Train. Gain. Recover.

The Athlete’s Playbook

TGR’s Playbook was created for athletes and individuals seeking to achieve optimal health and physical performance post-injury.

Dispelling myths, debunking misconceptions, and relying on the expertise of the best in physical rehabilitation, The Playbook is an on-demand resource for both preventative and post-injury rehabilitation.

The Rehab Process

Rehab Phase

In the early stages of rehab, the focus is on increasing range of motion and strength with a licensed Physical Therapist or Athletic Trainer.

Both, in-person manual therapy and exercise may be used to obtain baseline outcomes.

Rebuild Phase

The mid-phase of rehab is when strength has reached a baseline for daily activities. Often, this is when Traditional Physical Therapy concludes.

TGR offers the next step for optimizing strength in order to return to athletic activities.

Performance Phase

The late phase of rehab is indicated by the return to pre-injury levels.

TGR, at this phase, is designed to keep athletes performing optimally with safe, consistent training.

We’ve integrated data from a rehab and performance perspective to provide you fitness coaching so you can recover sooner, play faster and control injuries.


Training sessions are designed to build a solid foundation for physical performance. Through moderate workout intensities, users can expect to build strength, condition muscles and improve body mechanics.


Gain sessions are designed to optimize peak performance with strength, speed and endurance. These sessions are intended to push athletes slightly beyond their comfort zone, and are only to be used once a baseline of strength is achieved in that training intensities are high.


Athletes must learn to train smart and not just hard. Recovery sessions are designed to manage training effects such as soreness and both mental and physical fatigue. Recovery does not always mean rest but rather training a low intensities for short or long periods. These sessions typically will include cardio exercise with dynamic resistance to increase blood flow. Recovery is essential in preventing overuse and stress-related injuries.
