Testimonial Tuesday comes from our athlete Eric Jett. He talks about all the reasons he comes to Performance One. He says, “I first came to Performance One to attend a USAW seminar that Coach Joe was putting on. I had just moved to the Valley, and was looking for a gym as well. Coming from a strength athletics background including powerlifting and strongman, I knew what I was looking for in a place to train. I needed a place with a ton of plates that didn’t mind me dropping them every now and again. The second I walked into the seminar, I knew Performance One was the place for me. I mean, bumper plates everywhere, shouting is encouraged, this is my kind of place! And while I was deadset that I was a strongman/powerlifter, I knew my weightlifting game needed to be stepped up. I knew there wasn’t a better place to do that than Performance One, under the tutelage under a coach like Joe Micela, who has taken athletes to the Olympics. And I was right! Coaches Joe and Craig have helped me tremendously. With their coaching, I have learned the nuances of weightlifting. How to set the back, drive with the legs, how to feel the bar in your hands; all things I thought I knew, but they taught me how little I actually knew. The intricate plan Joe developed specifically for me has helped increase my lifts every time we test. My squat has gone from around 270kg to nearly 300kg in the time I’ve been training at Performance One, my clean and jerk has gone up 20kg, and my snatch has improved by around 30kg. These are improvements I could not see if I was trying to do this by myself. Speaking of “by myself,” you’ll notice at Performance One that the atmosphere is a little different. All the athletes are very encouraging, cheering you on for a big lift, ready to pick you up and give you advice after a missed lift, even video an attempt so you can analyze it later. This is something you definitely won’t see anywhere else. Really the only bad thing about Performance One is that Joe is a Philadelphia Eagles fan. 🙂 lol All of this together make Performance One THE place to train in the Valley.” We appreciate Eric and his honesty.
