Making a Star

<br> <P>We'll show you some high tech ways trainers are engineering a better athlete.<br></P>

THE PROS ARE WORKING SO HARD TO ENGINEER A BETTER ATHLETE-ONE WHO RUNS FASTER, THROWS FARTHER AND IS HIT WITH FEWER INJURIES.  
 TONIGHT'S HEALTHCAST FOCUSES ON THE ENGINEERING OF A MULTI- MILLION DOLLAR ATHLETE.
WHAT WAS ONCE JUST SCI-FI, IS TURNING YOUNG COMPETITORS INTO BETTER, STRONGER, FASTER ATHLETES.(Hard football hit)
AND ALTHOUGH MANY STRIVE FOR IT-FEW MAKE IT TO THIS LEVEL-
DEVIN GODA WANTS TO BE ONE OF THEM. 
"That's definitely my top priority and dream- to make it to the NFL." ODA'S TIME IN THE FORTY YARD DASH HAS DROPPED- FROM FOUR-POINT SEVEN-FIVE SECONDS- TO FOUR-POINT THREE-EIGHT. 
THAT FRACTION OF A SECOND SAVED PUTS HIM ON PAR WITH THE BEST WIDE RECEIVERS IN THE GAME.  HOW DID HE DO IT? BY IMPROVING ONE STEP... ONE MOVEMENT AT A TIME.
RON DEANGELO IS AN EXPERT IN SPORTS BIOMECHANICS.
DEANGELO AND HIS COLLEAGUES TRAIN ATHLETES TO MOVE IN THE MOST EFFICIENT WAY POSSIBLE. SPECIALIZED COMPUTER SOFTWARE ANALYZES PERFORMANCE.
THE SAME BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY IS ALSO KEEPING THE PROS ON THE FIELD LONGER-WITH FEWER INJURIES.
THE ATLANTA FALCONS-- A HIGH PERFORMANCE TEAM WITH ONE OF THE LOWEST INJURY RATES IN THE NFL...  NEVER UNDERESTIMATE THE POWER OF MOTION.
 SEVERAL TIMES A YEAR, EVERY FALCONS PLAYER UNDERGOES FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREENING.   SEVEN SPECIALIZED TESTS, SCORED ZERO TO THREE, IDENTIFY LIMITATIONS IN STRENGTH AND MOTION FROM LEFT TO RIGHT, HEAD TO  TOE-- BEFORE THEY CAUSE INJURIES.
"If you do have an asymmetry, if you do have a restriction that's going to eventually break down."
TO PREVENT THAT BREAKDOWN, CUSTOMIZED THERAPIES TARGET EACH PLAYER'S UNIQUE RISK FACTORS. THE HEALTHY MOVEMENT SCORE BECOMES A BENCHMARK FOR HEALING. "We want our players to be healthy and durable and be able to contribute to our success through the course of the whole season."
BETTER MECHANICS, SHARPER SCIENCE AND BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY FAST-TRACKING PLAYERS TO THEIR DREAMS.
"I'm going to turn some heads."
 MOTION ANALYSIS ISN'T JUST FOR PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES.  
 MOVEMENT SCREENING IS NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINERS ALL OVER THE COUNTRY, TO ALLOW WEEKEND WARRIORS AND FITNESS ENTHUSIASTS TO TEST THEIR OWN EFFICIENCY OF MOTION, AND IMPROVE PERFORMANCE.
