Sports Performance

Our Sports Performance Training program is designed to take you to new levels of fitness! We train athletes of all ages to improve strength, speed, agility, form, and endurance to create a well-rounded athlete both on and off the field. Our Sports Performance Training program helps train the body and mind to prepare the athlete for the rigor of a specific sport. It is unlike our personal training program in the sense that the athlete is trained, conditioned, and prepared to compete in their specific sport of choice instead of the spectrum of general fitness. Individualized characteristics of each of our clients, like their age and fitness level, are combined to create a customized and specific workout plan. Ultimately, we are here to motivate you and make you a more confident athlete in your sport of choice. For more information, contact us today!

What is Sports Performance Training

Our Sports Performance Training program was created to focus on enhancing the performance and competition level of the athlete by using the latest in sports science, developing a sport-specific strength and conditioning program that improves the athlete as a whole, targeting things like their strength, agility, speed, power, coordination, and balance. We strive to make our athletes more competitive in whatever sport that they are specializing in. For example, a volleyball player would need to focus on building skills like balance, reaction time, vertical leap, and agility. We would create a plan that mimics the specific movement patterns that are required on a volleyball court. The training that they would need would be tailored to the demands of the sports, and would ultimately help them excel in competition.

The Importance of Sports Performance Training

We believe that daily training is an integral part of an athlete’s physical and mental preparation for sport, as well as, the athlete’s ability to recover from the stressors of sport. We are proud to offer athletes of all sports and skill levels the opportunity to train at The Fitness Equation. Our team of trainers are equipped with the expertise and tools to elevate your athleticism – all we need to begin is you! Regularly training for a sport helps athletes build a strong mind and body, as it has many benefits for self-esteem and mental health, in addition to the plethora of physical outcomes that can be achieved like speed, strength, power, endurance, hand-eye coordination, and balance.Muscle tone, strength, circulation, agility, and flexibility are some of the characteristics that are sharpened with our Sports Performance Training program. 

Becoming a Better Athlete

There are many methods that are incorporated into our Sports Performance Training program, a few being endurance training, speed and agility training, strength training, interval training, circuit training, plyometric training, and more. Each training method is specific to the needs of the athlete and helps them stay motivated, establishing their goals as well as team cohesion. It is important to incorporate a few different training methods, that still all relate to the sport, to keep from overtraining the athlete and preventing injuries. As physically demanding and serious that training should be, it should also be enjoyable and seen as a way to boost morale and interest in the sport. Our specialists and personal trainers facilitate each training session with the goal to boost improvement in performance as well as self-confidence in the sport.

Our Sports Performance Training experts are trained to help athletes gain the experience and results from hard work and determination. We strive to make athletes the best at their chosen sport, so start your journey towards athletic excellence by contacting us today. We look forward to working with you!
