In 2016, Wellness Solutions and Pinnacle Training Systems joined forces allowing us to provide the most comprehensive services to first responders. Our mission is to offer a scientific based approach to help individuals achieve their fitness and training goals.
Wellness Solutions was founded by Lynette Helmer and has been in business for over 20 years. In 2016, Felicia Gomez joined Lynette as a business partner with Wellness Solutions. Pinnacle Training Systems was founded by Felicia Gomez, Ph.D. and has been in business for 10 years.
With a Ph.D. in Exercise Metabolism and Nutrition, the Vice President of WS and Founder of PTS, Dr. Felicia Gomez, has taught in the field of exercise physiology, health and wellness for over 20 years. In addition, Dr. Gomez is a former professional athlete, and intimately understands the needs and concerns of high performing athletes. Fire fighters and law enforcement officers are tactical athletes and need specific training for their profession. Other health and wellness companies often overlook the advanced health and fitness training that is needed for first responders.
At a minimum, our support staff holds Bachelor’s degrees in Kinesiology or related fields, and most have advanced degrees and certifications making us experts in preventative care. Thus, we know how to evaluate the needs of tactical operators and can properly implement appropriate training techniques into a training program which will improve the performance of emergency responders.
Together, WS and PTS have over 30 years of providing health and wellness services to a variety of entities such as private companies, municipalities as well as police and fire departments throughout California. The size of these departments range from 25 to over 500 first responders. Our participation rates are well above industry standards, even reaching 100% participation for a voluntary program. We have been successful in reducing workers compensation costs, injury rates and have saved lives.
Services provided include:
Wellness Coaching can be provided to all tactical athletes tested to discuss results and provide individualized programs (fitness and nutrition) to improve areas of weakness and maintain areas of strength.
We provide seminars/webinars and trainings on a wide variety of health and wellness related topics specific to tactical operators.
Functional Movement Screens
Functional Movement Screening is a tool to assess individual who are at risk for injury. Individuals are put through a battery strategic movement patterns to identify areas of weakness. If a minimum score is not attained the individual is provided with exercises that can be done to strengthen the muscles involved in the movement pattern.
All services can be provided on-site and scheduled to best suit the needs of the Department.
