Imagine Improved Performance & Reducing the Chance of Injury

In 6 Weeks!


The Ultimate Foam Roller Blueprint

Have You Ever…

  • Worried that your student athlete is going to have a long term injury because their muscles are so tight?
  • Felt that there could be more that your student athlete could do support their recovery?
  • Felt helpless when your student athlete complained of achy and sore muscles… again?
  • Looked for best practices in self care and injury prevention.

In my Rehabilitative Massage practice I have seen far too many student athletes deal with a wide range of injuries that put them out of action for a game, a few weeks and even a whole season.

A major component of these injuries were due to extremely tight muscles. With massage and detailed foam rolling training from me, these student athletes achieved a more functional and flexible muscle group which allowed them to return to training and competing.

Most of these Student Athletes I worked with already had a foam roller had tried foam rolling.  I asked them to show me how they were using those rollers and 9 out of 10 times, these athletes were using this self care tool in a very basic way that was doing little to improve their muscle function.

It is not their fault at all! Where do most people learn how to use a foam roller?  Maybe a YouTube video here and there, perhaps by watching someone else in the gym or maybe the printed instructions that came with the roller.

The way I approach and teach foam rolling is from a unique perspective. I teach foam rolling techniques based from the skills and knowledge of a Sports and NeuroMuscular Massage Therapist, with over 14 years experience working with professional and collegiate athletes. I showed these students how to use the foam roller using my techniques and most of them were blown away by how much more efficiently and deeper they could work their muscles.

If someone tells me that they’ve foam rolled before and it didn’t help, then I know that they just need training in how to use their roller to the fullest extent.

When someone uses the skills found in the Ultimate Foam Roller Blueprint© for High School & Collegiate Athletes, they are going to be able to reduce scar tissue and adhesions while increasing flexibility. This leads to a healthier and stronger muscle, and reduces the chance of injury.

This training will put the Student Athlete ahead in the arena of self care and injury prevention.

What our Clients are Saying...

Last week, when I started working towards my full-body foam rolling, I noticed a BIG difference in how my body felt and functioned while teaching ballet class. Looser, less discomfort, easier to warm up and better use of my technique.
So my goal this week is to try to do some bit of foam rolling (working towards a daily full-body foam Rolling routine) and yoga.

Brian's Foam Rolling Program has been a wonderful addition to my daily routine. 
The instructional videos are not only educational, but well organized into comprehensive sections that correlate to different areas of the body.  This is particularly helpful when you have a specific problem area that you want to focus on. 
The Program is leveled, allowing me to build a strong foundation before moving on to a more challenging section.  I have been able to incorporate it into my pre/post workout regiment in addition to using it for rehabilitation. 
I've seen a reduction in muscle tightness and gained range of motion by foam rolling.  It has been transformative for me!

Your videos are educational, practical, and useful. You knowledge of the body’s muscle system and how the various muscles interact is great. Also, I was impressed with how extensive the FOAM ROLLER can be used with muscles over the entire body. In summary, your video series is easy to use, very helpful, and much appreciated.

I want to share how much the foam roller has helped me in recent months. Several months ago, I was having a severe problem with pain in my right leg and right knee. After going to several doctors, I was unable to find the cause and a solution to my pain problem in my right leg. You identified my pain as a potential muscle issue. I am happy to report after several weeks of using the foam roller [and massages from you] my leg pain is completely cured. Also, I have gained more flexibility thru out my total body. This improvement in flexibility has improved my quality of life and my golf game. Thank you for your videos and other assistance.

We'd Like to Tell You About One of Brian's High School Cheer Clients

We helped her but we'd like to help you BEFORE you experience an injury.

This senior high school student had been in the cheer team for the past 2 years.

She LOVED being part of the team.

But, she was in a lot of pain.

Her sacrum hurt, her shoulders hurt and her entire back hurt.

Her parents brought her to doctor after doctor with no long term solution. The family was frustrated and worried. The high school student was scared that she would have to give up cheer for good.

Some of the comments they heard where:

  • Was she just being an overly dramatic teen?
  • Sore muscles are common because she is working out so much.
  • Someone this young really shouldn’t be complaining so much, after all she was only in cheer, which is not a contact sport like football.

When this student athlete saw Brian he found that her muscles were incredibly tight. Just touching her shoulders made her wince. He asked her if she was doing any foam rolling or self care, and she replied they stretched at practice.

During their first few sessions together Brian showed her how to use the foam roller with the same techniques found in the Ultimate Foam Roller Blueprint©. She was amazed at how well it worked her muscles.

This teen needed more rehab help than massage and foam rolling. She worked with a skilled Physical Therapist too. After 6 months of focused massage, PT and daily foam rolling at home she is back to participating in cheer competitions.

This student’s mom was so relived to have found Brian, who was able to offer help but also offer something that her student could do at home to support the rehab process.

If this student had started the Ultimate Foam Roller Blueprint© for High School and Collegiate Students when she first began cheer or when she first started to feel sore, achy muscles, she may have skipped 6 months of pain, searching for answers and hefty doctor/rehab bills. With consistent foam rolling her muscles would have been more healthy and flexible. She also would have been a more informed, stronger self advocate who would have known when her pain was not “normal” anymore.

An important part of the Ultimate Foam Roller Blueprint© for High School & Collegiate Athletes is education in injury; when to tell parents, coaches or trainers about muscular or joint pain, what is good pain vs bad pain and warning signs of common muscular injuries.

Honestly, the Reason Why Brian Developed These Unique Foam Rolling Techniques is, Because He was in Serious Pain Himself.

This is Brian's Story...

​"My body was hurting.  A​LL OVER.  I didn’t want to see another client because I was in such pain.  

My muscles were so tight and sore I felt like I was 110 years old.

I was seeing clients and massaging their tight muscles while mine were in​ just as much pain, if not more.

 Honestly, I was in so much pain that I had to quit.  I closed my thriving massage practice that I had since 2004.  

That is when I decided I needed to take self care seriously and I started to foam roll regularly at home.  Every morning and every night I would work my muscles with my roller.

What I realized was that the way I was using my roller was pretty limited.  I couldn’t get deep into my muscles like the way I wanted to.  

That is when I started to use my experience from 10 years in the sports massage field to make the foam roller do what a Rehabilitative Massage Therapist would do.  During this time I developed the techniques to effectively get the foam roller deeper into my muscles and with consistent foam rolling my muscles felt better.
* I was not in constant pain.  
* I had regained my flexibility.
* I was ready to get back to doing what I loved doing.

I was ready to open my practice again, and I did!

This time, I taught my sports massage clients the foam rolling techniques that I had developed and you know what, it helped them tremendously!  They were able to continue doing what they loved, which was their sport.

In time I knew I had to share these techniques with others, so my wife and I worked together to  develop The Ultimate Foam Rolling Blue Print.
