Quotes from Clients:

“Stephen worked with my daughter after a high ankle sprain.  He did more in 3 days then any other trainer had done for her in 10 days.  The methods he used to get her walking again were awesome.  Stephen is one who thinks outside the box and gets his kids back to the sports they love quickly and stronger. ” – Marit Larson, Mom of a young athlete.

“Stephen’s dedication to athletes of all ages and sport is unquestioned. He uses programs that benefit the athlete no matter the sport. I witnessed his work with a local swim team and not only did the athletes improve from the conditioning and strength, they looked forward to doing them again and again.” – Colby Fuller, youth coach
