"Charmas Lee gets amazing results"
From Children to Adults, from couch potatoes to professional athletes Charmas Lee gets amazing results.
-- The Gazette Telegraph

The Speed T&F program "leaves no wasted time, many verbal rewards, and even the corrections left all the athletes feeling good."
I have seen the best of the best run a practice, Notre Dame, Washington State, Colorado State, and even the Denver Broncos. These are all football practice, but it is not easy to plan, and execute a great practice. No wasted time, many verbal rewards, and even the corrections left all the athletes feeling good. You have an excellent reputation, so good it was hard to believe until I witnessed it myself! My daughter is in great hands!
-- Bob Felice

"Mr. Lee has the ability to bridge the distance between what seems impossible and sucess..."
There are no words to express our gratitude for all Charmas Lee and his staff has done for our son Trenton. Coach Lee saw the potential in our son, and with the help of his well-structured program; our son became a 2nd place National hurdler and a JO-Nike All-American athlete. It was astounding watching our son shave seconds off his times at every meet. He started in June with a time of 58.04 and finished the season running a 54.17. The SPEED staff exposed Trenton to the importance of nutrition, goal setting, and positive mind control. Mr. Lee has the ability to bridge the distance between what seems impossible, into total achievement and success. We can’t wait to see what next year brings!
-- Kurt and Shelly Stringari

"Coach Lee works with his athletes from the 'inside out'"
In reflecting on the tremendous asset that the Speed Track and Field experience has been to our family, it is important to know that Speed Track and Field has supported and reinforced for our son the values which we continue to instill as parents. Coach Lee and his staff, as well as the family of runners which he has worked hard to cultivate, emphasize not only the value of strength, endurance and athleticism, but more importantly the value of integrity, hard work, respect and responsibility. Coach Lee works with his athletes from the “inside out”. He inspires the heart, mind and soul and then proceeds to strengthen the body through deliberate and intentional instruction and rigor. Speed Track and Field continues to elevate our son to a higher level of character, confidence, self-discipline and of course running. Our son’s experience with the organization will impact him for a lifetime, and we feel extremely blessed to have discovered such an amazing opportunity within our community.
-- Candace Campos, MA

"Charmas Lee is a quintessential coach who trains, motivates, inspires..."
We are so glad that our son has been able to participate in Speed T & F for the past three seasons. Charmas Lee is a quintessential coach who trains, motivates, inspires, and teaches the necessary elements it takes to be a winner, not only in sports, but in life. Our son has improved in his events each season he's been a part of this program and plans to continue through his senior year. We encourage every athlete who has the passion to win to take advantage of this program...don't put it off!
-- Rod and Chris Scheer

"Speed T&F coaches give positive feedback to parents and their athletes..."
Our daughter Gabrielle started running track in 2010. We heard about Speed T&F through a friend and we immediately enrolled Gabrielle her times have improved and it has made her a better athlete overall. This is Gabrielle's first winter season with Speed T&F she just loves her coaches. Speed T&F coaches give positive feedback to parents and their athletes and care about the athlete’s success. Charmas Lee is a great motivational speaker and we like that he holds each athlete accountable for their choices and encourages all the athletes to be better people on and off the track. It has been a great season and plan on many more with Speed T&F.
-- The Wilderman's

"I could count on the coaches to take care of my daughters..."
I will always be grateful to the staff at SPEED. I was late to pick up my two daughters one evening because I was hit by a texting driver. As I was being hauled off in the ambulance, without having picked up my girls, I was comforted in the fact that I could count on the coaches to take care of my daughters until a neighbor could pick them up. I knew I could count on them.”
Thanks for everything!
-- Dr. Sally Baron

Charmas Lee "has helped build a climate of excellence"
Coach Lee has been the Assistant Sprint Coach for Cheyenne Mountain High School for the past five years. His impact on our team has been tremendous. Not only has he helped produce 10 school records (over FIVE years) and countess Top 10 All Time Best CMHS Performances, but he has helped build a climate of excellence. "At the end of the day you will win" is an expression I hear often from coach and if I understand Coach Lee's words correctly, winning has EVERYTHING to do with conducting yourself properly and giving EVERYTHING you have to become better in all facets of life!

"Coach Charmas teaches discipline, respect, leadership"
My 10-year old son Will starting training with Coach Charmas and Speed T & F in the summer of 2007 and I noticed a difference right away. Coach Charmas has shown Will things to improve his speed and technique that immediately and directly translate onto the soccer field. Coach Charmas teaches discipline, respect, leadership and many other life lessons along the way and the kids have fun at the same time. I trust my kid with Coach Charmas and will take every opportunity for him to influence Will in his athletics and in his development as a young boy.
-- Bill Tibbitt, Collarelli Construction

"Charmas will impart a mental toughness and attitude that creates winners"
Charmas has coached all three of my children for many years. My daughter (17) runs track, my older son (19) played Lacrosse and my youngest son (11) plays soccer. The results? My daughter is flying around the country looking at some of the finest colleges in the world - My oldest son made the state all star lacrosse team and my youngest son plays up a year on the top U12B soccer team in the state. In addition to being the best sports performance coach around Charmas will impart a mental toughness and attitude that creates winners.
-- Al Alvares

"You are the standard other coaches have been held to"
We have had our son Garrett involved with your program for 2 seasons and this winter will be his third indoor season. Initially, Garrett did not know what to expect from this program and actually did not understand the first few practices. After the first season, he understood what you were trying to accomplish and I truly believe it has made him a better athlete. In all of the coaches he has had over the years, he feels, and we as his parents, firmly agree, you have been an inspiration to him as an athlete and you are the standard other coaches have been held to.
-- Ken Finn

"One can immediately detect a marked transformation..."
Several of our athletes have attended various programs within Building Better Bodies and/or Speed T&F. Before going through the program, they've typically just been "one of the athletes" on the team; however, upon returning, one can immediately detect a marked transformation in their overall approach to training and competition. Their focus, determination and, more importantly, the expectations that they have for themselves, have been elevated to new heights.
-- Mark Baines

"A deciding factor in both my physical and mental character"
My experience with Coach Lee has been a deciding factor in both my physical and mental character. Charmas' emphasis on physical excellence has led me to work harder, smarter, and with purpose at practice and to treat my body with respect out of practice. Charmas' emphasis on mental fortitude and strength of character has strengthened my attitude both on and off the track. The lessons learned, the dedication given, and a change of character flows into every aspect of an individual or athlete's life. Thus, Charmas' philosophy and being part of the Speed team becomes a family and school of thought, rather than just a program.
-- Margaret Rudy

"Speed is the essence of all sports"
Speed is the essence of all sports. Charmas Lee's programs will ensure the success of your athlete in sports. This character development will spill over to all aspects of you athlete's endeavors.
-- Douglas D. Schnorr

"...not only made her a better athlete, but also a better person"
Our daughter's first year of participating in track was 2008. A parent already enrolled in Speed T & F told us about the program and we heard nothing but positive information regarding it. During her first summer season she improved enough to qualify for the National Junior Olympics in North Carolina. Charmas Lee and the Speed T & F program has not only made her a better athlete, but also a better person. Kylee has much more confidence. The Speed T & F family is a great environment for any child.
-- Rick and Jeanette Elmer

"2nd, 3rd and 4th place finished at the Colorado 4A State Championships"
My son Trevor was 16 years old, a junior at Wasson High School and we knew he needed something extra to fulfill the athletic potential we saw in his future. After running indoor with Speed, he qualified in 4 events and went on to win a 2nd, 3rd and 4th place finished at the Colorado 4A State Championships.

"Nobody has instilled the confidence in my son"
My son has had many coaches through his athletic endeavors, but nobody has instilled the confidence in my son, enabling him to believe in himself and accelerate his athletic improvement.

"Thankful for the knowledge and training they receive."
When I say my prayers I often thank God for helping me decide to trust Charmas Lee with Trevor's athletic interests. I have 3 younger children who will all continue to train with Speed T & F even after Trevor leaves for college and I have no doubt that I will continue to be thankful for the knowledge and training they receive.

"He also trains them on how to be smarter athletes"
Charmas not only teaches these kids how to improve their physical tools, he also trains them on how to be smarter athletes, how to win the mental side of the competition. I will not trust my kids with any other team of track coaches.
-- Maureen Brown

"The fastest female 100 meter hurdler and 400 meter hurdler in Colorado in 2009"
Coach Lee's training led me to be the fastest female 100 meter hurdler and 400 meter hurdler in Colorado in 2009. I placed 5th in both hurdle events at the AAU National championships in 2009. Currently, I am competing as a freshman at a Division I university. Coach Lee's belief in me and my ability was vital to my success. I greatly improved my running abilities, but more importantly, I developed character. I learned how to win and how to lose, how to obey God when I really didn't want to, and how to give God the glory through my performance.
