"My experience at XCEED was life changing. The knowledge gained through my one on one and small group sessions helped me reach a point bio-mechanically that allowed me to elevate my game to the next level. From training sessions focused on essential movements such as landing, single leg explosion, stride length, and the all important stride frequency; I was able to significantly improve my times in both the 40 yd dash, the short shuttle and the vertical leap, in addition to enhancing my position specific movements necessary to succeed on the football field."

"XCEED fitness played a huge role in my success as a college and professional athlete. Before leaving to play college football at the University of Tennessee I worked with Russell Deane. The work I did with Russell was ahead of its time. I was completely prepared to take my game to the next level. The approach Russell used of incorporating my whole body and working every muscle large and small with sport and position specific movements was also a huge part of why I left college without any surgeries or serious injuries. I recommend XCEED Fitness for anyone trying take their game to the next level, or anyone trying to improve their overall athletic ability. The only regret I have is not finding out about XCEED Fitness sooner."
"My time and training sessions at XCEED with Russell were key in the success of my college football career. The position-specific drills and exercises helped me make huge strides in not only my strength and speed, but also in my explosiveness, balance, agility and athleticism. Throughout my time with Russ, I was able to drop my 40-yard dash time from a 5.45 to a 5.1, raise my bench press and power clean by 30lbs, and my squat by 50lbs. These improvements were made while decreasing my body fat from 22% to 16.2% at 265lbs. This all-encompassing training gave me an edge that helped me become a three-year starting center and a third-team all-ivy selection at Columbia."

"Working with Russell for two weeks I got my 40 yard dash time down from a 4.52 to a 4.42 and my 20 yard shuttle time down from a 4.22 to a 4.16. I went from being ranked the 57th corner-back in the nation to being the #16 ranked corner-back. Russell has done me well and I recommend him to anyone who wants to get better."
