DON'T JUST TAKE OUR WORD FOR IT
"What I can tell you from my experience is that Dan and Jeff are two of the best coaches I have ever had. Jeff, who is also a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine, has helped me focus on the rehabilitation of a knee injury that kept me from training for thirteen weeks. Jeff's patience and knowledge helped to make my knee stronger and gave me the confidence I needed to start training again without the nagging worry of my knee failing me. I am forever grateful for the time Jeff and I spent one on one together!"
