Wisconsin Sports Performance, a personal training studio with classes, has opened at N85 W15786 Appleton Ave., Menomonee Falls.

Bringing a wealth of sports experience, Stephen Linzmeier has opened his own training facility in Menomonee Falls.

Linzmeier was assistant strength coach for the Butler University men's basketball team, which finished runner-up in the 2012 NCAA D-1 championship. He was also the assistant strength and conditioning coach at the University of Indianapolis, head strength and conditioning coach at Lincoln Memorial University and head strength coach at Brookfield East High School.

Linzmeier opened Wisconsin Sports Performance, N85 W15786 Appleton Ave., in December. The facility is designed to train youth and college-age athletes, and has classes geared toward adults.

Its 2,100-square-foot space is equipped with green turf, fitness equipment and free weights, Linzmeier said.

"For me, it is helping (athletes) get to their highest level. When you help do that, they have more self-confidence," he said. His philosophy is "making a positive impact in lives through strength and conditioning."

He said he chose to open a facility in Menomonee Falls because there is not a sports training facility in Menomonee Falls or the northwest area of Milwaukee.

Linzmeier said, so far, he is training high school athletes on an area track and football team and also has one-on-one clients.

"I worked with middle school, high school and college athletes ... I can work with any population," he said.

He said he also offers an adult training class that has a "fun atmosphere for adults."

Wisconsin Sports Performance is open during the day by appointment with guided group training, athletic performance and adult training in the afternoons and evenings. It is planning a ribbon-cutting ceremony for 1:30 to 3 p.m. Feb. 3 at the Appleton Avenue location. Learn more at wisconsinsportsperformance.com or call 414-409-8707.
