The most effective way to improve your performance!

What is the Center for Athletic Performance?
Center for Athletic Performance, known as CAP, is a sport specific training program designed to provide a complete strength and conditioning program for athletes. CAP focuses on all aspects of sport performance including: speed, strength, agility, flexibility, balance, power and reaction time. We use various training modalities to improve athletic performance including strength training, plyometric training, nutrition, stretching, and education. All of our instructors are certified personal trainers that specialize in sport specific training and have safety as a primary goal. Because we feel strongly about the need for individual attention, we limit all of our group classes in size. Most classes will have no more than 5 athletes per instructor. Our program is driven by the motto of sports performance enhancement in a safe, challenging, and fun environment.

The Program

Comprehensive Athletic Performance Assessment: CAP programs include an extensive performance assessment to test all components of fitness (muscle strength, muscle endurance, cardiovascular capacity, body composition, and flexibility) and sport specific components (power, speed, agility, balance, coordination and reaction time). Tests such as vertical jump, 40-yard dash, 20-yard pro agility shuttle, bench press, grip strength, cardiovascular treadmill test and sit-ups enable CAP trainers to identify weaknesses and design an effective routine. After the assessment is conducted, a one-on-one consultation will be included to review testing results.

Athletic Performance Training: At the core of our sports performance training program are the weekly training sessions. High intensity sport-specific training will supplement an athlete’s existing routine to work on all aspects of performance. All training sessions begin with a dynamic warm up, progress to plyometric, agility and strength training and conclude with a cool down. Injury prevention, safety, and education will be the cornerstone of all training sessions and reinforced throughout each session.

Sport Training Consultation: Feedback is essential to an athlete’s success which is why athletes are required to complete sport training consultations. These one-on-one meetings give trainers and athletes a chance to discuss goals, performance, time management, updates and improvements made over the course of training sessions.
