Variant Training Lab was established by Santa Barbara’s Top Physical Therapist Dr. Maury Hayashida, clinical motor behaviorist, researcher and adjunct professor who developed the proprietary “Test, Treat, Train™” Variant Experience, which integrates a roadmap to test mobility and strength capabilities, treat injuries and performance needs, and train to optimize movement, conditioning and reach specific goals for individuals. “Test, Treat, Train™” VTL will ‘test’ (and interpret), healthcare (physical therapy) will ‘treat’ and the fitness industry will ‘train’. Then we will Repeat the process. Why? Because there is no substitute for measurement. Human movement is a part of everything we do in life. The quality and performance level of our lives is largely based on how well and how adept we are at moving well. Variant Training Lab was founded upon a “Test, Treat, Train™” philosophy of human movement. Like most things in life, we can only truly know what we measure. Read More from Edhat >>
