Anthony Trucks, B.S., C.S.C.S. Owner, Founder, Director
of Trucks Training Inc. graduated from Antioch High
School in 2002 where he started his career in sports.
Anthony endured a lot at a young age and made it his
life’s goal to overcome obstacles that others would say
he was incapable of. Even in high school he took the extra time to train on
his own to achieve his highest possible physical level. Anthony’s hard work
paid off and he earned a football scholarship to the University of Oregon.
In his time there, he decided that whatever his future was, he wanted it to
include a future in training other individuals to reach their highest level of
physical goals attainable. For this reason, he decided to work towards a
Bachelors of Science with focuses in Human Anatomy, Biology, and Human
During his time at Oregon, he made sure to pay close attention to the training
he was doing and especially “why” he was performing the specific exercises
and programs. By doing this, he was able to get better every year
and perform better on the field. He started as an outside linebacker his true
sophomore year and played well. His senior year he led the Pacific 10 Conference
in sacks, tackles for loss, forced fumbles, fumbles recovered, and
was 5th in total tackles. He was also the Co-Defensive MVP of the 2005
Pacific Life Holiday Bowl even though his team lost.
He participated in the 2006 NFL Combine and was signed by the Tampa
Bay Buccaneers as a free agent in March of 2006. He has played with the
Washington Redskins and the Pittsburgh Steelers since. He then suffered a
season-ending left shoulder injury in the first pre-season game of the 2008
NFL season. Throughout his entire college and NFL career, Anthony collected
invaluable information on ways to make himself better, which he translates
into making others better! When his NFL playing days came to a close, his
goal was to make others better than he ever was.
Anthony has been progressing towards building his career post football
since he started college. He has since achieved a personal training certification
from the National Council on Strength and Fitness, as well as his certification
as an NSCA-Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. Anthony’s
main goal is to lose the stereotypical label of athletes turned coaches being
poor coaches. For that reason, Anthony spends countless hour LEARNING
and mastering his craft so that he could harbor as much knowledge as others
in the industry, while still having been blessed enough to play his sport
at the highest level in the world. So Anthony’s clients can trust they are getting
the same quality training as the professionals they admire. Anthony can
