Testimonials

"As a Team USA Figure Skater I spend as much time on recovery as I do training on the ice. Chris Phillips with Compete has been a great addition to my team. I rely on Chris and his staff as the primary resource for sports rehab and massage. He has been instrumental in my overall wellness and conditioning."

Mariah Bell, 2020 US Figure Skating National Championship Women's Silver Medalist

 

"It’s been challenging to stick to my home workouts and find motivation during these different times. With the Compete Home Workout I don’t have to think about what i’m doing that day, having a set plan and direction in my workout makes it easier for me to get started and makes it feel like I’m back to training with a purpose. It’s also a great reminder to create good habits - like following a proper warm up and a great opportunity for improving form when many of the movements are body weight focused. Thanks Chris and the Compete team for helping me stay game ready, for whenever that may be!"

Chris Phillips and the Compete team have helped me a lot during my professional career. Whenever I come home, they are willing to work with me and whatever my body needs during the different phases of the offseason. I have learned to properly manage my body and maintain an injury-free career. My brothers have also been able to develop their strength with the Compete team. My youngest brother was able to return from a broken ankle faster than if he had gone anywhere else and with increased mobility and strength! My middle brother who just had hip surgery is utilizing Compete’s amazing virtual rehab training sessions to continue strengthing his hips and body all while social distancing!

As a pediatric and sports medicine specialist, when my patients work with Compete, I am confidently assured that they are receiving high quality and individualized care. Chris Phillips could have easily called his facility Complete, as he and his staff strive to get a comprehensive look at each client with a focus not just on what is going on now, but why did an injury occur and what can be done to prevent problems in the future.
You will he challenged at Compete- not just with your physical rehabilitation but with questions and recommend about sleep, nutrition, mental state, and future goals. You will receive appropriately aggressive care that comes from years of experience treating professional, collegiate and school-aged athletes. You will have fun, you will work, and ultimately you will leave Compete as a better athlete who is more informed, aware of your particular needs, and ready to compete both now and in the future. Chris and his staff are also utmost in client advocates and amazing communicators. I can't tell you how many times I have been greeted with an early morning text with an update or question on a mutual patient. They aren't afraid to have the tough conversations that are sometimes needed to create clarity for the best long-term outcomes.
Compete is also an amazing community resource providing expert athletic training and sports medicine injury reduction and evaluation services. If you see their staff and tents at your next competition, tournament or event, know that you are teaming with the best in the game.I am grateful to have Compete as a trusted comprehensive sports medicine and strength and conditioning resource for patients to get stronger, recover from injury, and grow more mature and self-confident.

"Chris Phillips and his staff offer and off ice aspect that is a crucial partof a player's development"

Larry Barron, President of Barron Hockey Academy

 

 

"I tore my ACL and had it repaired in June (9 months post-op now). Ever since then, I have gone to Compete regularly, maybe 1-2 times a week. The trainers push you hard but also make sure that you are okay. The difference between Compete and other facilities is that they care about each person's progress and love to see their clients succeed. Especially if you are in a competitive sport, they keep that in mind and use it to improve your workout. I know of a lot of people and friends who have torn their ACL like I have, but they went to different trainers. Some of them are still in recovery, even though its been over a year. They say that they are not being pushed very hard and it makes them more susceptible to another injury. Another thing I like about Compete is that they are very conscious about injury prevention."

Nicole Y, High School Soccer Player

 

  "I have known Chris at Compete for so many many years that I feel very confident in giving him praises. He has rehabed back to full-go so many of my surgical and non-surgical      patients for years that I can't keep count. He is an expert in getting people back to sports at a level even better than they were before their injury. He is extremely knowledgeable,    a patient advocate and is focused on getting patients back to their best possible physical condition. I highly suggest you consider letting Chris take care of you for any orthopedic      issue."

    Dr. Scott Graham, SCOS

His training methods have increased their footspeed, quickness, core strength, and power required to play hockey at an advanced level. Chris has brought his experience working in the National Hockey League to the private sector and can really aid amateur and pro players to compete at their best. If you're a hockey player looking to improve your game or recover from an injury, I would definitely suggest that you contact Compete Sports Performance and Rehab."

"Chris Phillips of Compete Sports Performance is the real deal. Having a resume like his would be hard to find in other trainers. Both male and female athletes alike benefit from his years with the NHL and professional hockey as well as with the WPS training and looking after the best women soccer players in the world. There are loads of companies out there but few can match the experience and professionalism of Compete Performance. I am fortunate and proud to say that Chris is and hopefully will always be a part of our staff for speed, strength, agility training, injury prevention, and rehabilitation."

- Pete McNulty, Head Coach, Laguna Hills Eclipse GU15

"I had a complete microfracture of my left knee. The physical therapy I was put through by some of the most well renown therapists didn't leave my leg muscles as strong or responsive as I needed or had direction. My legs gained more strength, range of motion, and tone in 8 weeks than in my entire physical therapy. He is brilliant and I'm so thankful to him for getting me back to doing the training I haven't been able to do."

- Jill Montgomery, Former USA Track & Field Indoor National Champion
