Dramatic Before and After MECA Athlete Training Results
Athletes who train at Michigan Elite Conditioning for Athletes (MECA) get tangible results they can see and feel. Our personal trainers have worked with college-level, national team-level and professional athletes in more than 40 sports, including football, hockey, soccer, bobsledding and ice skating. They all see their performance significantly improve along with their bodies.
Head Strength Coach and Founder David Lawrence developed the effective MECA approach that gives athletes such dramatic results. Backed by science, our program begins with an individualized assessment, and then builds a personalized strength training, conditioning and nutrition plan unique to the athlete. Athletes who follow the custom program typically see more progress in 3 months than they did in 3-5 years of training on their own or elsewhere.
The MECA personal training approach has made a remarkable difference for everyone from NFL football players Zach Zenner and Frank Zombo, to AHL and NHL hockey players Zach Redmond and Aaron Palushaj, to collegiate and Olympic-level athletes in a multitude of sports.
Look at the extraordinary results these athletes have achieved while training at MECA.
Outside Linebacker Detroit Lions
Went from 237 pounds at 14.8 percent body fat to 255 and 10.8 percent body fat gaining at total of 27 pounds.
Running Back, Detroit Lions
Has gained 26 pounds of muscle in the last 10 months while training at MECA and dropped his body fat from 12.6 to 8.0 even.
Defensive End, Dallas Cowboys
Gained 22 pounds of muscle in 8 weeks and went from 22% body fat to 13.6
Montreal Canadians Defensmen
Added 16 pounds of muscle in the offseason training at MECA
Went from 14.8% – 7.6% Body Fat while putting on 22lbs of muscle in the summer.
“Over the past 7 years I’ve worked with some of the best strength coaches in the world and Coach Lawrence is at the top. I have never had better results than I have had with him. In one off-season he was able to completely overhaul my body. I have never been faster on the ice than after the off season training with him.”
USA Bobsled Team
Went from 24.2% Body Fat to 12.1% in 10 weeks
“Coach Lawrence completely overhauled my body. Before training with him I was out of shape and lacked speed. After 10 week, I dropped my body fat from 24.2 percent to 12.1 and my speed and power dramatically increase. As a result of training with him, I was one of the youngest athletes to make the United States bobsled team.”
Kansas City Chiefs
Went from 13.8% BF to 8.0% BF in 10 weeks
“I would not still be in the NFL if it wasn’t for training with David at MECA. In 2014, I came in for an evaluation and David showed me what was limiting my speed and power production. In one off-season, I increased my speed and strength more than I had previously done in the last 10 years training in college or the NFL. I increased my bench press by 91 pounds that off-season and was able to rehab an old hamstring injury that slowed me down and caused a lot of pain. Training with Dave and MECA has added more years to my career and I am running faster and playing stronger ever before. Headed into my 8th year NFL, I am getting better each year physical and it’s due to the continuous workouts and training at MECA.”
