Why Sport Conditioning?

The field of sport conditioning is being completely redefined. In the not too distant past, most athletes did not train outside their sporting experience. Today we understand that the nature of sport and daily life requires coordinated movement, full body strength, balance and overall enhanced mechanics to reduce the chance of injury and improve performance of the human body.

Typical primary fitness characteristics - cardio/VO2 max, strength (1rep max), BF comp, looks

Sport conditioning captures the secondary characteristics of fitness (balance, agility, coordination, power, speed and reaction) and helps children, adults, athletes, and weekend warriors move with greater efficiency and effectiveness. Sport conditioning has a direct application to enhancing the athletic experience and provides a great opportunity for athletes of all ages to be more successful in sports with this conditioning. This training methodology is also very applicable within the fitness experience (group and personalized) as well as in a teaching and rehabilitation setting to build on the basics of fitness and develop enhanced movement for everyone.

Athletic/Functional vs Aesthetic/Dysfunctional training.

Multi-joint/planar movement’s allow for better balance, co-ordination and increased motivation to try more.

Kids respond the best due to developing nervous systems

Adults can enhance any athletic abilities and the elderly can build muscle, increase balance and coordination.
