OPTI Youth Athletes

Posted: September 14, 2011 in General

We just finished up a great summer with our youth athletes here at OPTI. Although we were sad to see them go back to school, we were honored and humbled to have been a part of their development. Our youth athlete program is comprehensive in nature and includes assessing and correcting movement dysfunction, strategies for proper warmup and activation, power training such as olympic lifts, kettlebell training, plyometrics and rotational power, complete strength training, sport specific conditioning, movement skills, recovery and performance nutrition. We utilize not only our highly sought after training methods, but our state of the art equipment including the Keiser Performance Trainers and the Woodway Force and Curve (self powered treadmills). By the end of the summer these young athletes were proficient in all aspects of the OPTI comprehensive performance enhancement system.

Every single one of these athletes made incredible gains this summer and accomplished some pretty impressive personal records. Some of them came to us with significant injuries that we helped to rehabilitate with our world class physical therapist, Karen Johnson, and massage therapist Chris Ruane. They range in age from 14-20 and have such wonderful attitudes and work ethic. These kids are nothing short of amazing, and we can’t wait to see them in December for winter break!
