Welcome OTA Valparaiso IN

5.14.24 | Reston VA

We are excited to welcome Pedram Etebari to our Overtime Athletics Franchise Family. Pedram comes with a strong dedication to promoting health and wellness, along with a passion for sports and community engagement.


I'm thrilled to be introduced as the newest member of Overtime Athletics (OTA). My professional journey began with the establishment of FiTrain, a fitness haven in Valparaiso, IN, where I serve as the owner and operator. Drawing upon my experience as a former professional soccer player, I pioneered the personalized training and small group classes that FiTrain became renowned for. Through strategic business development, I achieved substantial revenue growth year on year, fostering a thriving community of health enthusiasts. Moreover, I diligently recruited and mentored a team of skilled trainers, ensuring that our clients received top-notch service and support.

My commitment to fitness and athleticism extends beyond the gym floor. As a professional indoor soccer player in Kerman, Iran, I earned the distinction of being the youngest player ever drafted into professional indoor soccer. Throughout my tenure on FC Kerman, I exhibited leadership, discipline, and adaptability, both on and off the field. Mentoring younger players and actively participating in community outreach initiatives were integral parts of my role, reflecting my dedication to teamwork and sportsmanship.

In addition to my professional endeavors, I have contributed to the scientific community through collaborative research and publications. Co-authoring a comprehensive article on EMG data analysis showcased my proficiency in scientific research, data analysis techniques, and effective communication of complex concepts. Furthermore, my contributions to the Health and Fitness Magazine of Iran underscore my commitment to promoting health awareness and knowledge dissemination on a broader scale.

As I embark on this new chapter with OTA, I am eager to leverage my diverse skill set and experiences to enrich the lives of children and students. OTA's mission to foster physical, mental, social, and emotional development through multi-sport programs deeply resonates with me, and I am committed to making a positive impact in our community.

I look forward to collaborating with each of you to uphold OTA's values and deliver exceptional experiences to children and families alike. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or ideas. Together, let's inspire the next generation to combine fitness with fun!
