EVALUATIONS

When you sign-up for any training program at Sports Performance U you'll be asked to schedule a formal evaluation. Performance evaluations are required for all athletes, while the FMS is required for adults.  Specialized evaluations such as Football Specific, NFL Combine and Biomechanical Analysis are sold separately.

Important FOR you

Do you have a goal? If you do, you're already on the right track! If you don't, we can help you find it. A man without a goal is like a ship without a rudder. Having an evaluation on record allows you to look back to where you have been, for a clue to where you are going.

Important FOR US

Evaluations allow us to establish a baseline to measure future progress, and screen movements to identify any poor movement patterns that might indicate an increased injury risk or reduced performance. It also helps us to get to know our athletes on a more individual basis. We track this information to make sure you stay on trackā€”If we're not assessing, we're guessing.

I want an evaluation

Every SPU membership and training package comes with a performance evaluation or functional movement screen; however for anyone who  wants  to only be evaluated with no strings attached, you can sign up on-line and book it on your self-service account for just $45.

    Athletes will run four 30 yard sprints. Each run will be video recorded from a different angle in order to analyze their running technique. Information gathered during this assessment will reveal any inefficiencies in the athlete's running form, what the cause is, and what to do about it.

WHAT IS FMS

FMS stands for Functional Movement Screen. It evaluates and grades 7 simple fundamental movements. Essentially, FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the positive effects of functional training and distort body awareness leading to injury.

SPORTS PERFORMANCE

In order to reach your potential, you must develop an athletic base from which to build your specific skill set.  The wider your base, the higher your ceiling.

 

Train throughout the week in sixty minute long linear speed, change-of-direction or strength sessions.

IN A PERFECT WORLD

Every athlete would begin training at age seven, entering junior varsity level one. They would grow with the program until completing varsity two at age eighteen, attending all four levels. That athlete will have achieved true mastery of mindset, nutrition, movement and regeneration before going to college. No level is lesser or greater than another, and each builds upon the previous level.

One challenge of training is that it is difficult to systematically progress athletes because it's not the same group consistently working together every session from start to finish. Enter Block Training.

WHO IS IT FOR

WHAT IT DOES

HOW IT WORKS

Block training is designed for competitive, dedicated athletes who can commit to a set weekly schedule during their offseason.  We run 4 seasonal blocks every year, each lasting between 9 and 12 weeks. Each block is divided into three week phases that focus on a specific quality.  Sessions are 60 minutes long for Junior High athletes,and 90 minutes for High School athletes.

This program helps increase athletic performance while also working to improve resilience and decrease risk of injury and pain for the next season. The program fundamentally focuses on strength to support movement and targets general movement quality, knowing the better generalist makes a better specialist. While this is a non-sport specific program, it will enhance overall athletic ability.

The phases in the program build upon one another, initially building a strong foundation, then progressing to first increase functional muscle mass, then increase strength, and finally power to run faster, hit harder and jump higher. Follow this program to be a better athlete next season. To make sure everyone starts at the same time, no new athletes are allowed into a block once registration ends.

  •  

    FOUNDATION

     

    This phase focuses on an introduction of common movement patterns and offers an opportunity to increase movement competency. Additionally, it seeks to increase both mobility (range of motion) and stability (control of movement), while correcting any movement asymmetries when comparing right and left sides. This will truly set your foundation for further success in later phases.

  •  

    HYPERTROPHY

     

    This phase focuses on an increase in functional muscle mass. This is achieved through a balance of mechanical stress (the weight that is lifted) and metabolic stress (the total time the muscle is under tension within a set due to a change in tempo or the volume prescribed). This phase further increases work capacity while setting the stage for increased success of future performance phases, such as strength and power.

  •  

    STRENGTH

     

    With a strong foundation built, this phase now focuses on an increase in strength. While the primary goal is to increase total body strength, the program remains rooted in movement efficiency. The phase will provide strength to support movement and will focus heavily on fundamental movement patterns as opposed to isolating muscles. This leads to an increase in functional strength, ensuring a positive transfer to the court, field or sporting arena.

  •  

    POWER

     

    Power refers to the product of mass and velocity, and this is the focus of this phase. Primary movement patterns will be loaded with a moderate resistance, but the added intent for speed of movement is what will lead to a positive outcome for this phase. Sports and life tend to be constrained by time, and strength alone does not suffice. The ability to generate force at speed (power) allows for positive transfer to increase sport performance.

WHO IS IT FOR

Think of athletic potential as a pyramid. Strength and speed is your base while the top of the pyramid  composes sport specific skill and knowledge of the game. This is where the Universities come into play.  If you've got a strong base to work with, sport specific training will take your game to the next level.
