The bike and its rider should be one!
Remember your first Schwinn, it fit you perfectly and off you rode. As a competitive rider as well as a weekend warrior, it isn’t that simple any more. With certifications from Specialized and Medicine of Cycling, our system starts with an interview to understand the rider; his or her goals, current training, pain or discomfort on the bike as well as past injuries or trauma. This data, along with a twenty-point physical assessment to understand how the rider physically presents off the bike is used to fit the bike to the individual. While cycling is low impact, the rider is locked at the foot and hip making repetitive movements over extended periods of time, and if not positioned correctly, this can lead to over-use injuries and jeopardize power output. Our team understands that frame size, saddle position, handlebar and cleat positioning are critical components to successful cycling. Our bike fit ensures that your childhood Schwinn experience lives on through your 20s, into your 60s and beyond.
We help runners run better!
Let us help you run more efficiently, improve your stride and prevent future injury. At Dai, we help you understand the entire bio-mechanical puzzle that is your body. Your feet are only a small part of the whole-body activity that is running. Each client is analyzed statically, dynamically and finally running on a treadmill. Our analysis provides a unique, personal movement map of you. We utilize motion capture to pinpoint weak links in strength and movement patterns, which inhibit performance or lead to injury, and provide activation, mobility, stability, flexibility, and functional strength strategies to improve these weaknesses. The analysis of all these different elements taken together is what creates a complete picture of your gait. More than a gait analysis, it is movement analysis. Defining corrections to your map is our next step through coaching and training.
Dai Endurance’s return to sport program is based largely on the six month fellowship we invested with Dr. Chris Powers* at his USC-affiliated Movement Performance Institute**, as well as well as mentorships at EXOS, formerly Athletes’ Performance. Return to sport training is typically performed following the conclusion of formal physical therapy rehabilitation. This training helps you gain the necessary conditioning (activation, strength, movement re-education) to bridge the gap from where physical therapy ends to where you functionally need to be to return safely and successfully to sport. The goal of the training is to ensure that you are prepared for the demands of athletic competition and to minimize the risk of re-injury.
Dai Endurance’s injury prevention training program is based largely on the six month fellowship we invested with Dr. Chris Powers* at his USC-affiliated Movement Performance Institute**, as well as well as mentorships at EXOS, formerly Athletes’ Performance. Injury Prevention training follows a similar protocol to that established for return to sport. This proactive approach trains your ability to effectively and efficiently activate and recruit the right muscle at the right time, during the demands of sport. This training can be conducted individually or in sport-specific small group training sessions.
Dai Endurance massage therapists specialize in sports massage and deep tissue therapies. Every session is tailored to the specific needs of the client whether it be pre- or post-event sports massage, relieving chronic muscle tension and pain, or rehabilitation from injury.
