LISTEN: Blurring the Lines Between Rehab and Training

TAGS: podcast, Mike Robertson, IFAST, elitefts.com, Elitefts Info Pages

There are few coaches and business owners that have had the vast experience within various sub-disciplines like Mike Robertson. After receiving his Masters Degree in Sports Biomechanics from Ball State, Robertson left with DI coaching experience and the tutelage of Dr. William Kraemer and Dr. Robert Newton. Robertson also gained valuable experience in a physical therapy and rehabilitation environment. He is still using that foundation to fix everyone from "broken" powerlifters, to world class athletes, to poor-postured soccer moms who drive their min-vans way too long.

Robertson has been adamant about the unnecessary distinction between rehab and performance. Their undeniable overlapping when it comes to achieving results for athletes and clients shouldn't be ignored. Roberston has brought his experiences and education to develop a comprehensive system that addresses the needs of clients by treating every one who walks into the iFAST doors, where Robertson and co-owner Bill Hartman do business.

Seeing Robertson present at the 2014 NSCA Coaches Clinic definitely reinforces his knowledge base and his ability to communicate to coaches, trainers, and athletes. Robertson has bridged the gap between training methodologies and specific populations through an integrated training philosophy — one that has purposefully created a system with built-in progressions, regressions, and some of the most innovative ways to increase performance and health.
