MOVEMENT MATTERS

It is said up to 85% of chronic disease and pain is preventable through and increase in movement and proper nourishment. The US Government Physical Activity Guidelines states we need anywhere from 4 hrs up to 8 hours of movement weekly based on the individual, their needs, and goals. The confusion lies with what do we do to complete that amount of activity.

We believe all activity is good if it is dosed at the right amounts, at the right time, for the goal. DHF Programming breaks movement into 4 categories:

MOBILITY

Mobility is at the core of our program design. Mobility looks at our ability to move in our surrounding space within different situations (activity/sport specific), and is dependent on our bodies muscles, bones, and nerves to properly synchronize the way we move. Mobility moves are aimed at regulating the Autonomic Nervous System, providing circulation to the muscles, and activating the muscles to move on demand.

STRENGTH

Once the body has achieved the necessary mobility requirements for the goal, the body must demonstrate an ability to stabilize from within. Muscles, bones, and nerves must be integrated to allow the body to control the new found mobility it achieved. Emphasis is placed on functional strength for daily life activities and sport.

METABOLIC

Metabolic conditioning is at the core of everything we do in life, whether at work, play, or sport. If we do not have proper metabolic conditioning for the specific demands of the activity the bodies systems begin to breakdown. Compensatory patterns develop, inefficient movement occurs, and possible injury awaits.

POWER

Power training can relate to sport or general fitness needs. Accleration, deceleration, quickness, speed, agility, and more represent your power profile.

The golf program that I went through was some of the best golf training I have experienced. The training that Bryan Morgan and Nick Leader put me through completely elevated my golf game. This program created by Jay Morgan helped me continue to play competitive golf. From this program I picked up 30 yards on all of my clubs. I used to drive consistently around 250, but now I am consistently driving the ball 280-290yds! Definitely worth going through and will improve your golf performance!

I first met Nick when I started the DHF ACL prevention program. As I advanced with the ACL prevention program I decided I wanted to continue at DHF because I would become a better athlete and stronger for my upcoming lacrosse career at The University of Vermont. Nick has prepared me to hit the ground running at UVM in endless ways. Nick has helped me gain confidence, quickness, flexibility, and strength - both mentally and physically. I truly believe that going to DHF and having Nick as my trainer helped me achieve all of my goals!
