Nick Bellore – Detroit Lions
“Training with Dave has helped make my career in the National Football League. Each year I am amazed how my body continues to get stronger and how good I feel each and every season going into training camp. As an undrafted free agent out of college, I needed to get faster to play in the NFL and Dave has helped me realize my potential and was able to improve my speed in a very short amount of time. Now entering my 7th season now as an NFL veteran I have only missed 2 games in my career and have been one of the most productive players at my position on the field.”
Aaron Palushaj – Philadelphia Flyers
“Over the past 7 years I’ve worked with some of the best strength coaches in the world and Coach Lawrence is at the top. I have never had better results than I have had with him. In one off-season he was able to completely overhaul my body. I have never been faster on the ice than after the off season training with him.”
Frank Zombo – Kansas City Chiefs, 7 year NFL veteran and Super Bowl Champion
“I would not still be in the NFL if it wasn’t for training with David at MECA.” In 2014, I came in for an evaluation and David showed me what was limiting my speed and power production. In one off-season, I increased my speed and strength more than I had previously done in the last 10 years training in college or the NFL. I increased my bench press by 91 pounds that off-season and was able to rehab an old hamstring injury that slowed me down and caused a lot of pain. Training with Dave and MECA has added more years to my career and I am running faster and playing stronger ever before. Headed into my 8th year NFL, I am getting better each year physical and it’s due to the continuous workouts and training at MECA.”
Alison Heydorn – Guyana Women’s National Soccer Team
“Training with Coach Lawrence dramatically improved my speed and shot. I had a nagging hamstring injury that was preventing me from playing in the Olympic qualifying tournaments. After training with David for 12 weeks, my hamstring was stronger and I had no more issues. I went on to have the best campaign of my career leading our national team in Goals and being voted National Player of the Year”
Adam Fenton – United States Bobsled Team
“Coach Lawrence completely overhauled my body. Before training with him I was out of shape and lacked speed. After 10 week, I dropped my body fat from 24.2 percent to 12.1 and my speed and power dramatically increase. As a result of training with him, I was one of the youngest athletes to make the United States bobsled team.”
Jayson Megna – Pittsburgh Penguins
“Training with David Lawrence changed my career. After my first off-season with him, I was much faster and stronger on the ice and my improved performance helped me receive a college scholarship. After my second year training with him I was drafted in the NHL and have gone on to play more than 100 games in the show.”
Austin Levi - Charlotte Checkers Defenseman
“The first summer I signed up with MECA, I came with a goal of gaining 20 lbs of muscle. I achieved this goal in 8 weeks. They are an elite training center and continue to get better every day. MECA’s relentless pursuit of knowledge drives them, and they know how to reach the goals you have for your body. They will make you quicker, stronger, healthier, and more powerful. For as long as I’m playing hockey, I will turn to Dave and the team at MECA for my training.”
“After the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl in December of 2012 I came to Dave to talk about training for Central Michigan’s Pro Day on March 11, 2013. It had been a long grueling season and it showed through the decline in my strength and stamina. We began the combine preparation the second week of January. In the eight weeks that I trained with Dave I saw more improvements in my overall strength, flexibility and stamina than I had in four years of training at the collegiate level. Dave developed a program that put me in the best possible position to perform well in front of the pro scouts. In the short time that we trained together my reps at 225 on bench increased from eight to twenty-two and my body fat percentage went from 23% to 12%. Dave and the MECA staff have the best training in the State of Michigan and I would recommend to anyone looking to become a better athlete or just get in shape to train at MECA!”
