DVD Fitness is now available. Here is something new in training, which promises to make a big impact on your running and performance in virtually any sport. Joe Martin is a Licensed Physical Therapist who specializes in performance enhancement and sports injury rehabilitation. He offers a no-nonsense approach to aspects of training that are often neglected. Every runner knows she or he must improve flexibility, improve performance, and add to overall musculoskeletal mobility—and improve/shorten recovery time. But how can they do so? Here now, all runners should check out the Run-Better-Longer Series at

These innovative training DVD’s can literally improve your training methods, and help you set priorities to improve running and overall performance. Perhaps most importantly, these sessions can help everyone at every level of training and fitness stay injury free. This obviously insures training progress and performance improvements are not interrupted by those serious or even nagging injuries.

For example, DVD Fitness has a new and unique DVD being released in mid December entitled, “Improving Your Times with Integrative Interval Training.” And speaking of releases, Joe Martin’s company will be releasing many DVD’s in the next few months that will help athletes in many different sports—especially foot impact sports—improve training methods and overall strength and flexibility.

The DVD Fitness Program is an avenue that brings the value of the personal physical therapist right into your own home, right to your own running log. Even the most hardened long-time runner can benefit from this approach, applying the tough lessons of hundreds of others to their source of injury prevention. This is the key--train to the fullest, sensibly and injury free.

Who is Joe Martin
Mr. Martin hosts a television show in Upstate new York called “TheraPTv”. He is reaching a wider and wider audience with his common-sense approach, using the very latest information in Sports Medicine. These are targeted to impact athletes, especially as it relates to how twisting, turning, and impact affect the muscles and bones and connective tissue that keep athletes running. The goal--keeping athletes healthy, and keeping runners on the roads, track, and trails.

Martin is ahead of the curve on the very latest sports medicine, and has helped hundreds of athletes overcome injuries and get back to peak performance. Many have gained so much that they not only returned to form, but took their performances to a much higher level. All this is possible by simply applying the advice of this innovative training professional.

Joe Martin is a Licensed Physical Therapist specializing in performance enhancement, rehabilitation, and injury prevention. He is only a few credits away form his Doctorate at Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York. His goal is to educate the active public about select injuries and conditions, especially those caused by high impact and repetition. He offers a no-nonsense approach and advice that yields real solutions.

Injuries—Predictably Unpredictable
As the training miles add up all too often the injuries mount also. Joe Martin has learned that many of these injuries are predictable, and therefore preventable. Runners are a hard bunch, and some don’t adapt well to change. Unfortunately, that means that many of them keep on doing the same things over and over and over. In all too many cases, this routine can be detrimental to health and performance, and become a serious hindrance to peak performance. Elite athletes know this, and they have access to physical therapists constantly in order to get it all right—personally applied. The have terrific advice on shoe fit and type, running form, inserts to lessen impact, and much more. With this DVD Fitness program, you too have access to this advice.

Martin takes a unique, fresh look at why injuries occur, and the means to prevent them. After evaluating hundreds of cases where he has treated injured runners, he has learned from their collective problems and put the solutions to work for you in each and every video.

Run Better Longer
The three DVD Run Better Longer set is especially effective for runners: “Impact One”, “Impact Two”, and “Flexibility” will provide you with the information and advice you need to run injury free. And there is a companion (free extra DVD) that will be sent for added help—“Five Things a Runner Must Do”.
These are now available, special for the holidays. Just go to the Website or call (315) 525-6860 for additional information.

When you visit the Website, you will also find some surprises, such as the 6-DVD series for youthful athletes he has named “Kid Ballistics”, a comprehensive sports preparation series which is co-hosted by Martin’s 9-year-old son J.T. Martin. JT embodies the same passion for sports, performance, and health as his Dad. These videos offer valuable information, and also bring inspiration and energy to all athletes.

Additionally, runners and athletes can shop for holiday gifts for everyone in the family—whether they are runners, or have a passion for ice skating, basketball, home exercise, curling or other sports, DVD Fitness will be releasing many DVD’s each month.

Gift Certificates Available
If you want to give a gift and you’re not sure which to buy, DVD Fitness offers gift certificates. To make this really hassle free, you can purchase a gift certificate and have it “delivered” via e-mail. For the athlete who has everything—especially those who suffer from sports related injuries—this can be a very good thing.

Here is another unique gift idea or perhaps a present for yourself as you seek that optimum, injury free performance on the roads. Joe Martin offers VIP Consults, an actual scheduled 30-minute session where you can have a one-on-one opportunity with Joe where you can ask any question about performance and injury, and seek advice on anything from training methods to heel strike, to the best running shoes for your body type and foot fall. These sessions are geared to provide specific, individualized training advice and expert information on injuries—especially those repeat problems that keep coming back time after time. These sessions are high impact, excuse the pun.

The Cutting Edge—Worthwhile for Your Training
Join the hundreds of athletes taking advantage of these innovative ideas and techniques. Don’t let the detrimental effects of impact bring your running to a halt. Take advantage of this advice; take advantage of the concept, and run stronger, longer, and injury free.
