Upcoming Seminar Opportunity: Need Your Feedback!

Written on December 30, 2009 at 2:26 pm, by Eric Cressey

Neil Rampe is a good friend of mine who works for the Arizona Diamondbacks, and just so happens to be one of the smartest (and most humble and approachable) dudes I know.  I spent three days with him out in Arizona in November, and he opened my eyes to so much great stuff that I couldn’t wait to bring him out to Boston for a seminar at Cressey Performance.  He’s got a crazy busy schedule, so we just now firmed up a date that he could do such an event here in Massachusetts: Sunday, January 24.

To that end, before we make it official, I want to quickly gauge who would be interested.  The price would be $149 for a full day’s seminar (food and handouts included), and we’d keep the headcount down to ensure that all the hands-on stuff includes plenty of direct interaction with Neil.  The overall theme of the event would be Movement Integration and how there are different schools of thought (Mezieres, Myers, Janda, and Hruska, to name a few) and modalities that can be applied along with some solid fundamental critical thinking skills to address the specific needs of athletes and clients.

Before we make this official and make more details known, I want to know that we have a good enough headcount to pursue this.  So, I thought I’d throw it out there to you.  If you are interested, please email me at ec@ericcressey.com right away to express your interest.

Below, you’ll see Neil’s bio; it should give you a quick glimpse into just how great a perspective he’s got:

Neil Rampe is currently in his third year as the Manual Therapist for Major League Baseball’s Arizona Diamondbacks. Neil’s education includes an Associates degree in Personal Training as well as Bachelors degrees in Athletic Training and Physical Education with an emphasis in Strength & Conditioining from the University of Findlay in 2000.

  • I would be in.

  • Ulisses Jara

    Hi Eric,
    any chance you’ll be taping this?
    Sounds like a great class but doesn’t
    seem likely Ill make it up to Boston for one day.

  • Sorry, Ulisses; we won’t be taping!

  • Hi there EC!

    I am not sure how I missed this, but I won’t be able to get away this weekend.

    I did get the chance to meet Eric last night while was here at an informal session that Cal Dietz put together for some local coaches/trainers/therapists.

    WOW! Neil has some great stuff and if the seminar is still going on (or happens later) I would HIGHLY encourage everyone to go. If it is later, I am going to try very hard to make it.

    Rock on
    Mike T Nelson
