Daniel Murrietta walked through the doors of Champion’s QUEST back in January of 2016 with short-term goals of improving his speed and strength. Daniel is a 13 year old soccer player for CDA Slammers, where he plays striker and midfield. His long-term goals are to play soccer at the high school and college level. Daniel’s parents and coaches have already seen a big change in Daniel since beginning training at Champion’s QUEST.
“Daniel now plays with more confidence and aggressiveness on the field when going for the ball. He’s also more likely to throw his body around when fighting for the ball. His soccer coach has also seen this increase in confidence and told me that Daniel has been a completely different player these last few months.” -Rich Murrietta
“I’ve seen a change in Daniel’s speed, agility, and quickness on the field. It also looks like he is stronger in his core and doesn’t get pushed off the ball as easily as before. The biggest change has been in Daniel’s confidence and I’ve been wondering what he has been doing lately.” -Daniel’s soccer coach.
At Champion’s QUEST, Daniel attends Strength and Power clinics to develop his explosiveness on and off the ball. Daniel has already made a 67% increase in his athleticism since beginning training. He has been applying his strength and power to his soccer game and it has been paying off. Daniel competed in the Cerritos Memorial Challenge Cup this past weekend and his CDA Slammers team advanced to the Quarter Finals.
Keep up all the hard work Daniel!
