Athlete's Edge was conceived to construct better athletes by providing them knowledge about their bodies and, more importantly, how they move!
In our clinic, we continually saw muscle, bone, nerve, and joint problems that could have been prevented with a different, more functional approach to sports medicine. That approach is summed up in three words – Structure, Function, Performance!
The premise of Athlete's Edge is to stabilize the dynamic body using a joint-by-joint approach. Training of our athletes always begins with the ability to control your body mass efficiently before you load it with other weight training.
Our athletes understand that control of alignment (STRUCTURE), efficient movement (FUNCTION), and stabilization of the dynamic body (PERFORMANCE) is more complex than force production.
The difference between Athlete's Edge and other approaches to training is our intent to mobilize and stabilize every joint in the body before we choose to increase the demand or load on that body. We strive to correct dysfunction in the kinetic chain before it leads to a compensatory, faulty motor program.
