Robert Forster Working With Gold Medalists

Dr. Bruce Hensel interviews Robert Forster about training and rehabilitating Olympic stars Kim Rhode and Allyson Felix. This video was shot before they both won gold in London.

n 1980, Robert Forster started his physical therapy business with a single client who would be later known throughout the world for her Olympic gold medal achievements – Florence Griffith Joyner. Since then, Forster has been treating injured world-class and recreational athletes by following a 4-phase program of rehabilitation, exercise and diet. The fourth phase involves redeveloping fitness and diet to make you better than you were before.

Working with dozens of Olympic medalists, US Open & Wimbledon champions, NBA superstars and triathlon world record holders, Forster encountered countless ill-advised and erroneous training programs that actually caused injury, and didn’t result in improvement.

Robert Forster, CEO & Founder of Phase IV and Forster Physical Therapy has teamed with Herbalife to create a fitness program called Herbalife 24Fit

Tired of encountering ill-advised training programs that only cause more injury, Robert created a new approach to physical therapy, which is divided into phases that follow the body’s natural healing and growth patterns. His 30 years experience working with athletes, both recreational and elite is now available on a set of 13 DVDs.
