What People Are Saying About Prevail

Sondra Blockman, BS Kinesiology
Westmont College Graduate 2011

“I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge with us [interns]. It meant a lot to me and I wanted you to know that your time did not go unappreciated for one moment. I learned so much and had a great time learning it. I wish that I could have had more opportunities like that. What you’ve taught has stuck more than most things I’ve learned in the classroom…it’s more interesting to me and it’s obvious that you’re passionate about it…plus your sense of humor helps! You are a great teacher and amazing trainer! One of the things I appreciate most is how your faith is apparent in your training ethics. You are a man of God, and I hope you continue to do amazing things for people.”

Our daughter, Brittany Jewett, a student at Westmont College and a soccer player, had a Fulkerson Osteotomy knee surgery at UW Hospital in Seattle. After the surgery she wanted desperately to return to the soccer field at Westmont.

Since Brittany needed intense rehab, she chose to do this at Prevail with Chris. Each time she had rehab she called home full of excitement relating to us how positive and encouraging Chris was with her. She showed great progress and a good part of this progress, I believe, was due to Chris’ outlook for her future. She related that Chris conveyed this positive viewpoint in a very personal way to her.

As her Mom, I was kept informed through emails from Chris continually keeping me “in the loop” where Brittany’s work-outs and progress were concerned. My husband and I felt that we were made an integral part of Brittany’s program and progress from miles away.

We would recommend Prevail and the sensitive care given to their clients without hesitation. In our opinion, Brittany’s recovery was a positive experience for her for which we are very grateful.

Santa Barbara High School
I started training with Chris Ecklund and Prevail Conditioning after my sophomore year in high school.  I am now in my second full year of training with Chris and it has been an incredible experience.  As a sophomore, I was called up to play varsity baseball at Santa Barbara High School.  After that season, I realized I had to do something more if I was going to succeed at that level.  I have never been a very big, strong, or fast guy and after playing at the highest high school level these weaknesses became very evident.  I decided to work with Chris at Prevail that summer.  We worked hard at building up speed and quickness, increasing overall strength, and improving nutrition.  During that summer, I noticed results and am continuing to notice results two years later.  I have really enjoyed the workout regimens that Chris has put together during this time.  He puts in the time to assess each client and develop specific workouts and exercises that cater to their individual needs.  These workouts and exercises vary depending on the individual.  I have had many nagging injuries over the past two years, but through Chris’ expertise, we have been able to train and increase strength while healing and not risking further injury.  Chris allowed me to heal quicker and get back out on the field faster.  Now, as a senior, I have gained 25 pounds of muscle and increased my speed tremendously.
I am grateful to Chris and Prevail Conditioning for the time they have invested in me.  I would recommend Prevail to anyone and everyone for personalized attention and training.  It is a very motivating environment for both athletes and non-athletes that are looking to improve their physical fitness.  It is especially great for those who are a little less self-motivated and need to be pushed, such as myself.

Ed Drayton on Rehydrate, Muscle Fuel and Post Workout Recovery Shake after a 3 day Tournament:


Rehydrate & Muscle Fuel worked like a charm. The Fuel was a big surprise. Very smooth and consistent. Post Recovery did its thing. The team won our first three games plus one playoff game, so 4 in a row. I wanted to give the 8 remaining Muscle Fuel to the teams most in need. It was our 5th game and were all feeling it, but had to win two more. Turns out we had nothing left after using our starters too often the games before. Good tourney for me personally. And most of all the products from Advocare were my secret weapon. They allowed me to do what I can without over doing it.”
“I have the fuel and that is working out great! Can’t say enough about the products. But if I did I would say that I use to put out 100% and then have to push which took a lot of energy. Now I have more energy and staying power at 100%, so when I push I don’t feel like I’ll break or hurt myself. So way more confidence.”

During a century bike ride, my best cycling outfit was shredded when I crashed and fractured the neck of my femur. After emergency surgery and spending over 5 months on crutches, I realized what a gift it is to be able to move freely without fear of injury. So as soon as my physical therapist gave me the green light to join Chris’ conditioning class, I jumped at the chance to rebuild my muscles. Since then, I have come to appreciate that the benefits of his training far exceeded my expectations. Chris’ classes and consultations have played an integral role in rebuilding my confidence with physical activities.
When Chris and I met for a personal fitness consultation, I told him that one of my main goals is to minimize the risk of serious injury while exercising or cycling. I also asked him to teach me how to run correctly and mentioned that my dream goal was to enter a bike race. Chris designed a perfect program for me to work towards my fitness goals. I have enjoyed every workout. Chris’ class combined with his training advice has been instrumental in my return to activities. I feel safe in class and much more confident in other physical activities.

As I returned to my previous fitness level on the bike, I crashed during a training ride and broke my scapula. It was amazing how quickly it healed, and I was able to get back to my usual physical activities in a short period of time in order to attend a training camp for cyclists. I believe this is partly due to the workouts designed by Chris, because a cyclist with strong, balanced muscles will fair better in the event of an accident.

Now my cycling workouts are planned around Chris’ classes, and I really look forward to working out with him. I love moving from exercise to exercise and working as hard as possible during the circuits. At the end of class, I feel exhilarated and a little sad that it’s over. I’ve come to realize that the workout is quite thorough and safe. One of the best features of the class is that people can work at different ability levels. In particular, the class has been invaluable for my return to more advanced impact activities. Thank you Chris for all the corrections on my landings, stances, and knee positions. And thanks for helping me achieve my dream goal: I entered a criterium bike race, and even though I was only in the lead briefly and my calves were cramping towards the end of the race, I stayed with the group. There were even a few moments when time seemed to stand still and I felt great, absorbed in the bright colors of the uniforms and the sounds of the spinning gears.
