As the father of a two sport D III female athlete, a trainer of more than 600 teen female athletes since 1995, and as a former athlete I am uniquely qualified to speak to the challenges all female athletes need to address during their teenage years.
I studied biomechanics, kinesiology, human anatomy, and spent more than 250 hours working in sports medicine physical therapy clinics as part of 1,500 hours that were required for my [ISSA] certifications after I created, co-developed, and co-authored Your Lower Back (1993); the first book by a patient (me) and his doctor to help everyone understand how a spine-safe exercise program will help the majority of people dealing with low back pain.
Immediately after the book was published I became interested in the non-contact ACL injury challenge for all female athletes when my daughter started playing travel softball and basketball. I created and co-developed the training progressions that I have used since 1995 to help more than 600 adolescent female athletes with sport-specific training to play sports that has produced remarkable results as not one teen has ever reported an ACL injury (which was not expected). I have also developed exercise programs and personally trained men, women, and children with a variety of medical challenges with my spine-safe training philosophy.
In 2003, my colleagues and I co-authored two online CEU courses at www.issaonline.com that helps numerous trainers; Safely Training the Adolescent Female Athlete. In 2010, I launched www.learn2trainsafely.com to provide quality information so every user can value training to play sports for teen female athletes playing every sport.
In January 2012, my new book: They’re Not Boys – Safely Training the Adolescent Female Athlete™ has been published.
Training Philosophy: To help every individual achieve, or surpass their personal goals with a safe and age-appropriate, functional/integrated, and spine-safe conditioning program.
