Pat Connors BS

Since graduating from SUNY Cortland with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology (2011) with concentration in fitness development, Pat has trained professional, collegiate and high school athletes. He continually is researching alternative ways to help his clients. He has been an advocate of developing and executing well-rounded training and recovery protocols for maximized performance in all of his clientele.

Through his pursuit of knowledge, Pat learned of whole body cryotherapy (WBC). Taking note, he saw successful professional athletes utilizing this into their training and recovery regimens. Additionally, he has read and studied about WBC success in helping to manage chronic illnesses such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and MS.


Prior to moving to Buffalo in 2003, Jake served in the US Navy aboard the USS Carl Vinson (CVN 70). He was trained to operate and maintain cryogenic equipment for liquid oxygen and liquid nitrogen production for shipboard uses.

After completing his enlistment, Jake attended the University at Buffalo where completed he three degrees: Bachelors of Science in Exercise Science (2006), Master of Science in Exercise Science (2008) and Doctor of Physical Therapy (2011). While at UB, he began his career as a movement and strength coach with internships with the Buffalo Bills. 

Upon completing his Doctor of Physical Therapy degree, he was further able to extend service to those who needed to rebuild their performance after severe injury or illness related to deconditioning. In all settings, a training and recovery protocol were necessary for achievement of performance goals.
