Train like you mean it.

Because you do. Performance Sport Care is not just another gym where you can sit on a machine staring at your cell phone. We’re going to challenge you. We’re going to push. And we’re going to celebrate with you as you transform your body and your life.

So the only question is:

how serious are you?

Reach your fitness goals.

Fitness isn’t easy. It takes commitment: to your goals, to yourself, and to the work. But the rewards are great. Contact us today to experience the Science of Becoming Strong.

Expert guidance to get you there.

Our experts will partner with you to help you achieve your fitness goals. We don’t meet with you just once or twice then send you on your way. We’re with you every step of the way, to help you get the body you want.

More than just working out.

Performance Sport Care takes a complete approach to fitness, to help you draw up and execute a plan that includes diet, exercise, and lifestyle.

When you change everything… you can change everything.


When you’re serious about fitness training, the available options are pretty thin.

You could go work out at one of the big chain gyms with blaring music and tv’s, locker rooms that would make a truck stop blush, and crowds of people, many of whom don’t wipe down the equipment when they’re finished or are there to strut, judge, and posture. The on-site “trainers” (if there are any) work with you once and move on. They may sometimes offer group sessions on a schedule that works for them, not you. It’s a one-size-fits-all approach to fitness, and it’s not good enough.

And it’s not just about working out. We’ve all heard the saying,“you can’t exercise your way out of a bad diet.”But with all the fad diets, and supplements, and meal replacements, and books, and programs, and so on, where do you even begin? How do you find a meal plan that fits with your lifestyle, fitness needs, and physiology?

Our team of experts include a highly regarded a healthcare provider with over 30 years of experience in diagnosing and successfully treating sports and accident related injuries. This allows us to custom design a program consisting of exercise, nutrition, stretching, and other activities that will enable you to achieve your goals more quickly and with fewer risk of injury than you will find elsewhere.


Performance Sport Care is your complete fitness solution.

We are a small, clean, private facility with a complete array of state-of-the-art training equipment to help you develop your body and achieve your goals, whether you’re just starting out, or competing to be a world champion.

  • Need rehab after an injury?
  • Training for an upcoming event?
  • Working to improve fitness, strength, and flexibility?
  • Want to transform your body.

Our facility has what you need.


Equipment & diet are only as good as the expertise behind them.

You will get private one-on-one attention from our expert coaches. We start with a thorough review of your medical and injury history so we can tailor a program to fit your unique needs. Along the way, we keep notes on your workout to ensure continuity and monitor your progress. We treat your fitness as a partnership, providing the personalized guidance and tools to help you reach your goals safely and efficiently.


Dana K McDaniel-Cancel

Dana’s training expertise came the hard way: when she started out, she followed the advice she read online, and heard at the gym. But she was unable to get the results she wanted, until she worked out a plan specifically tailored to her needs with Dr. Cancel. Today, Dana is a high-ranking world-class Women’s Physique competitor.

Dana is all about dedication and persistence. She takes fitness and training personally and is completely invested in the success of her clients.

For our many friends in the bodybuilding community, we feel compelled to share with you this open letter from Arnold Schwarzenegger to his best friend, Franco Columbu:


You’ve heard me say that I don’t like when people call me a self-made man.

You’ve even heard me say that you’re part of the reason I could never accept that label.

But I wanted you to know why.

From the minute we met in Munich, you were my partner in crime. We pushed each other, we competed with each other, and we laughed at every moment along the way.

When I finally got to America, I was alone. I’d left my family, my country, my whole life behind. So when I asked Joe Weider to bring you to train with me, it was because I knew I wasn’t the same without my best friend. I could thrive without money, without my parents, but I couldn’t thrive without you.

I am devastated today. But I am also so, so grateful for the 54 years of friendship and joy we shared. The pumps, the chess games, the construction work, the meals, the pranks, the life lessons - we did it all together. We grew and we learned and we loved. My life was more fun, more colorful, and more complete because of you.

I will always miss you. But I’ll also know that a part of you lives on in me, in Debbie, in Maria, and in the millions of people you inspired every day you lived. And I will be there for Maria and Debbie, so you can rest now with no worries.

I love you Franco. I will always remember the joy you brought to my life, the advices you gave me, and the twinkle in your eye that never disappeared. You were my best friend.

Love always,
