My name is Troy Dos Santos and I’m a former professional track and field athlete at the National and International level. I have been working with The System for about 10 months to improve my condition (I was diagnosed with Concussion Syndrome) and eliminate my injuries with hopes of competing again at a high level.
I work as an Elite Performance Enhancement Specialist in which I coach and teach athletes about the fundamentals of speed training. I am still currently ranked among Canada’s top 20 for 50 meters, 60 meters, and 100 meters over the past decade and my best performance for 100 meters is 10.26 seconds. I’m also the Canada Games 100 meter and 4×100 meter record holder since 1997.
A friend of mine, who was once one of the nation’s top squash players, referred me to Yusuf. Seeing his physical condition improve over a short period of time really interested me into working with The System to help me resolve these issues, which I have lived with for over a decade. I was impressed with the attention to detail approach throughout the assessment and the knowledge received during the session to help educate me on how to prevent future injuries.
My condition has improved significantly working with The System. The symptoms from Concussion Syndrome have reduced a lot, which in turn has allowed me to train again at a level required for me to achieve my personal goals. The fundamentals taught to me by Yusuf, have made me understand the necessary steps and precautions to be taken in order to decrease my injury potential. I am much stronger, my range of motion has improved, and I’m able to train without fear of residual issues arising after an intense training session.
I would recommend Yusuf to all athletes because these fundamentals are not readily available or taught by known coaches or therapists within the field. These techniques I feel are an asset to any athlete wishing to achieve a very high level of performance within their respective discipline. It’s one thing to perform at a high level but another to actually perform these athletic abilities consistently without fear of injury or reprisal.
