Have you got a young athlete in the family?
Athletic performance is critical to development of a well rounded adult! The skill-set that is learned in a team environment, and the competitive edge that athletes develop over their non-athlete peers is undeniable. For young women as well as young men! According to the Harvard Business Review, more than half of the C-Level female executives in America played college level team sports! Less than 3% played no sports at all. Similar stats exist for men. Undeniably... Athletes become leaders! That leadership skill-set begins young.
Fortunately, here in Florida, the access to high school level athletics is enormous. Our environment allows for year-round athletic seasons, and opportunity. But with opportunity comes a higher level of competition, and a lower level of individual attention from the coaching staff. Success on the playing field or court translates directly to success later in life, but success at the high school level is often limited by lack of access to superior skill training and conditioning.
We at BURN Fitness can help!!
My foundation in fitness is as a CSCS. A CSCS is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. My certification is the same training required to work as a strength coach at the college and professional level! My education centers around performance training, strength, speed, agility, and power. I've worked with everyone from 12-13 year old volleyball players, to professional golfers in their 30s, to competitive athletes into their 60s! The same basic conditioning concepts for football, apply for baseball, tennis, or any other sports. The same basics for "stick speed" translate directly from a baseball bat, to a golf club, to a hockey stick. They only differ in their plane of rotation. Lateral movement, acceleration, deceleration, agility and foot speed is universal. I train it all. Size and strength is critical in many sports. Some athletes have a great skill set, but are just a bit behind in strength and size for their position or level. I can help!
The summer time is a great opportunity for your student athlete to JUMP forward in their abilities and come into next school year at a whole other level!
The summer time is ALSO a great time for your young athlete to slack off, get into trouble, or fall further behind... You choose!
At BURN Fitness we work with adults, looking to get leaner, healthier, and fitter... but we also work with male and female high school and college age clients too! Come talk to us BEFORE school lets out about your young athlete's summer program!
