"In the sport of professional boxing, there are many myths when it comes to conditioning. Before I met Jeff Nailen, I was stuck in the monotony of the typical boxing workout. Running five miles before sunrise and a boxing workout in the evening was normal for me to be in condition for upcoming bouts. I had tried different workouts and diets but it was a lot of guesswork on how to put a good program together.
"Working with Jeff has been very beneficial to my boxing career. We started working together in early 2008. Jeff took the guesswork out of how to eat for performance and he applied advanced training techniques such as plyometrics and interval training. Jeff played a very important part as I prepared for one of my biggest fights to date with the "Pride of Albuquerque" Ray Sanchez III. Not only did Jeff help maximize my strength, speed, and power, he also helped me make weight a lot easier with the specialized diet that he put together for me. Jeff's positive energy and outlook also helped me to want to do my best and his use of sports psychology helped me enter the ring with supreme confidence. In the Ray Sanchez fight in which I was the underdog, I scored a third-round TKO to score one of my biggest wins to date.
"Thanks to Jeff, I enter my bouts with the confidence that I am ready to do battle knowing that I am ready physically and mentally to perform at my best. Having known Jeff since early 2008, I consider Jeff to not only be a top notch personal trainer, but also a very close friend. I recommend Jeff Nailen and his holistic approach to anybody who wants to lose weight, get in shape, or as in my case, prepare for competition. It will be a choice that you will not regret!"
