Used with athletes of all ages, from weekend warriors to professional athletes in every sport:
What is the Champion Performance Specialist program?
A simple, yet comprehensive system for rehab and fitness professionals to learn how to assess, optimize, and enhance movement-based performance. Watch me explain more below…
What if there was a proven system, that once learned, could take all the guesswork out of how you assess people move and help you develop your therapy and training programs?
THE CHAMPION PERFORMANCE SPECIALIST PROGRAM HAS A SINGLE PURPOSE
To enable rehabilitation and fitness professionals to master helping people optimize and enhance their performance, allowing you to become a sought after expert, work with more people you enjoy helping, and feel confident you can help them achieve their goals.
When does the next enrollment begin?
The next public opening date will be in September, 2019. Enrollment is open for one week. After that we close down for several months. Right now, we are only opening the program to new enrollments twice per year. If you’re traveling or have other life commitments during the enrollment period, it’s not a problem. Enroll when we open doors and you will have access to the program for life, and can begin whenever you’re ready, on your own schedule. All students have full, lifetime access.
How much does the program cost?
Tuition for the general public is $999, or 4 monthly payments of $299.
But if you join the presale list, you’ll be able to sign up early, save $200, and get the opportunity to enroll for only $799, or 4 monthly payments of $249
I have a busy life, how much content is in the program and long does it take to go through it all?
The program is entirely self-paced, so there’s no deadline. You can take as much time or as little time as you like. Many people will devour the material and be done in a week, while others will go slower.
If you’d like some guidelines, however, the pace that seems to work best for most of our students is completing one module per week. If you follow that structure, you can expect to spend 3-4 hours per week on the materials over a 6 week period.
In total the program contains a recommended 23 hours of content:
- 15 hours of video content
- 4 one-hour of live review and Q&A sessions with me
- 5 one-hours guided independent practice sessions to go over the material
How long can I access the information?
Once enrolled, you will ongoing unlimited access to the current version of the program. You can refer back to the materials at any time.
Is the program completely online?
It is! You can access the program at anytime 24/7 from anywhere in the world, all you need is a phone, tablet, or computer with an internet connection.

I’m a student, is this program for me?
Absolutely. Going through the program is a great way to get started with your career. Think of it as a cheatsheet of everything I’ve learned over the last 20 years to get you ramped up fast. It’s going to take some practice and reps with clients, but you’ll be more comfortable faster in your career since you can follow a proven system.
I’m experienced, is this program for me?
Absolutely! I know a ton of people with a variety of years of experience that love the program. Many people have great experience, but trouble putting it all together. This program will help you organize everything you do, and combine it with everything I do, to refine your own personal system.
That’s the real glory of this program. It’s customizable to take into account things you already do, and scalable as we learn new things!
If you’re looking for a proven system that you can follow, and combine with everything you already do, this is perfect for you.
I work with older individuals that aren’t athletes, will this program help?
Do your clients move? One of the first things we cover in this program is that “performance” can mean anything, not just athletics. If your client wants to get the most out of their body, then this program will help.
I think there will be a ton that you can apply. The general concepts are universal, so learning how I tackle movement issues will definitely help. Sure, there’s a spectrum. I’m not sure if your people will need to sumo deadlift, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need to hinge. I’ll show you the entire progression/regression spectrum and you can decide how far your clients can go. I may have 4-phases of drills, but that doesn’t mean each person goes through each of the phases, many will benefit from just working on Phase 1 or 2. You may have a lower threshold of what you define proper movement, but the goal is simply to maximize what each person can do.
How is the Champion Performance Specialist different?
I’ll be honest with you, I’ve gone to soooo many continuing education and certification programs over the years. The C-PS is how I’ve put them all together over the last 20 years, combining what I’ve seen work, what hasn’t worked, and my own personal experience. I’ve been disappointed with other programs in the past that pump me up and get me excited, but then I can’t figure out where to get started or how to apply what I’ve learned.
This program is designed to do the opposite.
I’m going to show you everything I look at when assessing movement, and then based on what I find, how I build my therapy and training programs. When you’re done, you’re going to know EXACTLY what to do.
I’ve taken a bunch of your other courses, is there anything new in this for me?
The entire program is new! Many of my other online courses compliment this one really well, but everything here is brand new. You won’t be disappointed. Oh, and thanks for taking some of my other programs too! :)
