Ryan Denihan – Athletic Trainer
Ryan Denihan has a passion for optimizing young athlete’s potentials and helping them excel at the sport they love. For over 14 years, Ryan has been involved in coaching high school athletes. His belief is that an athlete should strengthen the muscles specific to the sport, which in turn limits potential injury and maximizes the athlete’s performance. In his experience, injuries generally come from a lack of strength in key areas. To help minimize potential injury, Ryan develops a sound foundation focusing on efficient movement to create a faster, stronger and more explosive player.
Ryan started his love of sports as a kid growing up in the Midwest where he lettered in football, basketball and track. When he moved to California in high school, he also discovered a love for Volleyball and after two years of playing was a valued player achieving All-Area/County/CIF and a Fab 50 recruit. Ryan then continued his volleyball career at California State University, Northridge, where, despite being one of the smallest middle blockers in the country, he continued to excel. Ryan has also played with and against every member of the USA Gold Medal Olympic Volleyball Team. Ryan acknowledges that during his time at California State University, Northridge, he realized that sport specific training was vital to optimal performance. It is this passion combined with his experiences and education that make him a vital part of the CPC team. In his free time, Ryan and his lovely wife, Amy, enjoy spending time with their first son, Logan. To learn more about training and CPC’s proprietary performance program please give us a call.
I have needed to see Dr. Chirs for a variety of issues that have developed during Marathon/Ironman training. Dr. Chris does an amazing job at figuring out the root cause of the issue to treat it, rather than just treating the symptoms. He had saved a few races for me! You know you found someone good when you can barely walk in one day, are are walking almost 100% normal the very next day!
