been lifting weights for 32 years, and during that
time I've had short periods in which I made terrific
gains. But I've never had the sustained increases
in strength and power that I've seen in the six months
since I've been using CB ATHLETICS training programs.

I'm blocking shots in basketball for the first time
in my life. While blocking a five-foot, ten-inch,
40-year-old magazine editor's set shot isn't the same
as rejecting Kobe, it's still new to me. In short,
I've accepted CB as my personal trainer. If my old
muscles could learn new tricks, imagine what CB ATHLETICS
could do for you!

Athletics provides practical, expert advice for athletes
based on science and years of strength-training research
and experience. It's an extremely valuable resource
to anyone who wants to eat better, train better, and
perform better. I've added 14 pounds of muscle with
CB's nutritional advice and I finally got results
with creatine supplementation.

CB ATHLETICS involved in our basketball program was
an exciting and rewarding experience for our players.
It provided our players with a multitude of new skills,
hard workouts and focused on developing sport-specific
skills that would provide a competitive edge for our
players. Each workout was packed with new activities
and sessions of learning. Not only were the workouts
designed to further develop sport-specific basketball
skills and conditioning, but the sessions also improved
awareness of proper nutrition, provided a personal
training program and taught many life skills necessary
for a complete game. In a competitive world where
small things help make a difference between winning
and losing, CB ATHLETICS' work with our team contributed
to our overall success.

program is great. It breaks everything down from proper
diet, to supplementation and workouts. Anyone who
wants to put on some muscle or wants to shake up their
workout should seriously consider this program as
it offers everything you need to get big, but in short
easy to understand sections.
The Strength and
Conditioning Program at McMaster University
is quickly growing into one of the most recognized
in Canada. CB ATHLETICS and Craig Ballantyne
have played a key role in this development.
The training techniques and nutritional information
has helped varsity athletes at McMaster not
only achieve, but also exceed their goals. In
an industry that is constantly changing it is
integral that Strength and Conditioning coaches
be aware of the new research and its applications
to athletes. I look forward to many more years
of collaboration with CB ATHLETICS.

The training advice
and programs I have received from CB ATHLETICS
have helped me make tremendous gains in all
aspects of conditioning. In one summer CB ATHLETICS
helped me add 20 pounds of lean mass while making
improvements in my body control, speed, and
quickness, which are the most important part
of my position. CB ATHLETICS has also provided
online coaching advice that has helped in my
development as an athlete. The online aspect
is like having your own personal trainer. I
also get additional information dealing with
the mental aspects of sport. For anyone who
is looking to improve performance I encourage
you to start training with the most innovative
and up to date workouts available that are provided
by CB ATHLETICS. Train hard, GO DIGGERS!

advice I received from CB ATHLETICS is accurate
and effective. CB ATHLETICS trained my soccer
team in a manner which none of us had ever tried
before, and the results were better than expected:
I was feeling better during and after games
than I ever had -- without having to run at
practice for half an hour at a time. I found
my recovery time from sprints, during the game,
much shorter. It's the CB ATHLETICS sport-specific
training method that I continue to use for myself,
and the teams I coach, because it trains the
body in minimal time, leaving more time for
The CB ATHLETICS mantra of "train
smart" is one that I follow rigidly. I've seen
better results using CB ATHLETICS' approach
than any other advice I've followed: I feel
stronger and maintain the degree of fitness
I desire over the winter.
Finally, CB ATHLETICS maintains
a dynamic approach to training, staying on top
of the discipline and never advocating one single
approach to getting fit. CB ATHLETICS is always
offering the latest research and information
and a variety of methods to improve performance.
It isn't as much the credentials as the genuine
and sincere approach to fitness for which I
trust CB ATHLETICS instruction.
an ice hockey player from Turkey. I needed to
lose some fat and have been using the "turbulence
training" for about 3 weeks. I've added 10 sets
of speed and quickness drills to the program
and so far I'm getting great results. I've lost
4 pounds of fat without a decrease in strength.
I'm faster and have more endurance. I look forward
to future CB training programs for hockey. Thank
you. Keep up the great work!
have had the privilege over the last few years to
receive personal coaching from CB ATHLETICS. I am
an avid athlete who unfortunately knows little about
Kinesiology and the way the body works. It has been
exciting working with CB ATHLETICS because CB can
relate to the demands on an athlete while being able
to provide precise feedback in a language that can
be understood. It is amazing the value that a training
program can to your sporting and personal life. CB
ATHLETICS is definitely a champion builder!
I've read MASSIVE
ACTION, I have definitely gained muscle. I have
been concentrating a lot on eating, shooting for about
3000 calories a day. I wanted to get my calorie intake
and training routine in check, before I started supplementation.
I've gained 6 pounds since I started following the
program (close to a pound a week!) and people have
noticed that I am bigger now. The main things it taught
me was getting my calorie intake up, and changing
the types of exercises I was doing (less exercises
but more intense).
gained 6 lbs, totally exceeding my expectations for
the short time I have been on a CB ATHLETIC strength
program! I have gone up in weight in all the bigger
exercises, using more for the deadlift than I had
ever before. Overall, I'm really happy with my progress
ATHLETICS provides an enormous amount of information
to anyone interested in improving his/her fitness
level. The company is extremely knowledgeable and
is quick to respond to any questions an athlete might
have. The advice has allowed me to make immense gains
in my workouts.

receiving some coaching for Powerlifting I learned
that I had to put on some weight to improve my leverage
and ultimately my strength. I had corresponded with
CB ATHLETICS before, while researching an off season
Hockey program for my son, and found very helpful
information, so I purchased "MASSIVE
ACTION". The program contains a vast amount of
knowledge on all aspects of nutrition and training
condensed into a user friendly, easy to read format.
The supplement information is bodyweight specific,
i.e. recommendations are in grams per kg of bodyweight.
This is something sorely lacking from others! The
Creatine recommendation was the first brand that actually
worked for me! This alone was worth the price of the
program. There are several training programs included
that could help tremendously in putting on weight.
These are not your typical bodybuilding magazine programs
but rather proven mass building programs from fitness
experts. Typical meal plans are included! Overall,
"MASSIVE ACTION" is must for any athlete trying to
add some muscle. Results? So far I have put on 8 lbs.
in 6 weeks!
