Meet Your Performance Goals

Are you already fit, but frustrated that you can’t reach your performance goals?


We will analyze basic movement patterns, mobility, flexibility, and strengths / weaknesses in order to understand what an optimal starting point is for you. It’s extremely important that we don’t start you at a level that is too low, or too high so that you build a solid foundation and progress at an efficient rate so that you can reach your goals.


We will do a kitchen makeover assessment, 3 day food log, water intake analysis, and find out which foods are consistently present in your day-to-day life.


Specifically, we will analyze sleep and stress management as these will play huge roles in you reaching your performance goals.

Meet Matt

For the past seven years, I sought out more than a dozen specialists for chronic low back pain after being hit by a car. All the while enduring traditional PT approaches, X-Rays, MRIs, fluorscopies and epidurals without relief. Over the years, my pain went from simply being a nagging injury that decreased my physical activity, to the past year where it began to severely affect my overall quality of life. After trying seemingly everything else, I sought COVAL out at the recommendation of a friend. Through email, I was able to provide context for my injury and a history of the kinds of treatments I tried in the past. In our exchange, the responsiveness and attention to detail convinced I’d found someone who could help. I booked a flight from New York to fly to Michigan for an evaluation with Mike on a Friday morning. Pain rarely fits neatly into one physical therapy schema. Mike’s strength is that he’s not a strict adherent of one particularly ideology, but approaches his clients with a combination of expertise that offers a more holistic approach. Later that afternoon, I was at COVAL again for a one-on-one session with Mike to break-down my assessment. The approach was a routine that focused on exercises and stretches to help me get better, but also took into consideration the kind of athletic activities I was hoping to get back into (weightlifting, cycling, hiking). Mike was able to define a set of restrictions for these activities that could exacerbate my condition in the short-term. A traditional PT approach would bar you from any kind of physical activity until the pain is resolved, but COVAL gave me the ability to remain active and focus on my recovery at the same time. I was only able to have two sessions face-to-face at COVAL, but even afterward, Mike remained incredibly responsive to my questions and took great interest in how my recovery was going, checking in on me periodically by email and sending videos to help explain concepts I wasn’t quite grasping on my own. Through my experience at COVAL, I had Mike’s undivided attention. Though COVAL takes a thoughtful and clinical approach to his work, Mike made me feel more like a friend than a patient. I saw immediate results in the first two weeks, and continuing the foundation I was given at COVAL on my own for the past two and a half months, I’m happily pain free for the first time in seven years. I’m able to lift weights comfortably three times a week now and am currently training for a long-distance cycling race next spring. For anyone looking to take their performance to the next level and has hit a plateau whether it be persistent pain holding them back, their program not getting them the results that they want, or coaching from another professional that just isn’t getting them the results that they desire, then I can’t recommend the integrated experience at COVAL enough. I’m confident that you will get the results that you are looking for.


Matt was struggling with chronic aches and pains stemming from a car accident that prevented him from living the high performing, physical life style that he grown accustomed to. Only in his mid-20’s, Matt needed a solution. Check out his testimonial and a video of his results!
