Register Now for the 1st Annual Cressey Performance Fall Seminar

Written on August 23, 2012 at 7:13 pm, by Eric Cressey

I’m psyched to announce that on Sunday, October 28th, we’ll be hosting our first annual fall seminar at Cressey Performance.  This event will showcase both the brand new Cressey Performance, as well as the great staff I’m fortunate to have as part of my team, and our outstanding sponsor, New Balance.  We want to make this an affordable event for everyone and create a great forum for industry professionals and fitness enthusiasts alike to interact, exchange ideas, and learn.

Here are the presentation topics:

Understanding and Managing Congenital Laxity – Presented by Eric Cressey

In this era of semi-private training, boot camps, and group exercise, it’s not uncommon for coaches and trainers to try to train all athletes and clients the same. This can quickly lead to injury in a population with significant congenital laxity. In this presentation, Eric will teach you how to assess for laxity and safely train with it to improve how people feel and move.

The Food Freakshow: What Will You Be Eating in the 21st Century? – Presented by Brian St. Pierre

Burgers grown from dinosaur DNA? Tomatoes carrying a delicious basil lemon gene? Red meat with the fatty acid profile of an avocado? Science is starting to change the way we look at food. And in the coming years our food will be very, very different. Want to know what you’ll be eating? What your kids will be eating? What your grandkids will be eating? Let Brian untangle the mystery. In this talk he’ll discuss what’s on the horizon for those of us who like to eat, and like to eat healthy. Join him for a fascinating exploration of the future of food – and for useable, practical strategies you can put into action immediately.

Deep Squats: Are They Worth It? – Presented by Tony Gentilcore

In this presentation, Tony will highlight research on the squat under various conditions and discuss population-specific considerations one must take into account when programming squat variations. He’ll discuss improving the squat pattern, as well as exercise recommendations for those who should avoid squatting altogether in their programs.

“Out with the Old:” A new model for preventing injury and improving performance in the throwing athlete – Presented by Eric Schoenberg

The system is broken! Injury rates at all levels of baseball are alarming. Despite improvements in research, technology, and sports medicine principles, the numbers continue to rise. Each year, teams work tirelessly and spend millions to recruit, draft, and sign the best talent from all over the world. However, only a small percentage of that money is invested to keep these athletes healthy and allow them to showcase their talent on the field. This presentation will help to debunk some common myths, identify disturbing problems, and provide solutions to help keep athletes on the field and out of the training room.

How “Strong” Does An Athlete Need To Be? – Presented by Greg Robins

In this presentation, Greg will discuss how various strength qualities contribute to an athlete’s power potential. Each sport requires a slightly different blend of these strength qualities to provide for high-level performance. Learn which qualities athletes need to improve and how to get the job done.

Current Trends in Manual and Manipulative Therapy – Presented by Nathaniel Tiplady

Nate will present a review of Active Release Technique, Graston Technique, Fascial Manipulation, and joint manipulation. He’ll cover what we know, what we don’t know, and present his thoughts and experiences on the best methods to get people pain-free.

Program Design Considerations for the Young Athlete – Presented by Chris Howard

In this presentation, Chris will discuss important considerations one must take into account when designing and implementing programs for young athletes. Topics to be covered are exercise selection and progression, creation of a fun training environment, and the role of the strength coach in educating young athletes. He will stress the fact that young athletes can be trained similarly to adults, but that there are distinctions that need to be made.

  18. Mike Says:

    I’m registered for the seminar and looking forward to it,but have a question about transportation. I’m coming from Virginia and most likely will be flying, is there another airport closer to you than Boston that regularly uses the main airlines? Thanks!

  19. Eric Cressey Says:


    Logan (Boston) is the closest, although Providence is only about an hour away. You might want to check flights there, too.

  20. Katherine Says:

    How many spots are open for this Seminar?

  21. Eric Cressey Says:


    We have about twenty spaces left. I expect a lot of sign-ups in the last five days before the early registration deadline (9/30), too.

    Sounds great. Just purchased 2 spots, looking forward to the event!

  23. Nate Says:

    Any chance this turns into a DVD or webinar later on?

  24. Eric Cressey Says:


    We have no plans to film it as of yet.


  25. Curtis Van Wyck Says:

    What airport would I fly into?

  26. Eric Cressey Says:


    Boston (Logan).

  27. Mike T Nelson Says:

    Looks like a great time for sure and unfortunately I won’t be able to make it this year–just too much going on right now while attempting to graduate plus teaching on top of everything else.

    I see that it is annual, so I should be able to make it out next year (and looking forward to traveling more then too).

    Keep up the great work EC and friends!
    Rock on

    Will there be snacks or lunch provided or should I pack a lunch?

  29. Eric Cressey Says:

    Hi Garrett,

    You’ll want to pack a lunch or go to pick one up during the break. We have a cafeteria in the building and they’ll have healthy food options available for purchase.
