Thank you for taking the time to come talk to us yesterday; I was totally

impressed with your message and all the data you had in your slides.  I know

I left motivated and thirsty for more

I just want to extend a sincere thank you for presenting at Nellis Air Force Base today (10/20/15). As a healthcare practitioner and fitness enthusiast, I too believe there is so much more we can do for our military members. I am willing to try my very best to get the Human Performance Project widespread throughout this base and hopefully the USAF.

Our Coaches Clinic in one of Chicago surburban towns Buffalo Grove went really well!

             Jorie Ouimet /Prevention Specialist:

"I wanted to thank you again for the outstanding coaches clinic last week. Feedback was fantastic on all of the evaluations and every coach said they wanted to see the LOA program at their school"                                                                                                                                    

In addition to the great feedback the morning after the clinic, the principal sent the note below to ALL parents of students that attend Buffalo Grove High School:

Bison Parents,

Yesterday, our 28 head coaches at Buffalo Grove High School were joined by another 40 coaches from around the area to hear from internationally known Human Performance Specialist, John Underwood.  Mr. Underwood has worked extensively with Olympic and Professional athletes, as well as the highest levels of the military special operations, helping humans perform at their peak.  He addressed such topics as drug and alcohol use, sleep, nutrition, diet, recovery, and injury prevention.  It was a great day, and very informative to our athletic department.  

It looks like a short trip to Libertyville, IL, on November 6, followed up by the visiti of an amazingly enthusiastic team to Chula Vista Training in October, might turn into a new super program in the suburbs of Chicago.


A big call out to the MASSENA HS Warriors for an 18-0 season and Section X Championship! Massena NY is one of our LOA Flagship Programs! These are committed athletes!
