Frank “Jay” Schroeder
Jay Schroeder has given birth to, and nurtured, this training system for more than 30 years. Jay develops, perfects, and implements highly sophisticated and very unique training protocols which are used with any type of athlete and/or individual seeking to maximize on his/her quality of life. Jay now travels the world exposing individuals and/or training athletes of all ages and sport classifications in the hopes of allowing humans to reach new levels of performance standards, once only dreamed of, while staying injury resistant and extending athletic careers far past what has been the norm. The top training systems in the history of athletics and typical training genres have been studied and gleaned from in order to create this elite training system. Extensive research/studies have been analyzed and tested thus, “no stone has been left uncovered”. Amazing results have occurred and have been applied to any individual interested in working hard and developing a lifestyle conducive to the extension of a quality life.
Jay, himself, used the training system to overcome many physical problems stemming from a severe motorcycle accident in which he sustained a broken neck and back. The physicians gave up on Jay stating that he would never walk again. Jay persevered, studied and trained himself to a full recovery; thus, his passion was born to train human beings to reach their full life potential. His degree is in Kinesiology/P.E., in addition, he constantly researches sport science theory and training, including traveling to the eastern block countries to apply their training theories. Jay’s career has included performing all third level physical therapy programs within two different hospital settings while coordinating their health and wellness centers. The Evolutionary Training System tailors the training to the individual and his/her needs. Many of the techniques have been featured on ESPN, Fox Sports, and the “Early Show” with Bryant Gumbel. The EVO System is different and few understand how or why it works BUT it has been extremely effective in the development of elite athletes and in allowing individuals to continue living a highly productive life. Jay has since become a drug free, world champion powerlifter, elite sprinter, and track cyclist. Jay divides his time between Arizona and Minnesota.
The EVO System
This system and its methodologies have been developed, researched and refined for more than 40 years. Evolutionary training is a system of high intensity to supra-intensity (high-speed, high load, high volume) training routines which target specific physiological traits; those associated with efficient athletic and/or human performance. These training routines are arranged according to their importance for the specific individual being trained. Once entering the EVO System, the athlete/client proceeds in a specific order through each of these traits as his or her physiology indicates. It is the only system that utilizes this specific method of progression. The motto, “The will to prepare for results is more important than the will for results” becomes clear as you progress through the system. As the athlete/client becomes more advanced, the individual traits can be broken down again into specific physiological sub-traits. EVO Training elicits only the response of the specific trait being trained; nothing else is affected. The training completely eliminates the usual symptoms of overtraining, and can become, depending on the level of the individual, specific to the very goals desired by each client without interruption of everyday life performance or of the necessary athletic skills required by athletes. Performance of the athlete/client is always at a very high level and, upon initiation of the training system, each of these physiological traits can be developed to elicit supercompensatory results. Not just one level of supercompensation but multiple levels! Built into the system are the strategies necessary to maintain specific traits for extended periods of time so that other supercompensation levels may be heightened.
The following list gives you some of the important qualities, training techniques, and target areas of this system. The EVO System is highly adaptive. The system works with all ages and meets all the requirements for extending life and performance. Isn’t that what life is all about …trying to move as efficiently as possible throughout our life while keeping ourselves physiologically productive at high levels? As we move through life, the EVO System prepares us to take each life step regardless of age, sport, or activity level. The EVO System is designed in such a manner as the athlete/client becomes more injury resistant.
These are the physical traits, and training aspects necessary to compete as an athlete and/or for the individual striving for life extension of high quality:
- Balance, coordination – the contraction and relaxation of specific muscles, and/or muscle groups
- Nervous system development
- Connective tissue strength
- Usable strength development
- Muscle group involvement in the proportionate production of strength and size; the ancillary muscle groups “turn on” at the same proportionate rate as the primary movers.
This greatly reduces the chance of injury during the performance of a sport skill and everyday activities. The system reduces the number of exercises that an individual must master in order to enhance their sport skill(s) and/or improve the quality of life.
Interestingly, all individuals should strive to achieve this elite level of physiological development, as it defines maximal health. The EVO System has been highly successful for athletes/clients ranging in age from 4 years to 81 years of age. Evolutionary training creates healthy functioning human beings that are prepared to take on the rigors of everyday life plus any athletic activity. It has produced positive results for those who wish to lose fat; it has increased a resistance to arthritis, and tendonitis; it has increased muscle mass; it has developed and enhanced maximal velocity and velocity endurance. More importantly, male and female participants have experienced the same results.
