Daniel Jahn, CSCS, USAW, NASM-PES is a sports performance specialist at Volt Athletics and owner and Director of Training and Education of Maximum Sports Conditioning. He has been in and around sports training for 19 years – as a baseball athlete at the University of Washington from 1997 to 2000, and later as a coach. When a back injury ended his career in 2000, he was hired as an assistant baseball coach at UW, and an internship in the Husky weight room turned into a part-time strength coach position the following year. In 2002, he became a full-time coach in charge of Baseball, Softball, Swimming, and Volleyball, but he also worked extensively with Football, and helped with Basketball, Track and Soccer.
Along with training thousands of collegiate athletes and the 2005 NCAA National Championship UW Volleyball team, he has trained professionals of all backgrounds – ranging from Mixed Martial Arts to Olympic Snowboarding. He has held numerous clinics and seminars for youth of all sports, performed instructional training seminars for personal trainers, organized and facilitated strength and conditioning coaches’ clinics, was a guest lecturer at the University of Washington Student Athlete Academic Services Center and UW-Bothell, organized and facilitated summer baseball camps for kids, and was a part-time columnist for STACK magazine (articles written appear in April 05, Oct. 05, Nov. 05, Feb. 06 issues). In 2006-2007, he was Director of Training and Education at Endzone Athletics, where he established and operated programs for high school athletes. Among his many articles, he authored ‘College Preparation: Manual for Athletic Success', a workbook designed to prepare athletes for collegiate athletics.
In addition to his training, Daniel is also active in the community. He serves on the boards for the Austin Foundation and Athletes Beyond Borders, mentors in the Bellevue Groundbreakers program, and in 2009 he received the Inspire the Future Award from the Seattle Mariners and Fidelity Investments for his work with inner-city baseball teams, players and coaches. In 2010-2011, he also created a fundraiser for the Austin Foundation called the Washington's Strongest School Competition.
