You don’t have to be injured to train at Universal Sports Performance. In fact, this is the best time to come and see us. All of the expertise used to care for our injured patients is even better utilized before an injury occurs. Injury prevention and sports performance training, as well as personal health and fitness training, are a huge part of what we do here. “Give me an injured athlete and I can progress him/her back to an even higher level of performance than pre-injury. Give me a non-injured athlete and the sky is the limit.” The initial athlete consultation is designed to fully evaluate the neuro-musculoskeletal system and then design a sports performance-training program to allow the athlete to excel to the best of his/her abilities.
Full Sports Performance Training Program
This program is similar to the full rehabilitation and physiotherapy program, except without the injury. After the initial athlete consultation, a full sports performance-training program will be put in to effect to improve all aspects of the athlete’s skill set. This includes biomechanical training for injury prevention and safety in training, basic strength and conditioning to provide a solid foundation of fitness, and progression to higher levels sports specific training, including strength, speed, agility, explosive power, and sports skills training. Everything you as an athlete needs!
Young Athlete Injury Prevention and Performance Enhancement Program
A perfect program for younger athletes that focuses on the mechanics of sport, and how to grow, develop, and train the correct way for years to come. While any athlete, whether competitive or recreational, can benefit from learning proper training and fitness technique, it is especially important to teach our younger athletes to stay safe as they grow and develop. “I wish someone could have taught me how to train properly when I was a young athlete!” Once the proper mechanics of exercise technique are mastered, the program seamlessly advances into a sports specific training program to enhance athletic performance. Your young athlete will learn what he or she needs to know and then put it to use.

Sports Physical Exams
Pre-participation sports physical exams (PPE’s) are an important part of any athletic season. Every athlete, at any level of sport, requires a physical exam before competing in that sport. These exams serve as a screening process to rule out any risk factors that may cause harm or put the athlete at risk for injury, or in some cases even death. While not all conditions can be diagnosed and/or prevented from occurring, the PPE can help keep our athletes as safe as possible during their sporting efforts. Universal Sports Performance offers pre-participation sports physicals at our clinic location in Toluca Lake, CA by appointment. We also offer organized onsite PPE’s for certain sports and athletic organizations at high schools, clubs, or other facilities. These onsite PPE’s are a fantastic way for teams to have physicals performed on all athletes participating in a particular sport before the season begins, and can be arranged in advance by contacting Universal Sports Performance.

Customized Personal Training Program
Let’s face it, not all of us want to be elite level athletes. In fact, most of us just want to live a happy, healthy, and pain-free life. Many of us have tried various fitness programs with minimal results. Many of us have also been hurt or have pain with some of these exercise attempts. If you are tired of not getting the results you deserve, the customized personal training program at Universal Sports Performance is what you are looking for. After an initial consultation, a full fitness-training program will be designed for you. This includes biomechanical training for injury prevention, safety in training, and an exercise-training program to provide a solid foundation of fitness, health, weight loss, body composition improvement, and the fitness strategy you desire. Tell us your goals and we will get you there.
Customized Anti-aging Program
Some of us are interested in “turning back the clock.” As we age, our bodies change and become less toned. Through the correct exercise training program, one can slow the progression of these processes and in many ways reverse them, making the body look and feel younger. Many of the degenerative processes that ail us as we age can be caused by poor movement mechanics and improper fitness strategies. By learning the correct way to condition your body as you age, you will be able to get the results you want without beating yourself up. After an initial consultation, a full anti-aging fitness-training program will be designed for you so you can stay healthy and fit for years to come.
