They had looked at previous data released by the National Fire Protection Agency and the International Association of Firefighters and realized that something could be done to protect the health of these men and women. Enter Athletes' Performance.

Athletes' Performance is well known for working with professional and elite athletes to improve their on-field performance by identifying and meeting the demands of their game. With three locations in the United States and international training systems, supporting athletes world-wide, they strive for ways to decrease injury potential and improve the overall health of their athletes and participate in a variety of research-based studies utilizing cutting edge science in their training methodologies. When they were approached by the University of Waterloo, they immediately wanted to participate.

"Athletes' Performance understands the need to continuously look for ways to improve our clients' performance," says Mark Verstegen, Athletes' Performance & Core Performance Founder & President. "Firefighters exemplify the essence of what we consider an 'athlete.' Their professional requirements necessitate the highest level of sustainable physical and mental performance in the most demanding situations, putting their life on the line everyday to help others. The mission is far greater than winning a game, or how fast they run. They compete in a game of life and death, putting the victims first, their peers next, and must be at their highest level of performance to live to save others, and love their families, another day. It is an awesome responsibility ... we have been humbled to serve for the last decade."

Verstegen then approached the Andrews Institute for Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine in Gulf Breeze, Florida. The Andrews Institute is well known for the medical treatmen
