Charlie Weingroff, DPT is a Renaissance Man! After 12 years in the NBA as the head strength and conditioning coach for the Philadelphia 76ers, he added the doctorate to his PT degree and went to work as lead PT and trainer for the US Marine Corps Special Operations. Charlie’s work is highly influenced by his involvement with FMS, DNS and recently RKC. He has been pivotal in arguing for the inclusion of qualified personal trainers in the rehab continuum and his DVDs, Training = Rehab, Rehab = Training help show trainers how to integrate with rehab clinicians like physical therapists, chiropractors and medical physicians. Plainly put, if you’re a personal trainer, and you don’t have these DVDs, you’re behind the curve. Get them and take your seat at the table with those of us who are part of the Rehab Renaissance and let’s make a difference in public health! To help foster that movement, Charlie has also been very helpful in providing direction and guidance on MyRehabExercise.com. This library of functional corrective exercise videos is only $9.99 per month and will help clinicians and trainers teach excellent rehab exercises to patients and clients. Trial it for only $1 for 30 days, no contract or obligation. Check out the information video to the right of the page here.
