Nicholas Schaus: The Syracuse Crunch | Anaheim Ducks
I have played Jr, Division 1, and Professional Ice Hockey. I currently play in the AHL for the affiliate team to the Anaheim Ducks, the Syracuse Crunch. Before John and I met I trained with quite a few good trainers such as Dave Smith of the NHL. I have been coming to Proformance for the past 4 summers and have improved tremendously not only physically but mentally as well. John's approach is a unique one. There are not many trainers that are willing to push the limits with the success that John has. His approach and love for training is seen throughout the facility and athletes. I can say 100 percent with out a doubt in my mind that John has helped me become a professional athlete and continues to push me on a daily basis to want more and to never accept complacency. I would tell any young athlete not only hockey but any sport to give Proformance a real chance. He will help you become the athlete you always dreamed you could be but never knew how to get there.

Jon is awesome! I found him when I was with the Bills in 2009-2010 season, when I had torn my ACL,LCL with a muscle tear. He got me back on the field 9-10 months later... My rehab time was suppose to be a year to 2 years. I guess you can call me Wolverine hahaha, but naw, it's hard work and dedication, we made all work easy work. Now I'm back to the NFL, and I'm very excited.
Chris Bradley: USA, World Juniors
Working with you John is something I look forward too every day because I know I'm going to only get better and I know I will have a great time doing it too. You've taught me a lot about my body, sports, my mind but most importantly that everyday is a chance to get better and I'm blessed to be given the opportunities that are in front of me. You help me realize that and be the best that I can be and I couldn't ask for anything more in a trainer but also a great friend. I appreciate everything you do for me and I couldn't be where I am today without the help from you in my training and in life.

Proformance brought a true athlete out of me, took me from good to great. Proformance is the best way to prepare for your season!

Jon Opfer and his Proformance training staff have gotten me to achieve my full potential athletically. I have been fortunate enough to achieve great things on the football field due in part to the great work put in at Proformance Sports Training...
Emily Pfalzer: Boston College, USA Jr National
I have been training with John for 2 years. My goal has been to attain the highest level of fitness to allow me to compete with and against athletes at the highest levels in hockey. I believe that John's training has allowed me to accomplish this goal. I have consistently graded out as excellent for strength and fitness despite my stature. His training program has also allowed me to improve my performance, improve my speed and avoid major injuries despite a rigorous hockey schedule. It has allowed me to compete successfully against some of the world's elite hockey players. John knows his athletes; he knows how hard they can be pushed and does not let you give anything but your best work. I recommend John's program without reservation to anyone who would like to compete at the highest levels in any sport.
Brittany Heist: Boston University, Women's Soccer, Midfielder of the Year
Proformance has changed my life, on and off the soccer field. After enduring long term injuries, training at Proformance has helped increase my confidence, my speed, and my overall athleticism. Playing at a division one level, one needs that competitor's edge. Proformance put fuel under my fire and got me back on the field and took my game to the next level. Training at Proformance took my physiological weaknesses and made them stronger, made me one step faster than my opposition and pushed me to become where I am right now. The atmosphere and the Proformance trainers' attitudes are contagious and made me push harder and work on things that when it comes down to it, made me mentally stronger. Proformance created a way for me to succeed in what I love doing, playing soccer, and I am forever grateful for what I have learned at its trainings, helping shape me into the player I am today.

“I have been going to Proformance Training since I was 12 years old. Over the past 6 years, I have seen my speed and size improve tremendously. It is a great experience that has paid off for me, especially when I was getting prepared for Division 1 collegiate soccer. I do not know of any other type of training that can even come close to Proformance. John Opfer has helped me with my strength, speed and injury prevention. I am so thankful that I have chosen John and Proformance Training over any other.”
