Greatness isn’t chance, it’s a choice. It’s the choice to be dedicated, to be disciplined, and to give the game everything you’ve got and ask for nothing in return except a shot. That’s the commitment you make to the game, and that’s the same commitment SPORTPERFORMANCEU makes to you.
So how does SPU help you choose greatness? It's because we've taken no shortcuts in finding the best way to help athletes achieve their goals. We take a comprehensive approach to development, doing an analysis on all aspects of performance and creating a seamless program to ensure the athlete has the best chance possible to achieve the goals set forth.
Biomechanical Integrity The first part of every athlete's development program is finding out how well their body moves; does it have proper function, are the joints allowing for the appropriate range of motion, are the essential movements ready to be used? In all cases, there are some areas of restriction, and by analyzing this first, we can correct poor or restricted movement, reduce the risk of injury, increase the capacity for skill acquisition, and create a more complete training program. This is an extremely important part of any training process that is very often left out.
Physical Output Once we understand the athlete's biomechanical integrity, we can take a look at their physical outputs, meaning strength, power, and speed. This gives us a better idea of why they perform the way they do on the field of play. When we see strengths and weaknesses, we know what to focus on in their training, keeping in mind the needs of the sport, position, age, and capabilities. Every athlete who walks through our doors receives a completely individualized training program based on those factors. We do not do generic workout classes, no one-size-fits-all, we create a program that is right for the athlete.
Sports Skills Sport specific skills come after Biomechanical Integrity and Physical Output; only after those items have been analyzed can a coach truly understand why an athlete executes skills the way he or she does. They lay the foundation for sport development. SPU can write up a summary of strengths, restrictions, and capabilities for an athlete to bring to his or her coach, and also offers elite level skill and fundamental development for football and baseball players.
Sport Nutrition We can only perform so long as we feed our body with the right fuel. To ensure that every athlete is reaching their potential and performing at their best, we'll educate on the myths and truths of nutrition, as well as provide meal planning and review. There's is no way to outwork a bad diet - combine good nutrition with good work habits, and we have a formula for improvement and long term health.
