“SOAR of Columbus has been the difference for my son at the high
school level. The high school programs just don’t provide enough
training for athletes to excel. Mike and his staff developed a training
program that is built upon improving performance, improving focus and
developing a work ethic. Their combine training for football led to my
son getting recognition from college football programs and is a big
reason why he will continue his football career at the next level. SOAR
is the place you want your student athletes to train.”

"Thanks to many hours of personal training with Mike Kozak from
Soar of Columbus- Our son Brad has improved his speed, agility and
over-all strength greatly! His Vertical Leap went up several inches in
the first 6 weeks. Brad's Varsity Basketball Coach from Bishop Watterson
noticed a significant improvement during the off season. Thanks to Mike-
Brad's confidence level is where it needs to be! Our only regret- is not
finding Soar of Columbus years ago!-"

"Both of our sons work with Mike and Nate at SOAR of Columbus.
Our son, jack started after his sixth grade football season. His coach
told him “he could catch anything but needed to get faster.” We searched
and found SOAR and cannot be more appreciative of their knowledge and
what they have done to improve not only our boys’ skill sets, but their
confidence and health as well.
These trainers truly care about the well being of the athletes. They
work with us and communicate with us to ensure that the boys’ goals are
being met. Each of our sons incurred injuries while playing their
sports, and SOAR asked to see the diagnosis and then worked with the
boys long after the prescribed physical therapy had ended, so that they
could continue to get stronger and avoid future, repeat injuries.
We recommend and highly endorse SOAR to any athlete who wants to strive
for excellence while learning the proper way to get stronger and faster,
in a safe way. Lifting incorrectly can cause problems now and in the
future, and Mike and Nate educate and work with the athletes to make
sure they are taking care of themselves as they train.
We could go on and on about how much the boys have improved, but we
think the following comment says it all- It was an absolute blast
watching both our sophomore and junior sons on the field at the same
time on Friday nights! As any parent can imagine…."
Thank you , SOAR!

"At SOAR of Columbus, Mike Kozak and his team has given me the
edge I need to successfully compete in college softball. He creates an
individualized plan for each athlete that focuses on their needs. He
involves strength training, agility, speed and also correct diet and
nutrition. After six years of experience with Mike as my trainer, I have
reached levels of play that I know I would have never achieved anywhere
else. I highly recommend Mike to any male or female athletes looking to
be the best."

"As a Division I athlete and a high school all-american lacrosse player, I would not be where I am today without the help of Soar Fitness and the expertise of Mike Kozak. Early on in high school I knew I wanted to play at the Division I level. Being from an area where lacrosse wasn't as big as other states, I began training at Soar to use athleticism as my ticket into a program. Coupling a strong work ethic and the unmatched knowledge of Soar Fitness allowed me to maximize my athletic potential and achieve my goal of becoming a college lacrosse player. I would recommend Soar to any high school athlete ready to take their game to the next level and I can't thank Mike Kozak and the rest of Soar staff enough!"
