About Danny Copeland

My name is Danny Copeland. I am the founder and president of COGI Athletic Company, the creator of the Champion's Certification, and a Super Bowl XXVI Champion. I started my training career as a client of the Egoscue Therapy, Health, Education Clinic, learning to combat chronic pain through exercise. Later, I became a certified fitness trainer through the National Strength Professionals Association (NSPA). I melded what I considered the best therapy principles and cutting-edge training applications based on my varied experiences. Eventually, I became a sought-after presenter for speed and athletic development clinics. In 2007, I began researching popular programs and educating other trainers on how to incorporate safety and rehab principles into training for specific populations. In 2008, I developed the first training manual for COGI Athletic trainers. By 2013, my training team and I  had assisted athletes in earning scholarships to over 60 colleges and universities.

My former student-athletes are currently NFL, NBA, and MLB draft choices. We have won multiple NCAA national championships in baseball, football, softball, and equestrian riding. We have won individual national championships, PGA tour events, major equestrian events, high school soccer, tennis, swimming, kayaking, cross country, and track state championships.

Many of our certified trainers have gone on to become Master's and Ph.D. holders, physical therapists, and Division 1 college strength coaches. Student trainees are now physicians, psychologists, physical therapists, and state champion coaches.

As the creator of the Champions Certifications, my mission is to help develop more champion trainers: professionals with the knowledge, wisdom, and discipline necessary to produce more CHAMPIONS.
