About Danny Foley

Originally from Northern Virginia, Danny Foley relocated to the Hampton Roads area in 2008 with intentions to play college basketball. After a brief stint at Virginia Wesleyan University, he made a decision to transfer in order to prioritize academic opportunities. Danny is a recent graduate of Old Dominion University, where he obtained both his B.S. and M.S. in Exercise Science. As part of his graduate program, he conducted a research study on velocity-based training as a preferred periodization protocol within athletic populations.

Although his initial career plan was to pursue a position in the collegiate or professional athletics realm, a serendipitous turn led him to Virginia High Performance (Virginia Beach, Virginia) in 2016. Danny has been with VHP for five years now, currently serving as Head Strength and Conditioning Coach. Throughout his time at VHP, he has developed a concentrated skillset of restorative-based strength training, working predominantly with U.S. Special Operations Command personnel and tactical athletes. Danny has taken the transition in stride and has been overjoyed with the direction of his current professional path.

In 2018, Danny and his wife Nicole launched Rude Rock Strength, a joint personal-professional endeavor designed to provide remote-based training and strength training and performance related content. Danny’s long-term professional aspirations are to work his way to the NFL and to one day serve as the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach for his beloved Las Vegas Raiders.
