It is my pleasure to provide a testimonial on Coach Nick Savage’s behalf. Nick and I met over twenty years ago when we worked together on a significant GovCon IT program. During those days, I learned of Nick's passion for coaching, training, and mentoring athletes, focusing on strength & conditioning and various sports such as Track & Field, football, and basketball. We developed a friendship in the ensuing years. After observing Nick's passion and technique, my wife and I decided to entrust Nick with training of our three children, each with a different athletic focus. Nick’s passion for excellence and dedication to his athletes’ lives inspired me to join in his efforts, helping wherever he deemed necessary in whatever way I could. Not surprisingly throughout the years, athletes’ coach and trained by Nick have advanced through the ranks of Junior Olympics (winning at all levels), winning at the National level for younger athletes and some even joining the professional ranks. Incidentally, all our children went on to compete at the collegiate level in sports or sports journalism. Coach Nick possess every quality needed in a highly effective and supportive coach. He is knowledgeable, motivated, passionate, disciplined, dedicated to continuous improvement, and possesses an unflagging work ethic. Nick's energy and enthusiasm are contagious as he works to instill these same qualities in his assistant coaches and athletes, modeling how to excel athletically, academically with integrity. Nick has coached or trained in middle school, high school, college, and professional athletes. Coach Nick has consistently exceeded all our expectations and has been nothing short of extraordinary. His programs build confident, positive, influential leaders. I recommend Coach Nick without reservation.
Nick is extremely knowledgeable and tailors the instruction and workout plan to the specific needs of his clients. Once you work with him you are truly family.
Nick is and extraordinary coach that does nothing less but get results. He is highly sought after and has helped my athletes run faster, Jump higher, and get opportunities to play at the professional level. There is not one coach I would trust more in Florida the coach savage. Bar none the best speed coach in the country
Coach Nick was willing to share is knowledge of all this track and beyond. He’s personal touches made it feel as if the focus was on one when twenty could be on the track. He is one of the reasons why I am where I am today.
For us, Spring was our first track season, with year and years to come.
As you stated on the first tryout day, you slimmed Evan down. He lost seven needed pounds and slimmed out. I love your concept of having the kids set their own goals. For Evan, he set a goal to run a 10K, which he did! He set out a goal to eat better, which he did (which helped with the weight loss).
What I liked most about your program was, it wasn't all about the training, it was about teaching the kids to better themselves for their daily lives, with eating, school, home life.
Coach Nick deserves more than the regional award received. I only have wonderful things to say about what you have done for Evan, and we look forward to running again next Fall.
The Special Forces program has caused a tremendous change in my demeanor and confidence on and off the track. The coaches the parents as well as the teammates have taught me a multitude of lessons and I plan to continue running for them but this year I would like to give their gifts back tenfold and show this state and this nation how amazing a program Special Forces is for everyone.
Special Forces has had a major impact on my life as an athlete and as a person. Being around positive people of my peer group and getting to build life long friendships with those people has played a large part in my life. Athletically, Special Forces gave me the training I needed to put my skills in the same bracket as state champions, and helped me to receive attention from college coaches and several scholarship offers. Coach Savage has turned around the lives of many young people who might not otherwise have had the time and attention they needed in their lives.
