Sam is a truly extraordinary training professional. Over the last year, with Sam’s thoughtfully directed highly targeted exercise program I have become stronger throughout my body, in particular my abs! Combining exercise training with Sam with MAT allows me to confidently ski and surf without hurting myself.

He has put me back together after two C-sections and 80+ hour work weeks. I feel better overall today than I did in my early 20’s.

As a former amateur and student athlete, I have had exposure to numerous trainers and methods of training over the years. Put simply, Sam is the very best! I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a new and highly effective way of training. He has put me back together after two C-sections and 80+ hour work weeks. I feel better overall today than I did in my early 20’s.

For those of you who aren’t familiar with Muscle Activation Techniques, I’d suggest getting to know it!

HUGE thanks to Sam for helping me with injury prevention before my 2nd round of EAFF East Asian Cup in Hong Kong for Guam. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Muscle Activation Techniques, I’d suggest getting to know it! As an ‘older’ athlete, I am a MEGA believer in preventing injuries before waiting for them, so this is my game changer!

After 20 years of chronic elbow tendinitis, I decided it was worth trying something different, and, I'm so happy that I did! I had been a "traditional" patient seeing doctors and physical therapists to treat my condition over the years. When I first started seeing Sam for Muscle Activation Technique (MAT) I could barely move my left arm it was so painful. After a few sessions, the pain decreased so much and I could actually use my arm again. What I really like about MAT is that it is non-invasive unlike the cortisone shots I tried. Sam worked his MAT magic and showed me strengthening exercises to keep the muscles activated. Thanks to Sam, I am back to exercising, gardening, yoga, cooking and all the things that I hadn't done for years!

I visited Kinetic Performance and was impressed with the quality of service and level of knowledge that I received from Sam. He really has a deep understanding for how the body works and knows how to identify areas that are in need of improvement. His approach starts with a diagnostic of the body and then he creates a custom treatment plan for his clients based on his discoveries. Muscle Activation Technique is a great way to get athletes to where they want to be physically and is ideal for anyone looking to increase their flexibility and strength, regardless of their level of athleticism.

I have been working with Sam for the last year and a half and I can say confidently that I will be a client for life. He is not only an intelligent professional, but an individual who is passionate about his craft. As an active individual who trains Brazilian Jujitsu and rugby, I tend to come in pretty messed up, but I always leave feeling like a new man. Sam always seems to have the solutions to my problems. If you are on the fence about reaching out, don't be! I don't go anywhere else for issues with or questions about my body.

I have been working with Sam for over a month now and it has been incredible. As a chiropractor, I have had experience with all types of therapies but his MAT work is so different. I notice immediate changes in how I feel after a session. I have better range of motion and any tight areas seem to be relaxed and out of pain. Even if you think you've tried everything, give Sam a try- I guarantee you will see a difference!

As a competitive soccer player (who also engages in various sports and activities), I used to find myself plagued and frustrated by multiple muscular injuries which prevented me from playing soccer and doing other things I enjoy. That was before I met Sam and was introduced to MAT. I started off doing a couple sessions a week for the first few months. It has been 10 months since my first session, and I have had NO muscular injuries to date. In addition, I feel much stronger than I have in a long time and am able to play soccer and perform other activities free of pain. I strongly recommend Sam AND MAT to anyone who leads an active lifestyle.

I've been coming here since season began with the San Diego Sea Lions, there is a lot to say about how great this place is but every year during season I have struggled with soreness and muscle fatigue, which has lead to minor injuries during season. This has been the first year that I haven't had any minor injuries that have kept me off the field. I know the reason is because of my treatment here at Kinetic Performance. Sam has done an incredible job with our players. Thank you for all the support and effort Kinetic Performance!!!

I'm an ex pro goalkeeper from England, I arrived in San Diego roughly 5 months ago. As soon as I arrived I developed a trapped nerve in my right shoulder. I visited the doctor who advised a cortisone injection. No help. Next he advised a course of three injections at $600 each injection. Again no help. Acupuncture, deep tissue massage, no help. I spent close to $3500 and no help. The next course of action I was told by the doctor was surgery!! This is when I bumped into Sam, he said he might be able to help me. I thought why not, better than surgery but to be honest I had resigned myself to having the surgery. After I had my initial assessment and treatment with Sam I started to feel the trapped nerve begin to release immediately. After another session 90% better, now four sessions or so thru and we are moving onto different injuries. The trapped nerve is now in the rearview mirror and Sam is working away on all my old injuries I accumulated thru my playing and coaching career. I couldn't recommend Sam and the techniques he uses highly enough. My wife is booked in to see Sam as she has seen first hand what benefit Sam's work has had on me. If you have an injury or weakness that is causing you any type of discomfort or pain, give Sam a go. Money well spent. I'm an English guy and we say what we mean, no bull!!
