“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Jeff for many years and he has always been a very valuable asset to me as a soccer coach. His insight and expertise in functional movement is second to none. He brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to the athletic world”.
Chris Baer, Executive Director of Coaching / Ohio Premier Soccer Club
As an athlete who puts his body through extreme conditions, I demand that I get into and stay in top shape. I have found Jeff Turner instrumental in improving my strength, endurance and all around fitness. His dedication to his clients is beyond the norm and set the bar very high for others to follow. His guidance in nutrition, and overall recovery was paramount to me as a professional surfer and he is by far the best I have ever worked with in this field.

Our 3 kids trained with Jeff throughout the fall, winter, and spring, while they were playing their club sports. During this time, we had no injuries, which is unusual! Jeff told us how he takes a “movement first” approach which reduces injury and speed and strength would follow. That alone makes it worth it! Plus my kids loved the trainings. Jeff was encouraging and increased their confidence in themselves. They were pumped up when they were able to do things they didn’t know they could do at the training sessions which carried over to their sports.! Mary plays club volleyball and lacrosse. She is a setter in volleyball, and we saw noticeable improvement in her speed to the ball, getting her body to the right place quicker and under more control. She is a defender in lacrosse, and we also saw more speed in her play. She was better able to move her body and line up with players. She was a thin 11 year old when Jeff started working with her and she is now stronger, with defined muscles in her legs and arms! Amazing! Jack, 14 is a setter in club volleyball and we saw tremendous increased speed in getting to the ball, and getting his body in the right position to make a good set. There were nearly zero times in which he wasn’t able to get to the second ball and had to ask for help. He was also stronger physically to jump higher, swing stronger, and set better. Clare,16 plays soccer and Jeff showed her how to use her entire body more effectively to make quicker bursts to the ball, and to have more balance so that she does not get knocked off of the ball. Clare’s leg muscles, which were already pretty big, are so incredibly strong and muscular now! Her core is so much stronger, too. Jeff had a huge impact on Clare’s confidence in herself as an athlete. Amy Proctor
Jeff has to be one of the best in the world at movement, strength and conditioning. He helped me immeasurably, and in more ways than I can enumerate, to become the player that I am. Brian McBride, Professional Soccer Player
“The thing I have always appreciated about Jeff is his commitment to form and function. He is excellent at applying his vast strength and conditioning knowledge to the fundamental movement patterns that are so often missing in our adolescent and young adult athletes. The absence of these fundamental movements can many times show up in the form of an acute injury or an overuse condition. Jeff’s ability to identify and rectify these problem areas is a great asset to athletes of all ages!”

As a professional soccer athlete my biggest asset is my body. Although I have been blessed with tremendous natural ability, Fit2Play has allowed me physically to achieve things I never could have achieved on my own. Jeff’s masterful ability to customize programs to meet a specific athletes needs coupled with his commitment to excellence, is why I would not hesitate in Recommending Fit2Play® to any athlete trying to reach the next level.” Thank you Fit2Play!

Fit2Play was the best training I had in my athletic career. The program put me in the best shape I have ever been in. The need for speed, strength and power at this level was much greater and Jeff prepared me for the next level.

I believe that involving Fit2Play in my lacrosse team’s pre-season training was a real turning point for our program. First, players developed strength that helped them in all aspects of their game. It convinced players that muscular strength improves their performance on the field. Developing stabilizing muscles and focusing on core work enabled players to regain their balance quickly, move and accelerate quickly, and helped to reduce injuries. The in-season workouts that were primarily based on agilities and footwork developed players’ proper running techniques which not only made them run faster, but more efficiently. Footwork, core strength, and speed training are essential skills in lacrosse which had been overlooked prior to Fit2Play’s involvement in our program. I thought that conditioned players simply could run long distances. Now, we emphasize core strength, dynamic warm-ups, and sprint work to prepare our athletes for competition. I feel that the skills and techniques Fit2Play brought to our program has made our team one of the strongest, best-conditioned teams in Ohio. It’s not a coincidence that our team has won seven state titles since participating in Fit2Play and changing our training strategy. Furthermore, my athletes often comment that they are well-prepared for Division 1 programs because their high school training is compatible to their college training. I would highly recommend Fit2Play® for the athlete interested in taking their game to the next level. Wendy Pinta Upper Arlington High School Varsity Lacrosse Head Coach
I want you to know it means a great deal to me how much you helped me get Fit2Play over this past year. When I went into retirement, a lot of it was my life was changing with my new family, but a part of it was the feeling my body was past its prime…that I couldn’t keep up with the young kids anymore. That has changed dramatically since I started working out with you. All of the things you preached to me and we worked on day in and day out (speed, agility, quickness, balance, coordination, flexibility, strength and power) were improved upon to the point where I knew I could compete again at a high level. I could not have helped the Kickers break their record for most shutouts in a season (it was 9, we had 13) earn 1st Team All A-League, A-League Defender of the Year, and be offered contracts by DC United, Dallas Burn, and a long-term from the Kickers without your knowledge and motivation. In many ways, I was lucky to have a good coach and a good team in Richmond, but there is no doubt in my mind your contribution to my success this season is more than all of the other factors combined and then some. I have always worked hard in the off-season, but this year you helped work smarter. You are the best I’ve come across, and you deserve all of the success you will ever receive. I am forever grateful to you. Scott Cannon
Throughout my career, I have seen a variety of training programs. Jeff and the Fit2Play system stood out as one of the best. I noticed a difference in my quickness, sharpness, strength, balance, and overall ability. It took my game to another level. My success was a direct result of this system. As a coach, I will take some of the principles that I learned and apply them in my own training programs. Thanks, Jeff. Dante Washington Former Major League Soccer

Jeff showed me what to do, how to do it, and I never looked back…thanks JT. Cindy Margolis Internet Star, Host, Spokesperson, Supermodel, Actress, Producer, Author, Mother
Jeff was a tremendous help to me as a trainer and helped prepare me for one of my best all-time seasons. Katie Smith OSU/Big Ten, WNBA and Olympic basketball superstar (3x Olympic Gold Medalist)
I wanted an enjoyable activity for my son that would keep him active, engaged, and teach him how to move his body efficiently. That’s when I turned to Fit2Play. Even though I have been a personal trainer for 18 years and will help my son with strength and conditioning, Jeff Turner is a true expert when it comes to teaching foundational movement patterns to athletes, which is critical to their development, and needs to come before the weight room. Jeff has helped my son reduce his risk of injury and become quicker on the soccer field. More importantly, are the new skills he can use the rest of his life for any activity he chooses. Thanks Jeff! Greg Baughman
I have known Jeff Turner for 30 years. Over that period, I have not met a more knowledgeable, conscientious and meticulous trainer. The results he has consistently achieved with all types of athletes are nothing short of spectacular. Bill Laich MD, PhD Reconstructive and Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Sports Medicine, Sports Science
