Stan Pogrebinsky with Wetek Personal Training and Massage therapy in San Diego
Corrective Exercises for Jiu Jitsu Athletes:
This Service includes our hands-on personal training, assisted stretching, joint manipulation, massages, and assessments to correct imbalances in the body which often arise when practicing Jiu jitsu. Practitioners will see benefits through increased performance, body mechanics, and flexibility along with a reduction in soreness and general pain typically associated with the sport.
This is a unique service, providing training and massage specific for the needs of each individual. Every practitioner has a specific style and certain tendencies which result in a diversity of imbalances specific to the mechanics of the individual. These problems are only magnified when one also considers the toll daily work can take on the body. The stress and damage from these activities can build on each other. We work to correct this by assessing what you do in the gym, at home, and work, figure out which movements are the dominant, and create a program to fight the specific damage, while keeping you limber and agile to promote longevity in the gym, and daily life.

This website is specifically dedicated for corrective exercise and myofascial release for Jiu Jitsu Athletes:
Over the years of Personal training and Massage therapy, while practicing Jiu Jitsu, I realized just how important it was for us as Jiu Jitsu practitioners to take care of our bodies in order to keep the rolling alive. I started looking closely at various guards and how much toll the repetitive movements take on the body , and decided to use my knowledge of corrective exercise and massage therapy to teach and break down various guards and allow anyone who loves the sport and also loves to train with weights, be able to using simple techniques in a structured format help overcome and minimize discomfort.
“I have been playing soccer for most of my life, which as you can imagine has taken quite a toll on my body. With Stan’s help over the past few years I have been able to continue playing for much longer than I had thought possible. The massage and stretching regimen we came up with has kept me injury free and feeling younger both on the field and in my daily activities."
"I am a purple belt Jiu Jitsu competitor. I had a bad groin injury for 6 months. My mobility was shot, and it was difficult to close guard and train, I was planning on seeing the doctor soon. I saw Stan with Wetek Massage Therapy and Personal Training at a Jiu Jitsu competition one time doing assessments and chair massages for these athletes. We exchanged information and shortly after I came in to see him. We had 2 sessions and my pain was gone. What Stan did with his massage and stretching put me back on the mat and educated me on so many levels. Now, I am referring everyone I know to go see him!."
Outstanding therapeutic massage! Did an excellent job releasing multiple knots in my neck and back. Was not your average massage, quickly pinpointed multiple problem areas and fixed them on the spot. I left the session feeling like a different person , my pain and stress levels were non-existent. I would highly recommend to anyone suffering with pain or injury.
Recently I had the pleasure of a personal training session with Stan who I met through Jiu Jitsu. I am currently recovering from a broken ankle. Stan did a wonderful job of showing me workouts that I can still be doing while also explaining how they translated to jiu jitsu. He's a wonderful trainer and incredibly knowlegable. I'm looking forward to our next session - Nathan W.
Wetek does amazing work! Went in there with shoulder pain and Bicep pain due to Jui Jitsu training, and man did he do some crazy stuff but alleviate much of the pain and stiffness. I highly recommend this place if you need anything tweaked, or have any pain and stiffness.
I highly recommend Stan. He has been one of the best massages I have gotten!! The massage was very relaxing and extremely helpful. I suffer from neck and sciatica pain and he was able to release the knots and tension that I've had in my neck and lower back. If you are looking for someone that knows how to do an actual massage and is able to release pain in the first visit he is the guy to go to!
7/29/2020 I've been seeing Stan as my personal trainer for over 10 years now, which speaks for itself. Our workouts are always unique, fun, challenging and deliver the results I'm looking for. The variety of different training styles and activities really keeps me engaged and is something other trainers I've had just can't deliver over such a long period of time. In addition to personal training, Stan offers massage, which is a perfect combination. It's wonderful after a strenuous workout to get a relaxing deep tissue massage! I would highly recommend Stan at Wetek for both personal training and massage!
Stan trained my athlete daughter (11yo) for almost a year. It was very helpful for her sport and competitions. He always was in time for training sessions, he always was so dedicated and had a clear plan of things to do. He even went beyond and came to meet coaches of my daughter to her club for better understanding her sport and skills she needs to develop. He is a very smart personal coach in fitness, who creates individual program for you. My daughter was very happy with his training. I warmly recommend him for training. We found him actually by recommendation of friends, who trained with Stan for many years before.
There's something to be said when you have been able to find someone who can help with more than just one issue. Have come back to Stan time and time again as no matter the injury sustained, he has been an invaluable part to the recovery process. Definitely wouldn't be able to get back to the sports I love without his help! You will be able to quickly see why he is exactly what you need to get back on the road,mat, floor or to whatever activity it is you love.
Stan's soothing massages are done with excellent pressure. His hands are intuitive and he easily adapts his technique to fit your needs. Stan easily released pressure points while explaining ways to modify daily behaviors that put stress on our bodies. I appreciate Stan's patience with me when a new movement or drill doesn't click right away. He explains the techniques in easy terms and provides great in-depth insight into each lesson. I'm 5ft and 126lbs, so I particularly appreciate Stan's controlled and intentional movements when we roll.
