Why Train With Elite?
At Elite, we’ve worked with athletes, clients, and teams of all ages, from youth to professional and every level in between. Our highly-trained and experienced team of strength & conditioning specialists and sports performance coaches can design a program for you or your team that focuses on improving the most important attributes of athletic performance, including strength, speed, agility, and power.
Our trainers pay close attention to ensure our athletes use proper form and technique in an effort to maximize our athletes’ results while minimizing the risk of injury. By teaching and emphasizing excellent form during training sessions, we also help our athletes improve the quality of their individual workouts.
We also have a passion for injury prevention and can perform pre-season injury risk assessments for athletes and clients, which include the Functional Movement Screen and Y-Balance Testing. These tests allow us to identify faulty movement patterns, asymmetries in strength and mobility, and deficits in dynamic balance and core stability. By utilizing the data from these tests, we can help predict which athletes are at a higher risk of injury and provide corrective exercises that could help reduce the risk of future injury.
