CINCINNATI, Ohio – Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine and Black Sheep Performance have agreed to a partnership to get athletes back to elite performance quicker.
“The goal at Beacon is to put the patient first,” Beacon Orthopaedics President Dr. Peter Cha said. “We want the best sports performance program and the best health and wellness program for the patient, and that is exactly what Black Sheep Performance provides.”
Black Sheep Performance, located at 10888 Kenwood Rd., Blue Ash, Ohio 45242, was established in 2018 with the mission of delivering results, creating an inclusive environment and leveraging a comprehensive training style focusing on the energy, care and attention to each individual who walks through the door.
Black Sheep Performance was started by Patrick Coyne, a Cincinnati native who began his athletic career at Hamilton Badin High School before attending The University of Cincinnati to play quarterback.
“I’m from Cincinnati, and everyone knows what and who Beacon is. For us to be able to partner with someone as the leaders in sports medicine in their city, the partnership means everything to us,” Coyne said.
Not even four years after the establishment of Black Sheep Performance, Coyne has created one of the fastest growing performance training organizations in Cincinnati, training weekend warriors, youth and professional athletes from across the country, including Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow and defensive end Sam Hubbard.
“It’s kind of the old-school style of marketing. If you give someone a good product, they’re going to go and tell their 10 closest friends. We’ve been doing that with our clients, and we’re fortunate to build those relationships.”
The agreement will only enhance Beacon Orthopaedics and Black Sheep Performance’s footprint in the sports medicine and sports performance landscape in the Greater Cincinnati area.
Central to this new partnership is Beacon Orthopaedics’ Bridge Program, which is designed to ease the transition from injury recovery to return to full function, decrease your risk of re-injury, and improve strength, range of motion and balance after injury. Beacon’s Bridge program is open to everyone from weekend warriors to competitive athletes.
The Bridge program focuses on using functional analysis to determine the specific exercises that will help individuals reach their optimum level of function. Sessions are individualized and completed by one of Beacon’s certified athletic trainers, Josh True and Mark Keiser.
Black Sheep Performance’s facility will provide an optimal location for athletes participating in the Bridge Program. After participants have completed the Bridge Program, Black Sheep Performance will provide an opportunity for athletes to further improve their strength, speed, agility, plyometrics, mobility, and injury prevention, propelling athletes to generate even better results than before their injury.
Included in the partnership, Beacon Orthopaedics and Black Sheep Performance will host injury prevention and sports performance camps for youth, high school and college athletes.
“Beacon provides medical coverage to more teams and athletic programs than any orthopedic group in the region. We also see many professional athletes both locally and from around the country,” said Cincinnati Reds Medical Director and Beacon Orthopaedics Physician Dr. Tim Kremchek.
“Partnering with Black Sheep Performance only elevates the wide variety of services we can offer our patients to get them back to an elite level of performance as quickly as possible.”
