These strength and conditioning classes are the perfect off-season program for competitive athletes. They created a program to help my son meet his athletic goals, supervised the workouts, and provided a post-program analysis of strength and conditioning progress. It’s very reassuring to know that the workouts are being overseen by a physical therapist and registered athletic trainer. My son likes that he can discuss problem areas, and the coaches will structure some exercises to address them. On top of all of this, the coaches also stress proper nutrition for athletes in training, and this has encouraged great eating habits at home – something we parents haven’t been able to accomplish. Well worth the investment!
— Dana Vanderbosch, Parent of Cross Country and Track Athlete
