Kinetic Grit Sports Academy

Each session focuses on strength, power, speed and footwork that will not only build strength but other fundamental sport specific skills. No matter what sport your athlete plays, one thing remains constant…they need to be well balanced in these 11 physical characteristics:

  • Sport Specific Training – Program based on the unique needs of your specific sport.

  • Total Body Strength – Total body strength training that integrates the upper body, lower body, and core into a program that focuses on enhancing functional movements like squatting, hinging, lunging, pushing, and pulling.

  • Explosive Power – Development of vertical, linear, lateral, and rotational explosiveness through the use of plyometrics, jump training, medicine balls, kettlebells, and olympic lifting.

  • Speed and Agility – Training to develop linear speed, lateral speed, change of direction, landing technique, acceleration, and deceleration through speed technique drills and running mechanics instruction.

  • Core Stability – Integration of core stability, strength, and power to maximize movement efficiency and power transfer.

  • Mobility and Flexibility – Development of proper total body mobility through self-myofascial release, foam rolling, stretching, and dynamic movement prep.

  • Endurance – Sport-specific conditioning to enhance quick sprints, long runs, and total game endurance.

  • Injury Prevention – Focus on correcting specific imbalances, enhancing mobility issues, arm care, jumping and landing training.

  • Specificity – systematic performance programming to address individual or team needs

  • Flexibility – progress or regress the program and/or exercises based on an individual’s needs or ability

  • Assessment – Assess and correct exercise technique to ensure proper execution of programming
