Athletic Development & Sports Medicine. Done Right.
Strength |Performance|Injury Prevention
Strength & conditioning, athletic performance, and injury prevention are inherently intertwined. Each is connected to and bolsters the others. Being stronger with greater endurance makes you a better athlete. Being a better athlete and competing at higher intensities and against better players, makes you even stronger. Underlying all of this is being injury free and healthy - after all, you can't play or give it 100% if you're hurt.
That's why our motto is:
The Best Injury is the One that Never Happens
Injuries suck and unfortunately the prevalence of exercise and sports-related (ESR) injuries is increasing. ESR injuries reportedly account for up to 52% of new injuries within certain healthy and active adult populations, and 5.5 million youth athletes are treated for injuries each year (and those are just the reported ones).
With staggering statistics like those, the message is clear: Reducing injury risk is essential for long-term athletic development.
Our strength & conditioning, sports performance, & injury prevention program is built on the expertise of our Doctor of Physical Therapy who harnesses the individualized and progressive strength & conditioning principles of the Long Term Athletic Development Model (LDAT).
Programming is built around your unique characteristics and context. These include age, sport, gender, client-specific goals, injury history, and injury screening. This individualized structure allows for specific and purposeful planning.
Each program begins with addressing injury risk factors and then progresses to loading and performance in the weight room.
1 - Injury Prevention
Proactive injury prevention is built on creating a foundation of mobility, strength, and conditioning. Our program always begins with addressing these factors and teaching proper form and mechanics. This reinforcement of quality movement not only prevents injury in the weight room but in any active setting - court, field, rink, etc.
2- Loading & Performance
Each program is multi-tiered - pre-established requirements must be met before moving onto the next level. As you become more advanced, the programming becomes more advanced. This methodical approach creates constant progress via appropriate loading - preventing both stagnation and over-training.
Who is This for?
As the name states, this is a long term development model - it is designed for individuals seeking long-term development and injury prevention. In order to effectively implement the individualized and progressive principles, we require a commitment of at least 3 months and one session per week.
We offer 1 on 1 sessions, small (3 people max) training sessions, and team or group training sessions specifically catered to runners, youth athletes, and post-ACL rehabbers.
1 on 1 and small group sessions take place at Velocity Sports Performance Brentwood for $160 and $75 per session respectively, while team training sessions take place at Circuit 45 West LA for $37.5 per session. The minimum commitment is 3 months and 1 session per week (ideally 2 or 3 depending on the phase of training you're in).
