  • Introduction to Movement, Training & Neuromuscular Rehab

    Introduction to Movement, Training and ARP Please take a minute to really contemplate what I am about to say…it’s important. It is so simplistic, so basic, yet because we have gotten so far away from it, this might even come across as “new agey”. Nevertheless, what I am going to discuss here is the foundation (read: the beginning) for everything you are looking for here at Dunamis. Four simple words: Breathing Sitting Standing Walking Yep, that's it. These four words seem so simple. You say, “I do these things all day long, all the time. I don’t even have to think about it.” Yep, that’s the point. We don’t really think about ....

  • Why We Do Not Ice

    Rice Therapy: Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation under criticism For many athletes a doctor’s recommendation of the RICE protocol for healing their sports related soft tissue issue injury was seen as the gold standard of care. However, this treatment is now under criticism from a surprising source, the doctor who created the RICE treatment guidelines, Gabe Mirkin, MD. In a recent article on his own website, Dr. Mirkin admits that both ice and rest (key components of RICE) may delay healing. This insight comes 36 years after Dr. Mirkin authored the The Sportsmedicine Book (1978), where he coined the acronym RICE for the 4 elements which became the standard of care in treating ....

  • How it All Began

    How it All Began

    I have been an athlete and into training for as long as I can remember. I had my first major injury my sophomore year in high school when I completely dislocated my shoulder during baseball. You see, I started as the typical freshman who was as tall as I am now (6’1″) but weighed only 140 lbs. I was the fastest kid in school but didn’t have much strength and received the nickname “gumby”. I was a varsity letterman in both baseball and wrestling as a freshman and was ready to start varsity football as a sophomore. Therefore, all the coaches had me doing the typical bigger, faster, stronger programs of how much can you bench, squat, and power clean. Of course, ....

  • A Quick Quote from Donald Miller…

    A Quick Quote from Donald Miller…

    We must become storytellers. A good storyteller speaks something into nothing. Where there is absence of story, or perhaps a bad story, a good storyteller walks in and changes reality. He doesn’t critique the existing story, or lament about his boredom, like a critic. He just tells something different and invites other people into the new story he is telling. So let’s begin to tell a better story. ....

  • The Best Way to Learn

    The Best Way to Learn

    In the XV Olympics, during the height of Russian athletic dominance, Soviets took 29 medals (11 gold), East Germans took 25 medals (9 gold), while the U.S. only took 6 medals (2 gold)—9th place. How are we to explain the consistent edge shown by other countries in business and athletics? Some might say Americans have lost their clear vision and follow-through, that they now lack the ability to see and stay with a course all the way to its successful outcome. It is disquieting to discover how often those who are “in the search for excellence” stop part way through a program or book once they feel they have grasped the basics or principles but fail to follow through with ....

    The Gym Needs You & You Need the Gym

    One instrument by itself can sound pretty cool. But it will never compare to the fullness, richness, and depth of an entire orchestra. However, if just one musician in the orchestra refuses to practice and play his part and is now missing notes, the whole orchestra suffers and misses revealing the true potential of its glory. The orchestra needs each musician and each musician needs the collective orchestra. Life is no different. Do your part then come join us. We need you too. We need you to be a part of a collective growth in opportunity to reveal the best you. And you will need this environment to push you to be your best. Were changing a culture.

  • Attitude is Contagious

    Attitude is Contagious

    It is extremely important to remember that our attitude is not dependent upon our circumstances. There will always be struggle, disappointment, frustration. However, when we allow our circumstances to get the best of us, it becomes a difficult pattern to remove ourselves from. Anger and frustration if we allow it can make us irritable, then pouty, then whiny, then a whole host of other potential negative displays that quite frankly no one wants to be around. Even placing your physical body in a posture of negativity effects your emotional state. We all appreciate being around others who are positive, encouraging, and cheerful. We gravitate towards others who are determined, focused and ....
