    This must be a new record for a pro track athlete switching up coaches so many times in 3-4 years.

    Stu McMillan managed his transition from college well (coaching changes and the move from college to pro life is not easy). This move to Rana Reider will probably be successful by Tokyo (i.e. medal in one of the sprint events). Not sure I understand the comparison. To my knowledge Webb left college after one year and never had any international success (no medals at Olympics or Worlds).

    Losing 2 years to hamstrings injuries shouldn’t happen when you have Performance Therapy.

    Huge loss for Altis in their attempt to get some credibility and become relevant. Have they lost Sabrina Nettey as well?

    It's been a revolving door for the group for years and now their business model seems to be more about making $$$ by offering coaches training programs

    Now I see they have added middle distance to their stable of events.

    It would be nice to see them get it together ,their facility and location is primo.

    They don’t make significant money from the athletes, they make it on other contracts and education programs. ALTIS charges a flat rate, other professional coaches charge a percentage of their endorsements and appearance fees. Andre saved a lot of money going to ALTIS, 10% of 11 million is a lot of money. BTW Sabrina Nettey was never with ALTIS, Her sister is however.

    I think the point being made was is Altis even relevant not fees charged athletes. Sorry I think most coaches want $$ on a per month basis not on a performance basis. Ask our athletes how much they make per year. 10% of nothing is nothing.

    I looked at their athlete pool and only a couple names are vaguely recognizable and one is because she's a canuck.

    Is Christabel Nettey there? She's not listed, I think she left after the track season.

    Interesting website. When did training groups start having a CEO, President and 3 VP's?? It's in the "business" of selling memberships to athletes and coaching training. If you have the cash and meet their performance standard they will take you on. Maybe I am wrong but that's how he website portrays them

    Hey if it works for the athlete I'm all for it. Show me the money $$$$$

    It seems they haven't been keeping up with their website. Christabel was with Altis then left to Jeremy Fischer when Dan Pfaff stopped coaching day to day, she didn't like it and came back and has been back since at least the Fall of 2017.

    I don't know their whole roster, but some of their athletes:
    Fred Kerley 400m
    Paul Dedewo 400m
    Aries Merritt 110H
    Ameer Webb 200m
    CJ Ujah 100m

    If those names are 'vaguely recognizable' to you, you don't follow the sport enough for your opinions to be interesting.

    In my opinion, ALTIS is trying their best to improve Athletics. With the plethora of training courses and material they offer, it is a very good source for coaches of all levels. The folks that work there have a lot of knowledge and are extremely approachable. I have on numerous occasions reached out to them and received well reasoned responses. Athletes come and go. Andre is at a key point in his career and probably the need to move. PUMA could be putting pressure on him.

    I thought it was $15,000/year to train there.

    Is Stuart McMillan actually a registered physiotherapist? He calls himself a “Performance Therapist” on his Linkedin profile.

    We had a former collegiate athlete enquire a few years ago and it was approximately the amount you stated plus living expenses.

    For a fringe athlete who wants to give it a go as pro or extend their post collegiate career it’s an excellent program versus training on your own at home. It all boils down to $$$

    They also offer 'scholarships' to promising athletes, where some of the expenses are paid and they may get less services but they also do some charity work and that kind of thing.

    Rana Reider, I believe, is an "Addidas Coach" but coaches Nike athletes
