Become A
Utility Player

In athletics, utility players are able to play multiple positions competently, excelling despite challenges by using their versatility to their advantage. As players have become more and more specialized, strong utility players, with their diverse strengths, have become extremely valuable. The same is true off the field.

Let me show you how to become a utility player in your own life and leverage your experience as an athlete to help you grow in your career!

I’ve had the pleasure of sitting on a few panels alongside Marti Reed and I’ve seen first-hand what her passion and energy brings to an audience. She has a unique ability to connect with people, motivate them and empower them to reach their full potential.
— Christine Simmons, COO of the LA Sparks

Train With Marti

As an athlete you’ve worked on your strength, flexibility, stamina and sportsmanship. Our workouts are similar, but our approach off the field training focuses on transferable life skills.

Utility Training Workouts

Designed to build:
➢ Strength of Character
➢ Flexibility in Opportunity
➢ Stamina in Creating Habits
➢ Sportsmanship in Life

To be at the top of your game in life, you must dedicate yourself to daily exercises that will build a positive mindset, develop your network, and give back to your community.




1:1 Utility Training

Private Utility Coaching sessions focus on where you can grow in your life. Just like one-on-one coaching on the field, the personal attention of a private coach helps accelerate growth immensely.

We'll meet regularly either in-person or over the phone to check in on progress, address hurdles, and celebrate victories. Coaching is a minimum 3 month engagement.

Team Training Sessions

I can work with your whole team to explore all of life’s positions, showing how to maximize each of those roles. Together, we design a Utility Training program to help the team excel both on and off the field.

Working closely with your training staff, we can customize the session based on your team’s specific needs. Sessions can be held one-time, or over a series of weeks.
