The Ultimate Goal

Boys Level One

Youth Sports

Ages: 7- 18

Program Dates: Jun 17 2019 - Aug 21 2019

Creating stronger, faster, and more agile athletes, requires attention to the body itself. Playing the sport has its benefits, but if your body is not completely equipped to perform the demands of your sport, you will not get a full return on your efforts. ULTIMATE GOAL is designed to strength the core and joint muscles, improve flexibility, and improve speed, agility, and explosiveness. It also strengthens the body to help improve technique and prevent injuries that plague our youth sports. The ?more is better mentality? is hurting our young athletes, so ULTIMATE GOAL focuses on creating a stronger, flexible, and balanced body! This program is a twelve week, two days per week training with Physical Therapist testing the athlete from start to finish so you can see the improvements in your athlete.
