LW to Revamp Weight Room, Hire Weight Coach

Ryan Miller | Tuesday, April 17, 2018
Rocky River, OH, April 2018: The Lutheran West Athletic Department is committed to the growth and success of its athletes and firmly believes Strength and Conditioning is at the core of that focus. The Athletic Department is excited to announce two initiatives that will revamp the Strength and Conditioning program. The Longhorns have hired Dave Krieger as Strength and Conditioning coach while committing to a full renovation of the Senney Fitness and Training Center. 

Dave Krieger is a 2008 graduate of Lutheran West and a 2014 graduate of John Carroll University, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Exercise Science. Krieger develops highly-customized training plans for both individuals and teams, focusing on sport-specific exercise benefits and individual/team goals. He has trained athletes with Game Speed Performance Academy, Training Camp for Life with Steve Sanders, as well as built his own training business, Overtime Sports LLC. Coach Krieger has also been a member of the Lutheran West football coaching staff since 2014. Krieger holds NSCA-CPT and CSCS certifications. 

"I would like to thank the Lutheran West Operating Board, Mr. Waugh, and Mr. Miller for the opportunity and confidence to lead Lutheran West's Strength and Conditioning Program," said Dave Krieger (LW Class of 2008) when he was hired on Thursday. "As a Lutheran West alumnus and former student-athlete, it has been a dream of mine to contribute to furthering the success of our athletic programs. I am very excited for this opportunity to contribute my knowledge and experience to the the success of all our student-athletes in developing a complete Strength and Conditioning program tailored to the needs of our kids. I can't wait to get started! Time to get to work, Go Longhorns!"
Lutheran West will begin construction on a complete weight room renovation in the next month, with a project completion target of early June. The weight room upgrade will include new rubber flooring, a 12-foot by 100-foot turf surface, six new half racks, all new barbells, rubber encased plates, new benches, speed sleds, new rubber-encased dumbbells and racks, as well as several other auxiliary equipment pieces. 

"The addition of Dave Krieger as our Strength and Conditioning Coach is a crucial step we've taken as an athletic department as we seek to achieve our athletic goals," said Lutheran West Athletic Director Ryan Miller. "We will continue to synergize our Strength and Conditioning Program under Coach Kreiger's leadership and I am confident with his knowledge and trust he has already earned from our student-athletes we will continue to take big strides in our overall strength, competitiveness, and athleticism. Not only did we add a quality asset in Coach Krieger, but we are also looking forward to offering an essentially brand new training facility for our student-athletes across all sports. The new Senney Fitness & Training Center will surely be integral in the continued development of our student-athlete culture and success. Special thanks to the Lutheran West leadership for their support, as well as the Equipment Guys for their impeccable customer service" 
The Equipment Guys will be installing the new weight room in the coming month. For more information on The Equipment Guys click here. For any questions please contact Athletic Director Ryan Miller at
