He has worked in physical therapy treating orthopedic and sports injuries for 10 years. Jack is also an advanced certified personal trainer and has worked extensively as a sports performance coach with a variety of athletes ranging from middle school to the professional level for 10 years. Jack’s passion for improving athletic performance is what started his path of education and research towards a hybrid training style incorporating sports medicine, injury prevention, and sports performance training. The success of his model over the last 5 years led to the beginning of his own sports performance training business, JL Sports Performance. Jack continually works in the community providing educational events to stress the importance of injury prevention, proper strength/conditioning programming, and recovery among adolescents and adult athletes.
Jack uses his background as a musculoskeletal and movement specialist to develop athlete specific phase training programs which allow athletes to enhance their quality of movement and athletic performance. As part of the athlete’s programming, Jack focuses on biomechanics, movement quality, muscle imbalances, strength/conditioning and manual therapy/recovery techniques. Jack believes knowing the “WHY” behind each exercise an athlete performs creates purpose and intent, allowing the athlete to reach an optimal level of performance required to excel at their sport. Jack has used his knowledge and experience to develop and implement sports performance training programs for higher level athletes. Jack’s training philosophy and implementation have become highly recognized among athletes and coaches throughout the United States and overseas.
