Skill and physical assessments that breakdown your athletic performance and identify key improvement metrics to help you train smarter and improve efficiently

What is Biomechanics?

Biomechanics is the science that investigates the human body’s structure and function. Our Ph.D. level experts apply this concept on an individual level to evaluate an athlete’s:

  • Joint forces and torques
  • Body segment velocities and accelerations
  • Athletic power output
  • Segment-by-segment gains
  • Critical performance metrics
  • Ground reaction forces
  • Injury risk and athletic workload
  • Speed and strength foundational baselines
  • Movement quality and efficiency
  • Anatomical asymmetries

Regardless of your experience with the data, we break it down into an understandable story so you can get better faster.

Electromyography (EMG)

EMG is a diagnostic tool that measures the electrical activity of muscles during movement. It helps our doctors understand the efficiency of your movement patterns while performing your sport specific skill.

Ball Tracking Technologies

Systems such as HitTrax, Rapsodo, and Trackman enable a deeper dive into an athlete’s output. The relationship between body movements and these output metrics can be key to identifying player inefficiencies.

Testimonials

Epic Sports Biomechanics is a place I highly recommend for athletes who want to take their game to the next level. The amount of 1-on-1 attention you get from the Performance Specialists is necessary for trying to become the best that you can be. After training with Epic for over 2 years, I’ve vastly elevated my athletic ability. I’ve learned how to properly warm up, recover, move, and treat my body right while improving my in-game performance. Without the help of Epic, I would not be where I am today.

Drew Wyers

Epic Sports Biomechanics is making the difference in both of our sons’ athletic performance on the baseball field. They struggled at the plate for a while and went to numerous batting coaches for help, but there was no significant improvement until we found Epic. Due to Epic’s in-depth study of the body’s movement, the staff was able to pinpoint the mechanical issues within each child’s swing. Thanks to the individualized programs that were built and the motivating trainers, my sons have since seen great success on the baseball field.

Working with Epic has been the best decision I have made in my baseball career up to this point.  They gave me all the necessary tools and knowledge to have success and help me achieve my goals.  The technology and science-driven programs guarantee results and help to make clear progress.  Since working with Epic for a little over a year, I have gained 15 pounds and 5 mph of fastball velocity. I’ve cleaned up my mechanics and increased my strength numbers, which has kept me as healthy as possible throughout my season. Training at Epic also helped me gain confidence with my off-speed pitches and my overall mental approach on the mound. I look forward to continuing with Epic to chase goals that I once thought were out of my reach.

Tyler Behm

I’ve had an amazing experience at Epic. In just over a month, the training allowed me to gain 4 mph of fastball velocity, learn a new slider, and hone in my secondary pitches to make them more effective. I also got much stronger and more flexible, and was helped with the college recruiting process as an additional unexpected benefit. Overall my experience at Epic has been more than beneficial, and I will continue to put in the work everyday.

Epic Sports Biomechanics clearly utilizes the leading technology available to today’s athlete. Technology is only one part of the equation to becoming an elite athlete. What makes Epic special is their ability to teach their athletes how to interpret the meaning of the data and to develop training plans that continue to evolve as the athlete evolves. Once an athlete sees, feels and understands why their body is responding to Epic’s training plans, the athlete ignites the most important ingeediant of training…consistency. When an athlete appreciates why they are making gains and can see for themselves how proper and consistent training equals meaningful results, the athlete’s intrinsic motivation to stay consistent with their training naturally occurs. Our CrossBridge Raiders’ athletes who have worked with Epic have developed training skills that they with take with them to college and beyond.

Took my son to Epic Sports Biomechanics this past weekend and what a great experience for my son (and myself). The facility is top-notch, clean, inviting, and has all the top technology. More important than the facility itself was the staff. What a great group of knowledgeable and personable people. From the moment we walked in to the second we left they walked us through everything, and expertly answered every question we had. (I am not technological in any way, but after being there I feel like I could use any of their tech). Mind you, we traveled 5 1/2 hours to get there, and I still can’t wait to go back. That’s how impressed I was.

Mathew Sanfilippo

My son (Joe) mentioned he would like to visit Epic and get an evaluation of his throwing and hitting. I had never heard of a biomechanical athletic center before. We first interviewed with the Epic team with a full description of a plan moving forward. The knowledge, professionalism, and one-on-one training led to definite progression in his abilities in just a month. I strongly recommend anyone trying to protect their athletic body. THIS SHOULD BE YOUR FIRST DIRECTION! GIVE IT A SHOT! I DID and DON’T REGRET IT!

Bob Licolli

Took my son to do some fine tuning with his baseball skills. Everyone has been very knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. They developed a program just for him with a focus on his goals. They monitor his progress and have been making changes to stay on track. A great facility!

Vanessa Jerez

I can’t speak highly enough of the team at Epic. In less than 2 months, Jake increased his fastball velo by 4 mph.  But more importantly, the training was customized to his needs through strength and flexibility and done safely without injury. We are lucky to have a facility with this level of experienced professionals in Bucks County!

Joy Ruple

Our son, Nic, suffered an injury while warming up to pitch in July before his senior year. After being diagnosed with a strained UCL, we were uncertain of his future in a sport that had been a large part of the majority of his life. One that he intended to continue during his collegiate years. Nic committed to the hardwork that the Epic staff provided for him to get done. Nic continued to progress and, in July, topped out at 88.4 mph – a gain of 11 mph on his fastball in less than a year. As parents, watching the video of Nic achieving this while the entire staff at Epic was loudly cheering him on was about as much evidence that we needed to be certain that there was no better place for him during this part of his journey.

We could not be more pleased with not only the progression of our sons’ skills, but his experience as a whole at Epic. We are extremely grateful to Ron and his staff for being such a positive part of our sons’ journey.
