Client Reviews

Coach Dempster is amazing. My 15 year old son is a developing decathlete. The one event which was giving him the most trouble was the 110 high hurdles. He was injured for the high school season and not able to work as much as he would like. With the JO Combined coming up in 3 weeks, we asked Coach Dempster if he would be willing to help. Coach is professional, punctual, and was incredibly effective with my son. Although he has respectable scores in other events, my son had never performed at a decent level in a hurdles event - kind of jumping over the hurdles. We met Coach Dempster at the designated time. He was set up and ready to go. They got right into training, and when I returned an hour later, I could hardly believe what is saw. My son was hurdling! Not only just hurdling, he was hurdling with speed!!! I am sure that this one session with Coach Dempster lowered my son's time dramatically (lot more points for his decath score). After the session, Coach wrapped up with the basic points for my son to practice/use. Recommend Coach Dempster with both thumbs up!

1st time ever utilizing a running coach. Coach Dempster was on time,easy to converse with and very knowledgeable in the sport and mechanics of running. He was able to point out several areas on posture and running mechanics with just a few minutes of observing me run.

Thank you.

Dempster is extremely approachable, patient, and an expert in his craft. He approaches every problem from a unique perspective and works to find the best solution suited to towards you. He has tons of experience coaching a wide range of runners and has great success. So whether you're looking for a coach to help you lay the solid foundation to become a successful runner, or you are already a competitive runner who needs that extra edge, Dempster has the knowledge and tools to help you get there.

Coach Dempster was absolutely phenomenal with my son! His knowledge of technique and style of instruction were awesome. My son was engaged the entire session and really enjoyed himself. Thank you and can't wait for the next session.

Miguel felt motivated and wanting to continue with training. Great start!

Coach Dempster is a fantastic coach! Professional, informative, with an exceptional ability to teach techniques and create a training plans. Really looking forward to our next session!

My son's words when we got into the truck: "Coach was awesome!" Coach Dempster is patient, very knowledgeable and in-tune with the athlete he's working with. Great start and look forward to working with him more! Highly recommended!

My daughter has been working with coach Dempster for the past 3 months, I really recommend him.

My eleven year old son struggled with running properly. It became much worse recently to the point of concern so I scoured the internet looking for a solution because running is such an important life skill. I came across this website and Coach Dempster was highly recommended so I took a leap of faith and booked a session. I had no idea what to expect and I’ll admit I was feeling rather desperate. Coach Dempster is amazing when you meet him. He has high, positive energy and is a wealth of knowledge. Immediately after the first session I could already see improvement which was such a relief. We have met with him twice so far and are supposed to do the recommended exercises regularly. As we’ve done that, I’ve seen my son’s coordination and form improve dramatically. We will continue to meet with the coach as he progresses. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Coach Dempster to anyone no matter your age or skill level looking to improve the speed, strength, flexibility, and/or technique of your running.

Coach Dempster is such a dedicated and genuinely kind person! We are excited to continue working with him through my daughters high school career!

Dempster has been training my wife and my son for the last year (and myself a little). Their numbers have gone up insanely! Andrea came in 4th in the Fort Carson Spartan Spring ELITE WOMEN division. Awesome....

Coach Dempster is outstanding! He put my daughter's first day jitters at ease and she was very impressed with his coaching style. After one session my daughter is excited to put the strategies and tips into action! We will continue to work with Coach as she continues to grow. I would highly recommend Coach Dempster with your needs!

Coach Dempster is wonderful! He is engaging and knowledgeable, and his session was just the right blend of information and moving. My 13-year old learned an impressive amount in just one hour. He is really looking forward to his next session with Coach Dempster.

Coach Dempster is very knowledgeable and very well spoken; clear explanations of why we're doing what we're doing. A valuable tool- particularly for the Masters level athlete.

Great instruction

Coach Dempster has been an amazing coach. He is very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. I performed much better than I had expected on my very first marathon last October with his help. Am planning on keeping him as my running coach for as long as I stay healthy to run future marathons.
Thank you Coach Dempster!

Coach Dumpster is an awesome coach! He took the time to listen to my goals and understand where I was coming from. He helped me believe in myself. I haven't competed in 5 years and within the first couple weeks of my training, I raced an event I've never ran and initially had no confidence but I clearly beat the time I thought I was capable of. He believed in me. He was very helpful during training. I will most definitely train with him again!

Coach Dempster has a wealth of knowledge and is very encouraging.
I would certainly recommend him to help anyone who needs and/or wants guidance in physical training and conditioning.
Thank you coach.

Thank you Coach Dempster for your instruction , learned a lot in those two sessions ; highly recommend

We had a great first session with coach Dempster. He was great with both my kiddos. I'm excited to see the progress in our future sessions!

Coach Dempster responded to my initial message quickly & scheduled a session with my son for the next day. He provided great feedback & my son was thrilled with the experience. We look forward to continue working with Coach in the future!

I would highly recommend hiring Dempster Jackson as a coach. He is an intelligent, patient, encouraging, gifted athlete who helped me achieve my goal of completing a half marathon!

Coach Dempster was terrific! Assisted my 16 yr old son with the basics and some advanced techniques in short distance sprints. Coach Dempster explained everything in great detail and gave reasons why he did certain things; particularly with stretching and strength exercises. Never did he say, "Just do it because I said so." My son learned a lot and will be back for further training. Thanks Coach!

Coach Dempster truly is amazing, our 7 year old loves working with him and has seen huge improvements. Would recommend him for any age range.

Awesome first session! Dempster has a great ability to connect with clients. My son is working the exercises and enjoying them. We've already booked 2 more sessions!

Coach Dempster is amazing! He goes above and beyond for his students and we are so lucky to have him.
