Alpine Training Project (ATP) started out with Mitch Owens PT, Mandie Majerus PT and Kristen Vaughan PT geeking out on physical therapy as it applied to common winter sport injuries we were seeing in the clinic. We decided to look at certain movement patterns, functional strength benchmarks and mobility norms to see if we could correlate these with the most common ski and snowboard related injuries. Alpine Training Project was designed to be the gold standard for injury reduction with an ultimate goal of enhancing performance on the snow through sport-specific training. Common themes across the winter sports research tomes were dynamic knee control, muscle balance between the quadriceps and hamstrings, trunk mobility and core strength, eccentric quadriceps control and foot and ankle stability.
Our programs are designed to allow you to train with a whole season in mind while tracking your progress. We are all licensed physical therapists with backgrounds in recovery science, zone based training, squat biomechanics and the principles of physiologic adaptation. ATP is research-led with the individual starting point driving the component exercises. See how dryland training can exponentially improve your time in the mountains.
