Our TEAM

HAND-PICKED FOR HIGH PERFORMERS.

Why do A-list actors, athletes, and business titans like Hugh Jackman, Frank McCourt, John Oliver, Milos Raonic, Joe Edelman, John Legere, and Ryan Seacrest seek us out?

Because we are known for taking the world's highest performers and making them even better.

How?

Through our approach.

While science doesn't change from human to human, we focus on creating an individualized, goal-specific, evidence-based approach for each client's unique needs, informed by both a strength and conditioning lens, and a clinical physical therapy perspective. (It makes a lot more sense to consider the clinical side before an injury occurs, rather than just reacting to one -- we are all about prevention, just like any pro sports team.)

We start with a head-to-toe assessment that establishes not just strength, but cardiopulmonary output, metabolic state, and orthopedic considerations. Then, we execute, to a tee -- with every training session, exercise, weight, set and rep carefully planned out. 

We, quite simply, are specialists in human performance.
