"Will Turner was our strength and conditioning coach with the Yale Men’s Hockey Team for two seasons and he did an outstanding job for us. He is knowledgeable, innovative, enthusiastic, and a great motivator. Will understands that each athlete is unique with different needs and personalities, and he created individualized training programs and found ways to reach our players on a personal level. Because of the way our team plays, fitness is vital to our success and Will Turner was a key contributor to our hockey program at Yale. We wish he was still with us here at Yale."

"Our elite lacrosse program had the opportunity to work with Coach Turner this past summer and fall in conjunction with our summer club practices and fall clinics. Coach Turner worked with our club program's schedule to allow players the option to train before or after practice in areas such as injury prevention, speed/agility and strength training. Our players and parents could not have been more pleased with the unique opportunity our players had to train with a former D1 Strength and Conditioning Coach. As many of our players continue on to play at top D1 and D3 programs, having Coach Turner's expertise offers an unparalleled experience for our club families. Coach Turner also provided a combine testing day for our recruitable athletes which gave them clean cut numbers to send to college coaches and aid in their recruiting process. Coach Turner would go above and beyond and come to support our players at local games to watch them in action in order to provide feedback and even more specified training for our athletes. We are incredibly lucky to offer year-round training with someone of his expertise, passion and overall knowledge."

"During my years working with Will I was always impressed with his ability to relate to our athletes on a personal level while also being able to get the most out of them physically. Working with today's athletes is a unique challenge which Will was constantly able to navigate with professionalism and expertise. The on-ice results were noticeable throughout our team, regardless of position, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his program to anyone."

"Will played an essential part in my development as an athlete. He is hardworking and dedicated to providing a program that will both challenge you and allow you to grow. After each summer with Will I felt strong, conditioned and prepared for the upcoming season. I can't thank him enough for everything he has done for me as my trainer and friend."

"Having Will as my strength coach for three years helped shape me into the athlete I am today. From the moment I stepped onto campus as an anxious First Year, Will was an ally, there to offer care when I needed support and motivation when I needed to be pushed. Along with many other Yale volleyball players, Will helped inspire in me a lifelong passion for lifting, pre-hab, stretching, and conditioning. In large part thanks to Will, my teammates and I didn't fear being muscular or strong female athletes, we relished it. YVB grew so much as a program under his watch and so did I. I'm forever grateful to Will for his positivity and kindness and for laying the foundation for a lifetime of strength, fitness and good health. "

"Coach Will is a smart, dedicated coach who just continues to impress with his knowledge and passion for our field. The second you meet him, you can see how hard he works to create a blueprint to help each individual athlete excel based on their own strengths and needs. His attention to detail and ability to work with any population makes him one of the best coaches around. You've come to the right place."
