My name is Toby Martin, with shoes on, I may stand at 5’3”. From a young age, I knew I was always going to be the smallest player on the floor. I remember my dad telling me that because of this, I had to be the best ball handler, shooter, and smartest player. This has always stuck with me and because of this I relentlessly worked on my game, on the court and in the weight room.
I went to Maranacook High School in Readfield Maine, where I played three varsity sports and truly value the experience of playing three sports and encourage other athletes to do the same. I earned a division II scholarship to play basketball at Franklin Pierce and competed in the national championship my senior year. I continued my basketball career professionally in Germany for three years. I have spent the last five years coaching at the college level; two at the University of Southern Maine and the last three at Bowdoin College. It was through coaching at the college level, that I realized my passion is with small groups and individuals. I love putting together programs with my clients based on their goals and needs. The relationship built through these workouts is extremely rewarding.
As the director of Basketball Performance at PRIME360, this part of business exists for 2 reasons:
1) To show the value of our sports specific training in the studio and how relates to the athlete’s performance and success on the court.
2) To instill confidence in each athlete. I am not able to GIVE you the confidence you need, but I am CONFIDENT that through these training sessions you will practice and learn the tools needed to instill confidence in YOURSELF! It is amazing what can be accomplished through hard work, commitment, HEART, and a little fun :)!
