Shoulder pain is easily one of the most frequent problems that both Dan and I encounter at the gym. It can really interfere with your training goals. Trouble is, not very many people know how to deal with shoulder pain, especially as an athlete. Most folks don't just want to get out of pain, they want to get back to tough training that includes exercises like bench press, olympic lifts and maybe some muscle-ups. They want high level performance.
Unfortunately, some doctors and physical therapists don't always understand this. They may tell you to just stop training in the gym, but you wouldn't have gone to the doctor in the first place if they were going to tell you that. You want someone to guide you back to what you love, hard training.
This disconnect between medical providers and athletes leads you to seek advice in strange places. You'll ask friends, search online forums and try bogus rehabilitation techniques from online training gurus.
In reality, we need science driven, evidence based advice from experts who do this for a living. You also need guidance from experts who actually understand what you're trying to get back to. You need someone who walks the talk. You need someone who trains like you and has a proven track record of helping others get to where you want to be. Dan Pope and Dave Tilley have come together to do just that.
Our new online course Peak Shoulder Performance is a brand new, cutting edge online course for athletes, trainers, and medical providers.

Most importantly, rehabilitation and performance is what I've devoted my life toward. It is absolutely my passion in life. I work with patients every day that I'm alive helping them to get out of pain and back to training. I'm a huge believer in walking the walk and talking the talk.

Hey I'm Dave Tilley,
I have my doctorate in Physical Therapy, a board certification in Sports Physical Therapy, and also have my Certified Strength and Conditioning certification
I spent 15 years as a gymnast, with 4 years competing collegiately on the Springfield College Men's team. I have also been coaching competitive gymnastics for 10 years.
I have been very fortunate to learn from and work with a huge range of athletes struggling with shoulder issues. I have been able to help athletes ranging from recreational fitness all the way up to elite level gymnasts, professional athletes, Division 1 athletes, CrossFit Games competitors, and more. This has given me the opportunity to help with the rehabilitative process, all the way up through the competitive performance arena.
There is nothing I love more than studying scientific research and applying it in the clinic to help athletes with shoulder issues get back to high level training.
Dan and I have taken all of our thoughts, information and protocols and wrapped it up into this brand new course for people to learn from. We are excited that it is finally available for public release, and we hope you enjoy it!
