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.
