Here’s how one runner beat his personal records – one belly breath at a time.

I never grow tired of hearing real-life stories about the immediate difference SAT techniques produce. I asked student athlete Dan Santino, from St. Ignatius High School in Chicago, to share his experience with SAT in his own words.   “This fall, I was really excited to run my senior season of cross county. I even set a goal of earning my first All-State honor. The season started off pretty well, but my performance at times seemed to plateau. Maybe it was a combination of muscle soreness in my back and just needing to get to the next level, but I didn’t quite know how to improve. After investigating the SAT process, I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Tom. Looking back, I was skeptical for sure, but was willing to try anything for the sake of improvement. I distinctly remember the muscle-testing results before activation, and then seeing them after. Immediately after activation, I felt loose. There was no tightness, and I felt peaceful after “belly breathing.” The next day we had an invitational race, and I felt the best and was the most focused during that race. I ended up finishing 5th, right behind some of the nation’s best runners, 7 seconds off my personal best. I became a believer as the results were seen immediately for me! As the season progressed with activation and SAT, I gutted out some races and achieved personal records to include Chicago Catholic League Champion, IHSA Regional Champion, and finally I earned my first All-State honor in cross country, placing 24th at the state meet. Activation techniques will be a constant part of my routine from now on.” How is activation a part of your routine? Let us know in the...
