Emphasis is placed on the development of the athlete's physical and mental faculties, where the primary focus is on developing the athlete's basic movement skills, strength, mobility, balance, posture, and mental acuity before we even progress to the development of his/her sport specific skills! When an athlete is transformed in our program, they become self-motivated athletes. They gain three very important and significant attributes: Confidence, Competence and Competitiveness! Don't take it from us. Ask our athletes! Better yet, ask the parents of these athletes!
It's called the "LLAMES System." It's a dynamic transformation system that does not follow or conform to any training protocol or regimen. We do not have standard daily, weekly or seasonal workouts. In our unorthodox approach, there are times where we let the athletes DICTATE their workout! Every athlete we train or have trained is a success story! We have so many examples (success stories) that we can share with you!
Typical training and practice sessions lasts from 45 to 60 minutes, and usually two (2) to three (3) times a week. The only reason it will last longer is when we have to explain why the athlete is performing a particular drill or exercise and how it will benefit them. Of course, an athlete can train as often as they want depending on their goals and expectations.
No one can guarantee "instant" or "quick" results. However, some of our athletes have experienced athletic transformation after only 2 or 4 sessions!
We train in an outdoor track all year long. We believe that training outdoors allows for a better workout overall. For example, it allows an athlete to run at varying speeds from jogs, to striders, to a full sprint without the constraints of a limited indoor space, unless of course, you practice in an indoor track. In our opinion, it allows the athlete to easily adapt, focus and prepare for competitive pursuits.
If you simply want the athlete to play, then our program is not for you. But if you want your athlete to play better and smarter, then we have the sports training program for you!
NO! There are a myriad of reasons why we don't, but we'll give you two. First, lack of supervision. Most athletes in the weight room are not properly supervised. If there are 20 athletes in the weight room with one trainer, do you really think your athlete will get the necessary attention to do it right? We've witnessed athletes getting injured in the weight room! Second, if weight training is not done properly and without adequate supervision, it can actually inhibit the athlete's physical and sport development!
We use medicine balls and other implements. However, the most any athlete will ever carry is 10 pounds!
We do mostly BODY WEIGHT training only.
YES! We train athletes participating in ANY sport! We've trained basketball and football players, lacrosse players, swimmers, golfers, marathon runners, gymnasts, fencers, etc. We train entire sports teams involved in different sports!
