Western New England to Continue Partnership with Continuum Performance Center in 2017-18

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (August 7, 2017) – The Western New England University Department of Athletics has announced that it will continue its unique partnership with Continuum Performance Center during the 2017-18 academic year.

Based in nearby East Longmeadow, Mass., Continuum Performance Center (CPC) began providing strength and conditioning services to Western New England's varsity teams and its student-athletes in the fall of 2014.

"Now entering our fourth academic year as the proud providers of strength and conditioning services to the University, we strongly believe that our impact is felt across all sports and graduating classes" CPC Managing Member/Performance Coach Geoff Sullivan said. "Students are immersed in the unique training style from their first days on campus as a varsity athlete," he continued.

CPC-Edge is an industry leader in providing quality fitness programs focused on movement while delivering quantifiable results. The program emphasizes individual goals and needs. As a whole, each team is provided with unique programming and the coaching necessary to carry out these measures, effectively linking individual player's contributions to the overall strength of their team.

"CPC-EDGE's vertically integrated staff model provides a superior strength and conditioning experience for the athletes and is a quality investment for the Western New England Athletic Department," Sullivan described.

CPC's staff model includes NSCA-CSCS Certified Coaches, Certified Athletic Trainers, an IRONMAN Certified Coach, a Doctor of Physical Therapy, former collegiate athletes and strength and conditioning coaching experience at the NCAA Division I, II & III levels.

Western New England's student-athletes are analyzed through numerous sets of lenses representing a range of training backgrounds to ensure that the individual athlete receives a highly personalized training program.  This approach facilitates the very best contribution from all individual athletes for each team.

"As Western New England and the success of its student-athletes continues to grow, CPC will evolve with them," Sullivan concluded. "We will continue to expand the boundaries of education, certification and training practices in order to provide the most dynamic and varied training staff to all of our athletes. It is our mission and encapsulated in our promise to Western New England."

Western New England's continued partnership with CPC is in support of several key Strategic Directions that were laid out in the Athletic Department's recent self-study that focused on advancing the athletic program and identifying new opportunities to enhance the quality of the student-athlete experience.

"We are very excited to partner with CPC to deliver high quality training services to our student-athletes," said Director of Athletics Joe Sassi. "In this day and age, sport science and analytics have come to the fore front and we are learning more and more about student-athlete conditioning, performance and safety. We want to continue to be a leader in Division III athletics by assuring that our student-athletes have a team of experts in these emerging areas who are accessible to them. Coupled with our own outstanding sports medicine team and coaching staff, they represent a team of qualified professionals focused on supporting our student-athletes in achieving their goals."
