tl-bullet.gif Testimonials
Here are some testimonials from our satisfied customers.

I began working with Juan Carlos Santana and Rhadi Ferguson about 5 months ago.  I first visited them at their gym in Boca Raton 6 weeks prior to the 2005 Judo Nationals/World Team Trials.  I was already in pretty good shape but there was something missing from my program.  I called this the "mising link."  Due to the short amount of time we had before my competition, they gave me a ramped or accelerated program.  The next 6 weeks were INTENSE, but they prepared me to decisively defeat the competition and make my 2nd World Team, after a 10 year lay off.

This is not the place to go if you're looking for a cookie cutter program.  Each program is individualized, tailor made and specific to your circumstances.  The fact that I'm a mother of 2 little ones and am 31 years old played into the program that was created for me.    Their holistic approach to training the elite athlete is one of the things I love about their program.  I have also been able to increase my strength, power, and endurance by dropping my work load!     

Anyone who wants to take their training to the next level should contact these guys.  I have found my "missing link," maybe you could find yours.

I look forward to continued success with you guys throughout my judo career.  QUALITY and ALL POWER!

I began working with Carlos Santana 3 years ago after completely tearing my bicep tendon. Carlos' rehabilitation program didn't include getting me back to "normal" but instead was designed to make me stronger, quicker, and more flexible than i ever was before. After rehab Carlos restructured my training to achieve the goals i had set for myself. One of the focal points of Carlos' training program is that is is tailored around the individual and the specific sport or activity inwhich they are training. Carlos constantly tweaked and updated my preparation and focused on my weak areas which has in turn prevented further injuries. Carlos is able to do this because he is devoted and takes personally the success of each athlete he works with.

The strength training, conditioning, and mental approach that Carlos worked on with me was instrumental in my winning the Abu Dhabi grappling World Championship this year. I also implement Carlos Santana's approach to training and techniques in training my own students in the new American Top Team Academy. I am honored to write this testimonial because Carlos Santana is the most committed, intelligent, and positive person I have ever worked with at any level. I own a great deal of my success to his perserverance and dedication to me and to being the best at what he does. Jeff "The Snowman" Monson

Thanks to Juan Carlos “JC” Santana and his strength and conditioning coaches at his Institute of Human Performance, I have been able to take my game to the next level.  The cutting edge training JC designed for me resulted in my championship wins at AFC, Ring of Fury and 2 ZST Japans.  Thank you IHP – you guys are the best!
