Wanna Get Fast is like no other gym or training facility around that you can go to. Between the trainers, equipment, programs, and atmosphere there is no match. I can honestly say it changed my life when I joined the gym. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to play varsity football as a sophomore and get a taste of what it was all about. I quickly learned that to perform at a high level I need to do more than just lift at school. One of my teammates told me about the WGF and I immediately joined. From the moment I stepped foot into the gym I began to improve. After training all off-season going into my senior year I knew I was ready. My footwork, quickness and strength had all improved and put me in a good position to compete at a high level. That just what I did, my team was able to win the New York State Championship and I won the Most Valuable Offensive Lineman of the game award. I owe that to all the guys at Wanna Get Fast. There were many times that I did not think I would be able to complete a workout and the encouragement from Dan, Matt, Chris and the others got me through it. My most memoriable moment at the gym was the morning of the sate championship game they opened the gym up early so that 10 of my teammates and me could get stim and loosened up before the game. Then at the game they were all there to support us. My name is Michael Kausch I have been going to Wanna Get Fast for two years and it has been remarkable the results that have come from it. I will be a freshman in college next year playing football for John Carroll University.

I’ve been going to Wanna Get Fast for about six months and just in that time, my strength, speed, and overall performance has improved drastically. The equipment that’s available is top of the line, and the trainers are extremely knowledgeable about the different exercises. They teach you the proper form and explain to you how each exercise will benefit you. They know exactly what exercises to have you do to improve your performance in your specific sport(s). Training at Wanna Get Fast has helped to strengthen my muscles, which helps with injury prevention. The location is ideal and the atmosphere is extremely welcoming, with a clean facility as well. Everyone working there will push you to your fullest potential and the results are immediate.

The results he has received at WGF have been fantastic. He has grown physically and mentally. He looks like a different kid. His foot speed and overall athleticism has improved greatly. Billy loves going to WGF and thinks you are the greatest. I appreciate all you have done for my son and look forward to not only his return, but also his younger brother will be going with him when things settle down.

Wanna Get Fast has provided me with the best exercise experience I have been able to find in the area. It does not simply have one great quality like other gyms. It provides members with a personalized opportunity to achieve their goals. The main reason that it was so easy for me to choose WGF was its reputation. WGF has produced so many successful athletes, which is an advertisement in itself. The results from hard work in the gym can be seen in each client’s performance. WGF provides clients with a specific workout guided towards their goals. This means each person is performing the necessary exercises to see the desired results. The trainers are friendly and have more experience and collective knowledge than any others I have encountered.

In the summer of ’08, my daughter Sheryl stepped off a curb while playing street soccer and dislocated her knee cap (patella). She was in an immobilizer for a few months and then therapy began. She went through all of the exercises and Electro-stimulation machines that physical therapy offered but still had to wear a knee brace with metal brackets to keep the knee cap (patella) in place. We worked with many doctors that tested the muscle for response and C-scans with dye to see if there was any nerve damage or tearing of the muscle from the bone. All tests shown there wasn’t anything wrong, but we couldn’t get the muscle to respond to the therapy. Finally we found a specialist that suggested the ARPs machine. He had seen and used it in college on a football player and explained it would be painful but should work without having to resort to surgery. He did some research to get a machine for his clinic and even rent one but the cost was WAY out of reach. He contacted the company to see what local sports doctors or trainers had the ARPs and forwarded the contact information to me.
That’s when we met Dan Fichter at Wannagetfast; I called Dan to find out more information about the ARPs and when we could do a consult.
Our first session, we explained our situation to Dan and he explained what the ARPs can do for our Sheryl’s healing. He explained that this machine re-trains the brain to recognize that muscle and line of nerves that it had once cut off because of extreme trauma. Dan explained everything that he was doing and what she should expect thoroughly and even introduced us to the trainers that work with him. Dan spoke to Sheryl at her level of understanding and told her straight out how it was going to be, pain and outcome from it. In about 20 minutes, we went from no control to kick forward to already noticing the muscle responding and being able to kick up to Dan’s hand (she hadn’t been able to do that in almost 2years). Dan did 2 sessions that day and we haven’t seen the knee brace since. In the next couple sessions our daughter will be able to start jogging and testing the muscle more. A lot accomplished in 10 sessions that couldn’t have been done if we hadn’t have learned about the ARPs machine and Dan @ Wannagetfast.
Thank You Dan you have made a GREAT difference for Sheryl!!!

You go to Wanna Get Fast for speed training, but you gain so much more. My experience training at the gym is something I am so thankful for. Because of Matt, Chris, and Dan, I was able to return from an injury that originally was supposed to end my athletic career, to surpassing anything my former self had been.
I began my training at the gym during my recovery from a wrist surgery that repaired a bone that had been broken for almost a year. At first, I was skeptical about what was different about the training I was doing at the gym compared to any normal lifting I had done. I wondered how doing these workouts would improve my speed quickness, as well as keeping me injury free. My answers came as soon as I was cleared to compete again.
Following a month of training at the gym I stepped on the field two days after being cleared from an injury and was immediately competing with the future New York State AA Football Champions. I wasn’t a dead weight out there, but was making plays and running with guys that I had never been able to before. My wrist, which I had been afraid would be impaired, did not hold me back one bit after the treatments and loosening that the WGF staff put me through. It was as though it had never been broken at all when I was out there. My season continued to surpass all my expectations, as I was blowing through every person I hit, thanks to the explosive exercises that I had been put through. We ended up finishing as a Sectional Finalist, and I would never have been a part of that unless it was for the training I had been doing.
Football was not the sport I came to WGF to improve in. I love playing football, it is a great sport, but my true love is wrestling. For years I had been a guy to beat, but I had never been that top dog. I’d always had great seasons, beating many great competitors but, I always had mental lapses in big matches, costing me my goals. After training at WGF, things changed. From the workouts I improved in every aspect of my physical game; I was stronger and faster than I had ever been in the past, but there was one other thing that WFG did for me that changed my abilities, and that was mentally. In the past I had always over thought everything I did in wrestling, being too afraid to initiate my offense because I was too afraid of their defense. The workouts at WGF taught me to focus on one thing, the task at hand. If I was doing a lunge, I was to focus only on pulling my muscles, nothing more. That transferred over to wrestling with me only thinking of my offense, or how I would score, not anything they would do to me. This led from me winning close decisions in matches to ripping matches open. I became the scoring machine my coaches had envisioned I could be if I could just get my head on straight, and thanks to Matt, Chris, and Dan, that is all I was thinking about.
