What is Athletic Performance Training?

Simply put, Athletic Performance Training works to develop an athlete's current abilities in order to help them perform better on the field or court.  Practicing for a sport or playing in games can help an athlete develop their abilities in that sport.  An Athletic Performance Training Program can help an child become, a BETTER ATHLETE.  It requires that a player learn to move more fluidly, run faster to outperform the competition, cut to prevent getting beat and developing the strength and the conditioning to withstand the stress of their sport.  In addition to that, an Athletic Performance Training Program can reduce the risk of injury, to avoid loss of playing time and the pain of being hurt.  Playing games makes a player better at that sport, being a better athlete can differentiate them from other players in their sport.

The Truth About Sports

Player's want to play.  In our highly specialized sport culture, we seek out teams and clubs that travel more, play more games and tournaments.  We think, the more games our kids can play, the better they will be.  In actuality, players that spend 8 months a year playing their sport are 66% more likely to get injured.  Athletes sustain overuse injuries because they only play in the dimensions required in their sport, rather than in the way their body was created.  This is a limitation of playing so many games.  Don't get us wrong, we love competition!  We want athletes to accel at their chosen sport.  That is preceicely the reason we developed our Athletic Performance Training Program.  We Build Better Athlete's, so that, when they do step on the court or field, they can standout from the pack, earn that starting position or get the attention of recruiters.

Is It Worth It?

Each Year, you spend money to join the right team, get the right gear and travel to all the tournaments.  You are invested in your athletes success!  You want them to be their best!  The question is, are they walking onto the field or court this year better than they were last year?  Are they faster, stronger, and in better condition?  Maybe?  
An Athletic Performance Training Program can give your athlete the advantage before they even start the season!  They will build the foundational skills necessary to allow their sport coach to maximize their skills once they hit the field or court.  Your athlete will move better, reduce the risk of injury all while creating a significant difference in the way they run, jump and compete.  To begin the season with data and the mindset to KNOW they are better than last year, will be a significant advantage to maxmize their performance and maximize your investment in their growth!

I wanted to send you a note to say how much I appreciate the service you provide to our community. After my daughter Erin tore her ACL and had completed her rehab with ORS, we knew that she needed to do more not only to get back to her playing ability before her injury, but to also improve her athleticism to achieve her dreams of playing in college. 

After meeting with yourself and Dave (Physical Therapist) we decided to give Movement Fitness a try. From day 1 we knew we were in the right place… The well thought out daily plan derived from her personal needs assessment, to the ALWAYS positive and competent staff made it something she didn’t want to miss. 

In the past year, your attention has not only netted her the desired measurable improvements she was looking for, but also laid the foundation for good habits for her future. This year Erin not only competed, but excelled in U.S. Youth Soccer’s top division by playing in the National League with her team. She is also fulfilling a dream, by committing to be the goalkeeper with the Women’s Soccer program at the University of Akron in 2018. Movement Fitness helped her reach these goals.

As a parent, I think the best compliment I could ever give someone, is that I trust you with my child’s well-being. I completely trust you and would strongly recommend Movement Fitness to anyone that has rehabilitation or fitness goals they want to achieve. I believe that in business you’re often measured by what you do, after you have done what was expected. Movement Fitness has always exceeded our expectations.

Well done!
