NAKOA coaches are working with Pacific Ridge athletes to incorporate strength, conditioning, speed and agility into the school's PE classes. CARLSBAD – In December, Carlsbad resident and Pacific Ridge School sophomore Kai Kelly was playing for his club lacrosse team when his hip suddenly tightened up during a game. "I could tell right away something wasn't right," he said. Kelly and his family turned to Carlsbad's NAKOA Fitness and Physical Therapy for help and he soon started an extensive rehab program for what turned out to be a labral tear in his hip.

In the sport of skateboarding, Ryan has proven himself not only to be one of the best in the world but one of the best of all time. Ryan won gold medals in the 2003, 2008 and 2010 X games. He won silver medals in 2006 and 2012 and took the bronze in

Their members shuttle in and out exchanging glances or the occasional wave or hello and then quickly put their headphones on and commence to run through the latest workout that they saw in their men’s or women’s health magazine. For most gym goers who identify with this experience, performance training is considered more of a chore or a due diligence requirement than it is a time to go about achieving goals, preparing for competition or developing

Since Track & Field holds a very nostalgic, special place in my heart, I am going to be educating through a series of excerpts from an imaginary letter to my high school self (I know that sounds weird, bare with me). Yo buddy, It’s YOU from the future. Since you weren't good enough to actually BECOME a pro athlete, you are doing the next best thing and TRAINING them. That means you NOW know how AWESOME Coach Herzog and Coach Barry were for our Track team, but how many individual things YOU

The New Year rolls around every year and suddenly there is a mad dash to set up all our goals for the year and fitness is often on many people’s list. Many people experience weight gain over the winter time often correlating to the holidays, vacations, and a bit of overindulgence in general. So weight loss become a popular topic in the New Year.
