The “Rocky” mentality of the facility and his experience training other pro athletes prepared me for my pro-day where I ran the fastest short shuttle time in the draft. Ultimately, my goal of getting drafted was accomplished. I recommend Speed Strength and Tim Robertson to any football player who wants to get better.”

I never ran as fast (4.5), jumped as high (37 1/2 in.) or worked as efficiently as I did while working with Tim.

tennis-ball “Since I have been working with Tim, I have noticed a significant improvement in every area of my fitness. It all starts with Tim's passion about helping me achieve my goals. Along with that desire, his knowledge in fitness training has no limit. As a result, my tennis results have improved tremendously since I began training with Tim. I strongly believe that I would not be able achieve the accomplishments on the court without Tim and his expertise. Very few people in this profession possess the capabilities of helping an athlete in the same way that Tim has helped me.

“I have the highest regard for Speed Strength Systems from both a professional and personal level. As a physician who is very involved in Sports Medicine, I have a great appreciation for modern, sophisticated techniques used by the staff to ensure, in a safe way, that each athlete is able to come as close as possible to reaching his or her potential. The methodology used is state of the art, and the staff is highly skilled, very friendly and approachable. On a personal level, I have seen my son make fantastic strides in the past year. He has markedly improved his speed, strength, and most importantly, his confidence, which has helped him immeasurably not only on the basketball court, but also in the classroom. I will always be indebted to Speed Strength Systems, not only for the wonderful program they offer, but for the personal attention and interest they have shown my son and all of the other student athletes that train at Speed Strength Systems”
