Complex human movement has always fascinated Dr. Mike Kay. For as long as he can remember, he studied the specific ways in which high-level performers competed. Dr. Mike received formal training at Chapman University in Physical Therapy where he earned his doctorate degree. After graduation, he continued to learn from the best until he was ready to create his own principle-based approach for elevating sports performance. During his career, he has worked with athletes at every level, including college, and professionals from MLB, NBA, NFL, PGA/LPGA, NHL, UFC, Olympic Track and Field, and others.
Dr. Mike’s treatment style is dynamic, enabling him to move from clients dealing with complicated chronic pain to a top-level athlete looking to maximize their potential. He continues to work on developing and implementing specific exercise and manual therapies to help alter complex dynamic movements.
I think it is really important to meet people where they are, be that on the table, in the gym, or on the field. Having a principle-based approach makes this very possible. Whether you’re looking for that extra 1% advantage, are in pain, feel stuck or are simply looking for guidance, just reach out. I’m happy to help.”
From a college baseball career came the desire to find a better way to improve athletic performance and resilience. Private Sector training of over 8 years and a Master’s in Science from Sacramento State University helped Richie build the largest college prep and professional athlete off-season training facilities in the Northern California region. The journey to Scottsdale came with the goal of helping more and more athletes, and Helix is where he utilizes his extensive background in exercise physiology and sports science to improve that 1% in others, and positively impact as many athletic futures as possible.
I have always desired to create a training environment that is truly player and results driven with leaders whom my children could look up to. I really believe we have designed that with HELIX. It’s good people achieving great success.”
A lifelong pursuit to achieve optimal physical and mental development in sports led Steven to a collegiate football career. Through that Steven found a passion and love for strength and conditioning. He graduated and completed his internship at Colorado Mesa University with a B.S. in Kinesiology. He then moved home and started his own holistic training business, producing dozens of collegiate and professional athletes over the past five years. Learning from the best in the Valley, Steven continued to build a strong network which led him to his partners at HELIX. Working with athletes of all ages from all sports he has developed a passion for helping people progress in their sport and in life.
In addition to his own clients, Steven has been hired by two area high schools and a club organization as their head strength and conditioning coordinator. He has been a part of four state championships and helped 19 athletes earn scholarships and sign national letters of intent.
When you look at the elite team, and how special our facility is, then study the system we’ve built based on our unique backgrounds, we couldn’t be more excited about the future. We care about movement and how efficiently our clients can perform that movement. We look at things through a different lens and really make sure we are taking a holistic approach that is unmatched.”
Navigating the path to maintaining health and achieving peak performance has been a goal and a passion for Mike. He worked as a strength coach in the private and collegiate sector, building experience to improve the performance of athletes in all sports. He attended Simmons University in Boston, MA to receive a Doctorate in Physical Therapy, and attended an internship at IFAST physical therapy in order to learn how to improve one’s health while making sure performance doesn’t suffer at the same time.
Campo has experience walking this tight rope between health and performance with athletes from the MLB, NFL, NBA, MLS, USA youth national teams, and D1 collegiate programs, as well as general population clients with complicated presentations and post-surgical situations.
My experience has been invaluable to help understand each individual situation and to guide the client in the right direction at the right time.”
Born and raised in the Valley, Danny has been around some of the finest players and minds within the game of baseball. Throughout his collegiate career, he attended Mesa Community College where he helped capture Mesa’s first National Championship title in 2014. After departing from MCC, he landed in Southern California at The Masters University where he was a part of back-to-back NAIA World Series appearances in 2016 and 2017.
After completing his Bachelor’s in Business Communications, Danny found himself back home where he would further his experience in baseball. He has grown to become a well sought-out hitting instructor from all areas within the youth and MLB community, and his unique and simple style of teaching is centered around the philosophy of maximizing each individual’s athleticism and strengths, both mentally and physically.
Being a part of the Helix team has been a blessing from the beginning. I feel very fortunate to have some of the brightest minds under one roof who are all dedicated to helping athletes achieve their goals. Seeing an athlete’s stats increase is great, but knowing they are growing to be better individuals is what it’s all about. Helix provides the atmosphere and resources to do just that.”
