"I dropped my 40 yard dash time from a 4.75 to 4.59!"

I started training with Coach Blaine as a high school football player and
immediately noticed a difference in my training. He knew what my goals
were and trained me in the manner to help me maximize my full genetic
potential, focusing on speed and acceleration. Blaine is extremely gifted in
using every resource available keeping it fun for all athletes!

By training with Blaine I dropped my 40 yard dash time from a 4.75 to
. We also focused on my vertical power using various techniques such
as cleans, snatches, box jumping, bounding, and other variants. I also
increased my vertical jump height by almost 6 inches!

Aside from all of the numbers and goals that I had; Blaine also taught me
one of his athletes, he will take your training to the next level, like he
did for me when I landed a full athletic scholarship to play football at the
collegiate level!
