David Stride in the best all-round sport performance professional in Kamloops, BC. He has helped me several times over the course of my career with steady conduct, top of the line equipment and scientific methods. Often going above and beyond in his operation.

How Does it Work? 

All of our athletes at Stride Sport & Performance, begin their training with a individual consultation. After a complete assessment of each athlete's unique needs and goals, we develop the most influential and beneficial training program possible. 


Step 1: The Assessment

         Each athlete assessment may include: 

 • Joint Mobility                                      • Power

  Joint Stability                                     • Strength

                        Balance                                              Speed
