femail training techniques that workLance is a pro! For a girl who wasn’t a fan of the gym, his personal training motivated me physically and mentally. His style is comfortable and personable, yet challenges you to reach your goals safely and effectively.

He educated me on nutrition, and developed workouts to improve my endurance for cycling and running. I’ve seen results, by the increase of my performance while participating in duathlons.

Lance also has a knack for motivating teens! After just a couple training sessions, my 16 year old son has taken an interest in the gym. Since then, his confidence has noticeably increased as well as his physical motivation towards exercise.

Lance is a cool guy! He listens well to your needs, and consistently explains why we’re doing what we’re doing. I would recommend his training to anyone no matter what level your workout is.”

– Tracy Crawford, Mom/Small Business Owner/Duathlete

“I worked with Coach Lance all 4 years of playing high school football and he helped me elevate my game to a place I never thought possible. Not only has he brought my game to an elite level, but I’ve gained so much valuable knowledge about nutrition, recovery and so many other aspects that most trainers tend to skip past. Coach Lance has helped me grow both on and off the field as a man. His emphasis on accountability and self-discipline has stuck with me to this day. If you’re looking to improve your physical health and also mold yourself into a better person in all aspects of your life I HIGHLY recommend Coach Lance and Thor Sports Performance!
