Gloucester, VA (PRWEB) February 14, 2013
The Gloucester, Va. Tidewater Performance Center is pleased to welcome Justin Heinle to the training team. Heinle, an accomplished athlete and trainer, will work with student athletes and adults, helping them reach their fitness and sports goals on and off the field.
"I am very excited about having the opportunity to work for Tidewater Performance, because I am given the chance to positively change the lives of everyone I work with, both fitness and athlete,” said Heinle. “I can confidently tell our clients that no one is going to put as much effort and energy into their fitness and performance workouts as my colleagues and I here at Tidewater Performance.”
Heinle, a 2006 graduate of Knoch High School in Saxonburg, Pa., earned his undergraduate degree in sports fitness and wellness, and his Master’s Degree in Performance Enhancement and Injury Prevention from California University of Pennsylvania (CalU).
“Tidewater is committed to hiring world class trainers,” said Natalie Conway, a physical therapist and Tidewater Physical Therapy’s Gloucester Regional Director. “Justin is no exception and we’re excited to have him on board. He clearly has a passion for making every body stronger in life and in sport.”
The Tidewater Performance Center is part of the Tidewater Physical Therapy family of clinics and training facilities, which are located throughout Central and Southeastern Virginia. The Tidewater Performance Center in Gloucester opened in 2012, the second for the company, which opened its first Performance Center in Newport News in 2011.
Heinle is certified by the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Performance Enhancement and Speed Explosion Specialist and has coached nationally ranked athletes in swimming, running and tennis.
"Having Justin Heinle on board here at Tidewater Performance as one of our Performance Coaches is truly a home run,” said Josh Miller, Head Performance Coach in Gloucester. “His knowledge, experience, and commitment to providing the highest quality service is what sets him apart."
Heinle is passionate about sports, having served as a starting player for his high school soccer team and spending two years playing for the Pittsburgh Harlequins, a Division 1 Premier Men’s League.
While in college, Heinle played for CalU’s rugby team and served as team captain for two seasons.
Before joining Tidewater Performance, Heinle worked as the Athletic Strength and Conditioning Graduate Assistant at CalU and training athletes that now play professional football and baseball.
When he’s not in the Performance Center, Heinle is outside snowboarding, hiking, rock climbing and participating in triathlons.
“It’s an honor to come to Gloucester and join the Tidewater Performance team,” Heinle said. “Whether you are an athlete playing on a team or an adult who wants to be strong for a run or to be with your kids, I have a passion for helping you get better.”
