What is “Strength & Conditioning”?   This isn’t a fad.  This is real training that works.  You will get stronger, leaner, faster, and feel the benefits of performance based training.  Every college and professional sports team has a Strength & Conditioning Department.  The job of the Strength & Conditioning Coach is to build the workouts for each team relevant to the demands of the sport and lead the teams through those workouts.  Athletic based training is different than fitness.  It isn’t based on fads or whats in at that moment.  It’s based on years of research and real world application.  Training systems are tested in a lab setting and published in academic journals.  We don’t build workouts based on the latest fad.  We build them based on what works.  You don’t have to be an athlete to train with us, but you will feel like one after you do!
