Our instructors will train your son or daughter on the proper way to increase speed, agility, strength, and endurance by using functional training techniques along with coaching proper mechanics. The purpose of this training is to help athletes transfer what they have learned and developed from the gym to the playing field. These classes are recommended for athletes in sports such as baseball, softball, football, basketball, swimming, wrestling, volleyball, track, tennis, golf, soccer, ultimate fighting, cheerleading and any other sport that requires speed, strength and coordination.
Our Speed and Agility Class and Elite Training classes are intended to get any athlete in shape for their upcoming sports season and to improve an athlete's speed and agility skills which will in turn prepare them to have a more productive season.
Classes are intended for any athlete (male or female) between the ages of 5 on up as we work with both youth and high school athletes. He or she must be committed to improving their current athletic skills with a willingness to work at a high level of intensity. Our job as instructors is to try and get maximum effort and commitment from our athletes as they get in better shape their confidence grows help them develop into a leader.
What is the benefit to attending classes?
Today's youth athlete should take advantage during the offseason of their sport to achieve a strength and fitness level they never thought possible. It is our job to help them achieve this goal. If they have the desire we have the knowledge and equipment to make that possible.
