Who is Activ8?

When Activ8’s founders Tj Moreno and William Meade Jr. met they shared a concern over the amount of preventable injuries they were encountering in their respective fields as an athletic trainer and an emergency room doctor. This observation led them to pursue a new offering in sports performance – a way to maximize performance, prevent injury, and increase longevity.

In 2011 they co-founded Activ8 and the vision became a reality. Their approach was simple yet innovative: create custom programs based on specialized assessments in order to maintain the long term health and safety of athletes. Applying this methodology allowed athletes to efficiently and consistently push their boundaries and break through performance barriers. 

A decade later the Activ8 team is continuing to transform athletes by placing their needs first. The expert team of technicians and specialists on staff  are here to match every client’s passion to become the athletes they envision. The Activ8 team consists of backgrounds in exercise physiology, physical therapy, athletic training, and strength and conditioning ensuring safety and optimal performance in all training curriculums.
