My name is Phil Squatrito, also known as Coach Squats. I am the Head Coach and owner of Training For Warriors, Ponte Vedra Beach and Girlpower Flag Football. I have over 22 years of experience in fitness, training and health since I graduated from William Paterson University with a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology. I have been blessed to coach tens of thousands of children, adults, and athletes of every age. The passion for fitness I have helps drive and motivate me to bring out the best in others. I believe that our physical and mental health are the most important attributes we possess. They should be taken care of and protected at an early age so we can be the very best versions of ourselves in adulthood. My biggest mission is to help empower our kids with an enthusiastic approach and to teach them the importance of exercise, training, proper nutrition, sleep and hydration. This will lead them on the path of great health, teach them discipline, give them confidence, and set them up with a great foundation of healthy habits as they all move forward in life. I am married and have 4 children, three amazing young daughters 12, 9, 7 and an incredible son age 4. Together we all fight the good fight of fitness and health. It’s not an easy one all of the time, but anything easy simply isn’t worth doing.

I BELIEVE that with the right coaching, culture, community, and training environment it’s impossible not to see extraordinary change and results. “It’s bigger than me, it’s bigger than you, but it ain’t bigger than US.” Together we can achieve so much more!
I BELIEVE now more than ever the world and our children need more great coaches; leaders that can help bring out the best in people to ignite change from the inside out. Through positive encouragement, enthusiasm, and passion for helping others, there are few obstacles too great to overcome.
I BELIEVE that strength, conditioning, and fitness is for EVERY age, EVERY level and EVERY ability. It’s never too late to start your journey towards a stronger, healthier version of you!
I have a passion for fitness and tend to get people a little bit excited about training and eating broccoli. Bringing out the best in people through positive encouragement and enthusiasm are some of my greatest strengths. I’ve always felt that building strength improves mental fortitude, a stronger body and a stronger mind leads to a stronger spirit. Life is full of challenges and in order to overcome many of them we need to arm ourselves with the proper tools of physical and mental strength, which improves through training. If you make time for your fitness, you will have more energy and time for everyone and everything else in your life.
