Carr Elite is an Elite Training Facility in the heart of the Central Valley developed by brothers David and Derek Carr. Derek Carr is the Quarterback for the Oakland Raiders. David is a former Professional NFL Player and Super Bowl Champion with the New York Giants. Currently, David is an NFL Analyst for the NFL Network. The idea of building and creating a World Class Facility in the Central Valley became clear to older brother, David Carr when his younger brother, Derek Carr made the choice to stay and train in Bakersfield, California in preparation for the 2014 NFL Draft. 



While many elite caliber athletes will leave their hometown to train at other facilities and academies across the country, Derek stayed home to train with David and Rodger Carr, as well as, Bakersfield’s Premiere Strength and Conditioning Coach, Eric Mahanke. David and Eric created a program for Derek that would eventually prepare him for the Senior Bowl, Pro Day, the NFL Combine, and ultimately on an NFL Team with the Oakland Raiders. If it could be done here, with Derek Carr, why not for other aspiring college and professional athletes?

Today, Carr Elite prepares all athletes, at every level, to become more competitive, and College Players to make their professional dreams a reality. With a state of the art training facility in Bakersfield, athletes from the Central Valley don’t have to go far to receive Elite Training and Conditioning. Carr Elite also provides Football Mini Camps and Clinics throughout the year for elementary, high school and college age kids. These programs are specifically designed to create a positive environment where athletes can learn the correct fundamentals of football and improve their skills.

Both David and Derek Carr have worked diligently in devising a football curriculum that both the most amateur player to the most experienced Quarterback or Receiver can benefit from. Carr Elite trains athletes in every sport, from softball, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, gymnastics, volleyball, to diving and golf. Whatever your fitness, conditioning, and strength goals are, Carr Elite will carve out a program just for you.


In addition, for those individuals that have personal weight, strength or nutritional goals, Carr Elite provides personalized training, as well as, small group Fitness Classes. You don’t have to be an Elite Athlete to get an Elite workout. Football is where it started for the Carr Brothers, but every athlete from any sport can develop their talents and achieve the highest level of Elite Training.
