Coach Justin has been a great motivator and mentor to our son. I would say to others if you want to turn things around in a few short months contact Coach Justin. He'll make it happen.

Coach Justin Burks is extremely good and very football wise. He knows so many good drills that help me get better. When you are tired he keeps on pushing you which gives me amazing results! Coach Justin is also a very good person.


Extremely knowledgeable, professional, and experienced coach!

Coach Justin was absolutely wonderful. He communicated well, was organized, arrived early, stayed late, and provided a challenging yet rewarding workout for my son. I highly recommend coach Justin for all of your training needs.

Coach Justin was a great coach and knowledgeable about what he was doing. His workout was challenging and you definitely worth buying more sessions and getting better. He pushes you past the exhaustion period to see real results. Looking forward to seeing him again and seeing more results

Sebastian is very pleased with the progress he's making with Coach Justin. He is signing up for five more sessions because he is clearly benefiting from the instruction he is receiving.

If you are seeking an enthusiastic, motivator who clearly walks the walk then Coach Justin is your man. It is great to watch him push my 14 year old without pushing. Coach Justin was easily able to get him to do just one more, stretch a little harder and reach further. It is an honor to watch this athlete in action. We signed up for one session (with the intent of seeing how it went) before the first session was over it was clear that it was majorly imperative to sign up for more! Extremely impressed!

Absolutely, hands down the best coach I could've booked. My nephew went through a list and said "That's him! That's the coach I want!" My nephew must've known something I didn't, because after one session...maybe 10 minutes in I saw my nephews confidence go from zero to one hundred! He has such low self esteem but loves football so much and it's hard to get him out of his shell. Coach Justin not only instilled confidence in him, he helped him with his foot work, and hand/eye coordination which I thought would be extremely to do, especially in such a short amount of time. I look forward to working with Justin from here on out!

1 of my son's Christmas request was for me to get a trainer that could help him become a better Wide Receiver. I couldn't be more impressed with Justin Burks ability to focus on the little things that make the big things even better. He's always there and set up before we get there, which is 15 minutes early. My son has learned so much already, I can't wait to see him game ready on the field.
Choose Justin, you will not be disappointed💯💯💯

Coach Justin has been great, to include the emails and texts, which all have been prompt and articulate. For our first session I got there early and he was even earlier and already setting up. He quickly greeted us, talked with myself and my son, made a quick assessment and moved the training along, always having the next step ready to go. As the session progressed he stepped it up, just enough to push my son but not too much. His encouragement was continuous and the things he pointed out were spot on. We talked about our next session before we left. Once in our truck I looked over to my son who was tired at this point. I asked the parental, "So, what did you think?" He response was, "I really liked him!"

Justin is an excellent Coach! I have an 11 year old son that looks forward to each and every weeks practice, he keeps him up beat, challenged and motivated at all times. I highly recommend his session.

My son just finished his first training session with Justin and I was very impressed! Justin proved to be a top notch coach with awesome energy and an undeniable passion for what he does. I would highly recommend coach Justin Burks!

Very impressed with Coach Justin! He was personable and encouraging! The workout was grueling, but worth it. He made an effort to inquire about my son's goals and offered reminders through out the session to keep him going! I look forward to the next coaching session as he seemed knowledgeable and confident.

Coach Justin is an excellent coach; he is very passionate in what he does. You can tell that he loves coaching. He brought a high level of energy and enthusiasm that is contagious to my son whom he was training. Coach Justin knew how to communicate and made corrections to my son; he was not just pointing out mistakes, but he knows how to helps my son make corrections/adjustments and do it right, including giving tips and tricks for my son to remember it. Coach Justin is an excellent coach, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a coach. Thanks, Coach!

Coach Justin is very positive and has great energy. My son enjoyed working with Coach Justin and is looking forward to the next session.

Coach Justin has been working with my son for over a year now. He not only has made him a very good athlete but has also been a great role model for him. His sessions are geared toward the needs of the athlete with a huge focus on their individual weaknesses. Coach loves the sport and has shared a lot of his personal experiences playing the game with my son. This has really helped motivate my athlete with being more goal oriented. If your athlete wants to be the very best and work with a PRO, Justin is the coach for you!

Awesome first session! Coach Justin was great with my son. We will definitely be sticking with Coach Justin!

Was encouraging and still challenging with my son.
