FPF Insiders Can Help Take You To The Next Level

Think "Netflix" but for Physical Therapists


A good coach requires a lot of things. They must know how to assess for mobility limitations, how to modify for athletes in pain, and how to prevent injuries in their athletes all while getting their clients towards their goals. This is no small task. I'll supply you with the tools to help set you apart from the competition.

As a therapist, I know there is a real lack of relevant information out there when working with people who enjoy Olympic weightlifting, bodybuilding, powerlifting, and fitness. It's challenging to find evidence-based yet practical rehabilitation tips. This is exactly what I do on a daily basis and what I plan on sharing with you.

What's includeD?

Constantly Updated

I'm continually adding new courses, webinars, guides, cheat sheets and handouts on fitness and rehabilitation. Includes exclusive "members only" content as well as older free content organized to improve your learning experience.


Essential Coaching Series

Once you're on the inside of the program the first set of webinars is an entire educational course outlining the principles behind working with painful athletes.  I call it the "essential coaches series" and it represents all of the most important foundational learning to go through before consuming the rest of the content.  Now eligible for 4.75 CEUs for physical therapists and physical therapy assistants.

Optimizing Mobility for Performance & Prevention

I've also got an entire section on optimizing mobility for your favorite lifts.  There's a master guide to assessing mobility for these lifts along with my favorite mobilizations and some sample programs to see exactly how I like to create these programs.  Never get stumped again when an athlete can't get into the positions they need for performance.

Exercise Technique & Accessory Exercises

As a coach, you're definitely going to need to know what good and bad techniques look like.  This is as important for improving performance as it is for rehabilitating from injury and staying pain-free for the long haul. Just like with the mobility section I've covered all of the most important movements.  I've also included some of my favorite accessory exercises to improve these movements. 

Exercise Modifications for Pain

Both fitness and rehab professionals NEED to know how to modify movements when athletes are in pain.

Joint Specific Rehab & Performance

You’re provided with entire sections devoted to the most injured areas of the body in the gym.  There are specific sections for shoulder, knee, low back, hip and wrist pain.  If you have a specific weakness when dealing with athletes with any of these issues then you can shore up these holes with some of the webinars or ebooks provided in the Insiders program


"'Insiders' was extremely helpful for me because it taught me all of the things I needed to know, that I didn't learn in physical therapy school to work with people in the fitness world."

Trey Martin - Physical Therapist and Powerlifter 

"As a therapist and coach, I felt like I had a great deal of knowledge on both ends of the spectrum but not how to combine the two.  Insiders was great to help me learn how to link these worlds."

Lyanne Colon - Physical Therapist and CrossFit Coach

"Dan is consistently my "go-to guy" for info about injuries in the gym.  Insiders give me the insight and confidence I need to know I'm best at helping athletes in pain and not doing anything I shouldn't be."

Jason Leydon - Head Coach CrossFit Milford

Is this a physical DVD or all online?

This course is 100% online through a platform called Kajabi.  There is no physical DVD.  The course can be accessed via any phone, tablet, or computer.

Can I get CEUs if I am a therapist, athletic trainer, or coach?

Unfortunately, due to the complexity and number of governing organizations, this course is not currently approved for CEU's. We are hoping to get courses approved in the future!

How long do I have access to this course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course (pending you are not sharing free access to friends!) for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.

Are the information and terminology too complex for me?

Definitely not! Dan uses highly scientific information but works hard to explain complex things in a simple language. This is in an effort to help everyone understand, and also to help transfer the ideas to the gym the next day.

How much does the course cost?

Insiders is $1.00 for one week of access and then billed at $9.99 per month. You can also sign up for $99.99 for the year.
