The information gained from the Human Performance Laboratory is invaluable to physicians, therapists, trainers and coaches who want to help athletes achieve peak performance and an injury free season. The Human Performance Laboratory is also developing an injury-screening test that will help identify those athletes who might be at a greater risk for sports injuries.
The return-to-sport assessment is used with athletes who are recovering from an injury that has left them sidelined. Our experienced sports biomechanists will assess the athlete upon completing physical therapy, which will help determine if he or she is ready to return to full competitive activity.

This is our most popular program for beginning athletes and is offered in a group setting of approximately 20 athletes. This is a six-week training program that meets three times a week for 60 minutes each session. The DNA program includes:
Our DNA Speed Program includes three 90-minute sessions a week for six weeks in a small group setting with up to 20 athletes per group and four or more trainers per group. Each athlete receives two types of training (see below) per day. Also included with the DNA Speed Program is pre- and postscreening of musculoskeletal problems and performance criteria. The DNA Speed Program includes:
VIP Training is a personalized scheduled setting that is limited to no more than three athletes at a time doing high-performance training tailored to the needs of each athlete. VIP training sessions can be purchased in packages of 18 sessions.
This type of training is designed for the postsurgical or acutely injured athlete who needs to transition from physical therapy to full-go sports participation. One-on-one training is administered under the direction of a physical therapist or a sports biomechanist to address the athlete’s individual needs for a safe return to competitive play.
