Athletic & Training Background
I was a minor league strength and conditioning coach with the Houston Astros organization for 2 years. I am also a former collegiate baseball player before transitioning into the Strength and Conditioning realm. My current training regiment focuses primarily on power and Olympic lifting with a transition 3-4 times per year to Hybrid training to prep for long distance obstacle races.
Current Role Working with Athletes
I currently work with athletes of all levels, both clinically for sport rehab and to enhance sport performance. I continue to assist athletes in developing off-season training programs, specializing in baseball strength and conditioning.
While I believe it is important to address an athlete's primary injury or pain, it is imperative to resolve the driving force. Very often, an injured joint or muscle is the victim of a muscle imbalance or mobility issue occurring in another region of the body. The driving force which caused the injury can be considered the criminal. "Treat the victim, but always catch the criminal." It is important to resolve the driving force, or the athlete is at significant risk of re-injury. Many times, athletes at all levels do not even realize what the these weaknesses are until they result in injury. I transition all my athletes to sport performance training after physical therapy in an effort to turn their weakness into strength.
