Below are testimonials solidifying how Speed Matters has helped athletes on a competitive level:
"I have had a chance to watch Rob's programs closely over the years. I coached against him when he coached in another school district. He has worked with youth groups, high school sports, college athletics and adults. He has worked with football, basketball, track and cross country that I have personally observed. Rob brings expertise in so many areas. He is a strong motivator who understands human kinetics. He focuses on the task at hand with intensity and his pupils learn to focus with the same intensity. It is a pleasure to recommend someone who has demonstrated success in so many areas over a significant period of time."

"I have had the pleasure of knowing Coach Rob Naylor professionally, and have always respected his passion for physical development and training. As a Certified Athletic Trainer for the past 5 years at the University of Pittsburgh, I understand the importance of speed, agility, and proper conditioning in order to gain a competitive advantage in NCAA Division I college athletics. Coach Naylor does an excellent job developing athletic performance in a safe and effective manner, regardless of the chosen sport. In my opinion, his training style also leads to a decreased injury rate as your season progresses. I continue to use Coach Naylor’s techniques today with great success when rehabilitating injured athletes for return to play. I highly recommend Coach Naylor for all of your fitness needs."

"Over the past two years, Coach Naylor has had a tremendous impact on the Seneca Valley football program. Since working with our players in the areas of speed training, agility, and endurance, our team has made measurable improvements on the field. His ability to work with our kids in a football specific training environment has led to fewer injuries and a steady progress in the “win” column. Part of winning early in the season depends heavily on what kind of condition your players are in. Coach Naylor worked tirelessly all summer, pushing our players and constantly changing the types of workouts that they did. In 18 years as a coach, I have never had teams in better shape coming into camp. As a coach, this allows me to focus on football only during camp. The conditioning was in place, and Coach Naylor continued to work with the team during camp. I truly believe that it has made us stronger team. High school football has never been more competitive. I believe that Coach Naylor’s work with our program has given us an edge that will continue to help our program grow successfully."
- Ron Butschle, Head Football Coach, Seneca Valley High School
"In this competitive day and age, what an athlete does in the off-season to maximize performance is as important as playing the game itself. Having played and coached at the collegiate level, I understand the growing importance of speed, agility, and explosiveness in today's athletics. I have the highest regard for Coach Rob Naylor's "Speed Matters" Program. He is as accomplished of a sports training specialist as there is in the area and his resume speaks for itself. Coach Naylor's passion to see his clients succeed drives him to go above and beyond expectations. Because of his influence I was able to have a successful collegiate basketball career and have been able to instill his techniques in my players today. If you are ready to take your game to another level, Coach Naylor can get you there."
