Did you know that a recent article published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research revealed that of 132 cross fit athletes surveyed that 97 participants had sustained an injury that had prevented them from working, training or competing. Of these injuries, nine required surgery.
The sad fact is that most of these injuries are preventable. Unfortunately, most crossfitters lack the knowledge of how the body works during complicated movements under load…
What does that mean?!?
It means that getting looked over by a medical professional that is an expert in human movement and has experience with Olympic lifting and cross fit workouts is the best way you can be a part of the 26.5% of people that don’t get injured while participating in the sport of fitness.
Injuries suck. They keep you out of workouts and move your further away from your cross fit goals, and affect your ability to work and play with your kids.
So, how do you avoid becoming one of the over 70% of cross fit athletes that have an injury? Where can you find a medical professional that works with crossfitters every day to keep them on track with their goals?
Robbins Rehabilitation has developed The Functional Assessment of Movement and Exercise Screen. This tool was created to for the following purposes…
The FAME screen is a 13-movement examination performed by a licensed physical therapist that takes about 30 minutes in one of our clinics or at the cross fit gyms we partner with. We watch you move and help you correct faulty patterns with the help of our online video library of exercises.
Here’s what some Crossfiters are saying…
“I waited too long. My shoulder mobility has been an issue for a while and I just made compensations in my lifts to get around it. I got injured 6 weeks before Cross Fit regionals and it slowed down my training. Travis over at Robbins Rehabilitation fixed my shoulder after only 5 visits, but I lost valuable training time that hurt me in regionals. I wish I talked to him a long time ago.”
Kurt Miller – Owner of South Mountain Cross Fit
“I just started seeing the therapists over at Robbins Rehab after I got injured at Regionals. They found nerve compression in my neck and shoulder that was due to a lack of mobility in my shoulder blade. It feels better already, just after one visit, but I wish I had addressed this problem before I got injured.”

This one on one time with a licensed PT would usually cost you over $100. Because of our relationship with some cross fit gyms in the area, we are able to offer this to you at an extremely reduced rate of $19.99 but only if you act quickly. We only have 30 FAME Screen time slots available per month because of our busy schedule. Act now and schedule before the cost goes up and take advantage of this special offer TODAY.
If you have an injury that requires a course of physical therapy, the amount you pay for the screen will be applied to your patient bill.
If you are NOT a member of a cross fit gym that we participate with, talk to your gym owner and have them contact me directly at Travis@Robbinspt.com to set up a meeting so you and all of your fellow members can take advantage of our preferred pricing program.
Don’t wait for the inevitable. Take action. Fill out this form and speak with one of our therapists. We look forward to working with you soon.
