I have received hundreds of great testimonials from people who have used the info on this site or trained using the jump science program. Unfortunately I did not think to save them. Right now (February 2013) I am doing my best to dig up the ones I can find and will continue to add more to this page as I receive them. They are posted exactly as I receive them, no editing.
"I just want to shout out a quick thank you for
all your work. I was struggling a lot with jumper's knee as a sophomore
in high school which led me to your web site (freetofly then). I ended
up buying your workout materials. Ever since I encountered your site, I
have learned so much and have been blessed to see gains because of your
program. On top of that, I have seen jumper's knee virtually
disappear. I will be a freshman in college this fall and I plan to
sprint on a D2 track team. I have to give credit to your work and
knowledge of athletic training as major contributors to the things I
have accomplished athletically. Most of all I give credit to God who
fashioned and sustains our bodies to his service. So thanks again for
all your work and for giving glory to God. Keep it up!"
"ive been doin that peaking phase you wrote for
me and its working great ive got my vert up to about 38" from 30"
without making any strength gains."
have been using Daniel's stuff for a while now and it's awesome. I can
only recommend it. Compared to many other coaches, Daniel actually cares
and helps you as good as he can. Whenever I had a question, I emailed
him and his replies were fast and detailed. I still have a lot of work
to do to get where I want, but the coaching materials work and I have
seen lots of improvement in my vert, speed as well as overall
athleticism. Thank you Coach Dan and keep it up!"
"just wanted to thank you for the site, after
two broken ankles in 2 years followed by a broken hand i gave up getting
back my jumping ability. in under one and a half months i gained over
six inches on my vert and 25 kg on my squat. i can touch a spot at 10
feet 4 inches where as before on a good day i could get close to the
"After stretching for two weeks and the first three weeks of lifting my improvement has been from 30" to 33-34"... Keep in mind I'm almost 40 yrs old... My jumper's knee is diminished daily now and only flares on hard workouts."
"thank you for sharing your knowledge, I needed that, my body was
breaking down at 39. Now it looks like I can be stronger than at 25.
I'm touching 11'4" with an 8'6" reach. Patellar tendonitis is on the
run from stretching every day for 45 days and squat style changes."
"yo jumptrainer ive been listening and doing all you exercises and its been working for me i went from a 14 inch vert to a 30+ "
"Since my last post to you I have put together a routine based on your
videos. Last night I through down my first dunk off of two feet. It just
takes patience motivation and proper mechanics like you said. In a
months time I'm pretty sure ill be doing windmills. I'm 6'0". Ill post a
video as a kind of "testimonial". I really appreciate all your
"since ive been doing your program, my vertical jump has increased by 10 cm....and ive been doing it only for 1 month"
"Just tested Two step vert and improved 5 and 5/8 inches in three weeks and a rest week."
"I went from barely touching the rim, to windmill dunks in about a year.
You provide great source of knowledge about athletic abilities"
Here's a video of a 6-foot, 1-inch guy who gained 8 inches from the jump science program.
This is a video of a Polish basketball player who increased his all-around athleticism using info from this site.
your program is just the best and only one thats working for me.
I tried for years to increase my height, but nothing was working.
I was always 5 inches under the rim, now after 2 month of ftf training I finally touched it.
Thank you man!"
"I increased my vertical jump 90cm so now I can hit the rim with my head!"
"in my opinion your site is one of the single most valuable and thorough resources available to any athlete in any sport period"
"The Stretches and exercises he shows to avoid and/or recover from the
jumpers knee are the best i had a really bad jumpers knee but 1 month
later i didnt feel anything of it anymore. it now is 4 months later and
i haven't had problems with my knees since"
"ive been following You Daniel since your firs movie on YT. Ive gained a
lot, broke a lot of rims with windmills thanks to you, but still
working hard for my first BTL."
"I fixed my bad deadlift form thanks to your instructional and now it's by far my fav exercise to do"
"Thanks to u Daniel im closin in on my double bodyweight squat not
breaking out of form! Keep up great work! love vids and articles."
"Thank you for the superb explanations on correct Squat technique. Very enlightening... Very helpful also, because they help me recover from a double knee ligament inflammation/condition"
"I did your program for 2 Weeks on a meniscus tear which I didn't know at the time. My knee got stronger and I was back to dunkn. surgery next week, after I heal. I'm back on your program for sure, cheapest program out there and the best."
"Just wanted to share a video with you. I was barely dunking when I started on program C four weeks ago. Here is how it finished:
Now I can dunk one handed with one step and two handed with my approach!
"You are probably the best instructor out there. I've learned so much from your videos and articles. thanks man"
Tom is a friend of mine who decided to give jump training a try for a short time before he graduated from college and moved out of town. He's a pretty good natural athlete and was able to earn some great results in a short time.
Chris is a friend of mine and a fellow sports training and fitness expert. He had a 28-inch vertical when he began training with me. He reached 38 inches after about a year of training with a few breaks and eventually reached 40 inches.
Al was a basketball player at my university. He trained with me for less than two months during the summer before his senior season. He made some pretty big strength gains and added about three inches to his vert in his first three weeks of training. The improvements he made stayed with him and helped him through the whole basketball season.
