Constant Motion Athletics has been created in order to help coaches at all levels maximize the development of their athletes' performance. We've taken the bio-mechanical principles that govern performance on the field and developed methods to use strengthening and muscular adaptations in order to improve these skills. Running, jumping, throwing, kicking, hitting, braking, etc have all traditionally been coached by overloading the body with hundreds and thousands of repetitions of the action. Coaches standing to the side hollering instructions of what needs to be improved or modified. The biggest problem we see with that is; it doesn't help to tell an athlete to change a body movement or action if their body doesn't have the ability to do it.
How many times have you told a runner to get his knees up higher, or swing his arms harder or to swing their leg at the ground to strike the ground differently, only to see the athlete continue to do it the same way? Hundreds? Thousands? How many times has the athlete's response to the instructions been "I AM, COACH!"? Just as many, right? Why do you think that is? In many if not most cases, it's because they're not currently able to do what you've instructed them to do. Limitations in strength, range of motion, muscle activation, old injuries can impede their ability tot move the way you instruct them.
So how do we fix this? Through our in depth assessment, we're able to identify what's truly happening or more importantly, NOT happening and begin the process to see how to fix the issue. In many cases, it's simply a case of incorporating more specific strengthening protocols to allow the athlete to do what you need him/her to do. Other times, it could be from an injury or range of motion limitation and may require medical assistance. It's very important for us to understand the differences and know when to incorporate each technique and/or refer the athlete to a medical professional.
Joe holds a degree in engineering giving him a superior knowledge of force production and application as well as a talent for analyzing and adjusting movement patterns by modifying the way an athlete produces force for a particular movement. This combined with his ongoing education and experience with training athletes and human anatomy and bio-mechanics has helped him to assist many athletes to reach elite levels of performance for their age and ability level.
