    Read a testimonial from one of his clients:

    “Powerlifting became a passion of mine about 4 years ago. Since then I have competed numerous times, consistently placing within the top 3. Yet, I did not feel as if I was hitting the totals I should have been. I had spent time being taught by some of the top powerlifters and researchers in the powerlifting community, but I was still missing lifts that I should have been hitting.

    I came to Iron Empire to use the brand new state of the art facility and equipment. I did not expect to work with the trainers, nor did I expect to learn anything new from them. After speaking with John I decided to train with him one day. In one session John was able to point out my weak spots on each lift, explain to me how they were affecting my strength, and implement a new technique to correct my weaknesses. I felt an immediate difference in muscle activation and as a result my strength increased. I am continuing to learn each time I talk to John, and I am excited to see where my lifts go from here.

    Outside of training for strength, John has also helped me recover from my multiple shoulder surgeries and the continuous tightness that is a result from them. Between stretching techniques and accessory lifts John keeps me feeling great between workouts, this allows me to ensure I am able to hit my lifts each day I come into Iron Empire. John has changed the way I feel about my workouts and I highly recommend him to anyone, beginner to advanced, who wants to ensure they are maximizing their performance.”
