1. They are simply the best!

    I am a 55 year old orthopaedic surgeon, handball player and sports junkie. About 6 years ago I started developing minor back issues probably from all the years of performing surgery in an upright position.

I then tried various yoga, and Pilates instructors and other personal trainers but that did not help either.…Read More

  6. Saw a dramatic increase in my level of play.

    Bystol Performance Center has helped me tremendously over the past two years. As of now I’m currently playing Junior A Hockey, soon to become a Division I athlete. In the weight room, I have become bigger, stronger and faster, which has increased my performance on the ice. Being that I have professional hockey ambitions, I believe that BPC will work with me inch by inch until I am able to achiev…Read More

  7. I recommend BPC to every athlete.

    BPC has transformed my flexibility, strength and speed that has allowed me to have a breakout year in football. In the past I did group training but at BPC they specifically designed a program to correct my imbalances, reduce injury and increase performance. It has been a game changer for me and I recommend BPC to every athlete looking to dramatically improve his or her performance…Read More

  10. Thank you so much!

    Thank you so much for all of the help that you have given me throughout the years. I can still remember the first time walking into BPC as a freshman in high school as I was searching for some edge that could help me make a difference at the AAA level. Well thanks to you guys and the rest of the BPC staff, I was able to accomplish that and much more by winning a NCAA National Championship with Yal…Read More
