PERFECT YOUR PRIME

The Tomahawk Science philosophy counters the prevailing culture of professional athletic training. We eschew the traditional strength and conditioning model in favor of an approach that combines data collection and proactive diagnostics to optimize performance long-term. With these tools, we identify performance barriers and treat them with preventive therapies to keep athletes playing at the highest level, well beyond what was thought to be their prime.

SPORTS SCIENCE LEADERS

IAN MACK

FOUNDER, DIRECTOR OF PERFORMANCE

 

Ian Mack is a renowned sports scientist who has partnered with the world’s best athletes, from Olympic teams to top players in all four major U.S. sports leagues (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL), including his recent work with Chicago Blackhawks right wing Patrick Kane and 2021 MVP Auston Matthews.  Mack was born and raised in Onondaga County in Syracuse, NY — where rates of poverty and preventable diseases like obesity and diabetes are extremely high. This environment inspired him to become a trainer and to continuously challenge himself to seek better answers on how to improve human performance. As part of this mission, Ian is a board member at the Just A Kid Foundation.
