"As a Team USA Figure Skater I spend as much time on recovery as I do training on the ice. Chris Phillips with Compete has been a great addition to my team. I rely on Chris and his staff as the primary resource for sports rehab and massage. He has been instrumental in my overall wellness and conditioning."

Mariah Bell, 2022 USA National Champion and Olympian

"I have known Chris at Compete for so many many years that I feel very confident in giving him praises. He has rehabed back to full-go so many of my surgical and non-surgical patients for years that I can't keep count. He is an expert in getting people back to sports at a level even better than they were before their injury. He is extremely knowledgeable, a patient advocate and is focused on getting patients back to their best possible physical condition. I highly suggest you consider letting Chris take care of you for any orthopedic issue."

-Dr. Scott Graham, SCOS

"After retiring from competitive competition many years ago, it had been years since I picked up a weight or tried to work out consistently. Mike’s constant motivation and positive energy allowed me to get back into working out. His knowledge of what exercises to do each session allows me to live a well-balance life with my active kids and family, which is all provided at the Compete Sports Performance and Rehab facility. ."

-Rhea Benedict

"As an outstanding trainer in the fitness and nutrition world, Mike is one of the best professionals I have worked with in any field. At his facility in Yorba Linda CA, Mike has both the space and modern equipment to comprehensively train or rehab any athlete. In both his 1:1 and group client work, Mike takes the time to first fully understand his client’s health background and their personal objectives for training. I can’t speak highly enough of Mike professionalism and knowledge across the spectrum of both team and individual sports. Highly recommended, without reservation!"

-Dave Batson

"Chris Phillips helped me become what I am today. Without his knowledge and dedication I could never have achieved the accomplishments that I have gained in my hockey career."
