What Fellow Professionals Are Saying...

"I can put this quite simply. If you live in the Columbus area and are not training with Anthony Donskov at Donskov Strength & Conditioning, you need to ask yourself "why not". You have world class training right in your own backyard...take advantage of it. You won't find a more committed, more caring coach anywhere in the United States."
