“I trained at various locations across Fairfield County throughout my high school and college careers. All of the facilities I experimented with before SPU set me up with an inexperienced trainer and an unstructured workout regime. I started training with Alex during winter break after my sophomore season in college. In that month at SPU, I went from 214lbs to 236lbs. I trained with Alex the following summer leading up to my junior season and went on to become an All-American that Fall. When my college career came to a close, I signed with an agent who flew me down to Florida to train at Barwis Methods. There, I trained with top athletes across all sports like Jarvis Landry and Robbie Lawler. Even at one of the top facilities in the country with highly regarded trainers, I found myself frustrated at times with the workout program and I would look to Alex for advice. Alex’s approach is one of a kind and he is sure to hold you accountable. I owe him for all of my successes, both on and off the field.”

“The Drayson Quarterback Academy serves me as a place of refuge. I wake up every morning eager to perfect my craft whether it is on the field or in the weight room. There is a one of a kind working environment here at SPU instilled by the fellow athletes that are constantly motivating and pushing each other to be great. Alex Drayson uses a unique coaching style that is comprehensive and not only gives you a better understanding of weight lifting, but allows you to stay healthy and perform at your best. Alongside the results, the knowledge I have gained and the friendships I have built are priceless.”
-Krishtjan Frrokaj, Division I College Quarterback, High School All-Conference
"Throughout the years I have been trained by numerous coaches, numerous coaches who have made me a better player and a more confident individual. Matt and Alex have played a massive role in my development both in the weight room and on the field. Every time I stepped into their facility, I knew it was time to get work done, and become a stronger player. With months of training, including speed, strength and conditioning, I made it to where I've always wanted to be, a collegiate athlete and a national team player. Many coaches lose contact with their athletes, and think their work is done once they leave. Alex and Matt however, have kept in contact and have always been around when I had questions, or needed some motivation to push through. These trainers are two of the best I have come across, and cannot thank them enough for all they have done for me."

"While SPU has been a fantastic experience for my son physically, more importantly, it has prepared him better mentally to handle success and failure. I am grateful to Alex and his staff for all they have done to help prepare my son for the real world and it’s challenges. Thank you SPU."
-Darden Livesay Jr., Parent
"I worked out with, as well as worked with, Alex Drayson and Matt Migiano for a couple years and some of their important strong suits include their determination, passion, intelligence, and ability to provide an elite athletic experience. When I first started working out as a junior in high school, I learned all the proper forms to weight train from Alex and Matt, as well as invaluable information about how to become an elite athlete. Their methods of flexibility, mobility and full-body strength are cutting edge, and I would not have rather learned athletic development from anyone else other than them. The combination of Alex and Matt’s athletic development strategies have helped me preform at an elite level and as the starting outfielder on the Dickinson College Baseball Team, I accredit most of my athletic growth to Alex and Matt’s core concepts."
-Mike Devivo, Dickinson College Baseball Team
"SPU is the best football training I had, way better than the Giants camp. Alex is tough but fun, he really knows how to get you prepped for the season - my team coaches were really impressed with the things I learned in the off-season. Working out with him is awesome!"
-George Edwards, Youth Football Player
"I am stronger and fitter than I have ever been. My workouts are always challenging but I know I am in safe hands. Matt stresses correct form and technique to keep me injury free while pushing me to achieve more than I ever thought I could. I have done crossfit, kickboxing, running, exercise classes and more - this is the best strength and conditioning training out there."
-Louise Edwards, Personal Training Client
"I went to Matt following a back injury. He worked with me on corrective and strengthening exercises that sped up my rehabilitation and got me back to where I needed to be and in better shape!"
-Chloe Edwards, Personal Training Client, Equestrian Athlete
“I have worked with Matt Migiano for 3 years to lose weight and understand how nutrition can be influential in becoming a healthy person. Matt met with me to understand my goals and then made a special program that would allow for those goals to be accomplished. Matt was very encouraging and showed a genuine interest in seeing me succeed.
The one thing that Matt asked was for me to be consistent. By doing this, I was able to see steady progress and turn the program into a lifestyle. Matt made me understand that having good eating and exercising habits would help enhance other parts of my life. He could not of been more right. If you are looking for a coach who puts his clients first and gives you every opportunity to succeed, then Matt Migiano is your guy!”
-Jeff Brown, Nutrition and Training Client
I have trained with Matt for just about 4 years. Before I started training with Matt I was indifferent to the entire process. Every trainer I had been with in the past used the same cookie cutter approach to personal training; Everybody did the same thing over and over again. Matt takes the time to design a personalized fitness plan for each of his clients and he makes sure each person knows why they are doing each specific exercise and that they are doing it carefully and correctly to avoid injury. I highly recommend Matt Migiano to anyone who wants to take their fitness to the next level.
