ABOUT US


Helping the Complete Athlete / Individual from Rehab to Performance or a Journey of Well Being.
Our goal is to offer seamless transitions from the acute stages of injury until you are ready to return to the field. You will progress from rehabilitation to conditioning programs designed to get you back and beyond, and reduce the incidence of injuries. Opened in July of 2004, servicing hundreds of athletes from Northern New Jersey. This intimate rehab and training center has everything our patients/athlete needs for performance. OPTPI offers a structured program which takes place in a supportive, competitive environment that focuses on athletic and individual self-improvement. The personal attention every client and athlete receives from our qualified staff is unmatched. With a diverse clientele, ranging from middle school students to professional athletes, and to stay at home mothers to competitive weekend warriors, there is something for everyone at OPTPI

The Fundamentals of Movement:
OPTPI greets you with movement everywhere and in everything, in many shapes sizes and forms. From the simple medicine balls, balance discs, and bands to the efficiency of the Keiser Functional Training Systems, effective activities and programs confirm a dedicated mission to improving mobility, flexibility, stability, balance, strength and power. The philosophy is based in part on a system that monitors fundamental movement, thru the Functional Movement Screen & Selective Functional Movement Assessment .By screening these patterns, corrective exercises are developed to target the functional limitations and asymmetries. It is the foundation of our program. Everything that follows will be built off your foundation.

Nutrition Corner

Carbohydrate consumption can alter energy dynamics and disease progression in the body.
All carbohydrates we consume are digested into monosaccharides or simple sugars before they’re absorbed by the body, regardless of whether the food source is a simple sugar cube or a high-fibre, low glycemic index bowl of oatmeal. It’s just that the “healthier carbs” are digested and absorbed much slower while the “non-healthy” carbs are digested very quickly.
* A slower carbohydrate breakdown from lower glycemic carbohydrates is better for satiety, blood sugar, and body composition. These carbohydrates are found in vegetables, fruits, legumes, and whole grains.
* Rapid digestion of simpler, higher-glycemic carbohydrates is beneficial during the pre- and post-workout periods.
The average person’s minimum carbohydrate intake should be 130 grams per day, with a majority coming from vegetables and fruits. Higher amounts of carbohydrates are needed with increased muscle mass and increased physical activity levels. However, excessive carbohydrate consumption will be stored for future use (as fat or glycogen).
Consume at least 25 grams of fibre per day from vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, seeds, and whole grains to ensure optimal health and body composition.
