Lance Rhodes - BS, CSCS
God created the human body with a tremendous ability to adapt. As a high-school athlete desiring to get faster, quicker and more explosive, a passion sparked in me to learn and educate myself on the ability of the human body to respond to stress, especially within the context of human performance.
As I progressed into college academia and athletics, my physical skills became secondary to my desire to understand how the human organism through training stresses altered itself to better respond to the affecting stressor. While at UAB, one of my Professors, Dr. Gary Hunter (UAB -Distinguished Professor in Exercise Science), encouraged further reading in weightlifting mechanics, power output, sports physiology and testing. After graduating in 2006, I began to take my education in Exercise Science and apply my understanding on how the Human Body adapts to training. Starting in my parents basement working with high school athletes in 2006, the dream of Godspeed began. From 2006 to 2014 what began as a dream in my parents basement, starting as Lance Rhodes Performance Methods, Inc. (RPM, Inc.) moved from a 800 sq. ft. rental space, 4,000 sq.ft space and two renovations to what is now known as Godspeed. In April of 2014, Godspeed opened their first campus with two training floors and an artificial turf field. From 2014 – 2020 Godspeed would continue to expand and serve more adults, athletes and teams. February 2020, Godspeed Jones Valley would open in Huntsville, Alabama as Godspeed’s 2nd campus. Following the continued growth of a second campus, Godspeed would expand our services into Physical Therapy starting in 2021 across all locations. Godspeed continues to be the leader in health and performance across adult fitness, athlete performance, team athlete performance and sports physical therapy.

FAVORITE QUOTE/VERSE “‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future. ‘” – Jeremiah 29:11 WHY COACHING? There is nothing more rewarding than having a career where I am able to play a role in serving and helping others through incredibly difficult times when injured, to ultimately allow one to get back to the sport or activity they love.

WHY COACHING? Growing up I was blessed with amazing parents who doubled as my coaches. I saw the impact they made on their community and the influence they had on their athletes both in sports and as individuals. I didn’t know my path would take me down a similar road as them until I got to college. I didn’t have a strength coach at my school, but my favorite part of athletics was the time spent in the weight room. My freshman year I was hospitalized with a head injury and through the recovery process I found the most relief from pain when lifting weights. My “why” stems from a combination of my own journey and the influence of my parents’ careers before me – my hope is that every time I coach, my athletes see the passion I have for training and notice the difference in their game performance. I believe in athletes becoming lifelong learners of training and when they eventually stop competing in sports they will know how to improve their health and performance based on the teaching they received from me.

WHY COACHING? Some of the most influential people in my life have been my former coaches. They help to not only shape you physically, but the personal growth and development that happens when training is truly what it’s all about. I have learned so many valuable life lessons through my own athletic experiences that I only hope to share some of those lessons with the clientele I help through my coaching. I want to help others see their potential they didn’t even know they had.
