“Always Be Pushing.” These 3 words have always resonated with me – both in my career and in competition. I have spent almost half of my life learning about, analyzing, and working with the human body; yet every day, I continue to be impressed. As a doctor of physical therapy, certified strength and conditioning specialist, and triathlete, I have seen what it is like to push one’s body and mind to the limit. It is impressive, but needs to be managed properly.
In my 5 years as a physical therapist, two things have become glaringly obvious. One is the unnecessary disconnect between the rehab and fitness worlds. The second is a lack of a focused entity to meet the extreme and specific demands of the endurance athlete population. Given my passions for both physiotherapy and endurance sports, the creation of Four3 was the solution.
Most endurance athletes have utilized some of our services in the past, most likely at multiple locations. At Four3, I am able to offer a seamless approach that integrates the most innovative techniques in sports science, physical therapy, and strength and conditioning. In one session, I could address a soft tissue restriction with Functional Dry Needling or the Graston Technique, reinforce biomechanics with targeted strengthening exercises, monitor a metabolically specific training session, and implement the appropriate recovery methods. With this approach, the athlete always remains the primary focus and is provided with the consistency necessary to stay healthy and make continuous gains.
At Four3, I intend to apply the “Always Be Pushing” attitude with all of our athletes. Pushing them to work harder. Pushing them to listen to their bodies. Pushing them to achieve goals that once seemed unattainable. With the proper guidance, the human body will do amazing things.
