Plymouth, MN – Baltimore Ravens tight end Maxx Williams spent the summer preparing for the upcoming NFL season at Inspired Athletx in Plymouth, MN.  A Waconia native and former Minnesota Gopher, Williams underwent a comprehensive and intense five week program leading up to what will be his fourth NFL season and a contract year.

“Coming here and working with Grant on PT, body work, and lifting, I feel great going into this season.”

The regiment included physical therapy sessions to optimize movement efficiency along with a focused training program designed to peak explosiveness leading into fall camp.  “Coming here and working with Grant on PT [physical therapy], body work, and lifting, I feel great going into this season, so I just want to go out there and have fun,” Williams said.

The 24-year old, who underwent a knee surgery prior to the 2017 season and sustained an ankle injury during that season, understands the importance of taking care of his body and has dedicated himself to that process this off season. “We’re working on the little things, and trying to get those little details right that can make you that much more explosive and keep up your mobility so you won’t get hurt as easily,” he said.

“I’ve been here just about a month now and I love it.  I know I have to come and work hard every day, but might as well do it while having fun.”

Williams’ primary trainer and physical therapist, Dr. Grant Norland said that Maxx is very professional about his work, but knows how to have a good time with it too.  “He’s here 20 minutes early to every 7:00 AM session and he lives 40 minutes away,” Norland said.  “He works his tail off in here, but also knows how to have fun with it.”

Williams echoed those sentiments “I’ve been here just about a month now and I love it.” he said.  “I’ve had a great time here.  We have fun lifting, we have fun working out, and that’s what it’s all about.  I know I have to come and work hard every day, but might as well do it while having fun.”

The Ravens report to camp on Thursday, July 19 and play in the early preseason Pro Football Hall of Fame game against the Chicago Bears on August 2.
