THE KEY TO YOUR SUCCESS IS PERSONAL
Many sport performance centers say they provide personal attention, but in reality the athlete is lost in the crowd of large group sessions. These group session often contain athletes of all different ability levels, employ cookie-cutter training methods or provide a glorified “Open Gym” where athletes follow their own program with occasional feedback from coaches wandering the gym floor. They may call it semi-private personal training, but it couldn’t be further from the truth.
We believe in being hands-on – physically showing you proper technique, guiding your arms, legs and hands through the proper motions. We believe ensuring our athletes maximize their efforts and each movement to it’s fullest potential is the difference between average results and great results. If you are new to exercise, you’ll appreciate the education, and if you are already accustom to fitness, you’ll gain a new appreciation in the proper movements and techniques – and you’ll feel the difference!
This is why we limit our truly semi-private sessions to only four athletes and each athlete has their own customized program they follow, track progress, and progress through.
PERSONAL PROGRAM DESIGN
Personal training is helpful for any person. But personal program design is critical to your success. Any trainer can take you through a generic strength training workout with lifts commonly done by athletes, but our Performance Trainers craft a comprehensive personal program that is based on your performance assessments, sport, and performance goals. Preplanning each session up to your seasons start and in-season program adjustments, we’ll craft a minute-by-minute workout for you that will keep you progressing towards your goals.
By nature athletes are competitive and our experience shows that our semi-private groups of four athletes provide just the right balance of personal attention – with a motivating group environment. We’ve found when one athlete is hitting personal bests, than everyone is motivate to reach new heights. We also find that when you can pair like-minded and success oriented athletes together, then you get a recipe for strong bonds that extend beyond the four walls of Impact Fitness. Our athlete’s not only encourage each other during their sessions, but often reach out to their training teammate to follow their in-season success. It’s a culture and experience all athletes love and parents of the athlete appreciate.
