Competitive Edge Performance


CEP works with Care Coalition in helping US Military Special Forces wounded warriors get back to top form....from wheelchair to first Tri.

I would like to give thanks where it's due. I personally want to thank The Care Coalition (Tony, Hector) and Jason at CEP for helping me over the past few years recovering from my injury.

The Care Coalition provides a much needed voice and advocacy for SOF wounded warriors, and I appreciate all the help in the past. And thanks Jason for continuing to provide me with physical therapy in way that benefits the SOF/ Warrior. I can't say enough about how much Jason (PT) and Raph's (S&C coach at 1441) facility has to offer.

Attached is a pic from my 1st triathlon. I didn't break any records, but given my past injury I consider my race successful. Thanks again all.

I may never break any records, but I believe Bruce Lee said it best, " Life is a never ending strive for perfection" .

Dear Hap, Jason & Competitive Edge Staff:

I wanted to wish you and your staff a very Happy New Year and thank you for keeping my dream alive!

As I'm sure you are aware, I received a verbal commitment from the University of Denver to compete on their 2011 Pioneer Gymnastics Team on Thursday, December 3, 2009. I had been working extremely hard for thirteen years, training to get to the collegiate level in my gymnastics. Unfortunately, during a competition on Friday, December 11, 2009, I tore my ACL and was devastated because I thought my dreams to compete in college would never become a reality.

After my surgery on December 16th, you and your staff were incredible about ensuring I was able to begin working with your wonderful team to get back to my pre-injury condition and competition performance. Everyone was extremely helpful in coordinating with my hectic school and gymnastics schedule. I want to thank you for doing such an incredible job and allowing me to get back to my pre-injury status as quickly as possible.

I know that many people are quick to complain when something happens that they don't like, but I wanted to take the time to thank you for all your help and encouragement!

Please see my pictures attached which shows me signing my National Letter of Intent to attend and complete on the Denver University Gymnastics Team in 2011. I would not have been possible without your help. You are your staff were great and I so much appreciate everything!

I wish you and your staff all the success that you have given to me!

Hi, Jason,

With 3 months to prepare for the 2010 Southern Region Oireachtas (an annual Irish Dance Competition), my 15 year daughter tore a ligament in her left ankle while at dance class. Not comprehending the magnitude of the upcoming competition, the pediatric orthopedist would not recommend physical therapy; thus, we were left to our own devices. Six weeks passed by, and my daughter could walk but was unable to dance.

The Oireachtas looked unattainable; however, we were not ready to throw the towel in yet. I went online desperately seeking help and found Competitive Edge. I spoke to Jason, and he understood our dilemma. In 3 weeks, Jason not only got my daughter jumping and leaping on her injured ankle, but he also whipped her into shape. At the 2010 Southern Region Oireachtas, Emily came in 31st place out of 110 fifteen year old female dancers AND qualified for the 2011 North American Irish Dance Championships.


Last Spring my father, Nat Lichter and I came to you with a task we thought to be impossible; enabling my wheelchair-bound, 79 year old father, with congestive heart failure to walk down the aisle at my daughter Jackie's wedding. We wanted it to be a surprise to her and the rest of our family. With your efforts and encouragement my Dad not only walked down the aisle, he also was able to dance with Jackie, (see the attached pictures).

Jason, I wanted to let you know just how much your work is appreciated. I think you can tell by the expression on their faces, you can't put a price on that happiness.

With only 8 weeks remaining before the start of the Girls Florida State Cup Soccer Playoffs, our daughter tore her left hamstring. Things seemed pretty dismal until we were directed to Competitive Edge. From the very first visit, our spirits were lifted, especially our daughters. The programs at Competitive Edge are designed with the athlete in mind. The goal is to get them back as quickly and as safely as possible by focusing on exercises that are injury and sport specific, yet also help prevent the injury from occurring again. As parents of a child who is serious about competition, Competitive Edge was the absolute best choice for our daughter.

Her experience and background make her a perfect fit for all skill and age levels. No matter what your goals are, Claudia will help you attain them. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to take their level of fitness and overall health to the next level.

As a lifelong couch potato, I had finally mustered the energy and will to get off my bum and train for my first 5K and my first Sprint Triathlon. But just a week after finishing the tri, my IT band started giving me problems and I wasn't able to run for more than about 4 minutes without serious pain. I was mad. I'd finally found a great cardiovascular activity that I loved and was sticking with, but I thought my running days were finished. I contacted Claudia because I knew she shared a similar passion for running as I, and because I trusted her expertise and opinion.

After a few sessions, I noticed a big difference, and after we finished the whole program, I was nearly 100%. Now, I continue to work on the problem areas she found, to maintain the program she instituted, and to use the tools she taught me. I am signed up for my next Sprint Triathlon and can't wait to run across the finish line.

Claudia Mccoy is the standard by which any trainer should be measured. She has expertise in exercise, nutrition and her background in physical therapy in Germany. She has extensive knowledge of the human body. She has the ability to understand her client's needs and demonstrate exercises with knowledge and depth of understanding, not only in execution but also application of these movements and how they are best suited to the individual. Most importantly she is extremely motivating and encouraging.

Although I had always been athletic over the years through exercise, running and soccer, I found myself approaching 'mid-life' with extra weight, low energy and minimal fitness. After some weight loss success, I decided I needed to do something to improve my fitness and build muscle tone. I had known Claudia for a number of years through participation in local soccer leagues and knew she would be the perfect trainer to get me back on the right track. I joined a fitness center and scheduled my personal training sessions with Claudia. We went over a diet, cardio, weight lifting and stretching plan. She was able to recommend vitamin and nutrition sources for a comprehensive program.

Claudia is passionate about fitness and it shows through the energy and enthusiasm she brings to every session. Her easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. She makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! She has taught me how to power groups of muscles, rather than training a series of isolated large muscles. Claudia also places a high value on correct form with each exercise. She has taught me the correct way to use the equipment at my gym and how to continue to improve my fitness once my sessions with her are finished. She has motivated me to push past my perceived limits to get results. The results were effective almost immediately. I have incredible energy, my core strength and flexibility have improved immensely and I've got great new muscle tone and definition. I am now able to motivate myself and enjoy the time I spend working out. My endurance is improved and I recently participated in 5k races for the first time. My soccer teammates are impressed with my new fitness, speed and body control.

I recommend Claudia McCoy as a Personal Trainer for any goal you want to achieve, whether it is weight loss, muscle tone or total fitness. I have never felt so good about myself and I owe it all to Claudia's knowledge and enthusiasm. She is always the first one to say I have done a great job. I look forward to continued health and fitness as well as working with Claudia into the future.

Diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease over 10 years ago, having three shoulder surgeries in seven months and completing 42 radiation treatments for prostate cancer, my husband was down and out. His spirit was gone, he had no energy and was happy to stay home, sleeping most of the time. Finding Competitive Edge proved to be his saving grace. From the first day, Fred has shown excitement and enthusiasm. He looks forward to each visit and with your encouragement, works out in between, using exercises specific to his needs considering his abilities. His balance has improved measurably, he is able to do simple projects at home as well as chip and putt, and we are convinced that he will be playing a round of golf soon. We have even gone to Disney World, where he walked all of Epcot in one day. Competitive Edge is not just for athletes, it is for anyone who wants to have an active and fulfilling life and I thank you for giving my husband back his.
