Sport Specific Training
This type of high-intensity training is especially suited for athletes who require training at an advanced level. Sport specific training emphasizes quality over quantity, and is designed to help athletes get past training (and performance) plateaus while providing the stimulation needed to reach optimum performance: on and off the court. For those returning to sports following layoffs or rehabilitation, we also provide sports conditioning to help these individuals return to their respective roles. This service is available to teams and individuals. Some of our high-intensity strength techniques include: Breakdown Training, Pyramid Training, Assisted Training or “Forced Reps”, Negative training, Super-sets and Compound Training.
Flexibility training is probably one of the most overlooked, poorly executed, misunderstood, and undervalued components of physical fitness and health. Achieving and maintaining flexibility are important factors in reaching optimal physical potential. Our flexibility-training program encompasses a number of sound stretching techniques that ultimately enable our clients to increase their range of motion (ROM) and improve the flexibility necessary for specific activities, sports performance and handling daily chores- without compromising joint stability. Stretching can be a very enjoyable, relaxing part of a workout and when done properly, it can help clients build and maintain functional movement capability.
Nutrition & Weight Loss
Diet and exercise go hand-in-hand when it comes to getting in shape and maintaining a certain weight and/or physique. Our comprehensive nutrition and exercise program is customized to our client’s unique metabolism. Since most of our new clients sign-up with a weight loss goal in mind, the nutrition program provides a framework to meet their specific nutritional objectives in the convenience and privacy of their own homes.
A strong heart is the cornerstone of any fitness program. To optimize cardiovascular fitness and maximize calorie burning, we utilize a fun form of cardiovascular training, which encourages the client to work a little harder than they are used to, after they have acquired a base level of fitness. Because cardiovascular fitness is best achieved through activities that use continuous and rhythmic movement (like walking, hiking, running and swimming), we encourage clients to choose activities that they love to do so that they will stick with their program. An eventual goal will be to engage in cardio effort three to six times a week. their initial fitness level, their rate of progress, and their feedback will influence how often, how hard and how long clients work out.
The term resistance training is an umbrella term used to describe various types of strength or weight loss training. our resistance training programs are tailored to the specific needs of our clients and include free weights (like dumbbells, barbells, hand held weights, and free plates), elastic resistance, weight machines, and the client’s own body weight (e.g., when doing push-ups). There are many variations of resistance training systems, all of which incorporate varying intensity, breathing and lifting techniques along with range of motion.
