At Athletic Strategies, we put the athlete at the center of our system.

More truly, we put an athlete and his or her nervous system at the center of our system.

Modern strength and mobility training, speed and agility, structural integrity, sports skill and style, suppleness and flexibility, sports vision training, vestibular rehabilitation, pain neuroscience, stamina, spirit, nutrition and more…

Working on all of these are a part of Athletic Strategies’ training program. Each of these qualities is immensely important to athleticism and not addressing any one of them may be what prevents an athlete from reaching his or her true potential.

It is how we integrate these different factors that makes Athletic Strategies unique.

Firstly, we understand that each nervous system has a unique fingerprint. When it does its job correctly, you can do what you want to do at your highest level.

An athlete’s nervous system that tells us what and how things need to be done, how the training and conditioning program must be structured, and the way to achieve the fastest improvement of performance.

The more one understands modern neuroscience, the more it becomes clear that everything begins with the brain. The nervous system—the brain—governs everything that happens in the body.

Prior to this understanding, we tried using traditional methods of improving performance, such as specific exercises or drills, therapy, stretching, core training, strength training or sports psychology. Of course, all of these are important and have their place, but, fundamentally, everything that occurs in the body stems from the nervous system. This means that, whatever methodology is being used, it must be done in accordance with an athlete’s unique and individual nervous system.

Athletic Strategies focuses on:

Efficient movement patterns

Movement is one of the fastest ways to communicate with the nervous system. A movement tells your body where it is in space, how fast it is moving, and which movements are safe. By re-training and “waking up” these nerve endings, you can help your body become pain-free, get back to balance, perform at a higher level, and attain your highest potential.

Sensory integration training

The nervous system needs accurate information from the visual, vestibular (balance and spatial orientation), and proprioceptive (your brain’s 3D map of your body in space) systems, and their integration. We optimize all three of these systems to help you achieve your highest level of performance.

Addressing the whole person and integrating all of an athlete’s requirements with continuous assessments is an important part of Athletic Strategies. We do that during every training session to assure that the athlete receives exactly what he or she needs in that session.

To make changes in pain, range of motion, strength, coordination, speed, agility, or any other function, the fastest way is to adjust and integrate your nervous system.

Only when all necessary changes for an athlete are done, and joints, muscles, and other tissues are able to move pain-free throughout full ranges of motion, will the nervous system release its brakes and unleash your full potential in your performance.

Among the many different methods we use to target the nervous system:

* Visual Skill Training * Unique Balance Challenges * Precise Mobility Work * Non-Traditional Strength Exercises. * Sensory Integration Drills

What all these approaches have in common is a focus on novelty. Modern neuroscience tells us that the brain learns best when there is something new to learn. By varying the stimulus, we attract the nervous system’s attention. This allows us to use every training session as a “neural re-education experience”—leading not only to better movement but to more interesting and powerful sessions.

At the center of our system is always you—the athlete—and, in our view, EVERYBODY is an athlete!

Each athlete is different, so while the exact same training program can help one athlete, it can break another. If a coach does not know this or knows what to do about it, the results can range from mediocre to disastrous.

If, on the other hand, coaches and athletes fully understand our system, becoming the athlete you have always known you could be is not only possible, it is inevitable!
