Working with XCEL was very beneficial for my offseaosn development. I would recommend it it to any athlete in the area who wanted to increase their speed. What stood out the most about working with the team at XCEL was their focus on perfecting my running form each session. Start out I was a mid-4.6 guy (40y dash) and i was able to shave my time down to a 4.53. Not only did they help with my speed, but they also helped me increase my overall power production and strength. Looking forward to continuing my training when I return from Europe.

I started working with Chris the summer after my sophomore year. Our main goal at first was to fix my running form for track and agility training for basketball. My running form improved immensely the next season and I was able to become more of an asset on my basketball team. My junior track season came with a new set of problems and I developed tendonitis in my knees. Chris was there every step of the way to advise me and always had my best interests in mind. We worked on rehabilitation and strength training the summer after my junior season. Chris was extremely flexible with my crazy senior schedule. There would be many times we would be figuring out workout plans the night before the week started. He always found ways to get me in the gym and working, such as giving me online workouts when I couldn’t make it to Excel. I came into my senior track season pain free and in the best physical shape I’d ever been. Getting this early jump on conditioning and strength training helped me achieve my goal of breaking my school’s 400 meter dash record by my 4th track meet of the season. Just about every track meet I would achieve a new PR in the 100, 200, or 400. At the end of my season I walked away with all new PR’s and two state track medals. In the course of one season, my 100 PR went from 12.85 to 12.69, my 200 PR went from 27.40 to 26.42, and my 400 PR went from 1:00.73 to 58:58. At 3A MSHSAA State Track I won 7th place in the 100 and 5th place in the 400. I could not have reached these accomplishments without Chris’s guidance and commitment to my wellbeing. I also received the women’s track and field MVP award for my team, as I was top point scorer throughout the season. I am forever grateful to Excel for being instrumental in my amazing track career.
