During the start of my junior year (‘08) of football at Pinkerton Academy, I tore my ACL and meniscus and had reconstructive knee surgery in September of 2008. With no chance of continuing a football career, I looked forward to my spring sport, lacrosse. After a long recovery period I thought I was ready to play in the spring of my senior year (‘10). However, I reinjured my knee halfway through the season damaging my meniscus and cartilage.
At the start of summer I began training at the Complete Athlete facility with the recommendation from my doctor, Dr. Patrick Casey, Concord Orthopedics. Throughout the summer of 2010, I trained hard with the three day program in order to hopefully heal and prepare myself for the start of my college lacrosse career at the University of Arizona. With their guidance and instruction, I regained my strength, brought back my speed and quickness, and most of all, I’m now confident on my knee. I don’t hesitate on the repaired knee or favor the stronger leg.
As I ship off to college, I feel I’m in my best condition ever and well prepared for college athletics. I will continue to use Complete Athlete on breaks and during the summers. I recommend this program highly for any athlete or anyone looking for a high intensity workout. Thanks Gerry & Nate!!
