Every warrior is an athlete. Just like the professional athlete, the warfighter must pay attention to performance, operational skill sets, injury prevention, performance enhancement through training and nutrition, and rehabilitation when necessary. Our extensive sports medicine experience in the military setting allows us to adapt professional best practices to optimize warfighter performance.
Nutrition, physical training, resiliency - physical and mental, and recovery between missions and deployments is critical to the success and optimization of the warfighter. You are indeed a WARRIOR ATHLETE for whom we bridge the gap between science and best practices to the operational setting.
