Next LEVEL 24 Strength and conditioning program has two primary goals. The first is to improve athletic performance, which usually means improving athletes’ speed, strength, and power (although specifics vary according to athlete). Coach BJ will develop systematic training programs for student athletes, which includes teaching proper lifting techniques, supervising and motivating athletes as they work out, and assessing their performance before and after the program. The nature of the conditioning program will vary depending on whether the sport is in season or not. During the off-season, conditioning programs can be quite rigorous. In season, conditioning programs tend to focus more on maintaining athletes’ conditioning than on improving it. The second primary goal is to reduce athletic injuries. To that end, conditioning coaches often design regimens to strengthen body parts that are prone to injury in a particular sport. Our goal is to keep student athletes healthy and out there competing. Perfecting our student athlete’s craft not only builds confidence but has a overall positive impact on their lives.
