Athlete of the Week

Ryan Dritschel – Westwood H.S.

Ryan Dritschel is SCI's Athlete of the Week after an outstanding junior cross country season in which he set personal bests on all the local courses. His best race came at the State Sectional meet when he ran 17:36 on the challenging Garret Mountain course and helped lead Westwood to a birth at the State Group Championship at Holmdel Park. His great XC season should set him up to run big PR's this spring! In the winter he'll play basketball and is likely to have a huge season with his improved vertical and speed and quickness. 


Ryan has been training at SCI for about half a year. He works with Coach Vaccaro and Coach Murphy on his overall speed and strength and running form.

Featured Testimonial

"I've known Brad Vaccaro for over 10 years going back to when I was a starting left tackle in the NFL. In the spring of 2002 I was without a team and Brad helped me train for a workout with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which I ended up signing with them and would go on to help them win Super Bowl XXXVII. Now as the owner of the Sports Conditioning Institute, he and his staff continues to train and educate athletes of all ages and ability; more importantly, they bring a wealth of knowledge to not only help athletes get better, faster, stronger, and healthier, but to avoid injury. The S.C.I. and Ultimate Football staff have helped me grow my Roman Soldier's Showcase event by running the warm-up and speed development portion. I thank Brad for his continued great work.."

Nulla's Corner

Nulla has been a trainer at SCI for about a year and has established herself as the best trainer in all New Jersey. She has a tremendous work ethic, sometimes working 10-12 hour days, and is also an extremely quick learner. So far her only flaw is that she sometimes abandons clients in the middle of a session to take a nap in the corner of the gym. Nulla invites you to stop by S.C.I. any time! The first session is always FREE but after that she will be charging $10,000/hour. Toys are expensive.
