Human Performance Center is located in the beautiful foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains in Santa Fe, NM. With an elevation of 7000 feet above sea level, the Southern Rocky Mountain air is thin, the light is fantastic, and this is the perfect location to live an active, outdoor lifestyle.

Kele and Fred McDaniel, co-founders of Human Performance Center, Inc and Functional Integral Technique (F.I.T.) have spent the past 20 years finding REAL, evidence based solutions to modern day conditions which limit mobility and vitality. Fred & Kele look at the whole person, not just the symptoms. They have helped thousands of people not only get out of pain but understand why and how their situation developed and what to do about it if it returns. This revolutionary approach is based upon recognizing neuro-dysfunction in the human movement system and utilizing the power of neuro-plasticity to reprogram movement pathways. Through a variety of techniques, we unveil where the body is not functioning optimally and how to correct those patterns of dysfunction using advanced hands-on treatment techniques and cutting edge movement therapy.
The first phase to finding connection to your core structure and gaining higher function in your overall movement capability.
The Second phase in gaining optimal movement function. This is where the integrity of our connective tissue has the health to withstand forces of our natural movement patterns.The fifth phase in the F.I.T protocol. Mobiltiy is where your brain/body connection is synchronized in a balanced way to have control through a specific range of motion.
The third phase in the F.I.T training system is Balance. Balance is the body’s ability to maintain center of gravity with it’s own base of support.
The fourth phase in the F.I.T. protocol system. The strength phase is where we use resistance training to further our ability to support the posture and healthy movement patterns we are trying to create.
The sixth phase in the F.I.T. training protocol is where we train the body/brain/nervous system to work in the most optimal way.
We’ve been focused students of movement, rehabilitation, exercise, nutrition & supplementation, mindfulness/meditation for 20 years. We are both highly engaged in living an active lifestyle (cycling, running, strength training, yoga, hiking, snowsports). We’ve each had a variety of injuries over our lives as athletes, too many minor injuries to count but also we have been through nine combined surgeries for injury correction. Through these injuries and surgeries, we have gained tremendous first-hand insight on how to help others who are suffering from pain and want to live a more optimal, active lifestyle.
