About BreakThrough Sports Performance
BreakThrough offers a truly unique experience with Personal Training and Sports Performance.
Thanks to Postural Restoration Institutes science, we wear a different lens when we look at the human body. When looking at someone from the outside we look very balanced and symmetrical.
In reality, we are designed very asymmetrically. From your nervous system to your visual system both sides of your body are not designed the same. Depending on what side of the body you are referencing, one system will have a different role and responsibility on one side of your body versus the other based off that particular systems position and the demand that is placed on that system in that particular position.
What is unique about our human design is that all our systems are actually balanced out by all the systems working together through their own asymmetry. One of the strongest examples of this through extremity alternation; right arm reaches forward as the the left leg steps forward and then as the left arm reaches forward the right leg steps forward. This type of alternation and reciprocal function is supposed to happen at all times throughout your body.
When these normal imbalances are not regulated during normal reciprocal movement a strong pattern of movement asymmetry will emerge creating structural weaknesses, instabilities, and different soft tissue pains.
Every client or team we work with will always be viewed through the lens of asymmetry. We respect these natural imbalances and the common movement patterns that are coupled with a systems disuse and/or weakness. These movement patterns, whether good or bad, will develop because a dominant overuse of one system on side of the body will promote another systems overuse on the other side of the body. When we evaluate and train clients these are the things we look at to best develop the appropriate plan for you!
Our Four Pillars of Performance
Diet will dictate the success or failure of your goals. An inflammatory diet will lead to an inflammatory system. A diet that promotes recovery, health, and longevity will propel you in your fitness!
Use it or lose it! Sitting, standing, walking and much of our lives take place in the front-to-back, up-and-down plane of movement. When this happens the horizontal and rotational planes of movement often times get neglected. This could be caused by our system imbalances that we need to keep in check!
Although we may not think about it often, the body is asymmetrical. Our brain, organs, and other tissues in the body are asymmetrical. This has a potentially negative effect on the body if it's left unchecked.
Your nervous system will always run the show. Everything starts here. Environment, lifestyle, habits, diet, and many more influences will affect how you regulate and maintain your body. If your nervous system isn't running efficiently, neither will you!

After just 4 visits…I feel like a brand new person. Before, I could barely walk for 15 minutes without my back screaming in pain. Now I’m zooming through therapy and going on walks at home.
