Sportsmetrics™ is a comprehensive training program which begins with sports injury testing and progresses to a rigorous strengthening regime. Athletes are photographed and videotaped and the footage is analyzed. The training program consists of a dynamic warm-up, plyometric training, strength training, speed and agility training, core stability exercises, and flexibility training. Sportmetrics™ has been shown to increase hamstring strength, speed, agility, abdominal strength, vertical jump height, and reduce the risk of serious knee injuries. The recommendation for the most successful training is 18 sessions. You can sign up for the program on a rolling basis. To secure a space an informed consent form must be completed and the session paid for in advance. See the brochure for more details. Registration is rolling and interested athletes can choose anywhere between 8 to 18 sessions.
