! The workouts are designed for all fitness levels & ages. My son runs track & plays football & has really improved with the staff at Pryde from speed & agility classes to personal training sessions. Ivan & Eros also helped him strengthen his knee after an injury last season gettin him back to 100%. Try the bootcamps they are tough but you get results! More...
This is the BEST 2 hour workout I've ever had! Thanks Barrette
A true ass kicking is what you get here...and you pay for it but I love it and keep coming back for more! Eros, Chris and Ivan are all amazing at what they do. You will never have the same workout twice...so you can't get bored! They push you and motivate you to keep going! The best part about these workouts is they are for everyone! I have seen all ages and sizes, it doesn't matter anyone can do it! If you live in the Belleville area you should consider a new workout, way better than a gym running on a treadmill! More...
Great location, plenty of parking, very attentive and well trained staff, clean, safe and no judgement facility! Great for all ages, classes available for everyone's schedules and strength levels! Great addition to our community!
