Hi All
On a different note, if your son is really into sports and Playing
Football is his thing and for Any Sport, this is an open letter to all on
our team.
I have been aware of this program since the Spring thru our neighbor, Jim
Coleman. They took their Son to this Program and he is now away in SC on a
College scholarship - BAD got him to that level.
Their Daughter, Molly is there now and she is a Swimmer.

 I took Patrick there on Monday for an Evaluation and we started the Program
yesterday - Wow !

This is for Core Training, how to improve All of what it takes to be
at their best. It is Not for the Boy's who are just on a Football team and
do not have the Discipline to keep with a program or want to take their
performance to the next level. And this program works towards any sport.
IT"S HARD WORK !
We will be going after School, 3 times a week.

I have also met several Coworkers who have their Boys and Girls there,
everyone says "if your Son or Daughter is into Sports and want to take it to
the next level, Kevin is the man and BAD is where they need to be"

I hope several of our Boy's can get into this program, if THS
Football ( Prep/ ND/ St. Josephs) is the direction they want to go, BAD
should be a part of it.
I'm not a salesman and I don't get commission from this - I want to share
this opportunity we have been missing out on for some time.

Just like with Baseball/ Gymnastics/ Tennis/ Soccer - and how much we invest
in our kids w/ lessons and workouts - this is the Best Program I have seen.

“At the end of his junior year, my son was doing pretty well, starting many games and participating in UCONN’s Baseball School. However, he wasn’t drawing attention from the college scouts. We hired Coach Gendron – a $1000 investment that has paid off a dozen times over! After the first 6 weeks, Coach helped my son reduce his body fat by 9% and increase his hydration level by 22%. He was faster, leaner, and more flexible than he had ever been!

“Over the next several months, he trained with coach, who always pushed just enough and lent a hand to the bar when it was truly needed. By the time the season started, my son was ready. Interest from colleges quickly grew. Not just Division 3 schools, which have no scholarship money, but Division 2 as well. We picked a school as much for its program as scholarships and grants totaling more than $18,000 per semester, more than $72,000 over four years.

“The thousand dollars I spent last year is looking like the investment of a lifetime!”

Tom Saloomey


“Thank you coach Gendron for helping surpass my expectations as a competitive marathoner. Your strength program and advice on endurance training and nutrition helped me demolish my personal best time by over 16 minutes in this past year’s Philadelphia marathon.”

J. Eisenberg
Competitive marathoner & endurance athlete


“Coach Gendron has provided me the regimen, techniques, diet, advice and inspiration over the last 10 years that has been instrumental in sculpting my 6'6" 280 pound frame from 26% to 17% body fat.”

R. Jones
Professional Body Guard


“Since I have trained at Better Athletic Development I have seen improvements in all of my events. In my first Pentathlon at Yale University on January 9th as a Division 1 collegiate athlete, I placed first, qualified for New England's by over 100 points, and was also named NEC Track Rookie of the Week.”

Melissa Wakeman, Freshman Heptathalete
Sacred Heart University


“There is no other athletic development program in Shelton or any nearby town that is like what Coach Gendron offers. In addition to providing both of my children with an individualized athletic program tailored to enhance their athletic performance, he has provided them with valuable information on proper nutrition and exercise that will serve them well into adulthood. His expert knowledge, energy and enthusiasm make him a valuable role model and mentor. He’s truly an asset to our community.

“The results we’ve experienced over the last year have enticed me to try his program as well. I have exercised before on my own and typically saw minimal results and lost interest after a short period of time. After only six weeks I saw results in loss of body fat and increase in lean muscle! My clothing fits better and I feel stronger. Your emphasis on proper form and unique exercise program has raised my fitness level. As a golfer, I’ve experienced increased flexibility as well as added distance to my shots.

“Keep up the good work!”

Christine Fiore


“I began working out with Coach Gendron in September 2003. I had been playing competitive tennis for ten years. During this time I had been to several strength and conditioning coaches but I had not seen any results. Since ranking 52 in boys 18 and under in New England, I was looking for the right person to take me to the next level. In the first few months with Coach Gendron, not only did I raise my game, but I raised my ranking to the top 30. The unique thing about BAD (Better Athletic Development), is that you always get a one on one work out with Coach himself. He is always there to push you and guide you. On the court is not the only place that I have improved. I am in the best physical shape that I have ever been, and very rarely am I even tired or sore after a work out. Currently a senior in high school, I am now being recruited by schools such as Villanova University, University of Connecticut, Assumption College and La Salle University. Thank you Coach!”

“Coach Gendron has been the key to my success in track at Sacred Heart University.

“To compete in Division I Track and Field as a heptathlete you need to have speed, strength, agility, and the will to compete hard and train harder. Coach Gendron created a program that was individual to my specific strengths and weaknesses and I have seen improvements in all of my events. In my first Pentathlon at Yale University, I placed first, qualified for New Englands by over 100 points, and was also named NEC Track Rookie of the Week.

“Thanks to Better Athletic Development, I am realizing my dreams of competing in DI Track and Field and I plan on continuing my training in the off season with Coach Gendron to achieve even greater success for the following year.”

Melissa Wakeman
Freshman at Sacred Heart University


“Coach Gendron is a true professional in the field of strength and conditioning. I know how to coach baseball and motivate kids, but whatever I thought I knew about building an athlete was nothing compared to what I learned from Kevin. The presentation he made to my team was one that has been talked about since the day he was here. The demonstration portion was amazing. The kids truly learned how to take the strength they built in the off-season and put it to use in ways that directly relate to the game of baseball. If you don't have access to such a coach, you need to get it. It is crucial to the development of the athlete and the performance of your team.”

Wayne Mazzoni, Head Baseball Coach, Teikyo Post University


“Jimmy has improved noticeable in every area. Jimmy is faster, quicker off the ball, and definitely more explosive. Playing football for the number one ranked Ansonia Chargers is demanding. However, Jimmy has met the challenge because of his progress in your program.

“As a former high school baseball coach, I marvel at the results your approach to athletic development has benefited not only Jimmy, but also the other athletes I have observed training at BAD.”

James Finnucan


“Every boy who attended that camp felt the edge of being properly stretched and drilled for their best performance.

“Some may ask: “Can a week make a difference?” Well, we saw it in just three days in our boys!

“It has enabled us to stay on the cutting edge of our sport.”

“Marco has enjoyed and most definitely benefited from your clinics... when tryouts for football and baseball rolled around last year, he was quite prepared... you are unique to this area... I’ve found your training more complete and adaptive to any sport and use your warm ups before skiing rather than just stretching.”

M. Garamella (coach & parent)


“I admire [Coach Gendron’s] passion and dedication to his clients, always being aware of issues to help them personally, not just physically. He always makes his sessions meaningful and educational. He has a knack for building a rapport easily and making his clients feel comfortable with him and with the exercise/training protocol prescribed.

“His professionalism has led him to achieve his most recent venture and 10-year dream: the opening of Better Athletic Development. He has helped his youngest clients develop into responsible young adults and focused athletes with improved self-confidence and self-image.”

“Coach Gendron has provided me the regimen, techniques, diet, advice and inspiration over the last 10 years that has been instrumental in maintaining and sculpting my 6'6", 280-pound frame. Without Coach Gendron, I would not have made the incremental gains to date. While I have additional work to achieve my ultimate goal, being under the direction of Coach Gendron, I know that goal is attainable.” Robert Jones
“Thank you for your astute assessment of Myles’ training needs and the cogent program that you’ve embarked him on.

“The results have been both swift and profound: his speed, agility, and balance have all improved markedly, taking his Lacrosse game to new levels of personal success.

“PS: Myles finished the season with 113 goals in 11 games!”

Joe & Patty Rich


“My son has found your off-season program very helpful and eagerly awaits the next camp... being a baseball, football and basketball coach for 7 years, I find it helpful to recommend my players to your program to train and stay in shape... keep up the great work!”

B. Mancini (coach, parent)


“Your presentation “Giving 110% Over 100 degrees” Hydration Presentation is excellent...”

D. Johnson (Athletic Director, Windsor High School)


“I want to thank you for the individual training... to prepare me for the CT Senior Games... with one month to prepare, your routine made it possible to participate competitively in my age group (65-69) and received the bronze medal in the javelin throw.... The new and revised program has definitely built my strength and flexibility... first time in six years I got four pars in the first nine holes of golf.”

D. Mockler (Senior Olympic Athlete and avid golfer)


“... he’s increasing in both strength and flexibility ... see a vast improvement in his athletic prowess!!!

N. DiGioia, Sr. (father)


“In only six weeks, I have seen my body change. I have more muscle definition. On the softball field, I’m hitting the ball farther, throwing the ball harder, and running faster!

“When I joined Better Athletic Development, I knew right away I had made an excellent choice, but the results have been phenomenal. With Better Athletic Development, you get personal training at a regular gym member price!

“It’s even better than that since you get to participate in the boot camp and FAST classes for an additional price of NOTHING!”

Carrie Mayer


“Your presentation “Giving 110% Over 100 degrees” Hydration Presentation is excellent...”
