My name is Kelsey O’Gorman I coach both field hockey and lacrosse at the varsity level. During the preseason I trained my players using the techniques and strategies that Srength and Condtioning Coach Jim Massaro discusses in his book. The Lacrosse Sports Performance strength, speed and agility book has helped my girls lacrosse team reach the New Jersey State sectional final game. I would recommend this book to other coaches that wish to bring their teams fitness level, footwork and agility to the next level.
I began training with Jim when I was 15 and entered the ninth grade. Back then I was 170 lbs., my bench was 135 lbs., and I couldn't squat more than 250 lbs. By the fall of my senior year my weight was up to 245 lbs. Now as I prepare to enter my freshman year in college, my bench max is up around 300 lbs., squat is 550 lbs. and power clean in around 270 lbs.
Jimmy not only worked with me on my size and strength, but my speed and agility. The combination of the size, strength, speed and agility that Jim helped me build assisted me in making first team all-state in both my junior and senior years. I will also be playing football at Cornell University. None of this would have been possible without the intense and varied physical training Jim put me through.
Jim Massaro was the key to my success in the sport of football. As my trainer for the past five years, he has increased my strength and agility that has propelled me to be the bigger, faster, stronger football player I am today. His advice, encouragement and workout system helped me earn the starting linebacker position at the University of New Haven. Jim Massaro is my trainer, mentor and friend. He has made a positive influence on my life and career.
After training under Coach Jim Massaro, I have come to realize he is one of the few gems in the training industry today. As a D-1 Sprinter for an SEC school (SEC has the top sprinters in the nation as a whole), I knew that I had to concentrate on my strength, speed and power in order to succeed. Jim not only helped me with these attributes, but many others as well in order to achieve my goals. I can truly appreciate Jim's continuing emphasize to out work your opponents and never give up, a motto every athlete should strive for. I know that if I ever have a problem, I can go to Coach Massaro and he will try his best to help me out, no matter what the problem is. If you want to achieve greatness that you only dreamed about on the athletic field, or just want to become healthier in everyday life, Coach Jim Massaro is the man to go see. Coach Massaro is truly the ultimate of coaches". Thanks again for everything
As a strength coach I can tell you if you are going to be successful you need to begin with a well constructed plan. It is our responsibility to take our athletes and carefully make them bigger, stronger and faster. I'm happy to say that Coach Jim Massaro has laid that blue print for you. With these manuals at my finger tips, I now have a step-by-step guild to leave my athletes in the best position possible. Not only have my athletes shaved times off their 40, but have systematically become stronger as well. I can't thank you enough Coach.
Since opening my doors for business in February of 2008, I have relied heavily on Coach Massaro's expertise and guidance in training my athletes. In a world full of "make believe" and "wanna-be" strength coaches; Coach Massaro stands out as one of the only true experts in the field of developing greater strength, explosiveness, quickness, agility, and coordination in athletes. On top of his outstanding professional credentials, Coach Massaro is a man of tremendous ethics, values, and moral fiber. I highly recommend Coach Massaro's manuals to any strength coach, athlete, athletic director, personal trainer, or gym owner looking to gain knowledge and a competitive edge over their competition.

I have known Jim Massaro for over twenty years. I can recommend him highly as an individual and as a professional. As an athlete, Jim was one of those rare individuals blessed with both ability and an outstanding work ethic. He was talented and constantly sought improvement.
Jim has been our strength consultant at RCC since 1990. He has devised workout programs for teams and also for particular groups (e.g. pitchers, goalies, etc.) He has worked one on one with exceptional players in order to eliminate weaknesses and concentrate on strengths. Every player has different needs and Jim is adept at recognizing and implementing individual workout programs.
Jim Massaro is a person of remarkable character and I recommend him highly as a trainer.
As the head of a certifying body and developer of a unique physical training system, I am often asked to provide testimonials for members of the profession. Yet in discussing the work of Jim Massaro I feel humbled because of my enormous respect for him both professionally and personally.
Having Jim Massaro as part of Renegade Training is simply an honor for the company and myself. His level of expertise is extraordinary and unparalleled. Jim is the ultimate coach and
there is no question when I need the coaching expertise and leadership, I look to one person—Jim Massaro.
Jim’s work is exemplary and I would whole-heartedly endorse the use of his work.
