As a professional, Joe has tremendous drive and enthusiasm for Athletic Medicine and Strength and Conditioning. Joe understands athletes and what make them tick. He has the ability to reach out to the top professional athlete or the non-athletic recreational warrior. Joe is successful because he applies this drive and professionalism to his business practices. He does things the “right way” and does not take short cuts. I cannot imagine a better person to assist Physicians and Athletic Trainers with transition of the athlete from the clinic to the weight room to the practice field/court/arena with his excellent skill set. During my years as Director of Sports Medicine, this was something athletes sought when they were out of the collegiate setting; and Joe provides just that.
I first met Joe in 2006 during our time working within the Los Angeles Kings organization. At just 26 years old, Joe was already one of the most progressive clinicians in our industry and the NHL. Throughout my career with the LA Kings, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Detroit Red Wings, I have continued to rely heavily on our professional conversations regarding strength training parameters, athlete-specific injury progressions, and up-and-coming research. Joe’s perspective on sports performance and rehabilitation is thought provoking and elite. I certainly consider him one of the best in our industry.
