Increased movement (mobility / stability, motor control, functional patterning) and performance (ability to generate power) are valuable assets that we will help develop in our athletes.

“What we do is not rocket science—it is actually more complicated. Rockets can be replicated exactly the same. Not one human is the same, and therefore they cannot be treated the exact same way.”

Coaches, know your sport and team’s abilities very well. However, there are only so many hours in a season. Student athletes have many more demands on their time than ever before.

USA U20 youth international Nick Taitague has joined compatriot Weston McKennie in Schalke’s first-team squad for their winter training camp in southern Spain as they gear up for the second half of the season.
Rory Weinfurther, a 14-year-old rising freshman at St. Catherine’s, on Tuesday surged into the quarterfinals of RWGA tournament match play with a 5-and-4 victory over Hamilton College player Libbie Warner. The experience is new for Weinfurther. Never before has she competed on the RWGA stage. Nor has she previously been exposed to the intricacies of match play. She concealed her naiveté well. She made a nasty downhill 5-footer to halve the first hole. Thereafter, her command was all but complete. Read More . . .

I have worked with Glenn for several years now, referring my physical therapy patients to him. Glenn is a high-energy and very well educated performance professional. He has a broad knowledge base and can apply his expertise to any level athlete and with any sport, with golf performance in particular. As I deal with injured athletes, Coach Glenn always takes injuries and over-training into consideration, which I find appropriate in this era of youth sports.

My son, Conor, has been working with Glenn for four years now. Glenn has developed his athleticism while also helping to develop his character. Glenn provides an encouraging and positive environment for his athletes. He genuinely cares for the kids and supports their efforts in and outside of the gym. He is a great role model for our kids and teaches integrity coupled with a strong work ethic. He is extremely knowledgeable about his craft and even endeavors to teach the kids about the different muscle groups, their functions, and how best to strengthen them safely. Glenn provides a positive, safe, and motivating environment where kids can accomplish their goals while improving their strength, agility, and overall athleticism.

I just turned 65 years old, and I have been playing golf for a number of years. I have also exercised on a regular basis most of my life. For the last year or so, I have noticed that it has become more difficult to swing the way I want. I have started to realize that the way I am exercising is not working for me and that there has to be another way. I work on my swing with Mike Hott at Salisbury Country Club, and I mentioned to him that maybe I need a personal trainer to guide me in exercising in the right manner. Mike recommended Glenn Pfluger at RVA Athletes. Glenn performed an evaluation to see where my strengths and weaknesses lie. I have been working with Glenn just over three months. I have seen considerable results, both in my everyday activities (I am still working), and most importantly, I have achieved a greater range of motion in my swing. I plan on working with Glenn to have better posture and more flexibility in my everyday life, and in my golf swing.

”an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” Benjamin Franklin
RVA Athletes is determined to keep athletes in the play and off the bench due to injury. Individuals are more sedentary and less active today; however, the demand for sports performance is higher than in years past. This combination results in increased risk for injury. If you are not assessing, then you are guessing. RVA Athletes screens all athletes for functional limitations and movement asymmetries which may lead to injury. The results of the screen will set the foundation of a program to increase natural movement patterns, unlocking performance while reducing the risk of injury.
What is a 360 Athlete?
At RVA Athletes we understand that for an athlete to perform at the elite levels, they must be able to have proper movement mechanics and performance based patterns. An optimally successful athlete must be trained in the following areas:
Mobility - Stability
Strength ‐ Speed
Deceleration ‐ Acceleration
Power ‐ Balance
Agility ‐ Coordination
Quickness ‐ Flexibility
Reaction time ‐ Confidence
