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.

—  PATRICK KANE, CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS

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.  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.

SAM GIBBS

DIRECTOR OF NUTRITION & WELLNESS

Sam Gibbs currently serves as Director of sport medicine and sports science with the Canadian National Basketball Program, and previously served with the Canadian Olympic Committee. Gibbs brings over 20 years of clinical expertise with professional athletes in performance nutrition, functional medicine and therapy, and his services will help form the backbone of Tomahawk’s programming.
