Field Sports

Advance to next-level performance

Field players must exert forces to make the play as well as resist forces to defend the play.  This takes both strength and stability.  The best athletes in the world know that core and stability training is essential to enhancing performance. When muscles are stable, they keep the body in optimal alignment, thus:

  • minimizing chance of injury 

  • increasing efficiency in:  speed, strength, power, agility, and endurance

Training areas of focus:

  • strengthening the core

  • increase deep stabilizing muscle strength in joints to minimize risk of injury

  • amplify strength, power, and balance

Court Sports

Build power from the inside-out

Tennis, racquetball, volleyball, basketball (and the list goes on) are high-powered athletics, requiring quick reaction time and accuracy on the court.  Building strength from the inside-out, with focus on deep stabilizing muscles, will help the body to:

  • increase power through more efficient movement

  • improve strength utility

  • better withstand the shifting forces on your joints during play to minimize chance of injury

  • improve precision

Training areas of focus:

  • strengthening the core

  • building deep stabilizer muscle strength

  • increasing strength and power

Equestrian

Don't forget your own fitness

As an equestrian, your fitness is just as important as your horse's.  A strong, stable body with solid posture keeps you more balanced and controlled in the saddle.  This helps to minimize extra strain on your horse, reduce risk of injury, and allow for a more comfortable and successful ride for both of you.

Training areas of focus:

Good physical condition of both the rider and horse is essential for minimizing horse-related injuries.  This program will focus on:

  • strengthening the core

  • improving posture and balance

  • building strength in arms, legs, and hips

Extreme Sports

Reach new heights

What distinguishes extreme sports experts from everyone else is their:

1) ability to separate upper and lower body movement with precision

2) ability to change directions and turn shapes at will.

 

This is achieved through extreme core and trunk stability as well as some serious strength, balancing skills, and focus.  While injuries can not always be prevented, having the right training in these areas helps increase control and accuracy, maximizes power, and minimizes risk of injury.

Training areas of focus:

  • strengthening the core to optimize control & accuracy

  • building deep stabilizer muscle strength

  • increasing strength and power

Water Sports

Align, streamline, & get to the wall first

Unlike land athletes, who use the ground to anchor their power, swimmers must rely on their bodies alone to propel through the water.  A strong and streamlined torso enables efficiency in the arms and legs.  It helps improve speed and technique through synchronizing muscles across the body, thus producing more power with less effort.

Training areas of focus:

  • strengthening the core to maximize power efficiency

  • building deep stabilizer muscle strength, with focus on shoulder and knee, to minimize risk of injury

  • increasing strength and power in arms and legs

  • improving posture and neck strength
