Skater & Coach Testimonials

Team USA National & International pair skater
Coach for 18 years
"The Injury Prevention course is a wonderful tool for both skaters and coaches. After reviewing each of the sections, as a coach it is definitely worth spending the extra money on educating myself on how to help my students. This course provides instruction, videos and exercises to help stretch and strengthen your muscles to prevent injuries. I cannot wait to start applying this information with my students.
This is a great tool for skaters to use if they cannot work with a physical therapist on a weekly basis. Taylor who is a PT does a wonderful job explaining why it is important to properly warm-up and cool-down before and after a training session. The information is geared for skaters which is a huge plus!"

"Dr. Rossi does a fantastic job in laying the groundwork for building a more resilient athlete. Normally it would take visits to at least three different providers, a copay at each visit and many hours in a waiting room to get the same information on maintaining your health. With this course, Dr. Rossi presents an excellent opportunity to arm yourself with a professional-grade knowledge as a coach or athlete to boost performance and to stay injury-free. As a strength coach and physical therapist myself, I highly recommend this course for extremely valuable advice!"

"Really really good stuff with XSkate Fit. I'm actually shocked how broadly you talk about different very IMPORTANT subjects, that many forget to talk about. Even smaller things like hydration, not many young skaters or young athletes know about how all these things can effect you in a good way when done right or in a bad way when not getting enough. I also think the printable papers is genius."

Taylor Rossi, PT, DPT
Hi! I'm Taylor. I'm a Doctor of Physical Therapy specializing in performing arts, dancers, and figure skaters. I competed nationally and internationally in artistic roller figure skating in the US for 15 years and have over 30 national and international titles. As a physical therapist, I am passionate about helping performance athletes prevent injury, optimize performance, and rehab from injuries safely so they come back to their sport or the stage stronger than ever. In the figure skating world, I've experienced a lack of knowledge about injury care, conditioning required for the sport, and optimal rest and nutrition to combat overtraining, and I hope to be part of the solution to help you excel as a skater!
