Ron Torbert 62 Making a Call

Ron Torbert

#62 NFL Official & Attorney

“I’m a big believer in what Lightning Fast Training Systems can do.

I first met Duane and the Lightning Fast team in 2014 when they began working with the NFL’s on-field game officials. What’s impressed me most in the three years we’ve worked with Duane and his staff is that they’ve taken the time to get to know us.

They studied what we do as officials, how we move, and the physical demands we face every week when we take the field. They’ve used that knowledge to develop specific training plans, along with recovery and nutrition recommendations to help us perform at a high level.

I’m convinced that Lightning Fast has helped us stay healthier so we can be at our best on the field”.

Dean Blandino

Senior Vice President of Officiating, NFL

“Working with Duane has taken our officiating program to the next level. Duane has provided tools and resources for our Game Officials covering the entire range of both physical and mental performance.

With Duane, our staff is better equipped to handle the demands of officiating at the highest level of the sport, and it has shown in their performance”.

F David Coleman Being Interviewed

F. David Coleman

Vice President of Officiating at the Pac-12 Conference

“Upon assuming my role as Vice President of Officiating at the Pac-12 Conference, Duane and Lightning Fast were brought on board to develop and launch similar programs for our officials.

After two years, Pac-12 football officials have shown improvement in performance due to their participation in the Lightning Fast program. The true value of such an endeavor is measured by the customized structure of the program that addresses and meets the specific health, fitness and mobility requirements of a unique group of athletes – Division One college football officials.

The program for baseball umpires was introduced in January 2017. The work that Duane and his organization have done for the Pac-12 is unique and the superior results have been excellent”.
