There are many things athletes can do to help themselves other than what seems to be obvious. Athletes are expected to be at practice, train hard in the off-season and be prepared for their sport. There are a few key hidden factors that an athlete can do that may help the previously mentioned things above. […]
Baseball and softball require the ability not only to run straight ahead but also the ability to run diagonally from point A to point B. The old saying that the shortest distance between two points is a straight line can be the difference between a single, a double and sometimes even a triple. Learning to […]
Training at AllSports Pro Fitness is totally evidence-based and consistent. As a Client you’re knowledgeable about your training before you even start and your Programs are customized for you ahead of time, even before you first Daily Workout (DW).
Formal fitness research has ramped up and produced significant findings over the past few years. Prior to current research, industry ‘facts’ or assumptions were subjective and often the result of speculation, or ‘bro science’. Now, there is specialized training through collected data. We often modify due to our collection of data.
Injuries come from contact or sudden movement/imbalances in the body. Our training philosophy minimizes imbalances or weaknesses in the body by strengthening the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones.
To be a successful athlete you need good skills. Through sport training everyone has a chance to acquire skills and develop these capabilities. A differentiating dimension of top level athletes is how powerfully you can execute these skills. This is realized through a foundation of Strength.
Strength is the basis for all other fitness training based on the value it adds to your bones and connective tissues = GRF, or Ground Reactive Forces. GRF is what allows you to push off from the ground, not a function of moving your legs any faster.
At AllSports Pro Fitness we don’t rely on personal training, or random trainer led fitness workouts. Rather, we offer consistent and predictable Programs that focus on foundational strength, maximal strength which then turns into athletic power and muscular endurance which are key to excelling at your sport.
Our AllSports Programs are well documented and researched based. We engaged credentialed and published industry experts to help develop our Programs. Most often this consistency and proper implementation of programs cannot be achieved by personal trainers based solely on their experiences and certifications. Our AllSports Programs allow athletes to optimize their performance because they are built around specific sports/positions.
Research indicates that the optimum and appropriate age for fitness training is when you can follow instructions. This is typically around the age of 7 years old. We target ages 10-18 years old and beyond because this group of athletes doesn’t have access to this type of customized fitness training.
The most effective way to train for everyone, other than those with significant resistance training experience, is whole body training 3X’s per week. Alternating upper/lower body sessions is only appropriate when you’re training 4 or more times per week providing you can get the proper rest between exercises (upper on M/Th, lower on T/F). Generally this is too intense for most of our target clients.
All training sessions are supervised by our certified trainers. There is more one-on-one attention in the early phases of your Program as well as during transitions between exercises. AllSports Pro Fitness offers you a group atmosphere while you navigate your own customized Program.
Agility ladders primarily focus on COD (Change of Direction). Rarely do athletic fitness programs train for true agility because until recently the training didn’t exist. At AllSports Pro Fitness we’ve incorporated the new and innovation technology of the Fit Lite into all of our Programs. The Fit Lite relies on completely random external stimuli to develop and hone real spontaneous agility – just like in most live sports action.
During the Free Evaluation assessment, we calculate the 1RM (1 rep max) an athlete can perform on a certain exercise. An example would be squat and bench press. The customized training Program uses different 1RM percentages throughout the DW’s. We start off with lower percentages and increase according to the athlete’s physical ability.
Our facility is large, spacious, lighted, heated and cooled. You will not see a lot of machines. We don’t cater to self-directed training. Evidence shows free weights and body weight exercises best develop athletes.
It depends on the needs of the clients. Less experienced athletes will have more 1 on 1 training. More experienced athletes will primarily be on their own. Our trainers are always on the floor assisting clients and making sure everyone is performing their exercises properly and safely.
