Steve Conca is an incredible asset to our sporting community. I worked with Steve for several years and have sent a wide variety of patients to him, from competitive athletes to adult patients looking for weight loss and fitness. We have long been in need of a way to transition athletes from rehab to the real world of their sport. Injured athletes recover very well with the help of traditional physical therapy, but they frequently need a higher level of training/coaching in order to effectively return to their sport. I have seen dramatic results with patient after patient, using the services of Coach Conca. Many of my referrals have been patients with recurrent overuse-type injuries. These patients often have the same injury year after year. With the help of the Functional Movement Screen, Coach Conca is often able to detect the inefficient movement patterns that seem to be at the root for these recurrent injuries. Most importantly, he is able to correct the underlying movement problem so that the injuries no longer occur. Injury prevention is another key component of Coach Conca’s programming. Female athletes, for example, who are at higher risk for ACL injury, can reduce their risk by undergoing the sport-specific strength and flexibility training. Whether you are a middle school or high school athlete, a professional athlete, or simply an avid exerciser wanting to improve your performance and decrease your injury risk, I strongly recommend Steve Conca.

Mike Hilts MD, Piedmont Orthopedics–

I have worked with Mr. Steve Conca for the past 10 years and have found his services invaluable to my patients. I have a very busy sports medicine practice and utilized Steve?s expertise to help get my athletes back on the field safely and keep my adult patients strong and fit. He worked closely with my physical therapy staff to take over where they left off, overseeing sport performance and fitness programs. His clients were very pleased with his care. I believe that his approach to fitness and athletic performance as well as injury prevention is integral to a well rounded sports medicine program and strength and conditioning program. I would highly recommend his services.

Robert Wainer MD, Murphy Wainer Orthopedics–

I am extremely pleased to give my full personal and professional endorsement to the Steve Conca, owner of Conca Sport & Fitness. I have had opportunities to work in professional athletics as well as in the foremost training facilities in this country including the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. I can say without reservation that the work, dedication, and philosophy used by Coach Conca is among the best I have seen when it comes to a full service holistic approach to personal training and strength & conditioning. I have had the opportunity to work with Steve Conca with both teams and individual athletes, and I am always pleased with the results. I recently published the book, “Athletic Body in Balance”, and not only does Steve adhere to the philosophy and technology put forth in the book, I used Steve’s programs as a resource to help develop the philosophy and refine the exercises published in my book. This guy gets the job done!
