What our customers have to say about Blue Chip:
“I began to work with Cat Wade in March of 2018. I'd had two surgeries that left me with residual pain and limited movement & stamina. Cat took my very non-athletic self and gave me confidence to not just heal but to push myself to build my strength, balance, and stamina. The friend who introduced me to her said, "This woman will change your life!" She sure did. I love her holistic approach as she brings together your mind, body and spirit. And she made it fun! So different than the slog of physical therapy that didn't really help me.”
-Louise Klein, Private Client
“I've worked in professional sports in China, Nigeria and domestically. You will be hard pressed to find a more knowledgeable, approachable, and results oriented professional than Cat Wade. She has my highest level of recommendation and I would love to work with her again in the future!”
- Dr. Justin Dean, Chiropractor: Dean’s Sports Therapy
“I don't encounter many professionals that have the balanced blend of integrity, professionalism, character, kindness, and knowledge. Coach Cat Wade is one of them. I've had the pleasure of witnessing her work with athletes, as well as with other professionals and she is top-notch in how she treats other people and how she coaches. Her constant quest to find ways to better herself demonstrates humility and self-awareness, characteristics that not many professionals possess. I highly recommend Cat Wade to work with any athlete or organization because you will be getting effort and work of the highest-quality.”
- Cisco Reyes, Founder of RISE training, and Associate Professor, Linfield College Department of Health, Human Performance, and Athletics
“Cat Wade is one of the most insightful and intelligent coaches I know. She is a major mentor of mine and her ideas have helped build the base on which which I have built my own sports performance department. I consider her an excellent resource for all things sports performance and highly recommend Cat and Blue Chip Performance.”
- Jake Turner, Director of Strength & Conditioning, Smith College
“I had the pleasure of working with both Cat Wade and Griffin Waller. I am a certified athletic trainer with 12 years at the division 1 level. This staff was one of the best I ever worked with. They have a strong science base and are very well researched. They are a vital key to team/athlete success. As an athletic trainer their collaboration was integral and highly valued in all of the return to play for injured athletes. I would strongly recommend utilizing them!”
- Amber Markey, Sports Medicine Professional
“Being a high level collegiate athlete, I found training with coach Cat to be very beneficial to my development. It was awesome to have a coach that not only pushed our physical strength and conditioning, but also placed a focus on our daily wellness and constantly changing stresses and workloads of life. By monitoring each of us with data such as heart rate, VJ, minutes played, stress toleration, sleep, academic loads, etc. we could literally view the changes to ourselves on a day to day basis. This helped me take responsibility for my own training and performance because I could see the direct correlation of my output levels in comparison to how well I took care of myself on and off the court. By doing the questionnaire, testing, and monitoring, I was provided with concrete data that gave me something to strive for or weak areas that I needed to improve. I found it really cool that coach Cat could look at our data for the day, or week, and give us completely different lifting or running sessions based on how much we could tolerate. For me personally, this allowed me to keep running and lifting at higher intensities, even through season, because that is what my individual body needed. Some of my teammates bodies would need something much lighter or maybe just foam rolling on the same day. This allowed each of us to improve ourselves while maintaining our health by paying attention to our bodies. Even though basketball is a team sport, everyone was treated as an individual because each body reacts differently. Seeing coach Cat put this into action and being able to ask any questions we wanted, really helped me learn more about my body and how it works and performs at its best.”
-Kaylie Van Loo, Team Athlete
“I have been an athlete all of my life, I have played and coached at a high level. However, when I wanted to train for a personal best and needed to improve my conditioning and my strength all while maintaining a busy work / life schedule I turned to Blue Chip. Cat has helped me grow tremendously and taught me so much along the way. My resting heart rate has decreased, my mile time has improved, I am stronger and I beat my performance goals.
I have two young children and my husband travels quite a bit for work. Cat was able to customize a program for me taking all things into consideration. We have zoom meetings when I need them, and she tracks my overall recovery and fatigue which allowed her to make adjustments to my training when necessary. Sometimes she pushed me harder, sometimes she backed off, sometimes she made big changes.
One goal has been achieved and we have already started on the frame work for the next!”
