Remember when you ran carefree as a child and never worried about pain or injury? You just played for the joy of it. Early in life our muscles have relative balance and minimal restrictions, because we are still in relative alignment and instinctively managing the effects of gravity on our bodies. Sure, we can work out and get stronger, faster, and even jump higher, but after years of bad habits and poor training, we acquire muscle imbalances that can lead to injury and pain.
Trainers today have good intentions, but fail to look at the body from a balance standpoint. They make you work hard to get stronger, but working harder often doesn’t mean working smarter. And being strong doesn’t mean you’re gaining strength where you need it. Proper training requires balance, which may mean focusing less on strength and more on flexibility. Or focusing more on one group of muscles to build the necessary strength to build proper posture or encourage alignment. The trick is to know which muscles to build to achieve proper balance. DAG has assessments for that.
DAG techniques allow you to work out smarter by isolating muscles down to the fiber, so you work out everything you need and nothing you don’t. It is the safest, fastest way to re-balance your body so it properly responds to the triggers that cause pain. We help you identify your muscle imbalances and work to reverse the pain and injuries you’ve acquired over the years. We can help you rapidly achieve a permanent fix so you can play and compete with the same freedom of motion as when you were young.
Not only do our clients perform better after DAG training, they look and feel better as they perform — creating movement that appears effortless to the spectator. The pictures are compelling, but our clients tell us there is nothing like the feeling they get the first time they apply pressure to a previously injured joint and feel no pain.
Where do you start? It’s as simple as stepping into the DAG Cycle at any point in the Pain Cycle so we can stop the next trigger event from happening. Through movement assessment, proprietary pain alleviation and training techniques, and a common sense philosophy, DAG can quickly stop the Pain Cycle. What does that look like? Well, it starts with a blueprint and clear action plan from Day 1.
