How Activ8 Works
Understanding the Athlete
Getting a Baseline
The assessment involves the collection of data from two test: movement analysis and performance testing. The Performance test focuses on power, strength, agility, and metabolic conditioning. While the movement analysis focuses on joint integrity, range of motion, and spacial awareness.
Customized to Optimize
A personalized training program will be created for new clients designed around their specific goals. Each client is educated on how they will be progressed through the training program and the milestones they can expect to achieve at each interval. Where applicable supplementary home exercise or flexibility regimens will be provided to the client to maximize their performance gains.
Recovery is the mandatory part of an athletes training regimen to maximize performance and reduce the risk of injury. Recovery modalities such as passive and active stretching in addition to aquatic training are incorporated into the client’s personalized program.
Progress Check In
Depending on the intensity and duration of the personalized training program, each client will have periodic consultations with our performance specialists.
