"My goal is to offer the highest level of arm protection to athletes, so they can have an effective preventative tool that will reduce arm stress and help increase their longevity, performance, and overall health." - Jason Colleran, Founder
Jason Colleran started playing baseball at four years old and began to struggle with arm pain at age twelve. He kept playing through the pain as most athletes do, and was sidelined his first year of high school due to a slight rotator cuff tear. Struggling to stay pain free, he kept playing and earned a college scholarship and played as much as his arm would allow. The elbow pain forced him to stop playing completely. Three years later and after several cortisone shots he made a return in the Continental Baseball League in Texas, but this time it was a hamstring tear that ended any chance of a professional baseball career.
This sparked the beginning of a never ending journey trying to solve the reasons why athletes break down. Over the past 20 years Jason has worked as a problem solver and biomechanics consultant for athletes, performance coaches, and medical professionals. He started with the Muscle Activation Techniques Specialist internship in Denver, and soon after traveled to Oklahoma City for the Resistance Training Specialist Mastery level program. Specializing in musculoskeletal and resistance mechanics, Jason opened Elite Edge Training Center in Atlanta as a sports lab in 2012. His clientele ranges from world champions, million dollar athletes, doctors, physical therapists, and also young athletes looking to stay pain free.

"Jason's experience is unmatched in the Atlanta area. I would definitely recommend him to friends or even patients who are struggling with pain or injuries."
-Dr. Megan Spence, DPT
"Jason Colleran has an incredible grasp of human biomechanics and kinesiology that he applies to his work with patients in the Atlanta Sports community. His knowledge is on par with many of the orthopedic and chiropractic clinicians I've had the pleasure of working with."
-Dr. Jason Weeks, DC
"I was having low back pain, which my sports medicine physician believed was not due to arthritis or a problem with a disc, and he referred me to Jason Colleran for MAT(Muscle Activation Techniques). The therapy worked, relieving pain present for months, and allowing me to regain full activity. Jason is a good resource for preventing and recovering from sports and workout-related injuries, and I highly recommend him."

I suffered for many years with Achilles tendinitis and recurring muscle tears in my calves. I had access to multiple modes of treatment and was able to obtain temporary relief only to fall back into the same recurrent injury pattern with any increase in activity. Using MAT, Jason determined the areas of muscular dysfunction and restored muscular efficiency in my legs in just a few sessions. Further, he provided simple exercises to maintain the benefit. Over a year later, I now exercise pain free and without limits. I highly recommend Jason and Elite Edge!

As a physician and father of a 16 yo pitcher I was fascinated by a rather lengthy advertisement describing the biomechanics of an arm device that specifically protects the joints and tendons from breakdown. The perfect arm/kinetic arm sleeve provides a way to pitch at a young age while proactively preventing the need for Tommy John surgery and other injuries as well. I called ‘the company’ to enquire further and was greeted by Jason Colleran, the inventor. We had a lengthy and truly informative conversation about the arm sleeve, his educational background, and his extensive background in professional sports and sports fitness. Finally, I’d found a professional who had combined knowledge with a practical application of sports specific mechanics. One session with the sleeve and my son easily and excitedly recognized the potential benefits when used while pitching and during long toss exercises. Try it once, and the sleeve will speak for itself. I can verify that it meets absolute medical and biomechanical standards. Jason owns a fitness gym, called Elite Edge in Atlanta, Ga. He spends much of his time training professional football and baseball athletes who are injured or rehabilitating from surgery in addition to highly trained Marshall Arts competitors. He also offers training for the serious fitness athlete. He was kind enough to commit to a personal training program for my son who is not injured. He demonstrated again the benefits of the sleeve and how he specifically translated his knowledge into a practical application that resulted in the kinetic arm sleeve. We noticed that Jason not only utilizes a series of workouts emphasizing the core and use of ‘explosive’ mechanics but that he does these exercises in a very specific order clearly organized to generate the best possible outcome in the shortest amount of time. A synergy of knowledge, experience and competence is rare to find. My son and I are happy to have found it!
