Co-founder and Director
Sherwin oversees the technical development of the CAP program. He has owned and operated his own strength training academy since 2012. At 14, Sherwin attained his black belt training under Sensei Mike Woodford. He then trained at the UCS training center for 12 years under Greg LeBoeuf, a hand-to-hand combat instructor for elite military groups including JTF2, the Navy SEALs and SWAT. That led him to Charles Poliquin, an internationally famous strength coach and medicine practitioner. Sherwin took the advice of these two exceptional mentors to always seek the most skilled person in any field.
He has been taught by the best in ayurvedic medicine, lab testing, gastrointestinal health, detoxification, rehabilitation, metabolic syndrome, Chinese medicine, psychology, hypertension and cardiovascular disease, hypnosis, biofeedback, brain chemistry, NLP, endocrinology, and genetics, among others. Sherwin has his UCS instructor certification (the only trainer to ever be certified by this body, to date). He is trained in boxing, kickboxing, kali, Jeet Kune Do, Brazilian Ju-jitsu and full contact stick fighting, but his passion is strength training.
Dr. Mark Tommerdahl
Mark Tommerdahl, CEO & Co-Founder of Cortical Metrics and a strategic CAP Partner, is a neuroscientist and faculty member at the University of North Carolina. He has a broad range of research interests that center on cortical mechanisms of information processing. His initial studies that made observations via extracellular recordings and optical imaging of stimulus-evoked cortical-cortical interactions in non-human primates led to the development and application of novel human sensory perceptual testing methods and technologies to research across a broad spectrum of neurological disorders. Neurological areas of interest include concussion/TBI, developmental disorders (e.g., autism), aging, and chronic pain. Dr. Tommerdahl is also co-founder of Cortical Metrics, a company that is actively developing neurosensory assessment technology that can be widely distributed. Education: B.S., Biology, Davidson College; MS and Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering and Mathematics, University of North Carolina.

Dr. Hossein Rouhani
Hossein Rouhani is an assistant professor in the departments of Mechanical Engineering and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Alberta since 2015. He received BSc and MSc degrees in Mechanical Engineering from Amirkabir University of Technology and University of Tehran, Iran, respectively. He also received a PhD degree in Biotechnology and Bioengineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) in 2010 where he was a postdoctoral fellow in 2011. Dr. Rouhani was then a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Toronto from 2012 to 2015.
Dr. Rouhani’s fields of research are musculoskeletal biomechanics, biomedical instrumentation design, and development of wearable neuro-rehabilitative technologies. Within his translational research program, Dr. Rouhani has had several collaborative research projects with university hospitals, such as University Hospital of Lausanne, Clinique Bois-Cerf, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, and Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital. At these hospitals, he has developed and clinically implemented wearable biomedical instruments for objective outcome evaluation of neurological and orthopedic conditions that affect human locomotion and balance.
