In 2008, Legacy Sport & Wellness Center opened in Dallas, Texas with an innovative approach dedicated to teaching sports performance and wellness.

Recognizing the need for a different way and better results, Scott Herrera spent more than twenty years traveling throughout North America to study from the highest regarded experts in their respective fields – strength and conditioning, corrective exercise, and osteopathy.

For our innovative approach, it was necessary to construct a new business model, using a system with better exercises and more specific exercise instruction performed in an environment conducive to change.

At the core of Legacy’s approach are three key components:

  • Each Person is an Individual – there are no protocols
  • Client Education is the Foundation for Permanent Change
  • Structure and Function are Inter-related

Athletes and clients who visit Legacy Center receive a customized home program specific to their needs.  Private and semi-private sessions, and weekly group exercise classes support people on their path to permanent change.

Examples of group classes include: ELDOA for General Wellness, Abdominal Training, Basic Conditioning, Myofascial Stretching for Athletes, Myofascial Stretching for Wellness, and  ELDOA for Back Pain.  In addition to Legacy’s exercise system and group exercise program, the Center offers traditional weight-lifting (global training) and cardio-vascular training.

Legacy has been using ELDOA with our clients for over fifteen years and teaching ELDOA group exercise classes for more than a decade.

Legacy’s Sports Program

The goals of an athlete training for sport or competition are not the same as exercising to be well. Legacy’s sport training program is for athletes and very active individuals who strive to perform at the highest level.  With every sport, there are injuries and in competitive athletics there is no time to lose.

As a conditioning specialist with advanced training in corrective exercise and performance rehabilitation, Scott Herrera has worked with the most difficult of orthopedic cases.  For these cases, he uses Legacy’s innovative approach in conjunction with the medical team to maximize time and get results. Athletes who consult with the Center receive comprehensive programs custom-designed to address their goals using many of our sport specific exercises.

In addition to one-on-one training, Legacy is host to workshops and sport-specific camps using our innovative approach. Professional camps include Pre- and Post-Season Training for Hockey, Baseball, Football, Soccer, and Golf.

Legacy’s Wellness Program

The Center in Dallas caters to a wide spectrum of clients.  For this, it was important to create a system that distinguishes between wellness clients, sports performance clients, and pain – special needs – cases.

The primary objective of Legacy’s wellness program is to teach clients how to build a healthy body.  Each client is viewed as an individual with specific needs and goals and we believe education is the key to change.  Clean water, quality food, sleep, and stress management are all foundational principles in Legacy’s wellness program.

Clients who visit Legacy Center receive customized home programs specific to their needs.  Private sessions are scheduled to work on personal programs.  As a part of our system, we organized a series of semi-private and group exercise classes to support clients on their path to permanent change.  Examples of group classes include: ELDOA for General Wellness, Abdominal Training, Basic Conditioning for Wellness, Myofascial Stretching for Wellness/Myofascial Stretching for Athletes, and ELDOA for Back Pain.

In combination with Legacy’s exercise system and group exercise program, we offer traditional weight lifting (global training) and cardio-vascular training.  Other services include massage therapy, clinical aromatherapy, and lifestyle coaching.

The Legacy Institute

As part of Legacy’s model, we opened a teaching facility that offers regularly scheduled certification courses and workshops for health practitioners, exercise professionals, and clients. All courses are organized into short, intensive modules offered throughout the year and respect the teaching method, “Learn by Doing”.
