Sports Performance And Fitness

Why train with us?

Too many athletes end their athletic careers not because they want to, but because they have to. Don’t let this happen to you. Learn how to intelligently train to prevent injuries before they occur, and to improve performance along the way.

How do we do it?

Our sports performance coaches perform a Functional Movement Assessement on every client athlete. A Functional Movement Assessment is an evaluation of an athlete‚Äôs movement patterns designed to identify any underlying physical imbalances that would affect an athlete’s competitive edge or predispose an athlete to injury. An athlete performs a series of functional movements designed to identify orthopedic and neuromuscular deficits that would adversely affect his/her athletic performance. From the results of the assessment a customized sports performance program is designed to assist the athlete in gaining a competitive edge and to begin to realize his/her athletic potential.

What constitutes a proper sports performance program?

The first and foremost component of a SAFE and EFFECTIVE program is TECHNIQUE! Many of our athletes have experienced “training” sessions that leave them dripping wet and exhausted. Is training harder the only way to train for sports performance? The answer is NO!

According to the National Strength and Conditioning Journal, “Studies show that the incidence of overuse injuries sustained by young athletes could be reduced by 50% if more emphasis was placed on the development of fundamental fitness abilities before sports participation.” The missing ingredient in sports performance training is TECHNIQUE.

A good analogy for the importance of proper athletic technique is having your tires properly balanced on your car. Properly balanced tires allow the car to be driven faster, prevent uneven tire wear, permit the slowest rate of tread wear possible, and provide the greatest protection against blowout. The same goes for proper exercise technique and the human body, especially the musculo-skeletal system (bones, joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons).

So many injuries are the result of the combination of poor technique and overtraining. We have seen too many youth athletes (ages 8-18) come to our facility with a long list of musculo-skeletal injuries like stress fractures, acute and chronic muscle strains (hamstrings, calves, etc.), and ligament sprains (knees, ankles, etc.). This is NOT NORMAL! Most of these injuries start with an acute episode followed by chronic pain and loss of motion. They occur because the athlete is not properly balanced due to years of poor technique.
