I signed up for Coach Hansen's program after getting frustrated with hitting some plateaus in my training that I was doing.  Since joining, I have seen significant strength gains and I PR a major exercise almost every couple of weeks.  The best part about this program is the attention us athletes get.  Though I may be  in Chicago, I still feel a coaching presence everyday and hold myself accountable because I don't want to let Coach Hansen down.  I would and have recommended this program for everyone that is looking to make significant gains and  want a challenge in their training regiment.

I have been using Coach Hansen's programming for almost four months now, and I have already seen significant gains in my lifts (shirts fit a lot tighter through the chest and sleeves now too, no complaints there). And while seeing the gainz has been awesome, it is almost equally as awesome knowing all I have to do is show up to the gym and lift. No more planning workouts, no more wandering aimlessly around the gym trying to decide what I want to work out on a given day. Coach Hansen's programming is targeted to my goals, easy to follow, and results driven. It is easily one of the best investments I've ever made into my personal fitness.

Every day was a challenge, but the results I've seen on and off the field have been amazing. In less than six months I went from bottom of the line up to one of the biggest power hitting guys on the team. Which ever program you decide to do it will change the way you think and feel about what it means train!

As a hockey player, my fitness and training off ice are key to my performance on ice. Darren not only has given me a program which improves my fitness for my sport, but has increased my fitness for my second love, Olympic Lifting and CrossFit. One of the top coaches out there, and the best programming that I've ever followed, I would recommend Hansen Athletics to any athlete, weightlifting or not, to improve their health, performance, and overall fitness.
