How many times have you run that mile? How many times have you looked at your stopwatch and sighed at the missed minutes or seconds on the clock? Sport performance is an incredibly powerful driving force for athletes, and when minutes and seconds become indicators of success, making the most of every movement, every muscle, and every intentional stride, means the difference between winning and falling short. Fitness, strength, flexibility, mobility, and precision… these are but a few of the things involved in sport performance. In this post, we’re looking at the ways in which physical therapy can exponentially boost your sports performance. That’s right! It’s not all about back disks and joint pain… physical therapy can be the different between a good run, length, ski, or jump, and a great one. Let’s see how!

And as if that wasn’t bad enough, the pandemic means the gym probably isn’t even open… so, the workout is put on the backburner, right? Wrong! Working out at home this winter – particularly during these unprecedented times – can actually be really fun! And no, you don’t need to rush out and buy a treadmill or spinning bike… you can just keep reading this blog for tips, advice, and motivation to get you out of bed, into your sport socks, and back to living a healthy, fit, pain free life! No equipment needed!

Let’s get started.
