Functional fitness is a strength and conditioning system used by many elite athletes, military, police and fire departments all over the world. It is highly effective at creating what we call “elite fitness”. This is very similar to what a martial artist would call a black belt. It’s both a fitness and skill based system that takes both training and practice to master, which is something that can take years. SICFIT combines functional movements and high intensity in a pattern that has no pattern – it is constantly varied. It was specifically designed to develop general physical preparation and skills, which means it can be used by anyone for anything – from simply improving your way of life to helping your perform in a sport at an elite level. People that participate are usually astounded by the results – they are suddenly able to do things that were never in their realm of possibility like a rope climb, pull up or handstand – so for them, they can quite literally, “Do the Impossible!”
As a physical therapist, I enjoy educating patients, relieving their pain and helping them meet their personal goals. I look not only at the injured area but at the whole body and how it moves. This approach allows me to focus on the cause of the pain or dysfunction and to quickly develop a strategy to improve the symptoms or limitations. Patients know they will spend quality one-on-one time with me. This individualized approach allows me to constantly monitor and change a patient’s program to meet their specific needs. My goal is for every patient to see a positive measurable change in their condition after each visit.Treatments may include but are not limited to functional movement screens, myofascial release, mobilization/manipulation, active release, corrective exercise, strengthening , stretching and modalities (ultrasound, electrical stimulation, iontophoresis). Mark’s education includes a Bachelors and Masters in Exercise Physiology from West Virginia U and a Masters in Physical Therapy form St Augustine University. He is a board certified orthopedic specialist from the APTA as well as a certified manual therapist. Mark also enjoys golfing and is a certified medical professional from the Titlist Performance Institute. His 3D analysis software and biofeedback vest can be used to help improve your golf game.
