Each athlete begins their training process by completing a one-on-one comprehensive Functional Movement Screen and overall athletic Assessment/evaluation. These evaluations are used to gain a better understanding of each athlete’s personal needs by assessing their overall body composition, range of motion, muscular imbalances, functional strength, sport specific speed as well as power. Until an athlete knows his or her current level of ability, it is impossible to realistically create goals and monitor progress.
Prior to any training begins, athletes map out training goals to help provide personal focus throughout their training process. From there our training programs are designed strictly on an individual basis in order to cater to the needs of each athlete based on personal and sport specific demands.
Evaluations also determine any previous performance training knowledge from other training facilities or coaches as well as the athlete’s injury history. It is important that athletes have the basic understanding of the training process and what is expected of them in the program. These assessments are also a means of tracking an athlete’s progress throughout their training process.
