To me, Jeff is so much more than a businessman, or strength coach, and so much closer than a friend. Over the last two decades, I have watched him grow from a small-town college student in Pennsylvania to a proud father of two wanting to be the best role model possible for his children. The passion he has for his career is only matched by the love he has for his family and friends, which I have experienced first-hand. Jeff stood by my side through one of the darkest moments in my life and never wavered in his support and encouragement. He inspired me to keep pushing through the hard times and reassured me he would be beside me every step of the way, and for this, he will always have a special place in my heart.

Meeting Jeff in the summer of 2005 reporting for football camp at Lock Haven University was a life-changing event. My father and I pull up to the dorms my freshman year for football fall camp and I see this big dude standing there wearing his multi colored Oakley shades, lol. Little did I know that we would pretty much be connected at the hip for the next 4 years. Jeff being a natural born leader, that has the ability to motivate, inspire and vocalize that sentiment to individuals is something that puts him above others. The words “Aight One More” or “We’re Not Done Yet” will forever live in my soul. Seeing Jeff at the lowest of lows and highest of highs has allowed me to appreciate and admire the father, friend, and God fearing man that he has matured into today. Seeing the way he grinded through that adversity and continued to push the needle for success in his professional and personal life in general, has been truly remarkable, and I am extremely proud of him!

I’ve known Jeff Eaton since the Fall of 2006. I remember the first time I met him at Lock Haven University with his mirror reflected Oakleys on and super high energy. I just remember saying to myself, man this guy has so much energy that he has to be on something haha. But what I quickly realized was that he was on cloud 9 of life. Jeff has always been a person that lives in the moment and embraces it good or bad. He’s someone that’s hard working and puts their all into everything they do. When Jeff commits himself to something he allows his imagination to take off and before you know it his passion and creativity take over. One of the principles that I have noticed in Jeff that has made him so successful in life is he doesn’t accept failure. He’s heard the word no or not now so many times and broken through that wall that he only knows how he’s going to turn it into a yes. So if you are looking for 110% of someone that’s going to deliver he’s your guy.

I first met Jeff my freshman year in college, at Lock Haven University. He was the captain of our football team. Straight out the gate Jeff encouraged the very best out of everyone here interacted with. From jump street he's always been one to seize the day. He lives and breathes excellence and perseverance. While most people wake up and think of what they're going to wear to work, Jeff thinks of who can he have an effect on. He's the embodiment of being a positive impact. I assure you he will always find a way to the desired results. "Quit" , and the phrase "I can't do it" aren't even in his vocabulary. He will never disappoint and he will never leave you alone.

 I first met Coach Eaton at the CSCCa National Conference in May of 2018 through a few mutual colleagues. At the time, all we had in common was that we were both Strength & Conditioning Coaches and we spent some years in the state of Indiana. That was all it took for us to cultivate and grow a relationship that has flourished in the years since. He is the definition of what today’s Strength & Conditioning Coach should be – authentic, honest, inclusive and committed to elevating our field to benefit both Student-Athletes and Coaches. His commitment to development provided me with an excellent platform to speak through over the COVID-19 quarantine period via The Strength Depot. That opportunity provided me not only with a positive professional experience, but an extra boost of confidence in myself as a Strength & Conditioning Professional. In addition to being a fantastic Strength & Conditioning Coach, he is a first-class person and somebody that I am proud to call a friend. Coach Eaton will be a catalyst for positive change within our field in the years to come.

He understands the hardships of life and puts in the time and effort to teach those how to make the best of it. Go to my guy and you will not be disappointed!

Coach Jeff Eaton flat out is one of the most upstanding, professional and positive individuals you will ever meet. We worked side by side at Purdue University, co-programming and co-coaching, sharing very similar philosophies and values in the way we guide, challenge and develop athletes.
Coach Eaton is high energy, wickedly smart, and always does what is right and in the best interest of his athletes/clients and organization he works in and with. Quite frankly, I am in admiration of how every day he could come to work day in and day out, unfrazzled by anything going on outside of his mission and passion to serve others. Nothing ever gets him down. Being with him on a daily basis challenged me to grow into a better, more emotionally intelligent person and of course smarter strength coach.
Coach Eaton will UPGRADE YOU! Hands down. He knows how to dig deep inside and “pull it out of you” as we as in the coaching world. He is a true leader, motivator, and inspiration to all whom cross his path. I am so proud of his coaching evolution and the moves he has made to not only grow in his personal and family life but also impacting everyone he comes across in his professional life. If you EVER have the opportunity to be coached by or work alongside Coach Eaton, consider yourself blessed! I miss him every day!

I first met Coach Eaton as a professional intern at Purdue University. Within the first 20 minutes of meeting him I knew he brought the positive, reluctant energy that I needed in my life. He helped me push past barriers both physically and mentally as well as professionally and personally. If there was a day where I wasn’t feeling right, and there were many, he found a way to turn that around and bring out my best side within minutes. Coach Eaton is the kind of Coach that expects your best every day, and he will find a way to get it out of you!
Although Coach Eaton may look intimidating, he has the biggest heart of any Coach I’ve ever been around. Coach Eaton is the kind of Coach/Mentor every person should surround themselves with! I am very happy I crossed paths with Coach Eaton.
