CHRIS WORRELL MTA, ATC, CES
Licensed Athletic Trainer
Chris is an athletic trainer that has been a part of sports since he was a kid. He was no stranger to injury while growing up which sparked his interest in the medical side of sports. He did his undergraduate work at East Carolina University and while working there was selected to work as a Summer Intern for the Indianapolis Colts. It was here, while working a Monday Night Football game that he knew that he had found his calling.
Working along side athletes from immediate injury/surgery all the way until they are back to game/competition is what drives Chris to be the best at what he does. He likes to focus on the minute details of how an athlete moves and how to get the most out of every client/patient he works with. From top-level athletes to clients that just want to get the most out of their athletic body, he will put everything he has in his work.
Over the past 10 years he has worked with a wide range of athletes such as high school, NHL, NCAA Division I gymnasts, Olympic athletes and Cirque du Soleil performers. Chris has learned that focusing on single, individual parts of a clients body is not enough, “you most look at the big picture, and the body as a whole, to get it to peak performance.”
