The idea of “bridging the gap” between therapy and performance is increasingly more popular. Therapists are treating more people in the fitness population and starting to realize the importance of strengthening and conditioning as it applies to our patients. Coaches are beginning to realize the importance of being able to help athletes return to sport after an injury. The literature is illuminating the importance of proper programming, strengthening and progressive exercise to return our athletes back to training and to keep them safe and performing at a high level.
For the coach, once your athlete is “cleared” by the doctor to return to activities how do we ramp them back up? Once they’re back to training, how do we keep them safe?
For the therapist, how do we get past “phase 1” rehabilitation. What’s phase 2, 3 and 4? What are the exact mechanisms of injury for the pain problems we encounter and how can we avoid these in the future so these athletes don’t keep coming back? How can we get these patients the last 10% better so they can finally be happy and training again?
Athletes are constantly frustrated by their lack of ability to get back to what it is they love. There is an absense of knowledgeable coaches and therapists to help these athletes. Often times athletes stay in pain much longer then they should or worse yet they give up on what they love because of a lack of sound therapy and coaching principles.
Trouble is, there aren’t many resources out there for therapists and coaches to learn how to actually do this. Podcasts give us a small taste of how therapists practice. Medical literature also gives us some ideas. Blogs help people share their thoughts to a small degree.
What’s missing is the actual practical implementation! How should we treat? What exercises are best? How do we create systems for our athletes to return and stay safe? Where can I find a program to do this?!
I’ve been blogging for nearly 9 years. I love it and I’m not stopping. I’ll still be furiously blogging and sharing my ideas on a weekly basis on fitnesspainfree.com. This will probably go on until a meteorite hits the earth. I’m still going to be delivering the same type of content I have been for going on a decade now.
That being said I wanted something a bit more then just blogging. I was getting a lot of requests from people about some sort of mentoring program. People wanted something that was affordable and also went in depth into specific topics about rehabilitation and performance. I really had no solution to this.
I also wanted to share more. I wanted to go into more depth. I wanted to provide more explanation. I wanted to post longer videos with more details. I wanted to share not only my thoughts but my systems I’ve created for rehabilitation and performance. I wanted to share my ideas of how to bridge the gap between rehabilitation and high level performance so that grey area can be filled and more athletes will have successful rehabilitation.
I wanted to create a better resource for coaches and therapists to help bridge the gap between rehabilitation and performance.
Fitness Pain Free Insiders is my solution to this. I can now give you the attention and detail you deserve as a reader. I can now take my education to the next level for you. I can give you an Insiders perspective into the way I treat and coach.
I’ll be doing this via webinar format presentations right here on the site after you sign up. The webinars will last somewhere between 15 and 30 minutes and a new webinar will be released every month. I’ll be using text, audio and video to maximize learning and user experience.
What type of topics will be covered?
I plan on going in depth with topics like:
- Overhead Mobility
- Reviewing each joint and muscle that affects mobility
- How to assess each area
- How to manually treat each area
- How to apply corrective exercises to every area
- Incorporating this into a group training environment
- Femoral Acetabular impingement
- The specific mechanism on injury from squatting
- How to modify the squat to reduce impingement
- Manual techniques to reduce sensitivity and improve strength
- Corrective exercises
- Progressive strengthening, programming and periodization considerations
- Rehabilitating Shoulder Impingement
- Specific mechanisms of injury for shoulder impingement seen in the fitness population
- Physical therapy manual techniques and exercises from phase 1 to advanced rehabilitation
- How to return to olympic lifting and powerlifting
- How to return to kipping, muscle-ups and handstand pushups
- Shoulder health exercises for future injury prevention
- Programming considerations for those prone to shulder pain
What’s the price?
My goal is to provide you with maximum education value at a very reasonable cost. I’m literally charging a small fraction of what other typical continuing education programs usually go for.
I’m offering the program for $7.99 per month when you sign up monthly and $79.99 per year when you sign up yearly.
I guess you really just have to make the decision of whether or not you want this program or you want a burrito from Chipotle. If it was me I’d probably end up going with both (I burritos).
How do I get started?
Getting started is super simple. All you have to do is decide if you want to sign up for a monthly subscription or yearly. (You’ll get 2 months FREE when you choose the yearly option)
Once you decide whether you want to subscribe monthly or yearly (You save the cost of 2 months when you subscribe yearly) then you just have to make the purchase. After you purchase you’ll create a log-in and then have access to all the webinars I’ve created in the past and access to each webinar as they continue to come out in the future. You can cancel at any time.
Looking forward to seeing you on the Inside!
