The same principles involved in the rehabilitation of patients with injuries apply in performance enhancement and durability in athletics. When an athlete defaults to ineffective positions and movement patterns, it has a direct correlation on muscle output. The goal of this class is to improve an athlete’s performance by improving range of motion and stability, creating optimal movement patterns and decrease injury risk by delaying fatigue. Our exclusive program runs for five weeks, each week’s training will focus around a different movement-related topic and how it relates to CrossFit.
