ATC Role in Strength & Conditioning

JaNae StartI have dual credentials as an Athletic Trainer and Strength Coach (ATC/CSCS). Having more than 7 years experience as an AT has helped develop my solid foundation of both assessing and correction of functional movements as a CSCS. Combining the knowledge I have in both of these fields has made me a stronger clinician and programmer. The building blocks of all great athletes include the perfect balance of mobility and functional stability. The main goal as both an AT & a strength coach is to reduce injury rates and increase athletic performance. In my current role, I am able to do both; watching my athletes both overcome injuries and succeed through hard work.

Carolyn MurraryThis blog is sort of a sequel to one of my previous blog posts I wrote on Parkinson’s Disease (PD) a few years back. The one where I talked about how I was watching a Sunday morning news program that was promoting boxing for management of Parkinson’s and how it was motivating me to start working with this population again. Well, nearly 2 years later, I finally became certified in LSVT- BIG for Parkinson’s treatment.
