I worked with Kamau directly for 3 years while competing as an athlete in high-school, the CJFL and USports. The time I spent under his mentorship not only improved my speed, power and relative strength but reverse engineered the way I move,
a signature of time spent with KP. Kamau’s rich background in athletics paired with a student's mindset to improve performance allows him to effectively help athletes bridge the gap between their location and their destination.
From high school to the CJFL, CJFL to U-Sports and U-Sports to the CFL, Kamau’s teachings on movement, training philosophy, and Football IQ have successfully prepared me and many like myself for the next step in my athletic endeavors.
KP’s work speaks for itself. He has a clear passion for seeing athletes reach their potential and he exhausts every necessary avenue to see it through. As an athlete, regardless of your current needs, Kamau has what it takes to get you there. His experience and drive to provide for his people is uncanny. I now serve as a Collegiate Strength & Conditioning Coach and continue to draw from my experiences with KP in my youth. The mentorship he provides in his services is invaluable and KP is highly regarded in every community he’s been a part of. Many athletes, including myself have been positively impacted as a by-product of his mentorship. KP is a role model, performance specialist, sport technician and mentor all in one.

I had the privilege to train with Kamau or KP as I call him. He is currently training me as I am getting ready to play my first season in the CFL. I have to credit KP for helping me be where I am today with the opportunity to play professional sports. This man has taught me a lot of life lessons. I was challenged every day to be a better athlete than I was the day before. It is incredible to see that Kp was there to help me grow as an athlete and person. The attention to detail and the level of care he offered me help me overcome my everyday challenges during my workouts. The amazing thing about working with KP is that he took the time to explain the reason behind each thought and exercise and how beneficial it would be in the long term. I felt like it was always enjoyable working with Kp even though every workout was challenging. It assures working out with someone who knows his crafts and has been in my position once before.
If you are looking to be challenged every day to see your true self, you are at the right place.

Sending our players from our program to speed train with Kamau Peterson during the summer of 2020 was the best decision. Our players involved in the program arrived at our fall season, having achieved their personal best times ever. Kamau’s knowledge, attention to detail, and ability to communicate with our athletes were exceptional. Our players can’t wait to work with Kamau again this summer!

Working with KP has been, nothing but Insightful I started working with him since I came to York University. We continued to work with him in the offseason and my combined training as well. When I arrived to York I came to him with goals of play pro football whether it is the CFL or NFL, right off the bat he said it be a lot of work and dedication. He took my words and held me accountable, he has continuously found new ways to help me evolve whether it’s skills that need refining or creative drills that get me thinking but are also fun at the same time this experience has been a journey filled with a lot of hard work, it’s been nothing but enjoyable. I’m forever learning something new, one thing I can say training with home is one of the best decisions I have made in my life, I would make that decision 10/10 because the amount of things he has taught me not only just about football, but about life and it’s lessons that make you become a better man so training with him you get more than just a coach you get somebody who’s part of your family.

Up until two years ago I was training with different athletic coaches every year under several different programs. Each year I would experience injuries as a result from imbalances that developed from my training program. Three years ago is where my athletic career changed, I began training under Kamau’s tutelage not only to craft my skills but to become a complete athlete. Coach Kamau knowledge suppressed any other training program I've done. It was clear that Coach Kamau understands each athletes’ strengths and weaknesses, he differentiates our programs to be personalized to help just develop in the areas we need. His approach to training athletes has far surpassed anything I have experienced through the ways he delivers information. Every movement we do always has a tailored specification and explanation, so you never have to guess or interrupt its purpose.
Since training With Coach Kamau my speed, strength and mental focus have all evolved far past my previous state. My workout program, speed and skill sessions are built in a way that continually challenges me to chase greatness. Training with Coach Kamau is not for everyone, if you have a dream to achieve greatness in your athletic field, he is the man to seek out.

Training with Kamau Peterson was foundational to my athletic development as I transitioned from high school football to competing at the USports level. KP opened my perspective up to focusing on weaknesses in my overall athleticism and building up the core of what I was capable of to build a more well-rounded athlete. Whether it was on-field, in the gym, or in the film room, there are few coaches in Canada that I think are as well-rounded as KP. To be quite honest, I would not have had the athletic success that I did without his guidance.
On top of what he did for me as an athlete, training with KP made me a better person, which will serve me for much longer than any element of athletics will. He challenged my assumptions about the world and taught me a lot about what it takes to care for the people around you, whether they are athletes, friends, colleagues, or rivals. He treated me with a level of respect that was far more than generous for an 18 year old kid who was making mistakes while growing up. I'm grateful for the work we put in together, and I'm grateful that I can call Kamau Peterson a friend.

At the beginning of the pandemic I had few options on how I was going to be able to train for football moving forward. With no where to go Coach Kamau Peterson provided me an opportunity to continue to sharpen my skills and grow as a football player. However, in my time with coach KP I was not only able to get lessons in football but Lessons in life. I appreciate being able to work with him and get the opportunity to sharpen my body and my mind. The one thing I began to learn with KP was there was no question I couldn’t ask. His perspective allowed me to grow as an individual on and off the field. I credit KP with the challenges he brings everyday and how there is always a way to overcome those challenges. I am also thankful with the group of people Am surrounded with and the level of competition that we have everyday. The amazing thing about training with coach KP is the investment in us as men and football players. Nobody else I know brings in the tools to be able to track our progress and give us real data on how we are getting better and break down our strength and weaknesses. Even though I haven’t played in over a year I know working with him has gave me confidence and readiness to dominate on the field once I get back. If you are an athlete looking to challenge yourself in every type of way and find out true potential in this game then this is where you should look.

Kamau has been a huge part of my success on the field. He has given me a tool belt of techniques to work with, that I use on a daily basis. One of the biggest things that separates KP from other trainers is his knowledge and experience of the game. His ability to teach technique to athletes with different levels of experience is very unique. One thing he told me that has stuck with me to this day, is "You've gotta train for the job you want, not the job you have."

I've had the pleasure of learning the game of football as well as speed mechanics under KP for the last 5 years. One thing I can say, is that my growth as a student of the game as well as my physical attributes enhanced significantly compared to any other form of training I've had. Movement and sport specific drills are something he does exceptionally well. His experience and track record as an athlete and trainer speaks for itself.
York University - REC
During my time Training with Kamau, I really learned about the process needed to get to the next level. Whether it is high school, University or the CFL. The knowledge that KP gained from years in the sport is evident in the programs he prepares, the feedback given and most importantly required mindset needed. There is no doubt, that you will leave Athletic paradigm a better athlete and person.
