Dr. Todd G. Goldbeck


Xcel always has a primary focus on injury-prevention, no matter what the age of individual or group is being trained. Being a Doctor of Physical Therapy, Todd structures all workouts to ensure that the body is safe performing all movements before progressing. This is especially important in adolescent athletes, where it could be detrimental to a young athlete's growth if movements are too complex or too much external weight is used too early. It is Xcel's philosophy that athletes and indidividuals of all ages must first be able to control their own body weight through all types of movements, before moving on to advanced activities such as weight lifting. However, if taught properly, and performed in the correct progression, kids can make a smooth and natural transition to incorporating external forces (weights and other devices) to their movements when the time is right and their bodies are ready.
