The owner of Attack Athletics is Tim Grover who happens to train alot of the NBA stars. He has helped the likes of Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, Dwayne Wade and others. Tim believes he can help Manny Pacquiao. He is quoted as saying, "I have some ideas on how I might be able to help Manny,” he said. “If Manny wants, I could go through (trainer) Freddie (Roach) or (strength and conditioning trainer) Alex (Ariza), or both."
“My intention is not to interfere with any conditioning program Manny is now doing. I’m not looking to displace anyone. I’m not after a ringside seat or a place in Manny’s corner. All I want to do is to enhance Manny’s performance by working within his system,” he explained. Doesn't this seem alot like what Conditioning Coach Alex Ariza was saying? It seems like if you have strength and conditioning it can give you the upper hand. Alex Ariza was upset that Manny kinda gave up on training with him and opting to do more sparring, mitts, and punching bad drills.
Let me explain something to the thousands of fans out there. Once you get to a certain level, you know what combinations to throw, you know how to hit mitts, you know how to move around the ring. All this most boxers have done growing up. What needs to be expanded upon is your training your body and pushing it to the limits to see what you can get out of it. Apparently is has worked for Juan Marquez. He looked explosive and strong without the use of PEDs.
Grover’s top client, Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant, is aware that he has reached out to Pacquiao.
“Kobe’s a huge Manny fan and I wouldn’t be reaching out to Manny if Kobe didn’t know it.... I’m reaching out to only Manny, nobody else, because like Kobe, I want Manny to come back and be successful,” Grover said.
