Our Team of Basketball Trainers

Pro-Fit has a team of experienced basketball trainers with proven skills on the court. Our lead trainer and owner is Julian Vaughn, who played at Georgetown University at the collegiate level and even tried out for the Washington Wizards and Boston Celtics before pursuing a basketball career overseas in Europe.

Vaughn uses his experience as a professional basketball player to develop comprehensive training programs that will get the most out of our athletes—and that could include you!

Accompanying Julian in the training department are:

  • R. Pinnock (Trainer): J.R. played college basketball at George Washington University, where he led in scoring during the 2006 season. Drafted by the Lakers, he played pre-season games with the team before leaving to play overseas. J.R. brings a lot to the Pro-Fit team when it comes to basketball drills and developing skills.
  • Oliver Ellison (Trainer): Oliver, a D.C. native, played collegiate basketball at Howard University. After college, he played professionally for two years overseas on teams in Africa. Oliver has a keen eye for identifying ways for players to improve their game, so he helps create programs customized to each player.
  • Christian Macauley (Trainer): Christian played basketball at Texas A&M and then played for the NBA G-League before going overseas. He specializes in developing players to be as focused on defense as on offense.

What Our players say


An extremely professional place. The Coaches are very passionate about teaching and the kids leave this facility with new attitudes and great self confidence. Excellent Basketball facility!!! I would highly recommend it to anyone that has a passion for basketball and wants to learn the fundamentals and is looking for a place to learn and have fun!


Julian’s advisement and guidance helped me develop as a player at the professional level. I would recommend him to anyone from middle school to professional level. His knowledge of basketball mixed with strength and conditioning will lift anyone trying to improve their game to the next level! Anyone looking for their child to get a scholarship to play basketball should definitely check out Pro Fit basketball.


It was my daughter's first experience with professional basketball training and she was not as developed as the other children, they worked with her on the side one on one to get her up to speed. They are amazing with children, using positive reinforcement but high expectations. Great Facility!


I would recommend coach Julian to anyone that is either starting to play basketball or trying to become better at it. My son said he had a great time with coach Julian, he was nice and quickly helped him to improve his shot. I would recommend coach Julian to anyone who is looking for a good coach that can quickly help them improve their skills!


Coach Julian is an awesome coach! My son trained yesterday with him for the first time and we are continuing sessions with Coach Julian for sure! Julian is a “big picture guy”! In addition to working on overall conditioning, agility and ball handling skills etc., what makes Julian an amazing coach is that he really focuses on understanding the game and knowing what to do at any point in the game. He is personal, attentive and motivated to make your child succeed with confidence. What more could you ask for!


Where do we begin with Coach Julian? He is the total package coach, all wrapped up in one. He was able to access my sons level of playing and create a plan that will excel him to an elite level. I appreciated him explaining the details of the workout regiment he had for my son, answering my many questions. He is very knowledgeable in strength/conditioning, basketball, and nutrition. On top of that, he is professional, friendly, and fun, making the entire work out experience perfect! My son is excited about his workouts with Coach Julian and that makes me extremely happy. He exceeds 5 stars!


Coach Julian was great I really learned a lot, and I loved working with him. I know if I keep working with him I would be so much better then where I am now with his help.


Coach Julian has great coaching techniques. He not only teaches you the game and how to improve on what’s needed to succeed but also improves on your basketball IQ. He uses workout techniques and drills that are used at the professional level. I have seen improvements in all aspects of my son’s game. My son achieved Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Maryland and with your training, it’s on to the next level. Thanks Coach


Coach Julian hit the ground running with my 8th grade son at their first coaching session. He came in with a game plan in mind, and that game plan was designed to quickly assess what my son needed to work on. They worked on ball handling skills, defense, and shooting skills and my son was so happy with everything he learned. Coach Julian has a very upbeat and encouraging attitude that my son really responded to. We definitely recommend Coach Julian to others.
