Client Reviews

Our son gets so much from each session, we have seen him improve right from the start. Coach Troy is great to work with and really knows how to connect and teach while challenging him each week .

Highly recommend

Great workout. Coach Troy provides a great atmosphere and cares about all of his athletes.

Excellent !

Coach Troy did a great job with my son Dylan getting his prepared for football season:)

Coach Troy has been working with my son for a couple of weeks now. We are so glad that we began working with him. He has exceeded our expectations in every way! Coach Troy has spend the time needed to work with my son to show him what he needs to do to improve his athleticism. He has gone above and beyond to provide direction and home exercise programs in order to help my son continue his improvement on his own, so that the training sessions stay high energy and high efficiency. It's amazing to see how much can get done in 1 hour.

Did a great first class will be back in summer when the football fields open so it can be a lil closer to Rochester Hills, Michigan

Very informational, approachable, and helpful, can tell that he cares about his athletes!

Coach Troy is an outstanding coach for speed training.

One of the things that sets Coach Troy apart is his ability to tailor his training programs to the specific needs of each individual athlete. He understands that every athlete is different and has unique strengths and weaknesses, and he works closely with each athlete to develop a personalized training plan that will help them achieve their goals.

Coach Troy's training programs are also highly effective because they are based on a comprehensive understanding of the science of speed training. He knows exactly what types of exercises and drills will help athletes improve their speed, agility, and power, and he incorporates these into his training programs in a way that maximizes results.

Coach Troy is very professional and prompt and has a great facility. He is very motivating and I can see in a short time the development of physical and technical skills in my grandson. We made a great choice.

Coach Troy did an amazing job communicating with my son. His program definitely offers the advancement my son is looking for!

Coach Troy is a great coach. My son loves how he has a calm demeanor but works you really hard. He is very unique and works tailored to your needs. Highly recommend.

Absolutely awesome atmosphere, super constructive and I could see results almost instantaneously.

Great training! Very professional and knowledgeable. I will definitely be continuing to work with Troy!

Troy has been very accommodating and my son enjoys working with him in a fun environment. He has seen gains after only a few sessions. Several of his lacrosse teammates also train with Troy.

Coach Tory was great! After the first session I know that he will help take my game to the next level.

My kids are loving the sessions with Coach Troy. They have improved a ton in only a month, and they come out of every session with tons of energy and a positive outlook. Troy has found a way to connect with the boys on an individual level, and is pushing them hard, but doing it in a way that keeps the kids engaged. Looking forward to seeing how much more progress can be realized this summer!

Coach Troy is a great coach, he is very easy to understand and he knows what he is doing when it comes to speed training. After only 1 session, I can tell I am going to become the best version of myself for this upcoming season by training with him.

I’m driving almost an hour to have my son and daughter train with Troy. As young, multi-sport athletes they are building a foundation around speed, agility and explosiveness. It’s been tough finding someone that is knowledgeable, fun and consistent when it comes to coaching which Troy fits all of those requirements. It’s also difficult finding good coaches for anything around here, so you are on the edge of lucky when you train here. Children also need to learn how to be coached, how to listen and apply that knowledge. Troy breaks down those barriers that you often fight as a parent as hey, kids never want to listen to you right? Anyway, great spot, try Troy out sometime.

Coach Troy is doing an amazing job teaching the fundamentals of football to my 11 year old. The training is organized and purposeful. Best of all is my 11 year old loves it!

When looking for someone to work with our son who is preparing for football camps this summer, we chose Coach Burrell due to his background and the positive reviews we read from other parents and athletes. We are so glad that we made this choice! Troy has really pushed our son and he is seeing big gains after just a few sessions. We are looking forward to seeing how much progress he makes over the summer months in preparation for camps but also the fall season. We would highly recommend Coach Burrell’s performance training.

We’ve only worked with Coach Troy one session so far but my son came away feeling more confident. Coach took the time to show him how to properly do everything and was very patient with him. It’s great to see how well he works with young kids. Definitely give him a try, he is well trained and educated.

I want to sincerely thank Troy for bringing back the fire, passion, and confidence TJ had hibernating. TJ was so excited after his assessment that he was prepared to go another 2 hours. TJ was so hyped that he could not stop talking about how Coach Troy kept challenging him to go Higher, Further, and Faster!!! Coach Troy the energy you displayed allowed TJ's mind and body to erupt with an intensity he had not felt since he was in High School. With your knowledge, skill & motivation, TJ is prepared to be laser focused and execute your training plan so he can give the EMU coaches that OMG moment when he demonstrates everything he learned from your training sessions. TJ blew us away with his no-stop talk about how he & Coach Troy connected on a level he has not experienced before; TJ cannot wait to get started! We can't wait to witness TJ's development. Thank You Coach Troy

Coach Burrell is a good coach and goes really into detail when he’s teaches

My daughter has been a competitive distance runner for many years but was looking to improve her form and increase foot speed to transition into middle distance. Coach Troy offered lots of professional advice and a great diverse and dynamic workout.

Coach Troy is detailed in his training approach.

After my son trained with Coach Troy for his first session, he is really motivated to train more regularly. Great training coach Troy!!

Fantastic, we are looking forward to the next session

My boys 1 session with coach Troy with excellent. They really enjoy their training with Troy. I ask the boys for their opinion on coach Troy. My 13yr compared him to his first trainer. Their are both similar but coach Troy focus on make sure we are doing everything correct. So mom I would like to continue training with him. My 11yr follower his big brother but he did say mom our training started on time. That’s something you looking for and I like him 🙂. Next, sessions
Thanks Coach T

Coach Troy was so positive and passionate about helping my son improve his skills. He enthusiastically pushed my son to do his best, and even though some of the drills were challenging, my son had fun and looks forward to his next session. I would highly recommend Coach Troy to anyone looking to enhance their performance!

Coach Troy has been excellent! He is quite the specialist in his field. Troy is very good at communicating technical details with children. He also has quite the knack of finding the right balance between fun and hard work during his sessions. Basically you work hard through the entire session, however, Coach Troy manages to inject the right kind of energy in order to make all of that hard work feel a lot more like fun.

This coach was amazing I have never seen a coach like this he is so good at what he is doing and after the first session I felt like my kids already have become athletes

My daughter and I were impressed with Coach Troy right from the start of our first session. He took the the time to get to know my daughter and to understand what her end goals are for the program. He walked through what the session would entail and he made the session fun and engaging. We can’t recommend Coach Troy enough!

My 10 year old son had his first training session with Coach Troy. It was a great experience all around. My son learned a lot in his first session and more importantly had a great time. Coach Troy is very detailed and a great motivator. I would recommend him to any young athlete who wants to improve their physical and mental abilities.


Our experience with Coach Troy was excellent!! My son expressed interest in continuing to learn more about himself and his desire for developing new skills after completing his first football season this fall.

At the initial assessment we knew we found a great fit with Coach Troy who shares a positive energy for discovery and growth, is extremely knowledgeable / highly skilled, and inspires motivation throughout. Coach Troy even welcomed me to join in the fun! My son is looking forward to further training with Coach Troy this offseason.

I really liked his training. He ran with me through drills, assessed my athletic performance and determined what would be the best position for me to walk on. Being at my current age and having no experience, he really is a head start in helping me reach what I want to reach. The grind is real and with the things he's making me do, I've never done in my 5 years of weight training. He's really targeting those muscles that make you fire and boost your speed. So far on my second day, I've improved significantly and was able to identify the exact stretches and exercise I need to work on. Plus he makes me feel like I'm at home with those fancy water bottles and other accommodations like extra running pairs for me to use. If you want someone with a good personality and will commit to substantially improving you and only interested in helping you or your child achieve their goal you are in the right place from my own subjective assessment. You don't know until you give it a shot so hit him up and see if you or your child sees a difference. In the end, I'll have to say that I felt like he cared about me and my performance and really did something not many can do which is see my goals and getting me closer. Thanks bro.

Great coach! He is great with my child; positive, energetic and focused on improving technique and skill. He is able to get the best out of my son who looks forward to his training sessions. Best coach we have had any of our kids with.

great attitude, good teaching ability, related well with Jayden

Coach Troy has been absolutely incredible. His attention to detail and encouragement has been instrumental in George’s development as a player. His teaching and honing the skills of core fundamentals and positional training has greatly improved George’s game.. thank you

Coach Troy was fantastic. He is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated to improving each and every one of his clients.
We will definitely spread the word!

Great Coach knows the game and what it takes. From day 1 he’ll get straight to work on improving your craft with a plan.

Coach Troy gave my son Domenick all his undivided attention at his first session. Coach Troy really was focused and steered my son in a good direction right from the start. We look forward to continuing coaching with Troy and seeing all the good things that will follow and all new improvements that are possible for my son.

Coach Troy was outstanding! My 10 and 12 year boys really enjoyed working with him and are looking forward to more sessions with him. He was focused on working towards their goals while being fun and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend him!

Coach Troy was fantastic for my 9 year old son’s first session. The attention to detail and stress on proper mechanics just confirmed we are doing the right thing for our young athlete.

Engaged, knowledgeable, and focused. He maintains these attributes while keeping it fun and encouraging as my sons are 12 and 9. They will push themselves for Coach Troy.

Am currently a college athlete looking to develop my skills. Troy is the best in the business hands down. Brings out the best in me. The attention and detail Troy brings to the table is phenomenal! If your an athlete looking to perform at the next level, book this man ASAP.

Coach Troy was incredible. He was engaging and attentive. You can tell by his approach that he has a vested interest in the success of his trainees. He's very knowledgeable and offers encouraging recommendations that led to immediate improvement in form and techniques. exactly the type of trainer i want for son. Thanks coach

We were so fortunate to find Coach Troy! This is exactly the training may son Alex needs and I can't imagine a better coach than Coach Troy to get him prepared and challenged for football combines. Alex is a Junior and has been working out with speed training and drills with a small class, but the individualized instruction that Alex has already received from Coach Troy is tremendous. Alex really enjoyed the first session and responded well to Coach Troy and his style. His facilities are just what we need. I Highly Highly recommend Coach Troy . . . just donate take the 2X a week sessions we quickly committed to get him prepared for the football combines and camps. Bill Whalen

1st visit with coach Troy was excellent. He was very professional and took the time to listen to our needs and listened to my son. His program for the day was well planned and effective for my son’s needs. My son really enjoyed the challenge and learning experience and plan to get more work in with coach Troy.

Coach Troy is great! After only 1 session I can tell my speed and agility are going to improve.

Took my Son Noah for his first workout with Coach Troy today!! Amazing atmosphere from a sincere and genuine Coach who is interested in the athletic growth and development of young athletes but most importantly, the growth and development of the true game changer which is CHARACTER!! Troy is not only knowledgeable but most importantly INSPIRING!! As his former High School Coach, I’m truly proud of the person he is and aspires to become! Great job Troy and we can’t wait to come back!! Sincerely, Coach Kindle!

Coach Troy was by far one of the best coaches I’ve ever had. He went through agility, speed, catching and helped me and my cousin see what we really could do. He explained everything thoroughly to make sure that we would know what we were doing. If anyone is looking for a trainer that knows what he is doing, GO to coach Troy!

Coach troy is very skilled and knowledgeable in sports training. I must say that I was highly impressed by the level of professionalism, positive energy and expertise not only in positional training but in areas of nutrition, recruiting as well as strength and conditioning. My son absolutely enjoyed training with Troy which is most important and I highly recommend him!

Only one session with Troy so far and I already see a marked improvement in my daughter's confidence and skills. On a freshman football team with 47 players, the coaches don't have a lot of time to spend improving one individual's techniques. He was able to quickly peg areas to improve, work with her on drills and techniques to strengthen her skills in those areas, and send her off more confident in her abilities. Though she went for football training, I can see how what he is teaching her will also benefit her in fielding for softball too. She's looking forward to further training.

Coach Troy was great! His training is definitely top notch. My son came with away with improvements after just one session. I would highly recommend Coach Troy!

Today was my 12 year old's first session with Coach Troy. My son was nervous, but immediately felt comfortable with Troy. Troy was patient and positive but still got a good workout in. Cannot wait until the next workout. We are very confident my son will learn a lot from Coach Troy.

One of the best workout my high school son has has ever, would recommend Troy to anyone looking to gain speed and agility. So personable and very engaging with a teen is not easy and Troy did it easily!

Coach Troy is Great! My son Andrew had his first workout with him and learned a lot in just one day. Andrew is looking forward to his next training session. Coach Troy’s knowledge for the game is going to help Andrew in every aspect of the game and training for years to come.

Just had a first session for my son with Coach Troy. Great foundation and really excited for my son to work with Troy and see where he can take him....

Coach Troy was awesome!!!! My son wants to play receiver at the collegiate level and Coach Troy was a blessing with all the insight and knowledge he has. We have trained with other coaches but Coach Troy is the best by far!!!

Coach has been doing a great job with my son Ethan. We've had 3 sessions thus far and will be looking to keep weekly upkeep before the 2019 Fall season begins. More updates to come as we progress together.

Coach Troy is awesome teacher. I learned a lot about the game from a professional's point of view. We also did drills that helped improve my overall skill set as a W.R. Looking forward to our next session.

Great first session. My son had a great time. Coach Troy knows how to challenge him to be better while making the training fun. Highly recommended. My son looks forward to his next session.

My son just had his first session with Coach Troy. It was great - he developed a great rapport and was encouraging and positive. Troy has a lot of knowledge and my son can tell he can learn a lot and it will improve his skills significantly. He works him hard and gets a lot done in a hour. Well worth it! We are signing up for more sessions. My son is a sophomore and a receiver and corner on his high school team.

My 10 year old son just completed his first workout with Coach Troy. He came home with a huge smile on his face and said “that was so much fun! I really like him!” He then spent the next 10+ minutes describing the drills he ran through and the timed test he completed. He is already excited to see how he will do when he’s retested by Coach Troy at the end of the summer. We can already tell this is going to be a great relationship!

Troy has shown a natural feel for the game and has a very high football IQ to go along with his ability to be a play-maker.
