Perform Better Training Summit

This week, the RFC team pursues continuing education in the form of the Perform Better Training Summit in Long Beach, Ca. Three days of lectures and hands-on instruction in the world of rehab, strength & conditioning, led by the top leaders in the field. My first experience with the training summits was in 2004. A colleague introduced me to the events and it reignited the passion to learn that had been almost extinguished due to youth and ego. After the first summit’s experience I vowed to never again let that desire to learn be placed on the back burner.

Since then, I have attended the summits almost every year. In fact, with the exception of the pandemic years, we make it a point to close down the training facility and bring all of the staff to Long Beach with us. It is a great time to solidify as a team, have fun, and share in the learning experience.

Many of the top presenters have been guests on the Zelos podcast and in 2019, I applied to become a member of the presenting team. Although they accept hundreds of applications from amazing speakers and teachers, Perform Better has only space to invite twelve speakers to join their ranks. Fortunately for me, in 2019, I was selected as one of the twelve.

Because of the pandemic, in 2020, the summit went virtual. It has taken four years for the summit to return to Long Beach. This will be the first time the RFC heads down south with the team we have today. A whole bunch of new faces get to go and soak in so much learning that it often feels like you are drinking from a fire hose. This will also be the first time I return to Long Beach, not only as a student, as a teacher too.
