Happy almost-Summer! Memorial Day is around the corner and this glorious 3-day weekend marks the beginning of summer on our calendar at NAKOA. That means more outdoor gatherings with friends and family and an abundance of delicious food and drink. We all love a good barbecue: good vibes, good friends, and of course, good eats.

Who doesn't love a day of celebration with friends and family?! Memorial Day is just around the corner and with it, a great opportunity for a beach day, BBQ, and lots of quality time with friends and family. In our busy world, it's easy to get caught up in the day to day. While it's great to be present and live in the moment, it's times like these that it's important for us to also remember and honor the past.

As a strength and conditioning coach, I have had the opportunity to work with some extremely gifted athletes. One of the most impressive athletes that I have had the pleasure of working with is Ryan Sheckler. 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

Even the SOUND of skating seems to be quite pleasing to the ears.  (check out our boy Tom Schaar winning the recent Vans Park Series Event at the 2017 Australian Open) What few fans of skating realize, however, is the BRUTAL TOLL it takes on their bodies.  From concussions, broken bones, soft tissue injuries and skin lacerations, these stereotyped “skate rats” are much

How many times have you fought for a parking spot to hike Torrey Pines or conquered Mt. Woodsen Trail for the perfect Instagram photo on top of Potato Chip Rock?

It’s time to give some credit to some of San Diego County’s lesser-known hikes so next weekend try exploring one of these hidden gems. Cedar Creek Falls (Devil’s Punchbowl) Distance: 6mi Okay, maybe you have heard of this one BUT there’s

Spring is finally here and summer is just around the corner. It is that time of year we all want to take care of our bodies to look, feel, and perform at our best. No matter what your goals are, it is important that we are fueling our bodies properly so it can function optimally. That means eating plenty of good fat, protein, fruits and vegetables. This is the time where a TON of produce comes in season and our local farmers markets are flourishing with beautiful bright colored locally

Golf is a highly skillful and patient sport, yet requires a high demand on the athlete’s body. A majority of golfers, from weekend warriors to professional, have experienced some form of back pain. Due to the explosive rotational movement of the golf swing, there is a significant amount of stress placed on the body, particularly the spine. Golfers also spend a considerable amount of time in a forward bent position while putting, adding stress to the back. Combine all of the stress along with hundreds of repetitive motions, and it

Golf is a sport that requires control, flexibility, power, feel- and let’s be honest- some luck is always nice!  While I can’t help you out when it comes to luck, I can give you a few techniques and explanations for how to improve your physical attributes and skill set to give you the best chance of success moving forward.   Before beginning any program, it is best to make sure you are cleared for exercise with no pre-existing conditions or injuries that could lead to pain or further injury.  After being

Lacrosse is a rapidly growing, fast-paced sport that is physical in nature with both player-to-player contact and stick-to-player contact. Lacrosse is a sport that challenges the entire body and requires a great amount of sprinting, cutting, agility, and hand-eye coordination.
