A Special Thanks

Thanks to all for supporting CasePerformance during 2011. It was a great year for everyone involved in the process. I’d personally like to thank the key members of the CasePerformance team who have helped to make this site possible: Brian Putchio, Justin Andrews, Phil Stevens, Rob “Fortress” Fortney, Jon Mike, Brad Kruse & Patrick Gokey.

The 2nd group of individuals that I owe a great deal of thanks to includes those who were willing to take time out of their busy schedules to participate in our Interview with the Expert article series. As you can see, the caliber of minds and talent assembled this year was EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE:

Luke Richesson – Physical Preparation Coach for the Jacksonville Jaguars (CLICK HERE)

Ian King – One of the World’s Premier Physical Preparation Coaches with 30+ years of experience training elite athletes (Part I, Part II)

Andrew Rock – Olympic Track Gold Medalist (CLICK HERE)

Teresa Putchio – Owner of numerous bench press records (CLICK HERE)

Scott Hettenbach – Assistant director of strength and conditioning at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (CLICK HERE)

Greg Olsen – Co-founder of PowerBlock (CLICK HERE)

Gray Cook- Highly Noted Physical Therapist (CLICK HERE)

The 3rd spotlight is shining on a different crowd… I’ve been fortunate enough to have had many great mentors in my life. I owe them a great deal of credit. I am who I am today, due in large part to the knowledge that others have bestowed upon me. In the end, I hope to impact the lives of others the way so many have impacted mine.

The 4rd and most important group that I need to thank is YOU, the readers of CasePerformance. Seeing the large traffic that comes onto CasePerformance daily motivates us to put out the best product possible. Furthermore, our monthly newsletter has expanded considerably. For those who haven’t signed up yet, here is what you’re missing – 3 free ebooks (just for signing up), Insider Interviews with members of the CasePerformance community, event updates as well as general news of note. I do stress that this is a MONTHLY newsletter … I personally can’t stand sites that seemingly fill your email inbox up with newsletters every other day!!!

The entire team has worked hard to bring you the latest in human performance research as well as practical training advice. We take great pride in providing you with an advertisement free training website that does not require any membership fees. However, there are costs associated with running the site. This includes domain fees, website maintenance costs as well as subscriptions to the many scientific journals that we use in bringing you the latest research in human performance. If you like this site and would like to show your appreciation for what we have to offer, we humbly accept donations .

And for the curious minds out there, here’s a sneak peak on what’s on tap for us here at CasePerformance in the New Year…

Interviews with …

  • World Champion Dragon Boat Racer Tom Weitz

Articles examining….

  • Tribuslus terrestries: Testosterone Booster or Marketing Hype?
  • Exploring the Muscle Pump Amino Acids
  • And More!

That sums up the news here at CasePerformance for the 2011 year. Wishing you endless PR’s in 2012!

Train Smart, Train Hard & Leave the Excuses to Someone Else!

Closing thoughts …

2011 has been a great year for everyone in the CasePerformance family. Most notably we’ve seen those we’ve worked with set new PR’s, lose weight and/or transform themselves into dynamic, well oiled machines!

My best,

Sean Casey
