Some kind words from some of the fantastic people I’ve had the pleasure of working with over the years…
Lance Goyke’s style is so ahead of the rest of the industry. It has been a real eye opener for me. He keeps your whole bodies health in mind while creating a sustainable workout. Because of his plan I am stronger and more flexible while balancing out my weaknesses. He is an outstanding master of his craft; incredibly bright and filled with mounds of health and fitness knowledge. He is the real deal in an industry full of wannabees and is the standard by which any trainer should be measured.
Working with Lance was an eye opening experience in its own right. Right from the get go it became clear to me that Lance has a grip on what needs to be done with training. His knowledge base ranges from program design, exercise biomechanics, and elements of cardio-respiratory conditioning that I myself as a trainer had no idea about.Lance was even able to reshape how I deadlift to fix errors with technique that I had been missing all along! Not only did I pull more weight as a result, but it also probably saved me years of back pain down the road. -Thanks Lance!
Had to get scrubs for work and used to wear a medium and now I wear an extra small! Also, I’m up to 190lbs on deadlifts!
Thank you for writing the kick-ass programs for me. I appreciate the challenging exercise selection and thoughtful progression.
IFAST and their clients are fortunate to have you as part of their team.
I just got back from a ski vacation and I have to thank the team at IFAST for helping me regain the ability to TURN LEFT! Thanks to everyone’s attention to detail, I can ski down the tight snow track paths without fear of a cliff on the right side 😉
I also came to IFAST seeking a fix for my tennis elbow and sore shoulder. Again, thank you. I can hit cross court from the deuce side without pain!
Lance has been one of my best friends for quite some time now, but was also my distance trainer and fitness confidant during my early formative years of weight training. Lance is knowledgeable, personable, and very articulate. As someone who trains high level athletes myself (hockey players), I’ve found that Lance’s ability to teach helps him connect with clients very well. This is extremely important for someone like myself, because if I’m going to send one of my OHL or NCAA athletes to someone for an assessment and subsequent training program, I need to know they will be taken care of; not just trained or coached properly, but taken care of. Lance possesses that unique balance of establishing rapport with a client without becoming too relaxed. I always saw progress throughout all of my programs with Lance, and more importantly I learned how my body was supposed to feel, move, function, etc. Lance helped me establish the structural foundation necessary to become a stronger, healthier version of myself, which is truly priceless not only in terms of athletic performance, but overall health and fitness long-term.

“Don’t let the baby face fool ya! Lance is wicked smart and can provide helpful corrections for exercises I’ve been doing for months.”
“He is so helpful and encouraging! He gives great cues that are not too overwhelming.”
I don’t think I could heap higher praise on someone than letting them work as a coach in my gym.
As a coach at IFAST, you are asked every single day to get results with your clients. But furthermore, you’re asked to do the things outside of the gym to make yourself better as well.
Lance Goyke’s work ethic, personality, and dedication to his craft are why I trust him to train our clients and athletes at IFAST. He’s a great young coach, and I expect him to continue to excel over the years to come.Mike Robertson, MS, CSCS, USAWPresident, Robertson Training SystemsCo-Owner, Indianapolis Fitness and Sports Training
I’ve had the privilege of watching Lance evolve from a gym mascot who cleaned our toilets to a teacher and trainer that we trust with our most valued commodity at IFAST, our clients.
I have known Lance as a friend and coach for the past 4 years. He has helped me grow to a high level in a movement and personal perspective. His capacity to individually tailor coaching methods is second to none. Rarely does Lance struggle at finding the best way to coach someone. His personality will make the process some of the most fun you have ever had. His drive and willingness to learn only ensures that he will continue to better himself in these areas. His excellence as a coach and individual is something I try to emulate in practice, coaching, and life.Zac Cupples, PT, DPT, OCS, CSCS, FMSCPhysical Therapist and Strength CoachEast Valley Spine and Sports Medicine Center, Chandler, AZ
I was fortunate to have worked alongside Lance for close to 3.5 years at Indianapolis Fitness and Sports Training. In fact, I was lucky to have him as my first intern when I started there full-time, which made my job much easier. Over that time period, I have watched Lance grow into a great coach! He is very knowledgeable, but is constantly trying to get better at what he does, and he is extremely passionate about helping his clients achieve their goal(s). This latter fact is one of the reasons I always recommend him if someone is looking for a coach/trainer.

Just this morning I tried the pullover technique with a client of mine, and I have to tell you it worked wonders!
Thank you so much! I have been struggling with this for almost a year.
