About Spartan Performance

Welcome to Spartan Performance. In collaboration with MSU SportsMEDICINE and Rehabilitative Medicine, we provide an integrated, holistic approach to the care and training of mid-Michigan athletes through state-of-the-art programs including nutritional assessment and counseling; speed and athletic enhancement; physiological testing; throwing program for baseball and quarterbacks; and education and community outreach. Academically, we are housed in Sports and Cardiovascular Nutrition, a Division of MSU Radiology within the College of Osteopathic Medicine. This is truly a one-of-a-kind experience for the athlete. Tested, trained, energized - like a D1 athlete.
