Warren Potash, Fitness Therapist

Mr. Potash is the co-author of Your Lower Back [1993], the first book written by a patient [Warren Potash before becoming a Fitness Therapist] and his doctor. His knowledge of low back pain led to his collaboration with Dr. Gordon and Mr. Filer producing the first program for health club trainers to work with their members who have low back pain [1995].

Warren was the only trainer [eliminating inter-testor reliability issues] to use the Sport Fit Conditioning guidelines and progressions to help almost 200 adolescent female student-athletes improve their athletic performance and minimize their risk for injury.

He has developed a product to help adolescent female athletes [to be launched in 2004] with his colleagues for those female student-athletes who cannot work directly with a trainer and for coaches who want to take a proactive approach for their athletes.

Mr. Potash was responsible for improving team speed for the 1999 Princeton University Tigers softball team and he has successfully trained adolescent student-athletes for basketball, soccer, volleyball, softball, lacrosse, field hockey, and sprinters and distance runners.
