Wherever pain is present, there is dysfunction. Our coaches work to correct these dysfunctions.
Athletic Training System
This program prepares athletes for the extreme forces they are subjected to while on the court or field. We train our athletes to withstand these forces through development of power, strength, agility and proper movement patterns. Our athletic goals are long-term, and we focus on the “whole” athlete and develop training protocols to keep them in the game.

Understanding the Movement of Sports
At Athletic Foundations, we understand the movement of sports and how the nature of many court and field athletics can lead to muscular imbalances. These things normally go unnoticed until the athlete experiences pain – intermittent or chronic. Wherever pain is present, there is dysfunction. Our coaches work to correct these dysfunctions to help alleviate pain, as well as correct musculoskeletal imbalances that may lead to injury.
We also understand the significant biomechanical forces placed on the muscles, tendons, ligaments and skeletal system during workouts or games. We believe with proper training the body has a remarkable ability to withstand these forces by rapidly producing forces of its own through proper movement patterns. Our athletes learn proper techniques to not only accelerate with greater velocity, but we also train them to decelerate. Forceful deceleration must occur for an athlete to quickly change running directions. This same powerful force must be generated by the athlete when jumping and landing. In the world of biomechanics, this is called Ground Reaction Force, and it is this force that is often associated with injuries. Athletes are subjected to far greater forces during deceleration than during acceleration, thus they must be ready to absorb those forces in an effort to reduce risk of injury– and – yes, we have the experience to make athletes run faster, jump higher and hit harder.
