Sports Performance Training

Training to perform is essential to improvement.

We are as passionate as you are about optimizing your sports performance. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a high-level athlete, our therapists understand the demands that are placed on an athlete’s body. Through movement screening and physical assessment, the expertise of our therapists and coaches can help you unlock your athletic potential, improve your mobility and movement patterns, and keep you improving while competing injury free.

Strength & Endurance Training

Our strength training program begins by focusing on the athlete’s recovery from in season racing and improving their mobility and movement skills. We assess for symmetry and want to ensure we can improve the level of strength balance form one side of the body to the other. We only stroke in the pool with 1 arm at a time, push our pedals 1 leg at a time and land on 1 foot at a time when running. Lack of symmetry will create the need for compensation by one side over the other and eventually lead to injury. The programming continually evolves through the off season taking athletes through the necessary cycles of training to have them stronger, faster, injury free and ready for their spring summer events.

Speed Training

  • Power
  • Speed
  • Agility

Imperative to optimal performance in ANY sport. Including specific speed and agility training in an athlete’s in and/or off-season training will enhance outcomes and ultimately provide a huge advantage over the competition.

The structured training program conducted by our Certified Speed and Agility coaches is built to enhance:

  • Lateral Acceleration/deceleration
  • Directional and crossover step changes
  • Jumping, hopping, leaping, landing
  • Loading and exploding power

Regardless of court, ice, field or mat, including speed and agility training will reflect to faster, stronger and better performance in sport.

Contact us with questions or to register your athlete or team in our speed and agility programs to complement their training and give them a competitive advantage.

Multi-Sport Training

Want to take next season to a higher level? Our performance training is the perfect program for any athlete from any sport to improve their athletic abilities.

We have divided our Multi- Sport Performance Programs into 2 categories dependent on age. 12-15years old & 16-19years old. This allows the structure to take into special age appropriate training considerations and develop the athlete safely and effectively.

With all our Performance training we utilize movement screens performed by Propel Sports Physical Therapy, which help identify individual athlete limitations and prescribe appropriate mobility programs for them to use in addition with training to prevent injury and ensure maximum results from the training. Having a body that moves efficiently will translate to improved ability to handle the capacity of performance training.

Our program is created specifically to develop the athlete’s physical capacity, strength, speed, agility and power. These aspects of performance translate to improved in sport performance for the upcoming season. Each phase of training is based on scientific research to accommodate the demands of physical sports and include:

General conditioning phase – the goal is fixing any mobility problems, movement patterns, strength imbalances as well as improving work capacity. This phase gets athletes ready for high intensity high volume training cycles

Strength and Power phase – This phase consist of two cycles. The first will focus on strength properly applied for age and sport. The goal of the second cycle is turning the strength gained into power and speed. At the end of this phase the athletes will be stronger, more powerful, faster, more agile and jump higher.

Peaking phase – This cycle is all about your sport. The goal is transferring all the strength and power gains into your sport specific skills. Athletes will master sport specific movements through decreased volume training but increased intensity all geared to peak for pre season testing and tryouts.

No matter what sport your athlete plays, our multi-sport performance training program will result in improved performance on the court/ice/field/stage/ or mat next season!

Hockey Program

Next seasons successes start this offseason. Put in the time to develop the athletic skill, strength, speed and power necessary to be an influence on the ice.

Carefully designed training programs individually tailored to the athlete’s current abilities and future goals. These programs are run by Certified Strength and Conditioning coaches with the expertise to take the athlete to the next level.
Programs are phased over time to specifically develop the athlete most effectively. Each individual athlete is assessed by a corrective exercise specialist to determine current movement ability to address any potential problems and improve effectiveness of the program for each athlete.

General Conditioning and Movement Prep Phase: Building stamina and base strength to handle the demands of higher level training. Proper movement patterns, quality and capacity are the focus.

Strength and Muscle Gain Phase: Weight training is primarily used to improve strength in all related movements. Athletes learn to use the strength in applied ways for hockey, as well as progressed safely for age and ability.

Speed and Power Phase: Now that the athlete is moving efficiently, conditioned and has built strength accordingly, the next phase is to translate those gains into speed and power. This is where the hard work pays off just in time for next season to begin.

“If you have been watching my stories at all, you might have noticed I have been spending a lot of time at Propel Performance Institute training with Elevate Sports Performance and receiving treatment with Kayla Clarke and Laurie Plouffe at Propel Sports Physical Therapy. I am so grateful my friend took me to my first class. Not only do I get a killer workout but I also feel confident in my form and execution because they really take the time to break it down for me when teaching new techniques. I have trained with athletes, professionals, moms, and people of all ages and abilities there. On a more personal note, they really do care about their clients and have truly gone the extra mile, when I was down they helped me up. PS- this is not a paid ad, just a very pleased and thankful client sharing.”
