Hello, my name is Scott, and I’ve been training with Jonas now for about 18 months. I’m a high school football and lacrosse official.
Before finding us, what was the biggest struggle/biggest frustration you had?
The struggle would be the recovery after games. I’d typically run between 3-5 miles per game, and my recovery time, being in my 60s, was quite a challenge
How did that affect your life? How did you feel before you started training with us?
Oh it was good but, as I mentioned, just recovery time and constant pain in my feet and lower legs, my feet were just a constant struggle trying to cover grass, as a football official and a lacrosse official.
And how did the strength training help you?
Phenomenal. The pain in my lower legs and my feet is gone. I’ve regained a lot more balance and stability, and my endurance has increased substantially.
How’s life different? How’s officiating different now?
My tolerance for coaches has increased because I don’t have near the pain…but at the end of the day, like I said, my recovery time to officiate the next game assignment, either it’d be later in the week or even the next game after that previous game.
