Frequently Asked Questions
Convenience. We provide sports injury prevention services to athletes to allow them to participate in the activities they love by using high definition, 4K video-based learning programs that can be performed at any time and in any location.
Can you really reduce injury rate?
Sports injury prevention programs reduce rates of injury. Every research article performed has shown a reduction in those rates, most around 50% to 66% reduction, some up to 75%. But they are simply not being used.
Will my performance suffer?
While the focus of our programs is to reduce injury rates during sports, one of the benefits is improved performance. Simply put, those who participate in these programs become better athletes
What is the cost?
Less than $10 per session.
The price for our Injury Prevention Project programs is $100. This includes two sessions per week for eight weeks; 16 total sessions with video instruction. This works out to well under $10 per session.
Compare this with a physical therapist or personal trainer who will collect at least $50 per session.
We also understand that life happens and that $100 is a lot for many. That shouldn’t be a barrier. Therefore, we have a financial assistance program to help those that need it.
Injury Prevention should be available for all; this is how we make that possible.
There are many other options for injury prevention programs. Many of them, however, are focused on business profits. We are not. Injury Prevention Project is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our focus is on making leading injury prevention programs available to as many people as possible. One of the ways we do that by keeping costs down.
Is it convenient?
One of the ways we improve accessibility is by making our program one that can be done at times and places convenient for you. We provide the program components and a general outline of when they should be done, you choose the specific times.
How will I receive progressions?
You will receive an email each week with an upgraded program.
What's included in the Weekly Email?
The weekly email you receive includes a link to the program. The program indicates research-based exercises are to be performed in a specific order and a prescribed number of times. Each exercise has both a written description and a video demonstration to help teach you proper technique.
How long will I have access to my program?
When signing up, you receive lifetime access to that program. We frequently update the programs, so this extended access will benefit you long indefinitely.
Who should use this program?
Our Injury Prevention Project programs are designed for both novice and experienced athletes in many sports. We provide a variety of programs here, but if you find that you have a specific sports need, please contact us.
When should I use this program?
While it can be used successfully at any time, inserting this program during your off-season schedule makes the most sense.
Can you guarantee I won't get injured?
It is impossible for us, or anyone else, to guarantee you will not become injured. But, if performed consistently, our injury prevention programs of strength, plyometric, and training exercises will dramatically reduce your risk of injury, by up to 70%!
Strength training, especially of specific types of strength exercises, reduces the risk of injury. But these exercises cannot be done randomly, they must be part of a structured program. And the program must be done consistently.
Does experienced coaching matter?
We believe that expertise equals better results. Our Injury Prevention Project programs have been designed by a Board-Certified sports physical therapist and certified strength and conditioning specialist with extensive experience with both sports rehab and prevention. We believe this background and these experiences provide a more well-rounded, up to date, and safe program for your benefit.
Does research support this?
Every exercise of every program on our site has a purpose and every program is supported by research studies.
Do I need special equipment?
You will need access to dumbbells at a minimum. Other equipment that is helpful includes barbells and plyometric boxes (12″ – 42″). It is difficult to fully progress without these challenges.
What are some other benefits?
Benefits of Youth Athletics
Kids who are physically active are one-tenth as likely to be obese, less likely to have chronic disease, and more likely to stay in school. Sports participation improves relationships, builds confidence, and strengthens resilience.
Physically active children score higher on tests and are more likely to go to college. Sports help reinforce learning concepts and habits like repetition and problem-solving. Those skills, along with the sense of accomplishment that comes with learning, are transferable to the classroom and life.
Previously injured athletes retire at a higher rate than athletes without previous injuries, up to 70% reduction in sports participation. In other words, when injured, many simply do not return to previous activity levels.

What People Are Saying
How can I begin to express my sincere gratitude? In these last two months I’m not only had my physical recovery aided, but I’ve also had the rare opportunity to see compassion and sacrifice at its finest. I’m certainly honored to have met and worked with you.
Thank you so much for everything that you did for me. I really had a fun time with you! Thank you for helping me do a lot better on making my knees stronger and improving my vertical jump.
My experience was excellent. After sustaining a third ACL injury, I had lost much of my confidence and was very cautious with any movement. As an athlete, I needed to get this back as soon as possible. I not only with strengthened my knee, but also restored my confidence. By introducing various sport specific activities, including power lifts and plyometrics, I was ready to get back to athletics with the necessary confidence to succeed
As a runner for the last 30 years I understand the importance of proper rehab and conditioning to remain in the sport I love. After a significant injury cost me three months training I began working with Injury Prevention. With their guidance this year is turning out to be my best year in almost 2 decades. I highly recommend them to my athletes and to the running community as well.
My experience was more than I could ask for. The programs were so helpful and so up to date, I always knew I was in good hands. I would definitely suggest them to anybody who asked my opinion!
David is one of the best sports training and rehab minds I have run across in my 15 years as a competitive athlete and his information and training methods are always on the cutting edge of science. Over the course of the six years I’ve had a relationship with him, I have referred in several friends and loved ones there and will continue to do so without reservation. Thanks for everything you’ve done for me David.
The time and effort you have put into my growth and intelligence as a player and a person is beyond anything I could have asked for. I am ten times stronger and faster than when I started.
I spent a summer working with Injury Prevention Project. It was clear from the start that they have a terrific eye for performance, and are able to develop creative programs to help athletes do what they do best, and hopefully, do them better. The staff obviously exudes passion for the industry, and I would recommend any person who participates in any sort of competitive athletics (high school, college, or recreational) to work with them.
