13 May A Successful Athletic Season Begins in the Off Season
In most cases after a long athletic season a young athlete will stop any type of training until the next season comes around. This can be problematic in two areas, one the athlete will lose most of the fitness they have gained throughout the season and will take a few weeks to regain that fitness. The other problem comes when the next athletic season comes around and intensity is increased without any prior training then the risk of injury is very high.
It is important to do some training during the off season to maintain and possibly increase the current level of fitness to have a successful season. All athletes from all athletic backgrounds can benefit from specific strength and conditioning to maximize their athletic potential. For these reasons we will be having a Fitness Camp at Pro Physical Therapy in Mantachie.
Our program will focus on increasing flexibility, speed, agility, coordination, strength, and jumping ability. Our camp will not be sport specific but is designed to translate to all sports from football players to cheerleaders to cross country runners. It will begin on June 3rd for 3 times per week for 4 weeks. The cost of the Fitness Camp is $60 for the entire 4 weeks and will include a shirt, nutritional information, and how to maximize the benefits of working out through supplementation for ages 12 and up. For more information or to sign up call Pro Physical Therapy at 662-282-4949.
This week we will be beginning our fitness class called Fitness Resolution in Baldwyn on Tuesday and Thursday night’s downtown at Azelea Court. We continue to have our fitness class called Human Performance Training on Tuesday nights at 5:15 and again on Saturday mornings at 11. We also offer nutritional supplements to help you reach your goals, whether your goal is to lose weight, increase energy, or increase athletic performance in a healthy and safe way we can help.
