Denver’s Premier Sports Performance Lab
Our name says it all…The FAST Lab. We help you get FAST! Through our team’s combined 100+ years of experience, we’ve delivered proven results for the athletes we’ve trained, and for the athletes we’ve treated for pain and performance-limiting issues.
We specialize in training Endurance Sports Athletes (triathletes, cyclists, runners); and Youth who play everything from soccer to football to lacrosse to volleyball to baseball to track and field. (But we also love working with weekend warriors, gym rats, skiers, and golfers, too!)
Our knowledge of sports doesn’t come from a textbook. Everyone on our team has participated in a variety of athletic events, from entry level to elite competitions. At The FAST Lab, we understand what it takes to maximize your untapped athletic potential!
Our Philosophy is Simple
1. All of us have issues!
2. Every athlete has all of the necessary physical components to become faster, stronger, better. Unfortunately, we are limited by our issues.
3. Once our issues are identified and conquered, there are no obstacles toward becoming a faster, stronger, and better athlete.
Our Results Speak for Themselves
The FAST Lab opened 10 years ago with the primary objective of providing athletes with a complete “performance team” to ensure they reach their performance potential and become faster, stronger, better athletes. We combine expertise, science, and innovation to create proven methods that help athletes move better and train smarter. Fast forward 10 years, and we continue to get better at what we do to make you better at what you do.

Even the best athletes have issues such as faulty movement patterns either by direct causes such as injury, or by indirect causes such as muscle imbalances, structural issues, fatigue, or improper training techniques.
Most athletes with dysfunctional movement patterns are completely unaware they are no longer using their muscles properly. They may, however, notice that they are experiencing pain, increased injuries, prolonged muscle soreness, muscle fatigue and ultimately, performance limitations.
Many traditional physical assessments and training programs fail to identify the underlying factors which can limit athletic performance. Even the latest training concepts sometimes fail to address structural asymmetries, muscle imbalances, and dynamic movement dysfunctions – which is why we created The FAST Lab.
As athletes ourselves, we knew there was a better way to address our limitations; the key was to accurately identify not only the limitations, but more importantly the underlying causes of the problems or limitations. The cause is what needs correcting.
At The FAST Lab, this is what we do better than anyone–identify the underlying cause, design a plan, and conquer the problem.
Everything we do is based upon this philosophy. From our Youth Speed and Agility Division to our Endurance Athlete Division, and from our Performance Integration Programs to our Physical Therapy and Sports Massage, everything we do is based upon the fundamental concept of doing what we do best: Identify, Design, and Conquer to make you a Faster, Stronger, Better Athlete!
