“My favorite part about Healthy Baller is one word: TRUST. In this amazing profession of working with student-athletes and building on team core principles the entire year, I know I can TRUST on the Healthy Baller Staff to generate the best from my players. Coach O’Donovan and his crew are first class. People are at the top level at their professions when they understand, evolve, love and commit to their jobs. This is what you get with Healthy Baller.”

“As soon as our team started to train with Matt and Healthy Baller, everything changed for our group in a very positive way. We became a much more explosive unit, and I believe it was the manner in which we went about our business in terms of strength training, conditioning, as well as nutrition. Matt had our guys so finely tuned into their bodies that they not only trained for the season, but for life. Our team became strong in so many ways outside of just basketball, and we owe a great deal of the credit to Healthy Baller.”

“Simply put: Healthy Baller has taken our program to a different level. We are proud to be one of the company’s initial clients and the results delivered through the well-designed and enthusiastically implemented training program speak for themselves: we have won two VISAA State Championships and two WCAC Conference Championships over the past three seasons. The key to our experience with Healthy Baller has been the sport-specific implementation of training techniques employed by Healthy Baller. They are not trying to train our team like football players, they are training our team to be girls’ lacrosse players and incorporating the latest technology and philosophies. As a result, not only has our performance improved, but our injury rates have plummeted. Our athletes are balanced, strong, fast, and agile. I cannot speak highly enough about our training experience with Healthy Baller.”

“It is with much pleasure that I write a testimonial for Blair O’Donovan from Healthy Baller. I have been privileged to work with Blair O’Donovan for over 10 years in China at the Nike All Asia Camps, in Australia with my professional National Basketball League (NBL) Teams, in the Philippines with National University College program and in Indonesia with professional and the National Senior Team. Blair has incredible knowledge of strength and conditioning at all levels from your players through to elite players and is highly regarded wherever he goes. Blair is a great communicator and extremely innovative in the way he approaches each program that he works with. Different countries have different resources and needs and Blair has an ability to improvise and provide the best service possible and get effective results. Blair by far is one of the best Strength and Conditioning coaches I have worked at in my career and would highly recommend him to anyone or program if your are seeking outstanding results with your team.”

“Working with Blair and Healthy Baller during the NBA Pre-Draft process was great because they helped put me in the best shape of my life. They did a tremendous job of making sure I was ready for NBA workouts and NBA Summer League while keeping my health a top priority through a strong balance of hard work as well as recovery.”

“Teddy is the man. I struggled going through 5 hamstring pulls in a 4-5 month period and couldn't get right until we started working together. He helped me rehab and I haven't had one hamstring pull since. He will always keep it real with you and advise you on what you should and shouldn't do while rehabbing. His exercises are challenging and he knows what he's doing because he's able to explain exactly how everything will help you. He always checks in on you to see how you're doing and make sure you're doing your exercises. I'd recommend him to anybody I know, best physical therapist I ever met!!”
