Athletic Performance : Testimonials

Interview With AP Athlete Quincy Pondexter


"For the past 2 offseason's I have worked with David at athletic performance. My time there has been great, since day 1 I knew I was in good hands. David pointed out one of me weaknesses within 10 mins of our workout. It was something that I need to be strong to perform at a high level. That is the kind of thing they can provide at AP. They will not only get you in shape and get you stronger they will make sure you are strong for exactly what you need for your specific sport. I noticed a big difference in my next season, I was in the best shape of my life, I was bigger faster and stronger. Someone once asked me how I liked working out at AP and if it helped me at all. I simply responded, "I worked out here and went on to have the best season of my life, what do you think"

"Athletic Performance is the place where I go to get sport specific training in Fresno. Dave and Josh have helped me get into the best possible shape for when my season comes around. What I like about this place is that they listen to the athletes and how their body's are feeling. Then they construct a plan to get the best out of the athlete during each and every lift or running session. They work in tandem to make the athlete faster and stronger. I would highly recommend Athletic Performance for any age athlete, from kids to professionals. They will make a plan that fits you as an athlete and it's up to you to execute it. I will continue training at AP when I am back in Fresno because AP is my home."

"Dave and Josh significantly helped me improve my athletic performance when preparing for Fresno State's football pro day in 2015. After the 2014 football season, I had surgery on my shoulder which is not ideal when preparing for the NFL. Dave and the rehab staff were key factors in strengthening that shoulder so that I could be 100% by pro day. They were very conscientious of my injury and made sure to strengthen it slowly while achieving a good workout. Not only did they help with my shoulder recovery but they also increased my speed and agility. Josh is an expert when it comes to speed training as he and Dave were able to teach me the specific techniques required to run the pro day drills. As far as football training they also had retired and current NFL players to help with position specific fundamentals. Coach Pat Hill and Andrew Jackson provided some very useful tips when it came to the NFL. In all I was very lucky that a friend of mine recommended me to work with Dave and his great staff. They helped me reach my goals as a football player, as I was able to be selected in the 2015 NFL draft. Without the help of Dave my future could have ended up very differently, and not for the better. So I am very appreciative and thankful for Dave, Josh, Coach Hill, Andrew and everyone at Athletic Performance."

"I am happy to say that one of the best decisions I have made for the Hanford High Football program was teaming up with Athletic Performance of Fresno. In the past we have used other strength and conditioning programs. Dave and Cameron's workout was different from anything that we have done before. Our athletes were challenged every day. Throughout the offseason they never hit a plateau and the results were off the charts. Our coaches, players, and their families noticed a dramatic change in each of the players physic as well as their speed, explosiveness and flexibility. Anytime I had a question, Dave was there to answer it in detail. I can't wait to see the results of the hard work this season and look forward to the continued development of our players in the future. I highly recommend Athletic Performance to any athlete who wants to perform at the highest level!"

“Cameron and Dave really helped me prepare for my first NFL training camp with the Atlanta Falcons. Athletic performance provided a great environment to train in because it was intense, competitive, and the workouts translated to on the field strength. These guys have a great understanding of how to train athletes to maximize performance. I was able to put on noticeable muscle mass in the four months I was training at Athletic Performance and maintained a great conditioning level. I really enjoyed the small group training environment because it was challenging everyday and the workouts were tailored to meet each of our individual needs. The workouts were very detailed in terms of targeting weaknesses and gaining functional mobility and strength. Thanks Cameron and Dave.”

"If you are looking for intense and technique oriented training I recommend you try Athletic Performance Fresno. AP trainers goal is to make you a stronger, faster, healthy, even healthy looking, and explosive individual. Training at AP, I recognized growths in my numbers in the gym, running, and all over my body. Each day I trained at AP I looked better and felt better. While training at AP I learned the correct and very affective techniques that helped me become an overall sound athlete in the weight room and on the football field. Also, the techniques and body positions I learned from AP made a stronger and HEALTHY athlete which is very important. When doing intense training your body is very susceptible to injuries and trainers at AP do a great job of preventing them. When you go home sore it WILL NOT be because of nagging injuries but it WILL be because you trained HARD the RIGHT way. The individual attention on each athlete Cameron and Dave gives was critical to me becoming a better athlete. Everyone that trains at AP are given the full attention they need. The atmosphere there is very welcoming and perfect for training. AP trainers make sure that each and every day of training you leave a better but healthy athlete. I'm everyone who trains would appreciate that because I do. If you want to perform at the highest level, be healthy, look your best, GO to Athletic Performance and they will help you get it done. I have been in plenty of training systems and trust me when I say ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE WORKS."

"Athletic Performance provides great one on one training. They work with you directly and write a specific workout for your needs. I have gained so much core strength since I have started training. I am a professional track and field athletic and Dave has stepped up my strength to a whole new level. I walked in there with imbalances and weakness and Dave targeted those areas and built on them. I am now able to handle and much stronger work load on the track and stay injury free. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to seriously improve themselves in their sports."
