“Before going through this program my fitness was a big issue for me. Now I’m an important presence on the field. Soccer Fitness has helped me to achieve a gold medal for my age group in the Uxbridge Charity 10k race. Soccer Fitness not only helped me improve my physical game, but it has also helped me believe in myself and improve my mental game.”

I want to thank you and your team for your training program.
After getting complaints about my lack of speed from my coaches and feeling the same personally, my Dad found out about your program. I was hooked after the first session.
Everyone is noticing my increased speed and better form on the pitch. My Dad says your program is the best investment that he has made towards my development.
I am looking forward to continued progress.”

I just wanted to share Carolyn’s comment to you.
We went running last week and I talked to Carolyn during one of her 5 minute rest periods and explained that she wasn’t running “in form” and that her trainers are trying to teach her the science of running properly. We talked a bit more about it and she said she would be committed to run the entire next kilometre “in form”. Her fourth kilometre was 4 min 50 sec’s. She cut an entire minute off her run time! She was so excited she wanted to do another one. Her fifth kilometre was 4 min 40 sec’s.
She was so excited to see the difference that she wanted me to tell you how happy she was that your trainers were teaching her how to run properly!
Please let your trainers know that they are making a difference and Carolyn is so happy to be trained by them!”

I want to thank you for the training you provided. Your training in 2012 helped us achieve our promotion from “Elite” status to “OYSL” The team showed significant improvement in speed, agility, endurance and strength which was a contributing factor in winning the Indoor Ontario Cup, 2013. I highly recommend this training for any competative team. I will certainly use your training again.”

“After a winter of Richard working with my soccer team, I noticed that by the time our outdoor season started, my players’ strength and stamina had improved significantly. Thanks to Richard and his team for working our boys hard but always keeping it fun”
“Richard has been an asset to our team. He is hard working and is very committed to his clients.”
Our boys have been getting faster and stronger thanks to Richard and his training sessions.”
Lou Iaconetti, Coach, 1996 Boys Team
“That was a good session yesterday. Emily could barely walk from the garage to the front door of the house – I keep telling her that pain is a good thing!!”
“The reason for my email is to THANK YOU for the talk you had with my nephew. My brother-in-law called me last night after the training session and he told me that his son said that the coach wants me to ”start eating more vegetables and other foods so that I can be a stronger player.” He was so happy to hear this from his son. This is exactly what they needed!!!”
Toni Tamburro, Parent, 1999 Girl
“The training is excellent. It is geared specifically to the athlete’s needs. Richard is very good with the kids. He relates to athletes at their own age level.”
Minaz Moledina, Parent, 1994 Boy
“When I first heard about the program at Soccer Fitness, I was curious but skeptical. On a leap of faith, I registered my son, Jonathan, with the hope that his game play would improve.”
“This has turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. In subtle but very effective ways I have seen where Jon’s dexterity and balance during the games has improved. His stamina and speed have increased dramatically and we hope for even greater things as we continue with Richard at Soccer Fitness.”
“Jon looks forward to the sessions as well as Richard finds ways of making it fun as well as being effective.”
Great stuff guys!!
Roy Davis, Parent, 1997 Boy
“My son was blessed with good athletic ability and pace. As he got older, I noticed he could not sustain the intensity level required to play soccer at a high level. Since bringing him to Richard, he’s now acquired great strength and stamina to complement his ability and pace and has taken his game to another level through the soccer-specific training he has been receiving from Richard.”
“Thank you guys”
Carlos Nicholls, Parent, 1993 Boy
“When my dad heard about Soccer Fitness he told me, at first I did not want to go because I did not know what it was I thought it will be boring my dad told me to try a few classes. The first class with Richard we did not use much of the ball it was more about fast feet. Over a few classes with Richard I developed speed and agility. Richard made the classes more fun and entertaining as I competed against my friends and myself. I really enjoy coming to Soccer Fitness and I am glad my dad told me to try a few classes.”
Christopher Jaggarnath, Player, 1997 Boy
“After spending a short time at Soccer Fitness, my son’s confidence in running has increased two-fold. My son became confident enough to try out for the school track team. To his surprise he discovered he was the fastest runner in his grade. This achievement is a direct result of the training provided by Richard.”
John Bertolo, Parent, 1994 Boy
“If you want to see quicker results in your soccer training then I highly recommend the sport-specific training sessions from Soccer Fitness. My son has been attending 1 hour sessions in a small group for about 15 weeks. The sessions started out with general agility, co-ordination and strength training and as the group improved the sessions have advanced to more soccer-specific training.”
“In the last 4 – 6 weeks I have noticed a definite improvement in my son’s abilities on both the practice and game field. The first thing I noticed was that he is more balanced and moves more fluidly. Also, he is more consistent in his performance. I have received comments from some of the other parents about his improvement.”
“I believe that the small group sessions have allowed my son to be able to absorb more skills from his regular soccer technical training sessions and apply them during the games.”
Philip Seguin, Parent, 1997 Boy
“Our children, both under the age of 10, have participated in more than 3 soccer fitness programs with Richard Bucciarelli. This program offers a variety of positive attributes toward our childrens’ better health, which is most likely what all parents seek for their children. It is well structured and organized. Richard Bucciarelli shows great enthusiasm when using his experience, knowledge and professionalism to create a positive atmosphere. In result gave our children eagerness, willingness and just another something to look forward to every week. As players, it has improved our childrens’ confidence, endurance and strength and coordination. All which have contributed to a great improvement on the pitch.”
“Thank you Richard and staff.”
Tanya and Joe Geraci, Parents, 1999 and 2000 Girls
“In a nutshell, the program that Richard operates is brilliant. We have participated in Power Running for 2 years and my children, aged 9 and 5, absolutely love it. They work hard, gain athletic skills not taught elsewhere, and best of all, their smiles say it all and they can’t wait for the next week. The support coaches are equally wonderful and this program is highly recommended to any parent.”
Jeff Goodfield, Parent, 1999 and 2002 Girls
“We received Alyssa’s letter from the OSA today and are very excited that she has been selected for the Fall Try-out Phase for the Regional Team as an under aged player.”
“Your fitness training (Power Running & Soccer Fitness) has certainly aided in her development and confidence. Thanks again for all the enthusiasm you coach with. You really know how to make it fun and get the best out of Alyssa.”
