Defenseman – Arizona Coyotes (NHL)
Former Captain of the Oshawa Generals (OHL)- 2015 Memorial Cup Champion
As a soccer player, I was fit and in shape before training with Brent, however, like most people my game had a few flaws as I was losing possession of the ball too often and felt I didn’t have the burst needed to win 50/50 races to the ball. I was referred to Brent by my sibling, whom habeen training with Brent for a few years at the time. When I started training, my main goals were to become quicker and more explosive, as well as to increase my overall strength to make it more difficult to dispossess me of the ball. After 10 months of training with Brent the results I have seen have easily exceeded any expectations I had going in. I am able to chase down teammates in practice I was never able to catch and have noticed opposing layers have a more difficult time disposessing me of the ball. For anyone looking for any type of of sport specific training, I would highly recommend Brent in a heartbeat. His knowledge, ability to keep training sessions unique to avoid monotony from one session to the next, and his ability to motivate you to reach new levels he knows you are capable of reaching, are second to none.
I have been working with Brent or some time now; I am a soccer player and play at a high level. I have had offers to go to campus, soccer schools, and tryouts in Europe. I was finally able to take an offer in the summer of 2009 but had picked up a very serious groin injury that I had been dealing with for a full season. Oce I found out that the offer was still on the table for the summer of 2010 I knew I needed to get professional training and go about this opportunity the right way. That’s when I sought out Brent. Brent and I met and discussed soccer and my off season training goals and after speaking with Brent I knew he was the one that would be able to take me to the next level. My goals. like many soccer players, were to become bigger, stronger, faster and to improve my overall core conditioning. I now also knew how imperative it was for me to also include groin strength and flexibility into my workouts.
Brent set up an amazing workout plan where I would vary the intensity of my workout while combining key training with focus on speed, agility and quickness. All I can say is Brent pushed me to my limits and beyond. Every session I saw improvement and I was always progressively increasing weight I was lifting. On top of that my overall speed times were cutting down which indicated that I was also becoming quicker and more agile. In a 3 month period I gained 10lbs of lean muscle, I couldn’t even gain 5 lbs of muscle in a year on my own! Training with Brent is just amazing; it’s like nothing I have ever done. Brent’s workouts are intense, innovative, and he makes them fun. Focus and motivation is never an issue.
Brent has so much knowledge in sport training and I believe this is what makes him an amazing trainer. I am so happy that I had the opportunity to include Brent into my growing career and I felt every session that I wanted to make him proud of my efforts and results. Brent does not settle for second best and because of that, expects nothing but 110% with very session.
After training with Brent I feel amazing. My groin is much stronger, I am bigger, and stronger and my speed has increased a lot. I feel so agile and quick on the pitch and very powerful and explosive in game type scenarios. If you are serious about training and are willing to give 110%, Brent is the man to help you achieve your goals.
Hopefully all works out and I become a pro soccer player. I will definitely be home in the off season to train with Brent and continue to take myself to the next level. I feel I can go Europe and compete no problem. Brent, you are amazing and I am honoured to have you as my trainer. Thanks again for all of your help and continued support.
As a newcomer to the arena of personal training, I was nervous about finding a trainer who was not only capable, but whose personality worked well with mine and who was able to encourage me in ways that I needed in order to reach my goals. Brent fulfilled all my requirements. He is personable and encouraging, while being organzied, focused and fully professional.
The fact that Brent works with a number of professional athletes gives him a comprehensive knowledge of a variety of sports beyond his expertise in personal training in general. He is well certified and uses this knowledge to create workouts tailored for each individual and his or her fitness goals. After creating these training formats, he works with the client to make sure each goal is met with sure success. My expectations were surpassed during our time together. By the end of our training period, I had increased my muscle mass, foot speed and vertical jump.
I trained with Brent or the weeks leading up to training camp with the Tulsa Shock (WNBA Team), as well as in preparation for the Canadian National Team. On both occasions, I felt strong, fit and mentally ready to handle anything that was presented during both camps.
The time I have spent with Brent- either training, talking, or simply e-mailing- has been a valuable addition to my training process. He makes himself available for further consultation and continued support even after his clients leave each training session….In my mind, this is what makes Brent an exceptional trainer.
Thanks again Brent!
