“The sophomore was a standout in both the 100 breaststroke and 100 backstroke, winning the NEC and earning first team All Conference status for his work in the former. Groleau competed in both events at the North Sectional Meet, scoring Gloucester’s lone point in the backstroke and earning a trip to the Division 1 State Meet, where he finished 16th.”
Sam has a bright swim career in front of him. He is already back at Allied Strength to prepare for next season.
Allied Strength athlete Mia Cromwell was named Winter Sport All-Star by the Gloucester Times Sports Team for her achievements in track & field:
Mia Cromwell, Manchester Essex track and field: The junior is the Manchester Essex program record holder in the 1,000m, and she broke her own record twice this season en route to All League honors. Cromwell won the CAL in the event and finished second at the Division 5 State Meet before turning in a top-15 finish in the event at the All-State Meet. She set a new program record in the 1,000m at both the Division 5 and All State meets.
Well deserved recognition for her achievements! She has been consistently working hard in the gym to get faster and stronger. Glad to see it is paying off!
It has been a busy few weeks for Allied Strength Athletes Mia Cromwell (Indoor Track) and Sam Groleau (Swimming). Both made it to All States in their respective sports and set new personal records in their events.
Sam placed 16th overall with a new personal record time of 1:03.21 in the 100 Yard Breaststroke as a Sophomore and today was named All Conference for his successes this season. He is already back to work at Allied Strength preparing for next season.
At the Indoor Track All States Meet on Saturday Mia placed 13th overall and set another personal record time in the 1000m (3:02.79) after just setting a previous best and breaking the Manchester-Essex High School record two weeks before. She is also be back in the gym this week to prepare for her Senior season of soccer in the fall and next year’s track season.
They both should be very proud of the work they put in and for showing up regularly to train in pursuit of their achievements. They deserve a lot of credit and praise for that. I can’t wait to see how they progress for next season.

Allied Strength’s Sports Performance Program is Unmatched in Cape Ann
At Allied Strength we have athletes that travel from up to 20-minutes away (Manchester, Essex, Ipswich, Lynnfield, Hamilton-Wenham, and locally in Gloucester) to make sure they are getting the best possible training experience and results for their sport. From middle/high school to the collegiate level, our sports performance program is built to help athletes reach, and then surpass their perceived athletic potential.
The Cornerstones of the Allied Strength Sports Performance Program
Reduce the Risk of Injury: With the increase trend of sport related injury in youth athletes (NCAA Research) it is imperative that we do everything possible to assure our athletes have a long and healthy career. The prime pillar and perhaps the greatest benefit of the Allied Strength Sports Performance program is reduced risk of injury during competition. The increase in overall strength and endurance will help prepare athletes for the rigors of competition to compete at a high level throughout their season and the playoffs.
Maximize Performance: The Allied Strength Sports Performance Program is designed to help athletes get faster, stronger and to compete at the highest levels of their sport. From youth to collegiate athletics, the competition is getting tougher. A safe and effective strength and conditioning program is becoming more standard and in some cases a requirement for one’s sport. Beginning at the warm up, to speed training, power development, plyometric training, strength training and conditioning, athletes at Allied Strength are being prepared to perform at their best no matter their current level of competition.
Provide the Optimal Environment for Athlete Growth: The Allied Strength Sports Performance program is built to support athletes of all abilities and from Age 10 and up. This includes teenagers that currently do not play a sport and want to be a part of a fitness program. No matter how fast, strong or skilled, all Allied Strength athletes are teammates. Great teammates support and encourage each other to work hard and get better every single session. This includes a zero-tolerance policy for name calling or athletes putting other athletes down.
Breakdown of Each Session
Allied Strength Sports Performance training sessions are 80-minutes long and are constructed to help athletes take their performance to the next level. We do this by improving movement quality, increasing speed, power, explosiveness and strength, all while reducing the risk of injury. Each session begins with an Active Warm Up to improve movement and tissue quality, improve agility, and power output. The active warm up is followed by Strength Training, utilizing full body movements to maximize results and minimize training risk. Each session finishes with high intensity conditioning to increase cardiovascular and muscular endurance. We do this by utilizing our Assault Air Bikes, weight sleds, as well as slide boards for lateral movement conditioning.
Our program also has considerations and modifications for overhead (baseball/softball/swimming) and other specialty athletes.
Group Sizes and Scheduling:
Each group is capped at 7 Athletes to provide attentive coaching/feedback and optimal group flow. While it is not guaranteed, if an athlete is unable to make a scheduled group time, we will do our best to have them make up the session at a different time and/or day.

For more than seven years I have had the privilege to coach a wide range of athletes at Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning, from untrained middle school athletes just beginning a strength and conditioning program to elite level athletes in college and the pros. Before my time at MBSC I interned at Cressey Sports Performance. My decade of sports performance coaching and programming is the foundation of our program at Allied Strength.
Allied Strength provides a welcoming and encouraging environment that meets the athletes where they are now and challenges them to reach their perceived potential and then exceed it. It doesn’t matter if you don’t play sports, or if it is your first time in a strength and conditioning facility, or if you are a confident veteran.. Our athletes at Allied Strength will be driven to not just be great athletes, but to be excellent leaders and teammates and people.
Registration and payment is done at our facility at 27 Kondelin Road, Unit #4, Gloucester, MA
