"Without a strong and balanced foundation, overuse injuries are destined to impede your progress. My goal is to help clients increase their movement integrity and work capacity. By combing a focus on core strength and bilateral stability with proper programming and implementation, I create resilient athletes who are able to manage life and training stresses."
Trainer - Patrick Morris
Patrick started with Podium Sports Medicine as our Performance Lab Technician at Provision Health & Wellness. He has continued to work in the Performance Lab and is excited to expand his role with Podium by offering personal training as well as online programming.
Patrick graduated from the University of Tennessee in 2014 with a double major in Kinesiology and Psychology. He is an ACSM Certified personal trainer with level 1 Functional Movement Screen and FMT Basic and Performance credentials. He has trained a wide variety of clients in commercial gyms as well as private studios over the past three years. Patrick has focused his continuing education on endurance athletes and corrective exercise. When he's not working Patrick enjoys running, cycling, lifting and playing the drums. Keep an eye out for him in Knoxville's Urban Wilderness.
Our facility is equipped to handle the needs of most athletes. Fancy machines and 10,000 sq. ft. gyms are not necessary to improve overall fitness and functionality. We prescribe detailed and focused programs based on each clients needs. TRX straps, kettlebells, dumbbells and bands give us more than enough to work with depending on your goals.
Working at Podium allows Patrick to offer a different level of service that is rarely available at gyms or studios. The use of ultrasound allows clients to keep a close eye on their body composition with a quick non invasive scan. The recovery room gives clients the opportunity to take advantage of the Normatec compression boots or the Marc Pro Estim which can help relieve tension in the neck or low back while also improving recovery. Most importantly Patrick works closely with Dr. Sprouse to help clients with injuries and tracking bloodwork yearly or quarterly.
