Be one of the first in the world to become a Champion Performance Specialist (C-PS)
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.
A complete system for both rehab & fitness professionals, and for both those experienced or just getting started
“Mike has done it! Finally a program that is applicable and follows sequences that can be started immediately! I’ve gone through other similar courses and this one is very well organized and complete. I’ve been able to improve patient outcomes and make major functional improvements. I highly recommend anyone working in the field of movement, rehab or just pain relief to take this course.”
“This is the course I have been looking for! I was excited to learn an organized structural and functional hybrid assessment and treatment algorithm program. My two colleagues have also taken this course. We all went to different PT schools, and this program will help us gain a more universal approach to providing assessments and treatments for our patients.”
“Superb! As a PT with 25 years of experience I was initially skeptical as to whether it would be worth the investment. But as always, Mike delivers. The systems, forms, drills, and exercises have added to my skill-set and my clients love what I’m doing with them. Mike’s exceeded my expectations.”
“I have already been able to drastically improve my efficiency of helping patients correct their faulty movement patterns and be quicker on the road to recovery. This course has improved my assessment efficiency and provided new tools to use in the evaluation of my patients. I would recommend this course to any fitness or rehab professional looking to provide the best care to their clients.”
“This program is one of the most comprehensive packages out there that can be used across both sports performance and sports therapy environment. Mike Reinold does a great job showing how both the two worlds can flow together to benefit the client and maximize results of both.”
“I am a personal trainer. I have already reassessed some of my clients using the information learned and was able to pinpoint some of the compensations cause more precisely which in turn has enabled me to change the workouts prescribed so they can be more effective for my clients and their fitness growth. I am excited to see my own growth both as a (self) client and as a trainer. I highly recommend this for Physical Therapists and Personal Trainers. It makes so much SENSE!!!!!!!”
“As a DPT student with a background in strength and conditioning, I’ve had a hard time deciphering the most optimal way to bridge the gap between them. The Champion Performance Specialist Program has nailed it! This system is perfect for guiding you through a gross movement assessment, narrowing in on dysfunction, treating it, and then optimizing the body with an approach that you can easily adapt with your other skills. As a student, I plan to utilize this system as my framework to build my clinical and performance skills off of. I can’t recommend this program enough!”
“The Champion Performance Specialist Course is the most comprehensive system I have encountered in almost 29 years of practice as a Certified Athletic Trainer. Mike’s program has provided me with more clinically useful information than any classroom course I have ever been in.”
“Thanks Mike for the awesome opportunity to learn from you and everyone at Champion! The Champion Performance Specialist course really tied a lot together for me as a DPT student. Being able to connect the dots from assessing movement to choosing interventions has made me much more confident in my ability to help my future clients. Great tools, techniques, and strategies that I will definitely be applying!”

I’m a PTA, is this program for me?
Absolutely. I’ve had a ton of PTA’s go through the program. The majority of the program is about what to do after an assessment, but knowing as much as you can about assessing movement is helpful.
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. The biggest difference is that this is a complete system, not just concepts. You’ll learn my whole systemized approach to assessing movement, and then restoring, optimizing, and enhancing performance. You won’t be disappointed. Oh, and thanks for taking some of my other programs too! :)
