CONDITION – OPTIMIZE – REGULATE – PERSEVERE – SUSTAIN (CORPS)
Even if you have mastered one or more of these attributes we will assist you in correcting, defining, or structuring the ones, which need refinement or improvement. We work proactively in order to decrease the possibility of injury and illness through innovative approaches used to build the foundation for optimum growth.
Get Well! Be Fit! Stay a Warrior for Life!
Attributes of CORPS
Prevention: “The Medical Expenditure Survey found that 85% of the U.S. Population has some type of chronic illness. We will provide you with the tools and guidance in fitness and diet in order to combat the onset of inflammation and treat existing symptoms.
Lifestyle: “What do you want … and how are going to get there?”
How and where are you spending your time? Who and what surround you? Are you providing yourself and environment for positive growth and development? How are these things affecting our overall well being and performance?

Diet: “Feed the Machine or change the oil”
Primary – The root of chronic inflammation/illness is in the digestive track. Our bodies are not created equal. The cause of inflammation is not the same in everyone. We’ll turn over every stone to uncover your hidden causes.
Secondary – Based on our initial analysis, we will develop an individualized nutrition and diet plan focusing on your performance goals.
Sleep: “Sleep deprivation impacts us physically, which can negatively affect our coordination, agility, mood and energy,” says Dr. Bert Jacobson, professor and head of the School of Educational Studies at Oklahoma State University (OSU) and the lead author of the new study Grouped Comparisons of Sleep Quality for New and Personal Bedding Systems.
“Research shows that sleeping better and longer leads to improvements in athletic performance, including faster sprint time, better endurance, lower heart rate, and even improved mood and higher levels of energy during a workout.” ELT C.OR.P.s Training

Here are just a few interesting statistics on what Sleep researchers are discovering on Sleep deprivation and its impact on our basic metabolism.
- Lowered testosterone levels by up to 15% in healthy young men. Testosterone is critical to building muscle mass, strength and bone density.
- Increased levels of cortisol (a stress hormone), decreased activity of human growth hormone (which is active during tissue repair), and decreased glycogen synthesis. Over time, this could prevent an athlete from responding to heavy training and lead to overtraining and injury
- Slows glucose metabolism by as much as 30 to 40 percent: This affects tissue repair and recovery.
Mood and Emotion Management: “Live with the attitude of positive expectation!”
There are a lot of different components that affect our mood. Hormones and inflammation play a big roll! Our continued thought cycles build neuropath ways that attribute to who we are, how we think, and perform. These same thoughts and feelings release chemicals that can cause a series of chain reactions in our mind and body.
Head injury and neuromuscular development: Mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) typically occurs when the head is suddenly accelerated and/or decelerated during an accident of some type. One does not need to experience unconsciousness or a blow to the head. A severe whiplash situation can cause the same kinds of twisting and shearing forces on the brain’s axons (the nerve fibers connecting one part of brain to another) as does a blow to the head. It is thought that these forces damage the connections between nerve cells and possibly the conducting fibers themselves, resulting in an impairment of function.
- Reflexes and agility through timed response
- Sleep hygiene
- Stress management
Individualized muscular skeletal growth and development: The more you move the more muscle imbalances you develop, imminently leading to injury if ignored. If left untreated, muscle imbalances attribute to degenerative disease in bone and cartilage, along with arthritis. As you can see, this inhibits performance. These ailments and injuries are preventable; we will continuously evaluate and treat imbalances to keep your foundation strong, putting you on the path for optimum growth!
