Burke Spencer worked with me at Iona College for 5 years. The teams were faster, jumped higher and always in better condition than our competition. We won the Maac Conference twice during those years and beat The University of North Carolina among our many wins. Burke helped us to win and, if you train with his Sport Trainer, I know you will too!

Thank you Burke Spencer for all of your hard work and dedication to Sports Performance training.  After you worked with my High School basketball team (St. Peter's Boy's) We had back to back winning seasons with only 4 losses and 2 championships in the New York City High School basketball league.  Your product is second to none and shows results within the first couple of times working with it.  I came into High School standing 5'10'', 165lbs and after working with you I was dunking on a regular basis at 16 years old.  The thing that impressed me most is the explosion that you get on your first step and how fast you see the results.

I have used the Sports Trainer and Gold Medal Speed Bands with all of my athletes for the past 8 years. I presently use the Gold Medal Speed Bands with my high school female track and field athletes who have shown outstanding progress. We had a high school freshman improve her 100m time from 14.2 seconds to her state 10th place finish time of 12.5. We have two quarter milers improve their times from 68.3 second to 62.99 and 70.0 seconds to 63.39 seconds. I have also trained division 1, 2 and 3 college athletes with the use of the Sports Trainer and Gold Medal Speed Bands.

The quality of improvement in neuromuscular firing is evident after seven (4) weeks of off season training. I proudly use this training equipment with all my athletes at all levels.

I have had the opportunity to train with Burke Spencer since I was 15 years old. He helped me fulfill my childhood dreams of getting an athletic scholarship to a Big East school. Burke pushed me and got the most out of me every single time. Training with Burke definitely gave me a mental and physical advantage in the last few minutes of the game. Burke pushed me to my limit in the summer and as a result of this my conditioning level was far superior to the opponents I faced night in and night out in high school and college basketball. Burke helped my dreams become a reality and I couldn’t have competed on the highest level of college basketball and played professionally without my training sessions with him.

Late in my high school career I began working with Burke Spencer. After having the opportunity to take advantage of his expertise for several months, I was able to take my game to the next level. The sudden advancement allowed me garner several scholarship offers from high Division 1 schools. I eventually signed with Boston College where I was a starter for 3 years and a co-captain my senior year. Each summer during my college and professional career, I made spending time in the gym with Burke a paramount objective as he was an integral part of my success. He is supremely knowledgeable about his craft and a tremendous motivator who truly cares about each student that he works with. Having worked with some of the most revered trainers in the world, I can honestly say that Burke is by far the best.

Hello my name is Dr. Lawrence O’Connor and I have treated professional, collegiate and high school athletes with chiropractic care for 27 years. I have seen well trained athletes and I have seen athletes that try to train on their own. The results are staggering. Properly trained athletes are stronger, faster and experience less injuries. Who you train with is also critical. Go with someone who has the experience. I have worked with Burke Spencer’s students. They are superior athletes ready for their High School, Collegiate and Professional career. I would highly recommend Burke Spencer for your training needs.

Burke Spencer has worked with me for the past 10yrs. He has helped me build an incredible physic by weight training, core stability work, and speed and agility. I started working with Burke my freshman yr at St Patrick HS. I fell in love with his intensity, devotion, and motivation. He worked with me all four years, including my senior year in which we won the T.O.C and I was NJ player of the year. He prepared me for a high level of competition by adding and maintaining my weight. I always had a problem keeping on weight and building size but Burke program did both of those things and more.

Burke gave me the opportunity to play at the highest level of college bball, the Big East. I signed with Villanova University my junior year in high school. When I came home for off season training I continued to work with Burke. Each year I improved my strength and weight with his program. Burke was a huge part of me being a Big East All Rookie Team member and All Big Five Team. I continued my off season workout with Burke throughout my college career. I was fortunate enough to have workouts with the Memphis Grizzlies and the Philadelphia 76ers. Although I didn't get drafted, I have had the opportunity to come overseas and play pro ball in Italy. The picture that you see is the off season improvement before my NBA workouts. I managed to put on 15lbs and improved my bench press to a max of 245! I went from 165 to 180lbs. As you can see, putting in work results in a Body by Burke!!

I thought my College Basketball career was over when I tore my ACL.  I had 7
months from my surgery until the first official practice of my senior
season.  Some told me I would never fully recuperate from a torn ACL.  Many
told me it would take 2 full years to return to 100% both physically and
mentally.  Burke eliminated that thought from my mind immediately.  He put
me through grueling workout after grueling workout as he worked on my
strength, conditioning, speed and agility.  Burke pushed me to my limit and
passed it.  He had me doing things I never thought I could.  I wore the
Burke Spencer “Sports Trainer” bands all day every day.  He helped me as
much mentally as he did physically.  Any setbacks he was there to pick me up
and point me in the right direction.  Burke put me through every possible
test.  My legs became stronger than ever before.  Not only was I ready
physically but more importantly Burke helped me overcome the most difficult
obstacle after a severe injury: the mental doubts.  Due to the severity of
my injury, my coaches expected me to return for my final season as a role
player.  In 2011, I recorded single game career highs in three pointers (8)
and points(32) as I ended the season ranked 18th in the country in three
point field goals made per game at 3.2 per game and one of the Conference’s
leading scorers at 15 points per game.  My coaches thought the injury would
cause me to be a defensive liability.  I ranked among the top 10 in steals
in the conference.  Burke allowed me to have my senior season and there is
no way I could have done it without him.  I am extremely grateful for all he
did for me and truly believe anything is possible through Burke.
