IMPACT Sports Performance offers an innovative approach to team training – building a solid athletic foundation while staying focused on each athlete’s individual goals. Our unique program includes instruction in movement training, injury reduction, linear speed, lateral agility, explosive power development, balanced muscular strength, and energy system development. Athletes are closely supervised as the coach takes them through an intense 60-minute workout with a focus on proper biomechanics and form.
You will receive a 60 minute training session focusing on all five components of physical fitness – muscular strength, muscular endurance, body composition, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance. Age-appropriate instruction will take you through a mobility warmup, resistance training, core strengthening, and conditioning. You will have full access to the state-of-the-art equipment as well as be led by one of IMPACT’s performance professionals.
You will go through a series of physical fitness tests to determine your current conditioning level. Specific tests used are dependent on the athlete’s age, sport, position, and performance goals. Testing may include body composition, range of motion, postural analysis, power–speed–agility, strength-endurance-balance, and aerobic & anaerobic capacity. One of IMPACT’s qualified staff members will identify critical physical imbalances and weaknesses that may hamper your performance or lead to serious injury. Our pre-training analysis of your current physical condition as well as current training program may help us prevent you from injury by identifying specific weaknesses, imbalances, and/or postural abnormalities.
You will be assessed by one of IMPACT’s certified staff members to determine deficits that may be hindering you from attaining your physical fitness goals. Your assessment will include the biomechanics of each joint segment, muscular imbalances and range of motion for predispositions to injury.
You will be given a customized nutritional profile to assist in reaching your body weight goals. The program assesses physiological parameters, anatomical measurements, workload capacities, sleeping patterns, etc. to provide accurate data. The program comes with hundreds of healthy food options and portion sizes as well as daily meal examples to ensure successful goal attainment.
