Professional Athletes

“The greatest medicine is to show people how not to need it” – Hippocrates

What Types of Professional Athletes does The System Work With?

Rookie Players

Prospective athletes are a risk proposition. In most cases it takes roughly 2-3 years to see real talent coming through. Learn how to enhance physical performance in less time, with less effort, and with less injury potential.

Veteran Players

Extending an athlete’s career makes sense financially. With proper training, conditioning, and diet, peak conditioning can be maintained longer. In addition, injuries may be less impactful with faster healing.

Under-productive Players

Not meeting expectations is not always due to a lack of skill or talent.

“Targeted hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard”

Undiagnosed or hidden injuries can directly impact performance and impact long-term success. Define weak links and overcome them. A change in training and injury treatment can often unlock an athlete’s full potential.

“The chain is only as strong as the weakest link”

Determine possible causative factors that may be contributing towards decreased performance.

Chronically Injured Players

Chronic injuries can mare greatness. By addressing the root cause of injuries, a more effective training and conditioning program can be created. Self-regeneration methods can be introduced in order to accelerate a return to competition.

Non-injured Individual Athletes

Who just wishes to maintain/improve their health & well-being via learning how to enhance physical performance in less time, with less effort & with less injury potential.

 
Benefits from The System's training:
  • Refined training that addresses specific strengths and weaknesses
  • Focus is on developing athleticism in relation to their chosen sport
  • Develop an understanding of the difference between building muscle and “bulking up”
  • Learn intermediate regeneration techniques
  • Development foundation of correct bio-mechanics of all movement patterns (Running, Jumping, Pushing, Pulling, Throwing, Catching) coordination and general athleticism (i.e. Physical intelligence)
  • Strength training preparation through the utilization of body-weight exercises and medicine ball exercises
  • Develop good posture and Ideal muscle tension patterns that naturally foster efficient movement
  • Lower injury risk

Performance exercise focused on developing:

Speed & Acceleration
  • Speed is a skill that can be taught, therefore a majority of athletes can improve their speed
  • Any athlete or physically active person can benefit from speed training 
  • Exposure to maximal sprint speed develops speed, but sometimes you need to go back to go forward, in order to reduce the risk of injury by establishing good sprinting technique via running & general conditioning drills, as well as proper regeneration  
  • Sprint-specific drills can assist athletes to develop a better understanding and efficiency, as well as a ‘feel’ for the technical elements required to sprint

“Speed is movement & sensation in reverse”

  • Speed training when done correctly & in the right amount, is one of the best forms of exercise & improves all other physical qualities such as:
    • Strength
    • Explosive power
    • Co-ordination
    • Pliability (i.e. Flexibility + Mobility + Stability + Elasticity)
    • Agility
    • Acceleration
    • Proper running & sprint biomechanics
  • The System’s Speed Training Program is based on tried & trued methods that have produced results in less time, with less effort & with less injury potential
  • The System’s program is trusted by teams & various individual athletes ranging from football to baseball, to basketball, to hockey & many other sports
  • A sound speed training program should address:
    • Foot & ankle strength & mobility
    • Hip & leg strength &power
    • Mid-section & lower back strength, flexibility & endurance
    • Technique 
    • Overall strength 
    • Power development
    • Range of Motion
    • Pliability (i.e. Flexibility + Mobility + Stability + Elasticity)
    • Inter & Intramuscular Co-ordination
    • Bone strength & density
  • A key, often overlooked, element w.r.t speed training is the application of both Monitoring of Training Response & Regeneration methodologies, hence sometimes the best speed comes not from sprinting, but from soft-tissue flexibility & mobility sessions
  • The System’s program provides a high-quality coaching, conditioning & regeneration methodology, that is proactive, autonomous & utilizing progressive coaching methodology, that instills a strong work ethic, discipline, dedication & direction needed to achieve high performance
I. Speed Training for Speed-Power Sports
  • Speed Training ideal for athletes who run and perform agile movements such as:
    • Football
    • Hockey
    • Lacrosse
    • Tennis
    • Ball Hockey
    • Soccer
    • Basketball
    • Baseball to name a few
  • Our Speed Training Program is beneficial to any athlete whose main sport requires fast bursts of speed, power and speed-endurance.  

  • Our program is focused on increasing explosiveness and dynamic movement to enable athletes to move faster with less effort.  
  • We also focus on strength, movement and balance to ensure a well-rounded training program for your athlete.  
  • Speed Training is one of the most important aspects that should be incorporated for all athletes who serve to benefit from it. 
  • Speed Training involves the increase in muscle power through both speed, technical guidance and increased range of motion. 
  • As athletes enter each stage of Speed Training, the exercises and drills become easier with greater explosive force behind each repetition.  
  • By improving the amount of force that muscles can produce and accept from the ground, athletes will be on the right path to running faster, jumping higher and changing direction quicker. 
  • Speed Training drills increase agility and speed with specific movements and sprinting techniques. 
  • Over time, the muscles ability to generate power and increase in fast twitch muscle fibres increases over time. 
  • By using the use of weighted resistance or speed enhancers to force fast twitch muscles into overdrive, Speed training increases the athlete’s ability to perform well. 
  • Through exercises like sprinting and agility drills involving jumping, bounding or hopping motions, athletes gain experience and muscle memory that mimic movement that take place during a game and/or practice situation.
II. Team Sport Speed Training
  • Our programs target plyometric, interval, speed and strength training to provide explosive strength and endurance training while providing injury prevention strategies.  

  • Our Team Sport-Specific Training Programs offer customized programs for your team designed to improve your team’s strength, endurance, explosiveness, speed and agility.

  • Same as our Individual Speed-Power Program, but catering to a group setting.
III. Learn to Train & Train to Learn Sprint & Running Program
  • Our Train to Learn how to Run Program is for all of those athletes out there of any ability and skill that want to learn how to run more efficiently and stay fit.
  • Our program will teach you all that you need to know about running to get you ready for your goals.
