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. It doesn’t get much better than that.

We know what it’s like to be benched, hurt or feeling like you are underperforming. And we have learned from our mistakes so you don’t have to. That’s why we’re bringing you all the training, resources and support you need to play your heart out, be your best, and master the game we all love most.

At Bulletproof, you’ll unlock your true potential. And most importantly, we want you to enjoy the process. We are with you every step of the way. Let’s do this together!

Let Bulletproof be your unfair advantage.

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.

TRAIN LIKE THE PROS – WITH THE PROS

BULLETPROOF SET YOU UP FOR SUCCESS

BULLETPROOF IS SO MUCH MORE THAN JUST ANOTHER STRENGTH & CONDITIONING PROGRAM.
IT’S A WORLDWIDE COMMUNITY OF:
  • Professional Volleyball Players
  • Performance Coaches
  • Injury Prevention Specialists
  • Of course, passionate players like you!
We’ve come together to bring you everything you need to fly high and win more games.

“NOW I FEEL LIKE A BEAST ON THE COURT!”

Even as a National team athlete, I’ve never really felt strong or explosive, and there have been times where I’ve questioned if I had what it takes to bring my game to the next level. On top of that I’ve been battling with a shoulder injury, which constantly had me worried – not knowing if it was something that could actually heal and get better.

That all changed after training with Bulletproof Performance… I almost can’t believe what a difference only two months could make, and that all it took was a proper program. My shoulder has healed and doesnt hurt anymore, I feel much faster and more explosive on court and my spikes are waaay stronger than before!

Bulletproof Performance is the most comprehensive, personalized and progressive training program I have ever followed, and the results speak for themselves!

THE BULLETPROOF ACADEMY IS FOR YOU IF…

THE BULLETPROOF ACADEMY IS NOT FOR YOU IF…

  • You aren’t interested in seeing what you are truly capable of on the volleyball court

  • You don’t mind holding back and never playing full out due to pain or fear of injury

  • You don’t care about playing time, winning more games or getting recruited

  • You’d rather quit volleyball and take up golf instead of working on getting rid of aches and pains

  • You don’t want to grow your volleyball family across the globe and be part of the largest, most supportive volleyball team there is

  • You don’t want to learn the secrets to success from some of the best volleyball players in the world

… if that sounds like you, then the Bulletproof Academy is not the right fit.

THE BULLETPROOF PROGRAMMING

AKA. YOUR ROADMAP TO FLYING HIGHER THAN EVER
This isn’t just another generic training plan…

It’s a professionally formulated,
volleyball specific program, created by top volleyball players,
performance coaches and injury prevention specialists.

It’s a program that will drastically improve your ability to
jump higher, spike harder and dig deeper.

It’s a program that will take your
volleyball game to the next level!

STRONG FOUNDATIONS

Building a rock-solid foundation is key to achieving peak performance. You need to first move well, to be able to move fast, high and heavy. This is why we have created a strategic introductory phase for once you enter the program. Here we will address strength imbalances, mobility restrictions and correct faulty movement patterns. This phase will set you up for success and make sure you aren’t jumping into anything without the right preparation.

SPORT SPECIFIC TRAINING

Whether you’re an indoor player or a beach volleyballer – we got you covered! We have created not one, but two training paths to follow, that are individually tailored for indoor and beach volleyball. That includes our signature Court Conditioning sessions – which are designed to work the specific skills and movements your game needs whether you want to win on the sand or on a hard court. As a member you will have access to both programs and can choose which one to follow at any time.

INJURY PREVENTION

We want you to win long-term. That is why we focus so much on preventing injuries and setbacks that can tank your season (or your entire career!). We are big believers that prevention is always better than cure, so not only will your programming already have exercises to bulletproof you baked into it, but you will also gain access to educational modules and rehab/prehab protocols for all the most common volleyball injuries.

SEASONAL PROGRESSION

If you’re a competitive volleyball player, regardless of what level, you need a program that is structured according to your game schedule. If you want to perform your best when it matters most, you can not train the same way year-round. Instead you need training progressions tailored to each specific phase of your season. That’s why the Bulletproof Programming follows the yearly competitive seasons, of indoor and beach volleyball respectively, so that you can get the right training at the right time!

RESULTS DRIVEN

The Bulletproof Programming has been tried and tested, refined and adjusted through thousands of hours, working with hundreds of athletes. It WORKS and will give you a serious leg up on the competition. Tracking your results and staying on top of your progress is key to this, and a thoroughly integrated part of the program. You will complete regular testing and assessments to ensure you are consistently on-track to peak performance.

QUESTIONS? ASK AWAY!

HOW MUCH TIME WILL IT TAKE TO GET THROUGH THE PROGRAM?

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.

IF I HAVE LIMITED GYM EQUIPMENT, CAN I STILL FOLLOW THE PROGRAM?

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. 

WILL I GET FEEDBACK ON MY OWN PERFORMANCE DURING THE PROGRAM?
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.
WILL THIS WORK FOR ME IF I STRUGGLE WITH PAIN OR INJURIES?
We know first hand how frustrating pain and injuries can be, which is why both injury prevention, injury management and pain education is 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. *
IS THIS PROGRAM SUITABLE FOR ME IF I'M ALREADY AN ELITE PLAYER?

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. 

DOES THIS PROGRAM COVER ALL ASPECTS OF VOLLEYBALL TRAINING?

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.

WILL I GET ACCESS TO THE TOP PLAYERS?

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, we will also be running LIVE Q&A calls with some of the players, where you can ask them all your questions directly! 

WHAT IS YOUR CANCELLATION POLICY?

You can cancel any time. Just inform us that you would like to cancel 5 days prior to your next billing date to ensure you’re not charged for that next billing period. You will still have access to the full Academy all the way up until your next billing date. 

HOW DOES BILLING WORK?

If you choose the yearly payment option, you will make a one time payment and be set for the entire year (and receive extra bonuses too!).
