To provide sports performance training that enables athletes to reach their highest potential both during and beyond the years of competitive athletics.
To be recognized as the most structured, passionate and elite Sports Performance facility in the nation. Through a comprehensive and scientifically based program, Reach Your Potential Training (RYPT) will reduce the risk of injury while improving all components necessary to allow athletes reach their highest potential in sport performance. These components include, but are not limited to strength, speed, power, agility, flexibility/mobility, conditioning and nutritional awareness. By improving these performance variables, our athletes will increase their self-esteem, mental strength, and physical dominance.
RYPT PROGRAM PRINCIPLES
While it is our role to increase the overall performance of our athletes, we must make injury prevention a priority by taking a scientific and practical approach to decreasing the risk of injury during training and competition. To keep players in the training facility and competitive arena, we must minimize the time lost due to injury by training all qualities of performance. Special attention is placed on:
- Single leg and eccentric strength
- Force absorption and transfer
- Core stability
- Joint mobility
- Landing mechanics
- Proprioception and body awareness
After all athletes have been properly screened and assessed, individualized programs are an integral part of targeting problem areas that could lead to injury. Through proper activation patterns and body positioning, we will be able to eliminate compensations before they become detrimental to an athlete’s performance.
To prevent injuries, a comprehensive training program must be balanced in its approach to enhance performance. Major areas of the body must be trained during every training session. Emphasis is noted on (but not limited to) the following areas:
- Lower posterior complex (explosive sports)
- Upper posterior complex (overhead sports)
- Single leg strength, stability and movement mechanics (female athletes and jumping sports)
- Neck and surrounding support tissues (collision sports)
- Muscles of the wrist, ankles, and hands (throwing, gripping and catching sports)
Weaknesses, asymmetries, and deficiencies found through the athlete screening process will dictate the primary needs for each athlete. The body’s muscle groups and actions must be balanced for optimal efficiency.
Athletes at Reach Your Potential Training are not here to become weight lifters. They are here to become BETTER ATHLETES. However, every protocol, method, and system of performance enhancement will be utilized in the sports performance program to improve the efficiency of the sport itself. Like athletics, our movements are:
- Ground based
Explosive lifting, plyometrics and throwing modalities will be used to develop the necessary speed and power required to succeed during such a highly intensive activity such as athletics. We utilize a quality vs. quantity approach. The ultimate success of our athletes is not determined by weight room or field numbers, but individual and team success. There is a purpose of why our sports performance program does things, and it is our goal to help our athletes “connect the dots” between performance training and performance playing.
