“When you have professional athletes, individuals who are paid millions of dollars to compete and perform at the highest level in the sport they love, but are constantly being sidelined by injuries, most of which are non-traumatic and in many cases, non-contact, what’s the problem?” This is the first question I asked that opened up the can of worms that would become, and continue to drive the innovations, questions, and research of NOTUS Training.
I believe that a lack of a global understanding of the body has lead to more misdiagnoses, injuries, and preventable surgeries than any other singular issue in the health and wellness industry as a whole. My area of research and focus is on respiration mechanics, heart rate variability, posture, injury, and how those seemingly unrelated topics interact and influence one another. NOTUS was created as a platform for me to continue to develop a training method that accounts for these different issues and allows athletes to train in a much more “holistic” way that, not only will help them perform at a higher level, but will also allow them to keep playing/competing/living even after they end their more formal athletic careers. This system is for anyone, from the youth athlete getting their bearings, to the collegiate or professional athlete competing at the highest levels, to the weekend warrior, whose glory days are behind them but still have many miles of use left on the body.
I want this blog to be a resource for my athletes as well as anyone who might simply be passing through. There will be topics in here that will have to do with training, my training methodology or research, or stuff I just find entertaining or interesting. Check out the articles and posts, read the commentary, feel free to start a discussion, learn something new!
