Our sports performance consultations are uniquely designed to address the physical, emotional, and mental components of physical fitness, training, and competition. We will carry out a complete physical evaluation with an emphasis on endurance, coordination, muscle tone, and health history. We will also analyze non-physical factors that could be affecting athletic performance, such as stress levels and attitude. Your consultation may also include some testing procedures, which will ultimately help us form recommendations for you.

We recommend that athletes get periodic sports performance consultations on a regular basis as the intensity of training usually increases and decreases throughout the season and for event preparation.
