Chasing Greatness


I signed my daughter up for about 8 months ago. I have seen a significant increase in her athletic ability, agility, strength, endurance, and overall game. I recommend this program to all parents I know. Can’t say enough wonderful things about Athletes Acceleration.

-Karen Little, Parent

“As much as we as parents like to take credit for our childrens’ accomplishments, I feel that acknowledgement should be given where deserved. Sam has been with Athletes Acceleration since the beginning, and has wholeheartedly embraced the mission of Athletes Acceleration of not just athletic development, but more importantly of character and leadership. I cried (with pride) when I received the below email (Student of the month in Middle School) this afternoon. When something like this comes out of the blue, it is like a gift and I just wanted to say thank you.”


“The impact that AR has had on him in just a few months has been has exceeded all my expectations as a parent and a coach. Athletically I have seen a tremendous increase in his quickness and speed. His awareness and ability to move properly in such a short time has been outstanding.”

-Bill, Parent and Coach

Every so often my son and daughter will do something really athletic in whatever sport they are playing and I often say “that’s an AR move!” They learned how to do certain techniques while having fun at Athletes Acceleration and those skills naturally carried over to their competitive sports. More importantly the emphasis on being a champion is NOT about being the best, it’s about doing the best you can do in everything, like listening to your parents or being a good teammate–important life skills! Thanks Coach Dave Gleason and his staff for influencing my kids in such a positive way!

-Matt , Parent

Great News. I’m on the team! Thanks for everything, you’re a huge reason why I was able to make it, and I appreciate all you’ve done to help me.”

-James Conor, Brandeis University Men’s Basketball

“I saw something in him, I haven’t seen in a while. I am so happy you guys opened Athletes Acceleration, it is going to make a big difference in lots of kids lives. I can’t tell you how awesome that made me feel. We have tried a ton of different things with Nate, and I know it was only one class with you guys, but I can tell, he is really excited and going to learn a ton.”

–Amy, Parent

“I just wanted to reach out to say how impressed we are with you and your program. He just loves the program as well. Already, his speed and agility has increased dramatically. He went from being in the back pack of runners at football to now the top 6! As a result, as you can imagine, his confidence has risen tremendously!”

-Charles, Parent and Coach

“What you give to the kids as a coach, as a role-model and as a person in general cannot be duplicated. I have seen a huge change in my son since you have come into his life and I can’t thank you enough for it. You are there for him during a time when he needs it most. You are the best! No contest!”

-Jen, Parent

“Dave is one of the best, most dedicated and passionate Youth Fitness Specialists in the World. He is an amazingly talented coach”

-Brian Grasso – Founder, CEO International Youth Conditioning Association

“The difference is in your coaching style. Your program is giving Sam the tools to become both a better athlete and soccer player
