As we get older we are told we must go with the flow.  That if the majority of people say it is good it must.  The problem with this saying is that it has created weak soft men.  We have become a society that has very little backbone and we just do what we are told. 

What typically separates greatness from being average is that you go against the normal.  You forge a new path and make things better for society.

With Master Degrees in Health and Exercise Science from Furman University, Dr. Tommy John brings over 17 years of health experience to the table. At completion of  his studies Dr. Tommy played professional baseball for three years with teams such as the Schaumburg Flyers, Tyler Roughnecks and the LA Dodgers.  After his career was abruptly ended from a rare infection in his throwing shoulder, Dr. Tommy developed his own baseball performance company providing over 11,000 baseball training sessions for baseball enthusiasts from ages six to thirty. Additionally, he expanded his practice of personal training, sports performance training and rehabilitation of all types of soft tissue injuries. 


Dr. Tommy was drawn to chiropractic because he realized there was a higher element missing from the healing, performance process and proper function of the human body in the innate intelligence and the nervous system: brain, brain stem and spinal cord.  That paramount observation led him to obtain his Doctor of Chiropractic Degree from Life University, (a 4-year program), in Marietta, Georgia, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. 


As the son of renowned Major League Baseball pitcher Tommy John who played in the Major Leagues for 26 seasons and was the first person to comeback in 1974 from the revolutionary surgery named the Tommy John Surgery, it is not surprising that Dr. Tommy developed a passion for proper healing and physical function as he witnessed firsthand the outcomes of injury, innovation and principled healing.


The primary goal of Dr. Tommy John Performance and Healing Center is to provide entire families with integrative, individualized care plans and treatment to improve their quality of life by reducing physical and emotional pain from injury and aging and minimizing the use of pharmaceuticals or surgery.

Rick Hagedorn is a professional speed and sports performance coach and a former high school football and track and field sprint coach from Orange County, California.

As a high school football coach, Coach Hagedorn is the proud owner of three CIF Championship rings and states that all three teams had two things in common: great players and great speed. 

As a speed coach, he has privately trained many individual athletes and teams for sports requiring speed development. He not only trains high school athletes in getting ready for the Nike Combines, but also trains college football athletes in preparation for the NFL Draft and the various team Pro Days. He counts California CIF Champions in football, basketball and baseball, California State Champions in football and track and field, and a football seven time Hawaii State Champion as programs that have adopted the Speedburner approach to training.  As a Nike sponsored speed coach and a certified SPARQ national trainer in conjunction with Student Sports Magazine promoting Nike's "You're Faster Than You Think" speed initiative, the Nike Speed Showdown brought Speedburners to life, and convinced him to broaden his athlete base to accommodate the incredible demand for speed training. For that reason, Speedburners was founded in the summer of 2004. 

Since then, the Speedburner system has spread across the country as he has visited many cities conducting speed camps and clinics. Coach Hagedorn says the most rewarding aspects about Speedburners is how well they are received in all of the cities, how much fun the athletes have while they're training, and seeing the difference it makes in their athletic performances in their respective sports. 

Rick Hagedorn has written articles on speed development for Student Sports Magazine, Volleyball Magazine, SPARQ Magazine,and Athletes.com, the world's largest training site. He has been featured in Sports Illustrated for Kids Magazine, Local Hype Magazine, Nike SPARQ Training, CBS Sports Stars of Tomorrow, 1560 The Game Radio Show in Houston, ESPN Radio, ESPN Radio Hawaii, The Josh Pacheco Show, NBC Sports, NBC Sports Online, NBC Strikeforce Fights, America Online MMA, the Orange County Register, ABC Houston, and various newspapers around the country. Speedburners has been featured in video shoots for Local Hype Magazine, AquaHydrate water, 2XU compression gear, and an HBO training shoot featuring Ukrainian boxer Vasyl Lomachenko. He also has worked as a technical advisor for Nike on video, commercial and photo shoots and worked with LaDainian Tomlinson for action shots for ESPN the Magazine at the University of San Diego. 

The belief that there is not a sport that isn't speed based is reflected in the athletes and sports represented in the Speedburner system. Sports and athletes in football, basketball, baseball, soccer, softball, lacrosse, swimming, golf, water polo, wrestling, mixed martial arts, volleyball, track and field, cross country, rugby, ice hockey, ice skating, dance, bobsled racing, and fitness, all employ speed.
