Your program is fantastic so far ---- I am really enjoying the different workouts. I love ...
1. they are different week to week, day to day
2. shorter in the week and longer on the weekend --- is great --- after a long day at work it is challenging to do a long workout
3. they challenge me in a way I haven't been challenged before. I have really just been doing a lot of long runs --- not much variety
It is fun to have days where I am doing core or cross train stuff.

Jeff, I wanted to profoundly thank you for the impact you have had so far on my life. When I came to you last year, I was unfit and unhealthy. And look me now - this year I completed Ironman 70.3 Zell am See and in a time better than I ever dreamt of. Your coaching has not only guided me to achieve this in a healthy and safe manner, it has given me new inspiration and motivation that I never knew was possible. I particularly like the way you made me find strength and motivation from adversity. I remember my first race of the year. It was meant to be a beautiful sunny May race. Instead it was 8 degrees, heavy rain and freezing cold water. Had it not been for you and your guidance I would have caved it. Instead you made me look at it from a positive angle and use it as training. You made me see that if you can pull through a race like that, then you can do a lot of other things too. For someone like me who travels a lot for business and often finds it hard to combine exercise with this and client entertainment it was valuable to know that you had once been in a similar situation. The exercises you gave me, which I could even complete in a hotel room meant there was never an excuse not to do it. So what's next for me? Well I have well and truly been bitten by the endurance sport bug. Your coaching has given me the tools to continue, to improve, to get stronger, to get smarter and to get fitter. A long the way I also hope I can inspire others like you inspired me. Thank you. Thank you for being part of this life changing journey. Jakob, Zurich
"Years ago I did a very expensive workshop in POSE running, but to be honest I didn't learn a thing, except that I thought that POSE running just wasn't for me. But when I was trying to get running again this summer, after having very painful problems with my calves for months, I was ready to try everything. My favorite book "Born to run" from Christopher McDougall led me again to POSE running. So I booked a training session with Jeff to have another go with POSE running.
Well, this time it just clicked - Jeff is such a great coach; he's able to show you so many different drills, so that one of them just does the trick. After a couple of days I was running without any pain and finally it was fun again! I was able to train properly for some weeks and decided, after doing another very good training session with Jeff, to run the half marathon at the Greifenseelauf. I started without any idea of how fast I could run after the time I wasn't training properly, resp. wasn't running at all, and finished with a new PB in 1:38:47! First time faster than 1:40! And on the course I've got compliments for my running technic... So, how cool is that?
Thanks Jeff, you're a fabulous coach and a real inspiration! You're doing such a great job and your enthusiasm and your "everything-is-possible-attitude" rub off on me and made everything possible.
I'll come to Zurich again for many more exhausting training sessions with your drills and bands..." Nina Glauser, Nutritionist, Winterthur
"I contacted Jeff to help me prepare for a 7 day Mt. Bike stage race. Not only did he prepare me for the race. He totally changed the way I view fitness. My workouts are now exciting and fun. And of course hard. Jeff's consistently positive attitude and challenging routines have brought me to a new level of being fit. No more boring routines sitting in a gym. Jeff showed me how to get outside and take advantage of my surroundings for my workouts. And I love it. Thank You Jeff." Jason Thomas, Ohio, U.S., Finisher of the grueling TransProvence Mountain Bike Race in France
Many thanks for joining us today and giving a great speech! You made our time at the Waldhütte Im Trubler for our mid-year rally a blast!" Stamford Schweiz, Switzerland
"Jeff provided me with a tailor-made triathlon preparation programme. He took some time to understood my current physical condition, needs (social life, etc.) and goals. The programme was fun to do and, most importantly, effective: I performed below the target time. Thank you, Jeff!!!." Miko, Zürich (finished first Olympic Distance Triathlon in 2011 on 6 weeks of training)
Dieses Jahr im März habe ich angefangen mit den Crossfit Endurance Stunden. Jeff hat mir nicht nur die Technik bei gebracht, auch hat er mich mental aufgebaut. Was ich letztes Jahr für unglaublich gehalten habe, konnte ich dieses Jahr schon zweimal umsetzten. Ich bin 10 und 21 km gelaufen.
Jeff hat mir aufgezeigt, dass alles möglich ist, er hat mich motiviert und inspiriert. Jeff hat ein sehr grosses Fachwissen uns ist ein super Trainer. Jede Endurance Stunde gibt mir Kraft und bereitet mir Freude. Die Stunde wird mit viel Enthusiasmus geplant und durch geführt.
Ich bin sehr dankbar, dass ich Jeff als Endurance Coach habe." Angie, Zürich
Jeff is a great inspiration and an excellent coach. He has loads of experience, but what he shares most with his clients is his endless enthusiasm and motivation to take on fitness challenges. His method of training is can be adapted to every schedule, and is structured in a way that has a positive impact on life-energy balance, while including a lot of fun and creativity in every workout.
I came to Jeff with a lingering running injury, frustrated after a year and half of unsuccessful physiotherapy. I considered myself an "ex-runner" with no idea how to get fit again without being able to bike, run, or swim at anything more than a low level of intensity. Not seeing that as much of a hindrance, Jeff soon taught me a new way of working out, with short, intense efforts that challenged the full body, without causing strain to my injury the way repetitive running and biking had. I trained this way through the fall and winter, with the workouts always varied and adapting to my feedback. I noticed clear improvements in my overall strength, speed, and agility, emerging in the spring far fitter than I could have imagined, and equipped with the knowledge of how to take that fitness further.
I look forward to continuing to train with Jeff at his Crossfit Endurance sessions in Zürich and to being inspired by his sport adventures!" Gwyneth, Zürich, Switzerland
Great coach, great workouts, great setting - love it!!" Lesley, Zürich
In addition to creating my physical training plan, Jeff also has had a profound influence on my nutrition and lifestyle by sharing tips, tricks, and methods gained through his personal experiences and his never ending thirst for health, nutrition and fitness knowledge. This information combined with my training plan has allowed me to gain a level of health and body composition that I did not think was possible as a father of a 1-year old nearing the age of 40. Sean, Atlanta, USA (Multi-time marathon and ultra-marathon finisher)
It really has made a great change for me. I feel more confident about a lot of things, and it is really helping my overall outlook on life." Kevin, Connecticut, USA (finished first 10K in June 2011 & finished first half marathon fall 2011).
Working in an office environment, my challenge to Jeff was to create a training schedule that avoided indoor spaces...and, wow!!, he has definitely managed that; even during Switzerland's tough winters. Training sessions are tailor-made to suit my work and travel schedules; and they are not just effective but very creative and great fun.
I cannot thank Jeff enough for the change he has triggered in my fitness, in my motivation to conquer even higher goals and, more important, in the levels of energy that I now display in any life activity." Santiago, Zurich (1st time Ironman Finisher: Ironman Switzerland 2011)
Great gym close to the nature. If your looking for an excellent coach to improve your strength, endurance and even your mental strength with special training challenges then you're at thre right place here! Stefan, Zug, Switzerland
I called Jeff to help my brother get the motivation back to train for his first triathlon (Zürich Triathlon). Jeff did an amazing job in giving him back the motivation that he had lost. Also he gave him a new variety of workouts which kept him focussed and improved his endurance. Jeff also helped with my brother's nutrition to help him stay lean and full of energy. My brother did great and most importantly he had a lot of fun! Thanks Jeff for your support we really appreciate it!! (Angie, Zug, Switzerland)

With your first class for free what have you got to lose? All levels catered to, just tell Jeff what you want to achieve. See you there!" Alex, Wädenswil, Switzerland
"Twelve girls from "Club der Töchter" met the challenge for a special Strongmanrun Preparation Training session and successfully complete a two hours in- and outdoor training under the direction of Coach Jeff Grant from Hillseeker Fitness. Indoor obstacle course, crawling underneath a net, jumping over an alligator pit, swinging on rings over a deep canyon - uff, done! Then to the next location outdoors where a balance part was awaiting us and the challenge of pulling a sled- we've never done somethings like THIS before! Would we only have known then what the third part of our special training was: Coach Jeff explained to us how to climb a rope and after this we learned about movements with names like bear walk, duck walk, squat cleans with sandbags, knees to elbow and so on... it was a raving success and the radiating faces of the girls did show some sings of endeavor but predominantly we had an awesome training experience with new learned skills, great group spirit and we got hungry for more...! Thank you Jeff for this extraordinary fun, challenging and totally intoxicating training! We learned and laughed a lot and yes, we were sweating even more!" Caroline, Club der Töchter Member,
Had medical today. Doc was impressed with the change. Full EKG showed strong heart performance. And he was well impressed with my rest heart rate of 53 whilst there.
I ran my fastest half marathon ever! Thank you very much for brilliant training techniques, fun running sessions and the great motivation boost.
