Client Reviews

Our son's having a great time while getting a lot of instruction with regard to technique, would recommend to anyone in the area interested in improving their throws!

Coach Jose' was outstanding! He helped my son gain an additional 15' throwing discus in just one session. Coach Jose really knows proper technique and was quickly able to pin point things and make corrections. Incredibly thankful for Coach Jose

My son loved working with Coach Jose. He taught next-level discus skills that my son would not have learned on his own. Coach Jose definitely knows his stuff. Highly recommend.

Coach Jose is a great coach. I love the calm and positive demeanor he demonstrated in our first session. This is our daughters 1st year throwing and the tips he provided our daughter will absolutely help her in the future. I’m so glad we found him

Coach Jose' is the best coach I have ever worked with. His skills and teaching style are exceptional. Central to his style is inspiring success (even when I am not doing as well as I would like to). You will enjoy reaching your goals working with Coach Jose'. He is AWESOME and I highly recommend him.

Coach Portillo was amazing! First, he’s very competent, friendly and professional. He was flexible with our schedule and was available rain, sleet, or snow (literally). :-)

He demonstrated calm and confident energy. Not only was he encouraging, but he was able to connect with our son to establish a relationship. Coach provided feedback and sent videos so our son could see the areas he needed to work on. He also cheered him on through text during the week when he knew he was competing in a track meet.

He took a real interest in our son and our son enjoyed working with him.

End result: Our sons performance significantly improved. His rankings went from #14 to #4! He started asking us to schedule with Coach Portillo versus us initiating it because the results were evident

I would highly recommend Coach Portillo. We are a military family who have relocated several times so we have experienced many coaches. Coach Portillo by far is one of the best we’ve had the pleasure of working with and benefiting from his coaching.

Very knowledgeable; patient; good communicator. Quickly spots issues and makes suggestions. Points-out both things I was doing well as well as areas for improvement. Pushed me to improve thru small adjustments. Gave me some good warm-up exercises. Recognized when I was getting tired and didn't push me beyond my limits. I've had only 1 session with Jose and am looking forward to more. I feel confident he will help me reach my goal. I highly recommend Jose.

This is a coach that has expert knowledge of throwing and is very personable and flexible. We clicked well the first time we met and I had a great time learning from him! If you never threw or just want to increase distance and correct form, he is the coach for you!

This is a coach that has expert knowledge of throwing and is very personable and flexible.
