Speed School Review: Matthew Payne
The 7 years I spent training at The Speed School helped mold and shape the kind of athlete and person that I am today. From the first day, working out in someone else’s gym, to moving into a brand new facility and putting a stamp on the athletic training scene in the tri-cities area. I knew very little about the area when I moved to St. Charles in 2007 and was just playing football for the first time in my life. When I first met Joe I told him that I wanted to play varsity football my junior and senior years. He took me under his wing and taught me everything he knew. At the end of the day, you can throw the fancy training techniques out the window. The Speed School champions the tried and true methods of exceptional effort, incredible resolve and the desire to leave all the competition in the dust. Under Joe’s tutelage I became a better football player than I could have ever imagined. My 4-year career as collegiate football player at Hillsdale College is directly related to the instruction and guidance I received from him. I could not have asked for a better teacher or a better friend. NO PAIN!
