Our goal at An Athlete’s Dream is to train you to become the best overall athlete you can be regardless of your chosen sport. An athlete who demonstrates the utmost commitment to excellence through unparalleled work ethic, determination, and spirit will achieve his or her goals.

Our focus is on improving your athletic performance and athleticism while decreasing your risk of injury by incorporating sports performance based training in the new revolution of training athletics for top performance. The program focus is on building strength, power, speed, lateral movement, quickness, mobility and flexibility. The results create athleticism and reduce the potential for injury.

Sports Performance Training/Sport Specific

Whether you have one day or five days per week to train with us, we use our revolutionary training system to help you achieve your athletic goals and exceed your athletic potential faster so you can be the best, when you step on your field of play.

Flexibility — is the ability of muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia to stretch. The range of motion in the joints and the ability of the muscles to contract and coordinate all define how we move. The implementation of a proper flexibility program is imperative for soft tissue recovery.

Core Stability — is training that specifically targets the deep small muscles of the lumbar spine and trunk. The aim of core stability training is to effectively control the position of the lumbar spine during dynamic movements. Athletes will learn how to efficiently employ the proper techniques in recruiting the trunk musculature to activate the lumbar-support mechanism to keep a neutral spine position.

Speed — is the quickness of movement of a limb, whether this is the legs of a sprinter or the arm of the shot putter. Speed and speed endurance are integral parts of every sport and are influenced by the athlete’s mobility, functional strength, strength endurance and technique.

Agility — is the ability to change the body’s position efficiently, and requires the integration of isolated movement skills using a combination of balance, coordination, speed, reflexes, strength, endurance and stamina. Also defined as “a rapid whole body movement with change of velocity or direction in response to a stimulus.”

Olympic Weight-lifting — trains an athlete’s explosive capabilities by increasing the strength of the neurological signals to the muscles creating greater synchronization between muscle fibers. Exercises such as the clean and jerk, as well as, the snatch, are effective for enhancing the capability to produce extreme accelerations against intense resistance.

Functional Strength — training that increases muscular balance and joint stability, which leads to fewer injuries and increased performance. Functional strength training better prepares the body for an individual’s sport by working through a variety of specific movement patterns that mimic the actions of the sport. Incorporating various strength exercises that utilize the muscles to maximum efficiency, athletes will assure themselves of obtaining the extra edge next season.

Power — is the rate of performing work. It is a measure of how much energy is created in each second that passes, the size of the force applied and the velocity at which it is applied. Speed and strength are integral components in virtually all athletic movements and combine to form power.
