Why Sports Training
With the ever increasing level of competition, athletes have come to realize the importance of year round training programs that incorporate all areas of training specific to his/her sport. We offer quality services and programs for athletes who want that "..edge over their competition" Our Sport Specific Training programs are individually designed to meet the specific needs of each athlete so that they may reach their true potential in the shortest time possible. Programs are based on player's sport, age, sex, physiological profile, previous conditioning experience and are periodized based on a yearly cycle. Custom programs include: warm-up, cool-down, recovery, flexibility, cardiovascular, anaerobic/interval training, weight training, nutrition, plyometrics, medicine ball, abdominal/core training, agility, and balance/coordination.  


What does Sports Training Consist of?
1. SPORTS STRENGTH TRAINING Strength is developed with the intent of improving sport skills. As athletes your primary motive is to increase performance and to enhance movement. The brain thinks in terms of movement not individual isolated muscles.

2. SPORTS BALANCE (Proprioception) Training The ability to display strength in conditions of instability is actually the highest expression of strength. The emphasis is on not only improving strength but incorporating balance and stability with strength, in the simplest form, strength that you can use for your game.

3. CORE TRAINING Stabilization / Rotational Strength Most Sports are played in an upright position so therefore, majority of your core training should be done standing up. Developing strength and power in all planes and at varying speed will enhance athletic performance and reduce injuries.

4. Training for SPEED, AGILITY and QUICKNESS (Acceleration) The ability to decelerate, redirect and accelerate as well as to achieve high velocities (speed) is crucial to an athletes sports performance especially in a team game. In team sports the prized quality that everyone talks about is speed, but what really separates athletes is the acceleration that the player has.

5. SPORTS CONDITIONING The goal of the conditioning program is to improve sports performance not just to improve recovery time. Asking athletes in sprint dominated sports to develop a base through long steady runs can lead to muscular degradation in length, range of motion, and overuse. The ability to tolerate the muscular forces generated by accelerating and decelerating and the ability to adapt to the additional metabolic stress caused by acceleration and deceleration are the real keys to conditioning.
