Character. Health. Athletic Performance.


Live fit, live free!


To be the preeminent sports & fitness organization in the world.


Created for the athlete, but good for all!

The Desmond Pugh Sports Academy is a sports & fitness organization that believes Character, Health, and Athletic Performance are the key ingredients to maximizing health and optimizing success on the playing fields. Our primary goal is to prepare student-athletes for the bright lights of sports and life. Our secondary goal is to inspire families to live fitness together.

Furthermore, we are a health organization that endeavors to see a world without chronic disease. Using the framework of sports, we seek to address the obesity crisis that plagues the world, as well as, other health concerns that are attributed to physical inactivity. It is also our goal to address non-disease, lifestyle specific conditions that contribute to poor health.

The key to our success is in program design. Optimizing athletic performance has been our number one priority since the inception of our organization. However, we believe that training athletes is our responsibility.

“We all have our own life to pursue, our own kind of dream to be weaving, and we all have the power to make wishes come true, as long as we keep believing.”

Louisa May Alcott

We are looking for sport and strength coaches, personal trainers, and sport administrators to join our team.
