Client Reviews

Coach Donavan was a great coach! Very thorough, knows what he is talking about, and I would definitely recommend him!

Great first meeting with Donavan. He was very clear and precise on goals to achieve as well as homework that needs to be done.

Coach Rowe was responsive and accommodating with our schedule and location. He was engaging and motivational. He also provided our daughter w key take always to work on between sessions.
We’d recommend Coach Rowe.

Coach Donavan is a superlative track and fitness expert. He is well mannered, patient and knowledgeable. We came to Donavan to work with our 13 year old daughter to improve her stamina and speed. Our daughter plays basketball and we noticed that she often ran out of breath during long stretches of her games. In addition, my wife and I agreed that she was not running at optimal speed.

In our first session, coach Donavan address her mechanics which he explained contributed to her lack of speed. He corrected her tendency to lean forward while running, and taught her proper alignment with her arms and legs. Coach Donavan also gave our daughter additional daily exercises to strengthen her core, her legs and other muscles to improve her speed and conditioning. Within the brief times that we've met with Coach Donavan, we've seen tremendous improvement with our daughter during her tournament play. We wholeheartedly recommend coach Donavan and thank him for his excellence in improving our daughter's speed, conditioning, and more importantly, confidence as a young aspiring athlete.

Very impressed with the knowledge, the patience and the ability to connect with my kid and keep him focused. Focused on teaching him the technique–the hows and the whys... looking forward to working with Donavan again!
