Testimonials

 

I have been working with Chris for about a year now. He's really worked hard to prep me for my Freshman year at prep school. My athletic abilities have developed both, physical and mentally. Even while at prep school, Chris provides me with nutritional tips and constantly keeps tabs on my progress. Not only does he help me throughout off season training with intense training, but also sends me workouts to do during the season to keep me in the best shape. As i keep growing as a person, I know I'll be in the best shape because with Chris's help.

When I first started going to see Chris I was at the beginning of a season and wasn't playing well. I had lost most of my confidence as a player because the season before wasn't a good one either. Chris spent time with me, worked with me, helped get my confidence as a player back and improved my skill. Because of Chris I was nominated for the all star team and now have a chance at furthering my career at the junior and college level.

I have been training with Chris at Assist Performance since May 2015 and within the time of training with him, I have noticed major changes not only with my physical appearance, but my overall performance as well. I have gotten bigger, stronger, and faster. I have been able to do more repetitions and have also increased my endurance and agility since training with Chris. Not only does the five days a week of training increase my overall potential, but Chris' knowledge of the proper nutrition that I need, and that he is monitoring, is also effective. His "athlete first" personality is an asset that other competitors would find difficult to compete with. I will be continuing my daily training at Assist Performance well through the summer until I return for the upcoming hockey season.

We met when I was skating with the Flyers and began training together shortly after. As a 6’2 210lbs goaltender, Chris realized I needed to slim down and focus more on my strength, agility, flexibility, and speed by using resistance, weight training and plyometrics. Having dealt with knee surgery and other injuries as well, I am not an easy project for anyone. Chris found a way to work through my injury and build muscles that allows me to move better.  To accomplish this, Chris had to take in my opinions of what I was capable and not capable of doing, then make a judgement call on what I was babying and what needed to be accomplished. He knows the sport. He understands what goes into the physical aspect of the game with his training experience and knowledge.  

 

After working together, I am happy to say that I am feeling great on and off the ice, moving at an explosive pace, with control and flexibility. More importantly, I consider Chris a great friend, someone I can count on day in and day out.  As an athlete, you have to develop a level of trust in your coach, as it affects your game greatly for better or worse. I trust in Chris as a friend and a strength coach.
