Basketball Training Camp – Get a jump on basketball season. Sign up for our 6-week basketball training camp, October 2 to November 8. This program is designed to help high school basketball players prepare for the demands of competition, develop overall athleticism and strengthen areas that are commonly injured playing this sport. The class incorporates barbell lifts and velocity-based training with the EliteForm system. It also focuses on jump training and accessory work, providing athletes total body development. Classes are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:45-5:15 p.m., October 2 to November 8.

Yoga for Athletes – Yoga instructor will incorporate movements specifically targeting areas commonly associated with athletic performance, such as the hips, hamstrings, shoulders and thoracic spine. Improved mobility is something the vast majority of athletes can benefit from.

Youth Speed Fundamentals – Class covers essentials of force production in running (proper posture, foot strike, arm swings). Linear speed, deceleration, reactive and choreographed change of direction are covered in this class. Basic plyometrics (jumping) and core stability are also covered. For elementary school age, 8 and above.

Beginner/Intermediate Speed – The same speed development as the youth class is covered for beginners, but after the youth class finishes, beginners will begin a strength training workout covering the fundamentals of movement. These include push, pull, hinge and squat patterns, among other parts of a well-rounded training program. For middle school age.

Varsity Speed – Class covers the same aspects as the youth speed class but enhances them for the more advanced athlete. This class covers techniques in more detail, as the athlete is old enough to begin honing these skills and acting upon more detailed instructions. Once the speed work is done for the day, this class has a workout consisting of med ball throws, jumps, resisted springs and posterior chain work to further develop the attributes associated with speed. For high school age.

Varsity Sports Performance – This class does the same speed development as the varsity speed class, but instead of the speed workout, athletes will have an athletic performance program specifically tailored to their sport and individual needs. On days the athletes don't do speed work, they will have conditioning to improve their endurance in their sport. This class will incorporate barbell lifts and velocity-based training via the EliteForm system, as well as jump training and accessory work to give athletes a balanced training program for their sport. We will also work in conjunction with activities each athlete is doing at high school to make sure we are not overtraining in certain areas and only training in ways that foster continued improvements. For high school age.

College/Pro Performance – For our most advanced group. This group is set up the same as the varsity performance class, but programs for this class are even more individualized. As athletes in this group often have a higher training age than high school athletes, there is an increased need for specificity in their training. We incorporate different training modalities to continue developing positive adaptations in the advanced athlete. For any athlete out of high school.

Strength Circuit – Circuit-style training that implements numerous pieces of equipment and machines to achieve a well-rounded, total-body fitness program. This class focuses on building strength while increasing cardiovascular fitness and improving body composition. It can be adapted to meet the needs of each individual.

Lift – Traditional strength training. This class offers instruction in performing compound barbell movements and accessory work to improve total body strength. It follows a periodized program and, with EliteForm, allows class participants to track their results and see their progress. The class uses EliteForm to implement velocity-based training.

HIIT – High-intensity interval training incorporates short bursts of intense cardiovascular exercise followed by less intense active rest periods. This allows class participants to keep their heart rate at a high level throughout the class and continue training without becoming too fatigued. The main focus of this class is improved body composition through fat burning and improved cardiovascular endurance.
