Jon Messner was hit by a car when he was 17. His father rushed him to the emergency room and even though nothing was broken, he was severely bruised. Over time, he developed knee pain and surgery seemed inevitable.
Jon wanted to avoid surgery and read books on physical therapy, functional anatomy, and sports medicine. Jon discovered the cause of knee pain might be weak gluteal (hip) muscles, but was reluctant to accept this as the cause of his pain. Despite his misgivings, Jon started hip strengthening exercises and his
knee pain disappeared in two months.
Jon was inspired to teach others how to cure knee pain, back pain, hip pain, and shoulder pain
without surgery, and in 2011, opened Core Fitness.
Shortly after, Jon returned to coaching college track and field. Jon’s unique approach to coaching distance runners has resulted in numerous school records, personal bests, and conference championships.
