"I've trained with Kevin at Endeavor since before my first year in the USHL. As a smaller guy, having the ability to create time and space has been crucial to my success. Kevin's programs have helped me develop the speed and quickness I need to compete at the highest levels, and the conditioning to continue pushing the pace late in games. If you're looking to fulfill your potential on the ice, Kevin is the guy to help you get there."

"The Hockey Training led by Kevin Neeld at Endeavor Sports Performance has helped me reach goals throughout the summer that were beyond my expectations. Since Day 1 I have left the facility feeling stronger and more confident. The attention to detail and the workouts have made me stronger mentally and physically. After 3 months of training I can already feel drastic improvements in my quickness and speed on the ice. I have never felt results like this in 5 years of training!
Endeavor is one of the only gyms in the world that has all the resources for me to improve every aspect of my game. The synthetic ice and skating treadmill have helped me improve my shot as well as lengthen my stride and skate at speeds I couldn't quite push myself to on the ice.
Kevin was great about changing my training program to accommodate my individual needs. I went through a serious tendon surgery in April that I thought would delay my training drastically. Following surgery, Kevin set up a specific program for me that would not cause any harm to my thumb and still allowed me to get stronger and train for the upcoming season. In previous years I would train all summer and develop back pain that made it difficult to keep up with my program. At Endeavor I haven't had back pain all summer because of the extensive core work and strengthening of specific surrounding muscles. After a summer of hockey-specific lifting and conditioning at Endeavor, I feel like I am prepared to compete against professional hockey players.
Without Jared Beach and Kevin Neeld's passion for the game of hockey, education, and coaching experience I don't believe I would be where I am today. I can't stress enough how incredible Endeavor has been for me. I would highly recommend it to any athlete striving to play at an elite-level."

“Throughout my professional playing career I learned that in order to play at my best, I needed the consistent guidance and wisdom of a great trainer. That is why I trust the staff at Endeavor with my development and happily point others to them as well. When it comes to sports performance, they are easily among the best.”
– Joe Crispin
Former NBA Player
"I've been fortunate throughout my career to train in some of the top strength & conditioning facilities in the US. What separates Endeavor from the rest is not just the results I see in my performance from the personalized workouts I receive, but also in the fun-loving family atmosphere that they create. They are just as invested in my development as I am, and their intensity to help me improve pushes me to new levels in my training and sport."

"Endeavor has the best facility, programs, and coaches around. If you play hockey and aren't training there, you're crazy."

“After training with Kevin Neeld for several years now, I can say, without a doubt, that I would not be playing where I am without him. Hockey is a sport that is constantly changing and Kevin has mastered the ability to evolve his training programs to give each individual exactly what they need to perform at their best on and off the ice.
Kevin has pushed me to accomplish goals that I didn't think possible. My speed and explosiveness, along with the conditioning on the ice was dramatically improved after starting with Kevin. Kevin's knowledge has helped in my training in ways I didn't know existed when first starting with him. Along with great weight lifting programs he includes corrective and prehab exercises to meet each individual's needs. These go a long way in keeping the players healthy and injury free during a long season.
I believe Kevin Neeld is at the top of his profession. His attention to detail and willingness to adjust to each athlete's specific needs is what puts him above all others. I recommend him to any athlete who is serious about playing at a higher level.”

“I have spent the last 5 years training with Kevin. In that time, we have done everything from off-ice training, nutrition planning, soft-tissue, deep tissue, and hip capsule mobilization work, and more. The list of all the things Kevin has done with me in my training process is endless. I have always been very particular in my training and have had a lot of injuries and structural limitations in my body that I've needed to work around. In order to stay at the top level of hockey, it's extremely important to be fluid in many areas. This hasn't affected my training one bit, as Kevin has individualized and altered my programs to fit my specific needs.
From the day I first walked into Endeavor until now I have really fallen in love with Kevin's coaching style and his care for what he does. I have worked with some of the "top" people in the world, and can honestly say that Kevin stands above the rest. I have never met a strength coach who works harder than he does. Simply, he cares. I look forward to continuing to work with Kevin, and learning from him, as his stuff is always changing and he is always keeping me on my toes with my training, rehab, and nutrition as I try to get myself back to the NHL."

"Ever since I started working out with Kevin at Endeavor, I have done nothing but get better. He taught me the right way to train, and emphasized proper form for everything from my mobility work to the lifts themselves. Every goal I've set for myself to translate on the ice, I’ve hit, and I give 100% credit to my off-season program. I won't train with anyone else!"

"There is a reason I made the four hour roundtrip drive to train with Kevin during my off-season, and why I continue to rely on him to help me prepare for NAVY SEAL BUD/S. His innovative and scientifically-backed training programs helped bring my performance to the next level. Not only did my overall athleticism and confidence improve, but his thorough knowledge of the body helped rid me of nagging injuries that have hindered my performance in the past. I will continue to utilize Kevin as a resource in any and all athletic endeavors that I pursue. That his knowledge is now readily accessible online will surely benefit athletes at all levels throughout the world."
– Jack Walchessen
Former OHL Hockey Player
"Kevin Neeld's dedication to the sport of hockey is the driving force behind his success and the success of his athletes. Every aspect of his work is specialized to the individual needs of his athletes. His passion has allowed me to reach new heights I would not have been able to achieve without him, at the collegiate and professional level. My individual programs have made me into a more complete player. On the ice, I feel like I am a more balanced player. Every aspect of my game has seen improvement: speed, agility, cardio, and strength. As a smaller player, I am never outmatched physically.
If you want to compete on the ice with the best, you have to train off the ice with the best. Kevin has proven himself as one of the elite trainers in the nation. You will see from Day One how detailed his work is and how committed he is to making you into a better player than you had imagined."

"I was extremely lucky to be able to train at Endeavor Sports Performance this summer. Endeavor was recommended to me by a friend and it was everything that I was looking for. I knew that I needed to get stronger and faster and without a doubt Kevin Neeld has done that for me. I had a posterior shoulder dislocation several years ago, which is a pretty rare injury. The surgery has significantly limited my range of motion and strength on that side. Kevin was able to pinpoint my limitations and help modify my training program, which is something most trainers can't do. My shoulders are now stronger than ever. I also lost over 5 lbs of fat, while still putting on some muscle mass. Being able to train with professional hockey players every day really drove me to work as hard as possible. With
Kevin designing some amazing training programs I have developed the strength and speed I need to perform well in my first professional season."

"I came to Endeavor Sports Performance looking to work with a knowledgeable staff who was willing and able to provide me with a personalized training experience. What I found exceeded my expectations. As a law enforcement officer, I recognize that physical fitness is important not only to me, but to the men and women I work with, and the people I strive to protect. Kevin and the staff at Endeavor were able to put together comprehensive training programs that took my unique needs into account. They're not only top-notch coaches, they're also avid students, always seeking out opportunities to add new tools and techniques to their already-impressive list of abilities. Kevin and the rest of the crew at Endeavor Sports Performance have always been willing to go the extra mile to make sure I've been successful, and I would absolutely recommend them to anyone who takes their training seriously – especially those in military and public safety careers who rely on fitness to bring them home safely at the end of the day."
– Matt, Federal Law Enforcement Officer
Finding the right workout regimen was a workout within itself. Whether I tried a new diet or researched the latest form of exercise; no matter which path I chose and however much time I dedicated, I found myself becoming more susceptible to injuries while never reaping the benefits. From the onset, Kevin and Matt have not only continued to develop a customized training program that plays to my needs, but their diligence and patience is evident when making sure my movements and form are on point. Within a month of their instruction, not only did I see incredible improvements in my mobility, strength and body composition but that progress has continued all while staying injury free! It is one thing to personally start seeing results but when your friends and family take notice, that’s what makes all the hard work so reassuring. The Endeavor staff is not only the best at what they do, but they create a comfortable, fun and friendly environment. This atmosphere is what makes me look forward to training, while striving to get the best results. I am grateful to have found Endeavor as they have made me a better me!

“I asked Matt Siniscalchi to come and work with our athletes at the Washington Spirit and he made an instant impact. He was able to give points that immediately translated to the athletes and their movement patterns. He was able to help our athletes move and feel better. To any athlete that is a big part of of the puzzle. His wealth of knowledge combined with desire to keep learning make him someone that would add value to any organization."

"Without exception, every player that I have advised to work with Kevin has thanked me for doing so. He is the most knowledgeable strength/fitness specialist that I have met, and this is not an accident - he relentlessly keeps himself informed about current thinking and research, and how it applies to his clients."

"Kevin Neeld and his staff at Endeavor have completely transformed my son, Tim, as an athlete both physically and mentally. Tim began working with Endeavor last year at 6'8 and 215 pounds. After 4 months, Timmy was 6'9 and 243 lbs., and had gained strength, speed and power that has enabled him to become a nationally recognized basketball recruit. What makes Endeavor such a tremendous program is their professional and scientific approach to training each athlete to their strengths, while also addressing injuries or weaknesses. They use creative, effective and unique methods that produce quick results. Timmy emerged on the national radar simultaneously with Endeavor's support and training. He would not have achieved this without the dedication and inspirational support from Kevin Neeld and his staff. We look forward to working with Endeavor to prepare Timmy to compete in the BIg East at Villanova in 2015."

“My son, Harmon, started training at Endeavor Sports Performance over 2 years ago when he was 11 years old. Since that time, his ability to move properly and his strength and endurance have greatly improved. He is also demonstrating more confidence on and off the soccer field.
My husband, Dave, and I have been so happy with Harmon's results, we decided to join Endeavor for very different reasons. I was looking for a lifestyle change which included weight loss, nutrition & overall healthy living. Dave has had many orthopedic injuries and had pain everyday. With the knowledge and expertise of Kevin Neeld and Matt Siniscalchi, I am reaching my goals and Dave is able to get up in the morning pain free!!
The desire and ambition to learn make Kevin and Matt top notch in the industry! Their unique training approach and development of individualized programs are beneficial to both athletic performance and those with personal training goals.
We are proud to be a part of the Endeavor Family!!”

"Since Brianna has been training with Endeavor Sports Performance her overall strength, conditioning and endurance have dramatically improved. As soon as the spring soccer season started we noticed significant improvement in her ability to move on the soccer field.
One of the most noticeable improvements was in her confidence. She was not only physically faster and stronger, but mentally she felt faster and stronger.
I would personally recommend Endeavor Sports Performance to anyone looking to improved the overall physical and mental conditioning of any young athlete. On top of that Endeavor has a first class training facility with some of the best trainers in the industry, not simply because they are certified, but because they care."
– Paul Donahue, Head Coach Harrison SC Charge
“As a former Junior A, Division I, and Pro hockey player, I've had my fair share of strength/nutrition coaches and I can honestly say none compare to the knowledge and care that Kevin Neeld brings to a team. Having the privilege to work beside Kevin for the past 4 years with Team Comcast, both at the U16 & U18 levels, I can truly testify that I have not come across another coach who has such an impact on athletes as Kevin. His knowledge and expertise in strength training and nutrition are second to none. During his time with Team Comcast he has undoubtedly been a major contributor to helping our players achieving their goals of playing hockey at the next level. He is a true professional who beyond a doubt cares about the development of young athletes and providing them with the proper foundation to take their playing career to an elite level. His constant drive to develop innovating training methods will undeniable keep his program at the top of the training spectrum.“

Our son is very happy with the results so far and really looks forward to going to the gym. We have been very happy with Kevin and the staff at Endeavor and highly recommend them."
