Claim to fame: Former college/professional football player

Southlake native Robert Clayton loves football and his hometown. Having graduated Southlake Carroll High School as a three-year starting varsity football player, Robert went on to be a four-year letterman and three-year starter at the University of Texas at El Paso. After college, he played professionally in the Arena Football League with the Austin Wranglers.

Robert started training linemen in his garage in 2009, and over the past eight years, his passion for coaching the next generation of football players has led to 5th Quarter Performance. Robert has trained more than 100 youth and children in that time, and 5th Quarter Performance has produced one Division I collegiate lineman every year.

A former 500-pound bench presser in college, Robert knows how important a tool strength is, but he also enjoys teaching about the mental side of the game as well as the conceptual aspects of the defense. Robert enjoys sharing his knowledge and experiences.

Plain and simple, Texas is the football capital of the world. From Friday Night Lights to some of the biggest collegiate and professional teams in the game, the Lone Star State is the place to be for America’s game.

Elite football needs elite players, and with that Texan Fitness introduces 5th Quarter Performance, an exclusive program designed to take the offensive lineman to the elite level through innovative techniques and customized programming.

Tremendous movement skills. Ten-yard sprints. Shuffling. Crossover drills. All are important aspects of the training regiment but are only just the beginning. While there’s plenty of attention to the fundamentals of being a top-level lineman, there’s also a focus on the mental side of the game, as well as the conceptual aspects of the defense.

Texan Fitness Co-Owner Robert Clayton has produced one NCAA collegiate lineman every year since he began training players in 2009. Over the past eight years, Robert has trained more than 100 children and youth in the Southlake Community. He’s used his invaluable experience as a high school, college and professional lineman to assemble the best tools of technique, knowledge, and strength to see his students reach their goals.
