“Connor LaVallie was an absolute pleasure to work with. I had the pleasure of playing some college football with him for a year or two and witnessed his dedication and passion for bettering his mind and body. Upon graduating I began to want more from myself and my workouts, missing the competition of football. After seeing a picture of Connor prepping for a show, I knew that would be my next endeavor. From that point on, he became a real-life inspiration for me. I wanted to look like Connor LaVallie, no longer like some stranger in a magazine. I began working with him in preparation for a bodybuilding show almost a year in advance. And although I was in a different state, Connor was available at a moment’s notice. I could not say enough about this. I know multiple times he was on vacation, or finishing up a semester, and there wasn’t an email, or a phone call, or a question that I had that went unanswered. He took my body to limits I never thought I reach. Strength, size, weight, all increased, then upon dieting, I reached my full potential. I couldn’t have been happier with the product he put it, and in turn, couldn’t have been happier with the body I developed as a result. There were times that I didn’t think I was making the changes necessary, or I slipped up on my diet, and Connor was always there, letting me know that these things happen, and assuring me that if I continued to follow his instruction, everything would come together. He was an incredible coach, motivator, and I absolutely would call him a friend. With it being my first show, I had some nerves, and again, he assured me that if I followed his instruction, everything would work out; and he was right. He was the first to call me after my show, and timed it so perfectly that I had just walked out of the building. He made me feel like I had just accomplished greatness. Connor LaVallie was absolutely the best coach I could have had, and I still follow his principles, even though I am not preparing for a competition. Thank you, Connor” - Lee Fabiatos, J.D., New York
