Pat founded Ianni Training after a playing career that spanned 9 years in MLS, the Olympics in Bejing, and being an All-American at UCLA. All of this experience taught him that what is needed in the world of sports is a commitment to training the whole athlete: mind, body, and spirit. Patrick now brings this immense experience coupled with his story of personal transformation to the field every time he works with players from all walks of life.
