Legends Sports Performance Training
Our sports performance program improves functional movement for the physical demands of competition and life. We help all athletes from all spectrums of sports and life to understand and grow their bodies for strong sport performances and help all athletes to tap into their Elite abilities. Our programs place intense focus on force production development/speed, lateral movement/change of direction, strength/power, mobility, and flexibility. Each athlete, and their personal development, matters to us so we cater to the growth and needs of the individual.
Prior to an athlete beginning a membership or personal training program package, each athlete must complete a short body movement assessment. The assessment/evaluation allows the trainer to understand any body limitations of movement weaknesses/opportunities. Once the evaluation is completed, the athlete and parents will meet with the Program Manager, to discuss trainer and athlete pairing, as well as to discuss the goals of the athlete. Athlete progression will be revisited every 4 months.
Speed & Agility
Our Speed & Agility program focuses on proper running mechanics, posture, linear speed, and COD quickness/burst. The importance of posture and proper mechanics often allows an athlete to properly apply force efficiently and into the ground, all while minimizing time on the ground. Since linear speed and COD burst are important to all athletes, we cater to help an athlete to understand absorption of burst, while preparing the body for straight line burst and sudden change to lateral movement.
Strength & Conditioning
Our strength and conditioning program aims to build strength and power for the athlete’s body and synonymous to force production. This program will enhance athletic performance, mobility, muscle growth and reduce risk of injury. This program aims to introduce & maintain a healthy fitness lifestyle, using plyometrics, resistance training and use of weights (when trainer/trainers feels that the athlete is ready).
Athletes will attend two sessions per week with a registered and certified instructor on staff. These recovery sessions are designed to:
Target and alleviate areas of soreness
Restore the body
Introduce mindfulness training and proper breathing tactics
Yoga is known to help speed up body recovery, increase flexibility and build a strong mind-to-body connection, which allows for better and more efficient weight room and speed gains.
B.A.S.E (Baserunning, agility & speed essentials)
Within this specialized program, we aim to combine Speed and Agility mechanics and help improve the explosiveness and speed need on the base paths. We highly recommend that baseball and softball specific athletes are signed up for this class. This program covers base path leads, explosive secondaries, tag up burst and management of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd gears, which are useful for turning singles into doubles, doubles into triples and triples into Inside the Park Homeruns. This program uses proper body mechanics and resistance training to enhance Type II muscles.
