"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."

"Xceed's golf fitness training is fantastically helpful. Their golf specific machines help bring out the best in me. At the first session I could feel myself being more grounded and more balanced while over the ball; with a more fluid swing and with more power with seemingly less effort because my every move was leveraged by being in sync during every phase of my swing. Golf pros have taught me techniques and strategies about how to play better golf, while these machines are teaching my body to coordinate my every movement to hit the ball straighter and longer. I can feel that my swing is more fluid. For anyone who plays a lot of golf, Xceed training program would be definitely worth your while. Two thumbs up!"
"When I realized that my weight had gotten out of control and I had no energy for anything, I decided to give Xceed Fitness a call. That was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. Russell is knowledgeable, courteous and very professional. After just a few weeks of the training program that was designed especially for me my energy level improved greatly and, the pounds began to come off. I would highly recommend Xceed Fitness Training to family, friends and, co-workers. I couldn't have made a better choice".
"I love your training program. Xceed is the best! Prior to my time of training with you, I was ready to give up my tennis game. I was regularly getting injured and my game was on a progressive down-slide, yet with your training expertise, my game has been lifted up two levels. I have never played better. Many thanks!"
"Russell was more than qualified to train me... I was always worried about lifting weights and stuff. Thought it would ruin my shot by adding more muscle in my arms, etc. Oh how naive I was. Russell's training improved my shot even more! He knows, man. He knows the human body. He knows how it works and how to work it. Come'on, two masters degree...that proves it already. Even the other trainers at 24 would come up to him asking questions - at least one every other day of my training!"
"Russell is compassionate about his care and understanding of conditioning great athletes. Knowledgeable to the extreme he gets results others do not."
