Client Reviews

My son learned a lot from him in one day. He enjoyed his session very much. He couldn't stop talking about him on the way home. Even continued telling his friends about him afterwards. My son is not the type that's easily flattered, but this was not the case with Coach Jason. He was so impressed by him. He was so inspired that he continued his training the next day. He's very much looking forward to his next session.

Throughout my four years of high school I have had several coaches and Coach Hitch is by far the best. He is an astonishing coach with a true devotion to his job and his athletes. His workouts are technique oriented with an emphasis on unlocking your true speed. He takes the time to see where you are struggling and how you can improve it by organizing specific workouts that target that struggle. If you are injured he will take a conservative approach and create detailed workouts to make sure that you are able to workout and not worsen the injured area. He has a wonderful spirit that will cheer you up regardless if you were previously having a good, or bad day. His charisma brings an overall boost in morale for the team and everyone involved. He is an overall wonderful coach with a true dedication to his job. I am pleased to have had the opportunity to work with him for my last year of track and field.
Coach Hitch helped me push not only my physical limits, but my mental limits. He taught me how to dig deep and tap into something more valuable than physical ability. He also invested in me as a person and really made me feel like I was an important asset on the team, as well as important off the track.
Training with Coach Hitch is such a good experience for all athletes, but especially athletes who need a little push. Hitch is a very honest coach that gives constructive criticism. He helped me gain confidence not only in my running ability, but in myself.
Coach Hitchens changed the sport of track & field for me through his attention to detail and ability to see potential. He took the time to get to know me as both a person and an athlete, and encouraged me to strive for excellent in both arenas. Under his coaching, I ran faster than I ever had before, while completely understanding the reasoning and detail that went into my training. He is more than just a coach - he's an educator, a developer and to continues to be a mentor to this day".
Coach Hitchens is and will forever be my favorite coach! He is able to break down the basics of track and teach it to multiple people while sustaining a positive and upbeat attitude. For me personally he taught me the perfect balance of how to work hard and recover correctly. Having come off an injury from the previous season, Coach Hitchens has helped me to improve my times so drastically that I have PR'd more times than my first 2 seasons of combined and helped me to run pain free
