We started to hear about Power Source so we decided to check it out during their off season to keep them in shape. I assumed they would last a few months and they would be all set with it but just hit a year this month and they are still going strong. I have seen a huge improvement in the boys this past year. They are definitely stronger but more importantly I have seen a huge confidence boost in them especially in my older son*.
My boys have the upmost respect for all the trainers there and truly care how they are seen in each of the trainer’s eyes. There has never been a time that I have had to convince my boys that they need to go there. They absolutely love it!

Right from the first day, Coach Jim was so inviting. Most kids do not look forward to working out, but he changed that for me. He cracks jokes and can be funny but is also coaching you so you improve your skills since that is what we are really here for. I enjoy joking with Coach Jim, telling stories to lighten up the atmosphere, and making fun of his Philadelphia Eagles!
The workout part of the program involves all types of different training. It’s not repetitive like going to a gym. We do drills that really make you want to improve without even knowing it, like trying to hit the ceiling with a medicine ball.
It’s not just bench pressing and running, so the training is not boring. That’s another thing about the program, our workouts change all the time. Coach Jim gives you exercises to develop what you need to work on, like upper body strength or speed. Between the variety, the fun, and the improvement working out with Coach Jim is something kids look forward to.” – Noah T, age 14
We all were looking for a structured way to prepare us for our various sports seasons and to be healthier.
Power Source has helped us improve our strength, stamina and flexibility targeted to our individual sports, while keeping us on the playing field through multiple drills designed for our specific sports*.
We like the small group sizes, the interesting drills and the fun instructors that motivate us. The instructors are always willing to have interesting conversations while keeping you at a productive pace.
We now have the confidence to compete at a high level. Our new athletic abilities have helped us to succeed in making the teams that we strived for.

“Since I was a teenager, Jim has been custom designing elite speed, strength, mass, and power workouts to match my sport-specific needs. No other strength & conditioning coach has a better program, or a better price.”
– Stevie Moses, pro hockey player
Working with Jim Herrick for three years helped me excel and reach my hockey goals*. He knows all aspects of training, from the power side to speed and agility.”

I have definitely noticed improvement in foot speed in all the boys, which has directly translated into better defensive positioning as they shut down players driving to the basket, and provide better help defense. Their increased upper body strength has also led to more rebounds and loose ball possessions*.
And not only is it a good team bonding exercise, but they’re having a blast!
We’re talking about 12 and 13 year old boys who look forward to the weekend so they can sleep in…yet every Saturday morning for months we’ve had 10 to 11 boys ready for their workout bright and early. Not one parent has had any problems dragging their kids to Power Source. And in fact, its probably been just the opposite with kids pushing parents so they won’t be late. I guess that alone is a testament to the success of the program.
And when the boys are walking out of the building with big smiles, joking about who won the last competition, and not really thinking about how hard they just pushed themselves…WOW! Getting kids at such young ages, looking forward to working out and staying healthy…that’s just great stuff!” – Tom Allain, Leominster 7th Grade Central Mass Basketball Coach
The drills in Jim’s program helped my balance, coordination, speed and power. With the guidance he provided and my commitment to the program, it helped me earn a Division I college football scholarship*.”

My son had an unusual injury this year with his shoulder. He was worried that he would not be able to continue with the program and get ready for the upcoming football season. That was not the case. My wife and I explained the situation to Jim and he was more than accommodating with his training to go hand and hand with his physical therapist. Thanks to the program “J” is ready for the season and in camp right now*.
Both of my kids are more committed now to working out and doing it correctly. I feel that the program stresses to the person training that there is a correct way of working out and an incorrect way. I am confident that no matter where my two kids train – at school, home, or the gym – they will use the program and techniques from Power Source and get the most from that work out.
And when you can get an 11 and 14 year old out of bed in the summer at 6:00 AM to work out, you know they’re getting something out of it and enjoying it!
I would recommend this program to all athletes to get the most out of what sport you are in. I would like to thank Jim again for his commitment and time to the kids and the program.” – Chris Valliere, parent of two three-sport athletes
Power Source has helped me with a lot of things with my favorite sport, football. Jim helped me improve my speed and agility, helped me get stronger and also taught me how important it is to keep a strong body. Being in this program also helped me improve my confidence and make new friends. Joining Power Source is one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.” – Brendan J, age 11
I was very pleased with my son’s enthusiasm for the program right from the first moment. The coaching was positive and individualized, and workouts were informative, but most importantly for a young athlete, fun.
My son received a lot of insightful feedback on his athleticism and his mindset toward physical endeavors. He felt appropriately challenged physically and mentally, and finished the program with the confidence and desire to continue conditioning work on his own. I frequently catch him teaching the games he learned at Power Source to his friends because he had such a great time!” – Carrie Duff, parent of youth football player
We chose this program because of Jim Herrick. Jim is wonderful with the kids and my boys just think he’s awesome. He’s a true role model and the kids look up to him.
As a parent, I was very impressed with this program. My sons were both part of the summer program and enjoyed it. They always looked forward to going, and even practiced at home what they learned at training. My boys are learning how important it is to be healthy and physically fit in order to play sports.
I would recommend this program to everyone I know who has kids. Staying healthy and physically fit is the key to a happier lifestyle.” – MJ Allain, parent of 2 football, basketball and baseball players
