Condition For Sports!

In today's game just playing is not enough!

The best in the game include off-field work in their training programs. Augment your training on the field or the court with a sport specific conditioning program designed to get you ahead of the best. Sports specific training programs are designed to help you:

  • Increase your speed for quicker breakaways.
  • Improve your acceleration.
  • Develop greater power through a strong core.
  • Hold off attackers with a stronger upper body.
  • Get faster feet and better balance.
  • Finish the game stronger with whole-body conditioning.
  • Develop a strong foundation to training for a safer career.

A personalized sport specific conditioning program draws on resources for you to get the balance, agility, coordination, strength, quickness, endurance and power you need to kick your game up a notch ... or two!

Sport specific training helps you polish your fundamentals and challenge your condition for play. From basic posture to efficient movement techniques, fundamentals are strengthened and grooved through specific and progressive exercises that help you get the skills you need for your sport whether it is soccer, basketball, golf, running, water skiing, cycling, football, canoeing or some other active sport. Sport specific training focuses on training your whole body to coordinate movement from the ground up and to move your game up to a higher level of play.

Our model for sport specific training begins with an active warm-up which transitions into sprint technique training. After a brief water break, you move into agility and multidirectional technique and speed development. Your session finishes with a general conditioning circuit that integrates your core with your upper and lower body to improve integrative strength and power, increase endurance and balance, and reinforce safe movement and conditioning techniques to reduce your risk of an injury throughout your career. Cool down includes a self-directed stretching session.
