PRIME uses neuroplasticity to develop the crucial relationship between the brain and the body. The science of neuroplasticity stimulates the brain’s response to physical activity that reconditions the body’s awareness. The PRIME METHOD produces movement efficiency and optimal performance, while reducing deterioration.

His coaching has reached the likes of professional basketball and rugby players, collegiate football and lacrosse players, and adolescents with the need for improved motor skills. 

His career started at Clemson University where he was a student assistant for the Men’s Basketball team from 2007-2010. During that time, Rose also worked under the Strength and Conditioning program assisting Head Strength Coach Preston Greene. His time at Clemson included a Top 25 AP ranking every season as well as 3 trips to the NCAA Tournament.

Michael C. Petrina is a Co-Founder of PRIME, an innovative sports performance facility combining fitness, movement and biomechanics. Michael specializes in pre-injury and post-rehab strength training and treatment. His treatment concentrates in neuromuscular structural integration that resolves injuries and discrepancies in biomechanics and anatomy. His cross-functional approach minimizes downtime as his clients can continue to build strength and flexibility while overcoming injury. Studying under Dr. Keith Pyne, a pioneer in corrective therapy, for over 3 years, Michael has honed his treatment skills and developed a system that corrects the actual cause of the pain. Unlike traditional methodologies that only treat symptoms providing just temporary relief, Michael's system is unique in that he incorporates manual therapy, proprioception, and corrective patterning to reset the brain's connection with the body. Addressing the problem where it starts, in the body's kinetic chain, is paramount in Michael's treatment philosophy - and why his clients consistently improve their performance. 

In recent years, Michael has worked with several professional athletes in post injury rehabilitation and biomechanical efficiency. He is currently a consultant with professional sports teams, assisting in the treatment and design of programs to reduce the chance of injuries. 






Ivan Tchatchouwo reinforces proper movement through structure function; which prepares the body’s mechanics to move properly. Tchatchouwo uses his experience studying under a combination of Dr. Sergai Delamora and Dr. Todd Narson to reveal fundamental deficiencies with a process to bring back structural integrity. In this time, Tchatchouwo retained a greater understanding for an ethical way of treatment. Comprising all of his previous and continued studies, Tchatchouwo has a keen vision of establishing a program for any sports related performances.

Tchatchouwo hails to us from Concordia College where he attained his Bachelor Degree of Arts studying Biology.
