Our Training Philosophy
We focus on fundamental and functional movement patterns.
We build strength and control starting with the core, apply it to major lifting patterns, and then to movements on the field. Throughout all of this, we take care of soft tissue and mobility work to maintain functional movement.
We use cyclical training variations to provide appropriate training stress throughout the year that will help you perform your best during the post-season!
We acknowledge that every athlete has their own goals, working edges, training history, and personal schedule that impact how they interact with their training plan.
We provide tools and strategies to care for the whole athlete from nutrition and mental health to monitoring training (and life!) stress.
We respond to athlete feedback and stay current on the latest research through study and collaboration to keep our programming current and responsive to your needs.
This membership was specifically designed to meet the needs of college ultimate players!
Customized to fit the USAU college calendar
The college season runs on its own calendar, which means training happens on a different timeline for you than it does for club players. This program is set up to get you prepared for peak performance in the college series.
Complete programming throughout the calendar
College teams vary widely in how much they meet to practice, especially since breaks fall during times that interrupt the training calendar. This program gives you all the tools you need to be physically prepared to perform! The strength & stability training moves alongside the progressive running programming to get you where you need to go, and the complementary soft tissue and mobility resources care for you in between. There are recommendations on how to shift your training plan according to how many team practices, scrimmages, and pods you have (or don’t!) so you can feel confident going into tournament season.
Options for when you can’t get to the gym
You might not always have access to gym equipment! This membership includes gym-free programming that moves through the same rhythm of training as the lifting programming. It works great as strength and stability training on its own or can substitute in for when you’re home for break and can’t get to the gym!
