He is the creator of the HyperNova© Athletic Development & Functional Fitness System©, which includes the curriculums of Cyclic Oscillatory Power Progressions© (C.O.P.P.) and Biomechanical Reactivity Training© (B.R.T.). Recognized for his expertise in the nuances associated with biomechanics, oscillation, amplitude, speed, stability and specialized motor learning and unit recruitment training, Tsunami Bar has asked Coach Massi onto its advisory board in a testing and programmatic development capacity. He is currently providing lead oversight in testing the products within the fitness, athletic development, sports performance, physical rehabilitation and movement restoration environments with his business associate Craig Machado, as well as his network associates Matt Cascioli, PT of Haven Physical Therapy and Dr. Gus Sofos of Sofos Chiropractic & Wellness.

In a recent interview with Coach Massi, he stated, “I’ve been employing biomechanical reactivity, oscillation, amplitude, speed and stability training with my clients and athletes for over twenty years through the use of very elaborate, costly and restrictive kettlebell, band and progressive resistance set ups and riggings. I was often limited in complete and intended usage for safety reasons, yet still maintained the need for a product that would assist to achieve the additional speeds necessary for maximal acceleration and deceleration parameters required for inter and intramuscular development and coordination. With the advent of Tsunami Bar products, they have entered most, if not all of my developmental protocols. They have freed me to progress my work with Biomechanical Reactivity Training©, oscillation, amplitude, speed and stability training, and elevated motor unit recruitment protocols, while providing me with a less time consuming, yet more dynamic platform by which to train my clients and athletes. I have been able to reinvent my phases of training to be more inclusive in considering Rate of Force Development, Maximal Force, Force Endurance and the avoidance of Force Dissipation. Additionally, the products have afforded me a new means by to enhance my work throughout the various frames of movement. I only enjoin myself with projects that I am confident will complement the objectives of a healthy strength and conditioning industry. My intention is to work closely with Tsunami Bar in providing honest and accurate feedback, while assisting to provide my opinions as to the most effective means for trainers and strength coaches to infuse Tsunami Bar products into programming and achieve maximal efficacy. The learning curve is nominal, yet the results are profound. Additionally, the group behind Tsunami bar are industry leading professionals who provide and possess a legitimate degree of peer accountability.
The Tsunami Bar group demonstrates immense industry character and integrity in their agreement with my assessment that; Tsunami Bar products may not necessarily be the end-all-be-all for fitness, rehab and athletic development, however it is a revolutionary, multi-dimensional platform that cannot be ignored and is most definitely an integral, invaluable and necessary part thereof that will prove to be of paramount importance in expediting development on all levels. Tsunami bar has quite literally become the go to, revolutionary, progressive tool of choice.” Coach Massi is currently using Tsunami Bar products in developing athletes and fitness clients of all levels, as well as performing return-to-play programs for athletes, youth thru professional. Tsunami Bar plans to continue seeking the advice of Coach Massi in the further development, training and utilization of products, as well his contributing to the development and composition of Tsunami Bar training and developmental protocols. He currently has the first Tsunami Bar International Training & Education Headquarters located within his New York facilities.
