Darren Stroh, M.S., CES,CPT-NASM


Thank you for visiting, my name is Darren Stroh.  I am a Certified Corrective Exercise Specialist (CES) and Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and hold a Masters Degree in Corrective and Rehabilitative Exercise.   As a CES and CPT, I specialize in helping people achieve their strongest self, by restoring the body to optimal force capability through my Optimal Performance Mode which corrects neuromuscular dysfunctions and strengthens the body as a single kinetic chain of movement


Daily Applications

It doesn’t matter if you’re young or old, an athlete or long hours at a desk job, we all want to move as strong as we possibly can and be free from injury!

Staying Active

Sports Performance

Older Populations

“Our bodies operate in a manner that must be determined through our central nervous system; what forces or resistance our body is being subjected to, and what is the desired outcome or movement our body wishes or needs to perform. At this point, our body is designed in a manner that requires each joint to be properly aligned and mobile to not hinder the mobility of another acting joint. Any breakdown of one joint can create a disruption or dysfunction of another joint in our kinetic chain.”


Optimal Performance Mode (OPM) is very much like an engine that has cylinders, firing back and forth that create power that enable the car to move.  Our muscle fibers have little cylinders, called Sarcomeres, and each one of these units are able to contract (shorten) to allow our bones to move against resistance.  Just as a motor that has a cylinder that is unable to fire results in loss of power, a Sarcomere that does not contract also diminishes our muscular force output.  These muscular “adhesions” that occur in the Sarcomere result from overstress to a muscle and in order to prevent further injury or damage, this unit will “seize” and lock up.  OPM restores each Sarcomere to its normal capacity to allow for optimal force output from that muscle fiber.

“We must understand that we rarely move in an isolated manner; but a series of interconnected movement patterns through multiple planes of motion.”
