Doug Fioranelli, MA
CSCS, RKC II

In the summer of 2008, I accomplished my lifelong dream by opening: RISE ABOVE PERFORMANCE TRAINING. Mentally and physically pushing my body to the limit has always been a major part of my life. I was a promising high school athlete with dreams of playing college soccer. Unfortunately, I was forced to give it all up due to multiple injuries sustained on the field resulting in a series of complicated surgeries. Unwilling to abandon my dreams entirely, I shifted my focus towards helping others achieve their goals. I thought if I could understand what had happened to me and how to overcome it, I could train other athletes to reach their maximum potential while reducing their risk for injury through proper strength training and conditioning.

In college I spent much of my time in the Exercise Physiology Laboratory conducting research on different effects various training equipment has on muscle activation, strength and endurance. I hold a Master's degree in Kinesiology with a concentration in Exercise Science from San Francisco State University. My Master's thesis, "The Influence of Bar Diameter on Neuromuscular Strength and Activation: Inferences from and Isometric Unilateral Bench Press," was published in the "Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research."

With over 10 years of experience in athletic rehabilitation and strength training, I have helped coach many clients from Jr. High to Olympic and Professional athletes at all levels. My Certifications Include:
