Plug Into the Most Powerful Volleyball Network on the planet
A Virtual Training Community for Indoor and Beach Volleyball Players Who Want Performance Gains at Their Fingertips
SERVING UP BIG GOALS? WE DIG IT!
WE KNOW YOU’D DO ANYTHING
TO IMPROVE YOUR GAME.
Especially when you’re hitting performance plateaus or underperforming. Or maybe you’re holding back due to pain, or fear of triggering an old injury.
It’s frustrating, eating away at your motivation, and has you worried you’ll be getting benched and overlooked by coaches and scouts.
You know you’re capable of so much more, but feel confused about what’s the right way to bring out all that untapped potential. There is a lot of conflicting information and most of the advice isn’t even volleyball-specific!
You want to feel confident that if you decide to invest your time and energy into a program, it will actually get you the results you’re after. And that you’ll get the support and guidance along the way from someone who truly knows the sport of volleyball, and have been where you want to go.
We've Been There...
And we get it. Only a true athlete can understand what an athlete needs and Bulletproof Performance was created for athletes – by athletes. We know what it’s like to be benched, hurt or feeling like you are underperforming.
We’ve learned from our mistakes so you don’t have to.

THE BULLETPROOF ACADEMY
BUT DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT...
HERE'S WHAT SOME OF THE BEST PLAYERS IN THE WORLD HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE BULLETPROOF ACADEMY:
HI! I’M ANJA BORSHEIM
the founder of Bulletproof Performance
I fell in love with volleyball at a very young age. At 15 I moved away from home to attend a national volleyball academy. I was a young, aspiring athlete, willing to do anything to get better and reach my goals. However, the academy was new and located deep inside one of the Norwegian fjords. This meant our access to proper strength & conditioning coaches and physiotherapists was limited. So although I eventually managed to reach my volleyball goals, that lack of support and guidance also meant I worked myself into a lot of trouble, unnecessary injuries, and detours along the way…
Now, after more than a decade working as both a physiotherapist and sports performance coach, I created Bulletproof Performance because I wanted to develop something that could be the support, structure, and guidance I wish my 15-year old self would have had access to back then. A program, a system, and a community that could help give players the performance gains they so desperately want, in the fastest and most efficient way, but at the same time help them steer clear of injuries and setbacks.
Bulletproof Performance was designed to give volleyball players like you anywhere in the world, access to elite-level training and knowledge. A place where you’ll find all the resources, inspiration, and support you need to improve and be the best you can be – both on and off the court. And best of all, a community filled with like-minded players that want to see you win and makes you feel at home.

THE BULLETPROOF ACADEMY WORKS!
CHECK OUT WHAT OUR PLAYERS ARE SAYING ABOUT US
I added 29 cm/11.4 inches to my vertical jump after training with Bulletproof Performance!
This is THE program for any athlete looking to take their performance to a higher level. It’s well organized, fun, challenging, and tailored to fit your life.
I am now 4 months into the program and I can really notice the difference in my performance and my muscles. I recently went back to my club after the summer break and I crushed all of my previous test results!
I'm stronger, faster, and jumping higher than ever. I would highly recommend the program to anyone who wants to take their game to the next level!
UAE Women's Indoor Volleyball National Team
“If you want a dedicated, thoughtful and high quality volleyball program - this is it!”
Recently turning 30 I realized I could no longer keep my level up by only playing beach volleyball. My body would get tired and achy a lot faster than it used to.
I started training with Bulletproof, and I have definitely not regretted it! The entire concept is excellent. It's fun, efficient, and innovative - the complete opposite of your standard off-the-shelf program.
I've been surprised at how much untapped potential I’ve been able to access, and both my body and my game is feeling better across the board. I'm jumping higher and my agility and explosiveness is back!
Indoor Volleyball Player
“I went from dreading my gym sessions, to loving them!”
If you want to improve your game, I would highly recommend this program! Before I was having a hard time finding a trainer who understood what I really needed and who could give me volleyball-specific exercises. It was affecting my motivation to train and I was struggling being consistent with my workouts.
But after I started training with Bulletproof instead I found myself being excited about going to the gym, because I knew I was working on something that would specifically improve my game!
After just a few weeks all my strength tests were way better already. I had also been battling with a painful shoulder for the last couple of years, but after training with Bulletproof it’s completely gone!
Indoor Volleyball Player
“I feel stronger than I did before my surgery!”
I started working with Bulletproof Performance right after having had shoulder surgery. The surgery was stressing me out and I was worried I would never be able to play volleyball again!
However, after training with Bulletproof I regained full strength and mobility of my shoulder, and was able to get back on the beach volleyball court without any pain in the shoulder. Throughout the process, I gained back the confidence in myself and my shoulder, and made a successful comeback feeling even stronger than I did before!
ABDULLAH AL SAYEGH
Beach Volleyball Player
“I'm jumping higher, my strength has doubled and I can really feel the difference on the court!”
Before working with Bulletproof I didn't have any schedule or routine for my training and I didn't know what would be the best exercises to help me achieve my goals. It was demotivating and I didn’t want to start working out again because I had no clue where to start.
Now, thanks to Bulletproof Performance, I found my drive again! Structure is important to me and I love the powerful simplicity of this program. It’s exciting and motivating knowing I'm doing exercises that will get me closer to where I want to be!
Beach Volleyball player
“Training with Bulletproof is the reason my life is back on track!”
I took a year off from playing beach volleyball due to some repeating injuries that were really getting in the way of my improvement. When I decided to start getting ready for the new season, I approached Anja because I had worked with her previously and she’s a great volleyball player herself.
The combination of Anja being a physiotherapist/strength & conditioning coach/athlete was a definite win. I did 3 months of off-season training with her which yielded amazing results - I added 15 cm/6 inches to my vertical jump!
Thank you, Anja, you brought joy back into my life, and that’s such a noble act.
ARSALAN AL HASHIMI
Beach Volleyball player
“I’ve never felt better on the court!”
The Bulletproof Performance program is the perfect pre-season preparation that any athlete needs in order to physically and mentally prepare themselves for the season. It gives you so much strength and drastically decreases the possibility of injury.
I really recommend this program to anyone who has a passion for volleyball and is dedicated to work hard in order to excel in the sport. I want to thank Bulletproof Performance for helping me achieve my goals when it comes to my vertical jump, and making me feel faster, stronger, and more powerful on the court than ever before!
NADWA AL SAWAN
UAE Women's National Team Indoor Volleyball
“This program WORKS!!”
For a long time, I was struggling to find the right training to get better. But now after working with Bulletproof I finally got the improvements I was looking for. My speed and vertical jump are better, and I can feel the difference on the court. I would recommend the program to anyone!

QUESTIONS? ASK AWAY!
The Bulletproof programming will include 4 training sessions per week. These sessions will vary in both length and intensity depending on which part of your yearly season you are in. This is to make sure you get both the right type and the right amount of training at all times, and that the program will fit easily together with your volleyball training and competitions. Everything else inside the Academy is totally self-paced and accessible to you whenever you want.
The Bulletproof program is mainly centered around bodyweight and free-weight movements, so you really don’t need much equipment to be able to follow the program. Whenever specific equipment is required we will provide you with alternatives of what you can use instead, or with substitute exercises.
Not only can you ask questions and get advice, support and feedback any time from within our community; but we also run monthly live Q&A sessions, where you can either pre-submit your questions for the Bulletproof Team or get the chance to ask them live. In addition, the program itself is structured in a way that helps you keep track of your results through regular testing and assessments, to ensure you are consistently on track to peak performance.
We know firsthand how frustrating pain and injuries can be, which is why injury prevention, injury management, and pain education are such a key part of our program. You will have access to a number of educational modules on these topics, as well as easy-to-follow rehab/prehab protocols for all the most common volleyball injuries. *
Totally! The Bulletproof Academy is an amazing place to start if you’re new to the game. Not only will our introductory training program set you up with the proper movement foundation, but through the Level Up Kits, TimeOut interviews, and our global community you’ll also find all the support and inspiration you need to continue to grow your volleyball passion.
Yes, absolutely! We work with multiple National Team athletes, in both indoor and beach volleyball. There are several advanced options available within the training program, and we will also provide you with resources especially applicable to semi-professional and professional players.
The Bulletproof programming offers everything you need to take your volleyball game to the next level. It will include everything from power and strength training, speed and agility, conditioning and court-specific skills, as well as injury prevention and active recovery workouts. The program does not include on-court volleyball training.
You’ll get instant access to all our TimeOut interviews, where we dive deep into the mindset and strategies of some of the best players in the world, as soon as you join. Not only will we release new TimeOut interviews every month, but we will also be running LIVE Q&A calls with some of the players, where you can ask them all your questions directly!
We are proud partners and supporters of Let’s keep the ball flying – a non-profit organization with multiple social development projects across the globe focused on giving children in need a chance to have a life-changing experience through volleyball.
