“My 15 year old swimmer daughter was plagued by shoulder pain for 4 long years. In order to try and stop the pain during that time, we went to 5 therapists and had numerous sessions with each of them! I am soooo relieved to say that the COR took care of her in VERY short order. Their experience as a high level competitive swimmer is invaluable and my only regret is that it took us so long to find them!”
-Vern L., Santa Clara Swim Club Parent
“My hip had been hurting for months at school. When I came back to SCSC for the summer, the Center of Optimal Restoration worked with me to where I could finally swim without trouble. They also helped me when my back began bothering me. The combination of his knowledge, restoration sessions, and suggested exercises helped me excel in my races and practices. He prepared me for the summer season and sent me back to college with a much better hip and back.”
-Stephanie W., Rice University
“Thank you for taking the time and working with me this summer COR. For two months you helped me, pushed me and were always optimistic. I’m feeling a great and ready for a new season now because of you!”
-Siri K., Indiana University
“I’m a upcoming Junior at Trinity University where I swim the 200 Backstroke. I’ve experienced little improvement since high school. The COR worked with me to help me develop a weight training regiment that I understand and can stick to throughout the season and I already notice improvement after only 3 months. I’ve experienced left shoulder and back symptoms since my sophomore year in high school. COR’s program helped me strengthen my shoulders and gain lower back strength and flexibility while improving my swimming results.”

“When I started working with the COR I needed to get back into my triathlon racing weight. COR set up an individualized swimming, resistance training, and nutritional plan to meet my weight loss and training goals. After 6 weeks I dropped 7 seconds in the 200 free and 9% body fat in 12 weeks!”

“With COR bootcamp I look forward to working out every morning. COR designs a workout routine in such a manner that you are never bored! He not only makes sure you are working out, but also working out correctly! COR’s patience, motivation and passion for overall health make the workout experience fun, help bring self awareness, and transforms me into a happier self. Thanks COR for your support and your belief in me that I can achieve my goals!”
“When I began training with the COR bootcamp at my son’s pool, I was troubled by an active sciatic nerve and feeling tired all of the time. I knew I had gained weight with a job in which I was commuting 1 1/2 hrs a day. COR suggested a diet to help with quick weight loss and his workouts were intense and focused. I was able to lose 15 pounds and 3.4% body fat in about two months. I feel more healthy and have much more energy! I am well on my way to reaching my goals and I only have words of praise for the COR Bootcamp!”
“Total professionalism. This is the first thing that comes to mind in reference to how I view COR’s capabilities as my Boot Camp. He is a dedicated and highly creative. He uses his vast knowledge of fitness and nutrition to custom design programs to the individual needs of his clients. COR has a natural ability to motivate, inspire and draw out the very best in his clients I find that John very knowledgeable in respect of the mechanics of the body and the isolation of specific muscles. He is always well prepared for our sessions, keeps them interesting and takes the time to “educate” me in respect of why we do certain exercises versus others and the benefits related thereto. COR is also very mindful of injuries I have sustained from some of my other activities and has altered my programs so as to avoid injury aggravation and to strengthen specific muscle group’s so as to avoid injury again. In my few months of training with COR, I truly enjoyed the personal attention, encouragement, and unique workouts he never failed to come up with. COR is a pleasure to work with!”
“Thank you again for the DRY-LAND TRAINING offered by COR to our daughter since she started the personalized dry-land with you last September of 2012. At first we just want her to have dry-land with you to reduce the risk of swimming related injuries but we observed that she started to develop exceptional start, stroke and turn techniques through increased strength and flexibility. And the last one we notice with our daughter is her Dry- Land training with COR that enhance her self confidence. We believe that the dry side of the physical curriculum is of COR is just as important as the wet side. COR’s huge contribution of our daughter’s success in swimming: Her dream to be in the TOP 10 NATIONAL AGE GROUP RANKING IN LONG COURSE (11 y.o.group), she train hard and now she achieve some of her goals.”
