Performance Conditioning

Fitness Science is more than how much weight you bench, or how fast you run. It's the science of perfecting your form and increasing your power.

Start with the basics

  • Work on movements to perfect your form
  • Develop foundational movements and advanced techniques
  • Learn mobility and stability exercises to prevent injuries

Add in performance training

  • Build muscle through resistance training
  • Reach your maximum strength potential
  • Maintain power and stamina

Then hit the high-intensity, fast-paced conditioning

  • Increase reactive speed and agility
  • Develop explosive power
  • Learn control and resiliency

The plyometric and explosive elastic movements we teach could be the most beneficial training for performance and injury prevention.

Mindset Coaching

You put in countless hours getting your body ready to compete. But mindset skills are just as important, for staying focused, getting motivated, and handling the stresses of sports, school and everyday life.

Mindset Training

  • Learn the link between mindset and performance
  • Set purposeful goals for motivation
  • Use relaxation techniques to get focused

Manage stress and pressure

  • Improve face-to-face communication skills
  • Explore positive self-talk and coaching
  • Learn mindset strategies for injury recovery

Through mental skills training, athletes learn to respond consciously to the pressures of sport and to the challenges of academics, peer relationships and everyday life.
