Performance Training at Spooky Nook Sports

Sports performance training is different from your typical trip to the gym. Instead of working out to look fit and stay healthy, you work out to perform at a certain level for a specific sport. Our sports performance training programs are specially designed to help you demolish your goals, learn new skills and shatter your personal records.

Every movement, exercise and stretch we use during training is designed to enhance your athletic abilities, pack more power into your personal talents and strengthen areas of weakness. Keep reading to discover the benefits of sports performance training and how it's different from conventional workouts.

"Spooky Nook Sports Performance provides each client with an incredible training experience through the most evidence based strength and conditioning strategies in an environment of cooperation and cultivation."

Just as this quote points out, performance training focuses on evidence-based strength and conditioning strategies. While conventional conditioning emphasizes body transformation and muscle building, sports performance training focuses on the following four main elements.

1. Enhancing Explosive Movements, Reaction Times, Speed and Agility

Sports performance training focuses on increasing the power behind your every move as well as improving your reaction times, speed and agility. Our sports performance training programs encourage exercises in the different planes of motion. We'll have you moving sideways (frontal), forward (sagittal) and backward (transverse) to help you reach new levels of agility, speed, and power.

2. Using Training Designed With a Sport-Specific Goal in Mind

Sports performance programs are acutely designed to enhance an athlete's ability to execute when they're competing. Every aspect of training has a specific purpose, process, and result. We maximize every energy input to yield the greatest final output. Whether you're trying to up your hurdle game for track or increase your speed for soccer, our trainers will work with you to set achievable goals.

3. Stretching

Sports performance training uses less static stretching and more dynamic stretching, which means more moving around. Instead of holding a stretch for 20 seconds, you may be doing high jumps and triple flexion motions, such as twisting a medicine ball side to side.

4. Preventing Injuries

Injuries are the worst possible outcome in the world of sports. That's why sports performance training programs are built to prevent them. Shoulder pain and knee, back, ankle and elbow injuries are all avoidable with the right training, coaching and techniques.
