I broke my ankle playing roller derby last winter. Three months and 20 pounds later, I’d lost a lot of conditioning and most of my motivation for workouts. I started training with Donovan because I knew I needed to rebuild a solid foundation, and I also knew I needed a leader. I appreciated his focus on the fundamentals of lifting and the no-frills atmosphere of the gym, as well as his attention to motivation and attitude.
Within a few months of training with Donovan, I’d regained all ankle function and strength, renewed motivation to keep getting stronger, and am now back to trading squat and deadlift pics with my teammates. – Stephanie Davidson
