Injuries are the #1 set back for athletes that not only hurts the team, but individual careers. Not all team coaches are trained in injury prevention. A personal trainer can help fill in the gaps and help ensure your team a successful season. We teach the players how and why injuries such as ACL tears, shoulder tears, and ankle sprains happen. When they understand these fundamentals they are less likely to react, even sub-consciously, in such ways as to cause those kinds of injuries. If a championship is your end goal then hiring a team trainer is a must have and worth the investment.
The focus is on re-alignment, rebalancing muscles, cross-training under-used muscles, and maintaining muscle tone, flexibility, & mobility. This is recommended for teams that did not perform well the prior season and want to maximize their off-season time.
Our recommended program includes pre-season training, supplemental in-season training, and off-season training. We recommend training 2-3 times a week.
Coaches are good at training in their specific sport and teaching plays, but personal trainers know injury prevention, muscle balancing, conditioning and cross-training best. Our personal trainers work alongside the coach to develop an effective and safe training regimen for the players. While coaches focus on developing players' skills, our trainers focus on strength, speed, and agility in the context of your specific sport. Our personal trainers have an eye for spotting individual weaknesses and will address them individually with customized modifications and progressions in order to prevent player injuries.
Our trainers can either lead or supplement pre-season per coach's desire. The focus is on performance conditioning as well as achieving and maintaining muscle balance.
The focus is on performance, whether that be increasing speed, agility, or strength. Our trainers work with the coach during practice to lead warm-ups and cool-downs and ensure proper player form. Trainers assess players during practice and plan training programs individually for each player for non-practice days. On training days our trainers will work with players on performance nutrition plans, muscle rebalancing, body alignment, cross-training, and performance conditioning including strength, speed and agility.
