The Lab Athletic: Basketball and Sports Performance Training

Why Sports Performance Training?

Sports performance training (SPT) is training of the body and mind to prepare the athlete for the rigors of sports.  The benefits include: injury prevention, decreased wasted effort due to improper technique, increased postural control and balance, increased agility, coordination, speed, strength, and elevated maximum power output.

In contrast to personal training where the goal is to improve overall fitness and appearance, the goal of sports performance training is to enhance the athletes performance in competition to make them more successful in their chosen sport.  Using sound scientific principles and proven training techniques, we create customized and effective workout plans to increase athletic quickness, speed, agility, strength, and stamina.

Here are a few things that set us apart from standard strength and conditioning programs:

  1. We use a more disciplined scientific approach to training.  Our coaches are educated and certified specialists.

  2. We are technique orientated, focusing on proper mechanics and sound fundamentals.  We utilize a specific progression of training.  There is no “maxing out” , youth athletes should not being doing max weight.

  3. We limit class size to ensure more attention to each athlete and to be able to enforce proper technique and maintain control of class.

  4. We utilize integrated movements that focus on functional strength and neuromuscular efficiency, having the athletes work in all 3 planes of motion versus just one plane in which traditional strength and conditioning uses.

  5. We focus on safe, efficient and effective workouts.

Regardless to what sport your athlete plays, sport performance training will make your athlete more well rounded, versatile, functionally and mechanically sound all while increase speed, quickness and coordination.
