Training with Jeff Meland took me to the next level, literally. Jeff’s outstanding training regiment put me in the best shape of my life. I increased my strength, speed, and weight, while dropping body fat. His coaching was excellent and helped me excel. I can confidently say that I would not be where I am today and to be able to play professionally for 12 seasons without the help of Jeff. Even after my knee surgery Jeff was able to put a plan together to get me back on track. On a personal level, it was a pleasure to train with Jeff.

Primal Power is the place to be if you want to get stronger and faster. Jeff Meland creates an unparalleled environment that breeds success in athletics and in life in general. I came in to Jeff's place scrawny and slow. After the last year and a half working with him, I have put on lean muscle and gotten much faster. Primal Power has prepared me for the next step in my athletic career as a collegiate athlete

I have been a competitive powerlifter for 15 years. I was coached by Jeff and used his Primal Power percentage based training system to get ready for my last powerlifting meet. I not only won 1st place in my weight class but won the overall best lifter award. I would not have been able to do nearly as well as I did in the competition with out Jeff's coaching up to and on the day of the competition. By using the Primal Power percentage based training system I have been able to put 40+ pounds on my squat, bench and deadlift adding well over 100 lbs to my overall total.

I started going to work with Jeff almost two and a half years ago. Since then I have seen game changing results. Because of the work that I have put in at Primal Power, I have become a stronger, faster, and more explosive athlete. I began working with Jeff as a junior in high school and have since gone on to be recruited as an athlete by many different schools. I decided to go on to play collegiate lacrosse at Augustana College, which is a division three school in Illinois. As I went into my freshman year, I found that because of the athleticism that I had developed with Jeff I was able to transition very easily to the higher level of play in college. I was able to find success as a freshman, becoming a starter after only two games in college, and owe a lot of my success to Jeff for helping me prepare for the faster and more physically challenging game at that level. I continue to work with Jeff when I am home from college and find that he always helps to push me to become better every time I work with him.

Jeff is great! He pushes and challenges you in the workouts. He focuses on technique before moving on to harder movements/lifts. He also has been coaching me for power lifting meets, and I wouldn't have it any other way. See Jeff if you want well programmed workouts catered to your goals!

I Have been working with Jeff since February 2016. I was in a downhill ski accident and broke my right femur and cracked my right hip. I had surgery immediately in Aspen, Colorado. I started Physical therapy the day after surgery. I did workout at a health club but I felt like I needed one on one training to get me back doing the things I used to do. Since training with Jeff I have made significant progress with my strength and flexibility! I am 70 years old adn will continue to stay active with this training. I highly recommend Jeff no matter what your age!
