Taylor (School of Mines Soccer)
I originally started going to Illite Fitness because I needed something that would put me ahead of the other soccer players who had started doing the same kind of training I had, such as technical training. Before I went for the first time, I was nervous and hesitant because I didn’t know what to expect, but as soon as I started, I knew that it would end up being very good for me and my teammates. The exercises are hard, but with each one we did, Aaron explained how it related to the game and why it was going to help us. After just a couple weeks of going, I already felt stronger on the ball, and way faster than I had been before. After going for about a month, I had started to really enjoy going because Drew and Aaron made it so much fun. I was going to improve my game, but even more so I was going because it is fun and I enjoy it. I could be doing a workout that was super hard and made me want to cry, but I would still be smiling anyway. The environment they have created at Illite Fitness makes working out surprisingly fun and easy to want to come back. Without having trained with Illite Fitness, I don’t know where I would be with my game, and I’m very positive I would not have improved nearly as much as I have. I am so thankful for Illite and everything they have done for me.
