Dear Sports Physical Therapist:
Working long days and nights with professional athletes for over a decade and at some of the world’s largest sporting events, I learned critical steps to guide athletes from injury seamlessly back to a full return to sport. The good news is that I’ve put in the work, and you get to benefit from it! You might want to expedite this knowledge without the long hours, week after week.
That is why I created my new “Sports PT Strength & Conditioning Summit" mentorship course.
I’ll be sharing the clinical pearls and strategies I learned to create strength and conditioning programs in professional sports, from what NOT to do with athletes in the late phases of rehab to FINALLY bridge the gap between rehab to performance. I’ll be covering it all at this event.
This event will be unlike any course you’ve taken. Think of this as a course for like-minded and motivated physical therapists from around the country. We’ll be reviewing practical, easy-to-implement strategies to create strength and conditioning programs that you can use with athletes of all levels. You’ll be able to tackle any athlete case with confidence, even professional athletes. Combine clinical pearls and conversations with fellow great minds, and you will have an experience that rejuvenates your passion for your practice.
There are millions of people and future patients seeking help after injuries to safely return to sport - and a large majority of them are going to seek out treatment from physical therapists. This is what they are telling me. How many of them apply to you?:
Now, if some or all of these apply to you, you're not alone. Most clinicians find it challenging to create strength and conditioning programs.
It is one thing to create a rehab program for a shoulder, back, or knee - but if you don't have an understanding of how strength and conditioning progressions are drastically different than injury progressions, then it is difficult to have successful long-term outcomes.
Would you agree?
But here's the thing:
This mentorship course (in-person and hybrid virtual option available) is perfect for new grad PTs, established physical therapists, and student PTs/PTAs interested in sports PT.
If you find yourself lost creating strength and conditioning programs or you want to add more tools to your toolbox, this course is essential for you because you are likely going to encounter athletes who want your help to return to sport safely and your outcomes are going to be directly related to your understanding of the proper strength and conditioning progressions.
The "Sports PT Strength & Conditioning Summit" mentorship course takes place in San Diego, CA (and the virtual option will be held via Zoom). Here's who should attend:
Not only will this course cover strength and conditioning program design specifically seen in the elite athlete world, but it also includes the rare opportunity to mix and mingle with other sports physical therapists and elite sports coaches to discuss cases, professional development, and network with other like-minded individuals.
If you’re interested in working with me, having a great conversation, and developing your professional skillset for two days, you need to attend this event!
... You’ll walk away being rejuvenated with passion for your practice!...
No matter what setting you're in or how many years of experience you have, we're all trying to do the same thing...help patients and athletes beyond pain and bridge the gap between rehab and performance.
Here's who's coming to the course:
1. Traditional insurance-based orthopedic/sports setting
You're tired of convincing yourself that your glorified HEP is a "strength program." You might have even prematurely discharged a few great patients and athletes because you didn't know how to bridge the gap from rehab to performance. Now is the time to finally gain the tools so you can be seen as the leading sports specialist in your clinic and community.
2. Clinic director or owner
Now is the perfect time to add wellness programs to your business. I'll be covering how to structure and efficiently run a strength and conditioning wellness program so you can support athletes in your community and safely back to sport...all while increasing revenue.
3. Sports PT in a collegiate or pro sports setting
Your job is critical to the long-term health of your athletes. I've worked in pro sports for over a decade. To maintain good outcomes, communication, and job security, you need to stay at the top of your game with strength programs to keep athletes healthy year-round without injuries.
4. Cash-based PT
Every one of your patients and athletes should have a long-term plan to maintain strength and prevent future injuries so they can get back to CrossFit, running, etc. Maybe you've tried to bridge them into "wellness" or "strengthening" but didn't want to feel salesy so you barely mention anything. I've successfully integrated this into my cash-based PT business with two locations and helping thousands of athletes annually so I know it will help you too.
At the event, I will be giving you the skills to be able to confidently create strength and conditioning programs for your respective setting.
Whether you attend virtually or in person, you'll be able to take the information back to your clinical setting and crush strengthening programs.
You'll be programming for 70-year-old Susie, 16-year-old Mike, and 42-year-old Jose in no time!
If you see yourself in any one of these scenarios and you're sick and tired of making excuses on why you can't help people maximize their potential, surpass their goals, and live the healthy life they've always dreamed about...
...it's time you signed up.

Finally, we will make sure you are able to:
When you know how to perform all of these 5 elements of progressing athletes from end-stage rehab into performance - your outcomes will increase drastically.

So here's my story:
Eight years ago I was working for the United States Olympic Committee, treating the best athletes in the world. As I managed athletes who were injured, I quickly realized they needed to continue training and maintaining a high fitness level...despite their injury. At first, I was applying different approaches and I didn't have structure.
This led me to work closely with strength and conditioning coaches to keep athletes healthy and moving ALL YEAR long.
Once I learned the fundamentals and developed a SYSTEM, I began progressing injured athletes back to their sport with structured timelines...which led to decreased re-injury rates and accelerated recovery.
Soon after, I consulted with professional football and tennis players and I quickly realized they are ALWAYS hurt with minor acute and subacute injuries. My role was to keep them moving. I quickly applied the systems I previously used with Olympic athletes.
I knew I was onto something.
Once I opened Sports Performance Physical Therapy, I applied these same principles and systems to local CrossFit, high school, and recreational athlete communities...
Low and behold, patients were getting significantly better. I was surprised to find out that principles that worked for professional athletes worked for my local community.
It worked! The one thing that really made a difference was using a systematic approach to creating strength and conditioning programs to bridge the gap from rehab to performance.
Before I knew it, my treatment systems were becoming so effective that I was recognized as the "best physical therapist" in Chula Vista over the last 8 years.
I want to share the clinical pearls and strategies I have learned over the last decade working with professional athletes because I believe TOGETHER we can keep more patients exercising despite injury.

If you're still sitting on the fence about attending, here's what a few physical therapists have to say about why they registered for Dr. Chris's course.
"I am driven to pursue a sports clinical residency following graduation from my physical therapy program. In order to succeed in this specific field, I want to learn from the best. Along with pursuing my SCS, I also plan on getting my certification in strength and conditioning so that I can bolster my knowledge in rehabilitation prevention and preparation for an athlete at all levels. Therefore, the sports PT strength and conditioning submit at sports performance physical therapy piqued my interest. I hope to gain knowledge on how to build a program for an athlete based on their sport, current injury/condition, and/or personal goals. Learning how to individualize a strength and conditioning program is an ability I’d like to have in my career."
-Anthony, 2nd Year PT Student
"I want to focus on improving programming and working towards proactivity vs reactivity when athletes return saying they 'feel great' but would benefit from advanced programming to take them to next level."
-Luke, Sports Physical Therapist
"I want to develop a seamless transition in strength and conditioning for my patients. Meaning, it’s not viewed as a two part “pre and post-PT” with strength and conditioning as “optional” or elite next steps. I want to build skills so the vision and timeline (on my end and the patient’s) starts at the eval."
-Jenny, Physical Therapist
"I'm interested in pairing the physiological process of strengthening and conditioning with an appropriate timeline and hope to gain insights that I can use to progress myself as well as my patients in their strength and conditioning goals."
-Chris, Physical Therapist
"I''m interested in taking the course to improve my process in managing an athlete for a longer period of time than the initial 6-12 weeks where traditional PT stops. My goal is to better verbalize my own process so I can explain that more clearly to athletes and also other providers."
