When people think about personal training they often think in terms of “good looking body” or weight loss however there are a lot more to personal training than that. Below you will find a testimonial from Jay Shuler which shines light on the overlooked benefits from having a personal trainer to help you get back in the game. This is not to toot our own horn but merely to remind people about the importance of protecting our body. Remember, we only get one.
Testimonial for David Buchanan by Jay Shuler
In autumn of 1993 I was involved in a racing shunt that left me with a broken left Femur and fractured knee and ankle. I had aspirations to compete for the Sports Car Club of America national championship the next year in a brand new car. I was looking for a miracle.
My crew chief was working with NFL Great Walter Payton and had recommended a trainer who was working with quarterback Jim McMahon. The trainer was David Buchanan. I contacted Dave and he started my physical rehabilitation and training that October. Dave’s program and motivation sped my recovery and built my athletic strength. He has diverse experience with athletes in a large variety of competitive sports.
Dave’s methods did work miracles. I was able to go testing in early March and finished second at my first race in April. My doctor was hoping I would be walking without crutches by spring. Dave was making me do burpees by then!
It’s been interesting to be performance trained by Dave for a number of years. The exercises he utilized 20 years ago are now becoming popular – “The New Thing”. I feel better and stronger than I did years ago. My balance, coordination, reflex and reaction speed allow me to perform at my peak for an entire race weekend.
Training with Dave and utilizing the awesome facility and equipment at Chicago Fit Life, I look forward to competing professionally in the 2015 Trans Am Series – America’s Road Racing Series. I am very thankful for Dave’s help and expertise in helping me reach my goals. Thanks Dave!
