Thank you for your interest in the 6 Week Young Athlete Performance Improvement Program
Wednesday (6/28 thru 8/9) 1 -2:30 pm (Grades 9 thru 12)
Thursday (6/29 thru 8/10) 1:30 – 2:30 (Grades 5 thru 8)
All athletes want to be on the top of their game, enhance performance and stay injury free. However the pressure to focus on one sport and to play it year-round results in using the same muscle groups day after day. Often there is little time to rest and recover, let alone to get stronger or work on injury prevention. One way to address these hurdles is to add Pilates and Functional Movement training to their program.
This 6 week program can fill in the gap for these young athletes by introducing them to basic body awareness/control; improve alignment, range of motion and flexibility: stronger core while conditioning body and mind; and help protect against injury with faster recovery if one has a set-back.
We will utilize several modalities and equipment in this program ranging from the pilates reformer, tower, spine corrector/arcs to foam rollers, TRX suspension trainers, and Yamuna Body Rolling.
