Great session with Coach Clifford!

In my first session, Coach Clifford already broke down many parts of my form that needed improvement and helped me work on them with various drills. Very great coach!

Coach Wong has so much experience and such a great manner dealing with athletes. He’s kind, persistent, and focused on track.

My son really enjoyed working with Coach Clifford! He evaluated his sprinting and gave him things to work on, and advice on how to take it to the next level! We also found him very personable and encouraging. We highly recommend him!

We enjoyed working with Coach Wong.

Very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Had tips for form and speed. Took time and was patient with my daughter who was very inexperienced. I would definitely recommend.

Coach Clifford was a great coach for my son and is patient and understanding. Coach Clifford also responded to our request really fast. My son looks forward to working with Coach Clifford long term.

Coach Wong is exactly what you want in a coach....motivational, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and talented. His sessions are structured, fun, and result in growth. He does diagnostics, provides clear instruction and gives specific feedback. Signing up for more sessions to benefit from his development program and expertise.

I have had few sessions with coach Clifford. So far he seems very good, though it is hard to rate someone with few sessions. He however, has been willing to accommodate my specific needs, as I do not have a regular lung capacity as other people. He is a really good person, as I have noticed that he tries to help me however he cans. He pushes me to do my training and believes in my capacity to do better. I started coaching with him relatively late for an event I want to compete for track and field, but he has put a lot of emphasis in the lifting and cycling of my legs, and also in my warm ups. I really believe the longer you work with him, the better you can get.

Excellent Coach. My daughter had a great time working out with him and she can't wait for her next session. Very knowledgeable and good with kids, very responsive as well. Can't ask for more.

Coach Wong was excellent with communicating with me about my goals and was extremely responsive when messaging back and forth. He is great to work with during training. 5 stars all around.

Coach Clifford was able to fix my son’s running bad habits quickly, and gave him good tips for running efficiently.

Immediately spotted what my son needed to focus on to improve his control and speed

Good Coach. He uses great training techniques to help improve performance. I immediately noticed better results in my running after the first week.

Great session for Catherine. Thank you

My daughter has been running sprints for several years and in just one session Coach Wong gave her great input on ways to improve her technique and lower her times. He clearly enjoys coaching and working with people. He communicates well, listens carefully, and ably demonstrates the techniques he is teaching. He put a lot of emphasis on warming up and training the right way to minimize the risk of injury. My daughter thoroughly enjoyed the session. We both highly recommend Coach Wong.

Coach Clifford was an excellent coach. He was patient and really helped my son understand the fundamental needed to improve as an athlete.

Coach Clifford is fantastic; very positive and patient with my 9-year old son. He keeps it fun so my son is motivated to keep working hard and is really enjoying his sessions.

Very knowledgeable and passes it on effectively. You don't stop until you get it right. Very thorough in teaching technique. My 8 year old says he's tough but she can't wait to engage in his next session.

My daughter is new to track and Coach Clifford is extremely patient and fun yet tough enough to help her learn. It is obvious that he knows how to teach a runner proper form and how to take care of their bodies. I highly recommend him for any level!!

Coach Clifford did a good job in teaching the fundamentals on the first session.

My 12 year old is eager to continue to train with Coach Clifford! After only one session he feels like a brand new athlete. The coach is very knowledgeable and the session was very productive.

When I signed up my son, he was not too thrilled about it. I had to drag him for the session. Just after one session, he is really thrilled and motivated. He is already looking forward for his next session. Coach Clifford is very good in getting kids do their best. Thank you coach.

Coach Clifford has really helped our son with his training. He has a great attitude and cares about his clients.

Coach Clifford took time to instruct my 14-yr-old daughter on her mechanics and form. He provided great feedback and was very easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend him as a coach to anyone looking to improve their skills.

Coach Clifford is a super great coach. He supports you with the proper technique and the proper exercises to improve yourself and to meet your goals. I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed.

Coach Wong has coached my kids in track for the last four years. He pushes them to excel while teaching them proper technique. He challenges them to do their best on and off the field. He always encourages them and provides great feedback so they can improve after each event. He is an example to them in his own actions and in what teaches. He expects hard work and dedication but also gives it back in return. I feel very fortunate that my kids have been able to benefit from Coach Wong's experience, knowledge, and expertise.
You are a special and terrific coach and Marshall, but especially the kids, are really lucky to have you! I know you really make a difference in their lives and teach them much more than running!
