All PSP Sports Performance clients will be required to undergo the Advanced Athletic Structural Balance Assessment. This advanced assessment includes techniques from Coach Charles Poliquin and other well-known strength coaches in the field of athletic performance. Experience has taught us that in order for an athlete to excel in sports and to minimize the risk of injury it is critical to identify any compensation patterns an athlete has developed during the repetitive actions of sports performance as well as any structural, mechanical and muscular imbalances that athletes may have.

At Progressive Sports Performance We Build Results With Our Athletic Trainer Programs

We enjoy seeing out customers succeed with their fitness goals. Take a look at what some of the things our satisfied customers have to say about their experience here.

After multiple years of cross country I was very underweight and had very little muscle. Erv taught me how to workout in a healthy way by using a variety of exercises for each muscle group. He showed me how to eat in a way that was conducive to muscle growth and also how to structure my own workouts so that I can continue to workout independently while at college. In a little less then a year-and-a-half I gained 20 pounds in muscle. I would recommend PSP to anyone that wants to improve his or her lifestyle. It is a relationship that I value and one that I plan to continue during my time off from school. Jamie Gerber (Trained 2011-2012)*

My son, Luke (age 11), began training with the coaches at Progressive Sports Performance in October 2009. Luke quickly made significant improvements to his strength, stamina, and footwork, which is very evident on the court. The coaches/trainers at PSP have developed workout routines for Luke that are age-appropriate, but still get results. Most importantly, my son enjoys going to his workouts. Richard Kincaid for Luke Kincaid, Titans Basketball & Spartans Jr. Football (Northbrook, IL) *

I am a fairly athletic person who was having back issues for years. Whatever sport I would be playing, tennis, hockey etc. my low back would tighten up after about an hour and sometimes would just go out altogether. I finally got fed up and decided to get professional help. My PSP Coach, Erv, has been a tremendous help. I've been working out for about 6 months and my back is a ton better. I've had no issues while playing tennis or hockey for 2 hours. My general strength has increased and I've reduced my body fat. Joel Gettleman*
