Training class curriculum covers: hopping, skipping, galloping, jumping (vertical & broad), balance (forward & backwards), crawling, climbing, basic gymnastics tumbling skills, throwing, catching and kicking. Parents are asked to stay throughout the training class to observe, help with any behavioral issues and to assist if your child needs to use the restroom.

High School

Introduction/Intermediate to Strength & Power Training (Ages 13 & Up)

We have all of our athletes start here regardless of their lifting background/experience. We often find that our style of training is a whole new beast for most athletes. We take our training programs that are normally offered to collegiate/professional athletes and offer them to our local youth athletes in a fun, safe, professional, and supervised environment. We develop athletes by improving their: speed, power, strength, stamina, coordination, flexibility, core, quickness, agility, mental toughness and nutrition. We then enhance the athlete into a champion through work ethic, encouraging a champion’s attitude as well as teaching athletes what it means to compete. Athletes will learn proper lifting technique, mechanics, breathing and body posture.

Advanced Strength and Power Training (Ages 13 & Up)*

This is the training program/group we want all of our athletes striving to reach. This training group is compiled of our top-tier, local, elite athletes that are college bound...preferably on scholarship. We train these athletes just like we train our collegiate & professional athletes.  They WILL be one step ahead of their teammates/competition when they reach their destination. Many of our former athletes who are now college-athletes train in this training group as well!

Conditioning

Speed Development (Ages 12 and Up)

Speed is one of the most valuable traits that an athlete can obtain. This class is taught by former division one track & field athlete/elite runner, Keysha Benzing. Her Speed Development training is done in a unique way following the philosophy of Run Smarter, Not Harder. Athletes are made faster and more efficient by being taught proper running mechanics, the different phases in running/sprinting (i.e.: acceleration, drive phase, max speed), proper force application/production, start technique, running posture and what it means to compete. This undulating program uses various state of the art training techniques and tools. Training can be joined at any time due to the extensive progressions employed. This class is open to all athletes ages 13 and up of all ability levels from novice to elite. Benzing also has the belief that while there are those who are natural runners, it is a skill and EVERYONE can be taught to be a more efficient, effective, faster, and more explosive sprinter/runner.

Advanced Speed Development

This training program was created for our advanced/elite athletes. We cover the same skills, follow the same philosophy as the Speed Development, but done at a faster pace and with more complex skills. Space in this class is limited and by permission only.
