The RMCSR's Performance Center is a mobile, field-based fitness laboratory that specializes in neuromuscular training to enhance movement quality, athletic performance and safety.
The RMCSR offers field-based training services for athletes of all ages; and for individuals, groups or teams.
Movement quality is the focus of RMCSR training because it is often replaced in training and conditioning programs with the basic components of fitness such as strength, agility, endurance, power and speed. However, focusing solely on measures of athleticism during training and conditioning can lead to a "performance paradox," whereby an individual can demonstrate extreme levels of athleticism but still display significant movement dysfunctions that influence injury risk. This concept is demonstrated as an iceberg effect where performance, represented by the tip of the iceberg, is built upon movement quality, the functional determinants of movement, hidden beneath the water line.
Movement quality and performance measurements are offered for the customization of individual training programs, progress evaluations and training success. See our Instrumentation section for examples of our measurement tools.
Free neuromuscular warmup videos and educational content will be available on the Wellness tab in the RMCSR Community Movement app.

The RMCSR is pleased to announce Mr. Danny Blake, MS, CSCS as the new Director of Human Performance. Danny served as a RMCSR Research Assistant in the summer of 2018 and we are convinced that he will be the key component of translating and advancing our evidence based training programs into the community. Danny currently lives in the Aspen, Colorado community and will launch the RMCSR's first mobile training and diagnostics lab where he will perform evidenced based training with local and aspiring athletes. The development of this outreach program will serve as the template for our Parker community and is only the tip of the iceberg as he aspires to develop the RMCSR's center of excellence in winter sports research and human performance.
Danny’s interests in health and human performance are aimed at leveraging the collaboration of scientists and practitioners across the various sub-disciplines of movement science to strategically provide practical, user-friendly solutions. Danny skied NCAA D1 for all four years of his eligibility and earned his Bachelor of Science in Exercise and Sport Physiology, with a minor in Biology, from Plymouth State University. He then went on to earn a Master of Science in Kinesiology from California State University, Fullerton, where he directed the Biochemistry and Molecular Exercise Physiology laboratory investigating human muscle function. He is a strength and conditioning specialist and avid outdoor sport adventurer. He is currently helping athletes achieve their goals in the mountains. In his free time, he enjoys reading, learning new skills, hip-hop music, and going fast.
