HOW DO WE GET STARTED?
Unless under 10 years of age, each prospective client must schedule a comprehensive musculoskeletal evaluation by one of our on-site physical therapists. At this point, a personalized program will be developed and a schedule will be set in place.
HOW MANY DAYS A WEEK IS THE PROGRAM?
Our clients choose their level of commitment on an individual basis. We strongly encourage a 2X a week program.
HOW LONG DOES THE PROGRAM LAST?
We implement a methodology based on periodization. This means that we will look at your starting date versus the start of your season and develop the program as such to have you at peak performance at that point. For example, in the weeks prior to your season, the program will gradually depart from the power phase and morph into a more dynamic, explosive based program designed to mimic the faster movements associated with your position and sport. Once off-season training is completed, and the season starts, many clients continue to train once a week, in an in-season strength and power program.
HOW LONG IS A SESSION?
The training sessions initially last one hour. After a few sessions, the client will be asked to come in 10 minutes prior to appointment to complete their Active Dynamic Warmup and be ready to start with the trainer at the start of their session. As the client’s workouts progress over time, the sessions may evolve to longer periods. However, the rates remain the same!
WHAT AGE IS SAFE TO BEGIN TRAINING?
The perception that strength development is unsafe for young athletes is inconsistent with current knowledge. Generally, if a child is capable of participating in an organized youth sport, he/she is capable of participating in a training program. Recent research has demonstrated that proper strength training is 6 times more effective in musculoskeletal development of pre-adolescents. In addition, beginner athletes will benefit greatly because the 7-10 age parameter are the most crucial years for motor skill development.
WHAT IS SEMI-PRIVATE TRAINING?
All semi-private training consist of 2-6 persons. Any individual client can enroll, as we will group you accordingly. Although in a group, differentiated programs are implemented for each client, to meet their own objectives and needs.
IS THIS FOR ADVANCED ATHLETES ONLY?
Our client list currently includes 7 year olds seeking increased coordination, balance, and fitness to professional athletes attempting to secure their future. We are about maximizing each person’s potential regardless of skill level or physicals stature. Self-esteem and confidence is gained through our work and obviously transcends to other aspects of lie.
WHO WILL TRAIN MY SON/DAUGHTER/ME?
Our staff consists of professionals with varied educational and athletic backgrounds. This allows us to place each client with the performance trainer best suited for their specific needs or learning style. All of our trainers carry the highest certification in the industry…Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist by the National strength & Conditioning Association
DO YOU TRAIN ENTIRE TEAMS?
Yes. Obviously training entire teams does not offer the individualized attention attained in our semi-private programs. However, it is a great entry level introduction to functional training, as well as being very cost effective.
SHOULD I TRAIN WHILE IN SEASON?
The bulk of our clients follow up their off-season program with a once a week in-season maintenance program. Depending on the athlete, gains may still be achieved during this period.
