EDGE SPORTS PERFORMANCE

Was founded with the core mission of transforming the lives of aspiring athletes through highly effective training and mentoring. Our goal has always been to make a significant, lasting, and positive impact on every single person who walks through our doors. We offer the best possible training experience for every athlete regardless of your age or playing level.

Our methodology links sport science with applied physiology, strength training and nutrition in one comprehensive program

Our programs designed and directed by our certified coaches from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). The world’s leading organization in the field of sport conditioning.

Performance Pyramid

Whether you aim to play in the Olympics someday, or just want the fitness to play with your kids and grandkids, your fitness and training needs to be built layer by layer. Think of your fitness levels as the base that health, vibrance, and athletic performance is built upon. That performance has 4 levels that need to be stacked on top of each other. The most general level is at the bottom, and the most specific is at the pinnacle.

Foundational habits: At the base of the pyramid are our foundational habits; sleep, stress management, healthy nutrition, and a growth mindset. Addressing the foundational habits allows us to provide results where other programs fail.
Quality Movement: By ensuring every individual has no flexibility limitations or strength imbalances as determined by a Functional Movement Screen we reduce injury risk by correcting movement issues before injuries occur. Staying injury free means you can train harder, and perform better in sport and life.
Capacity: Establishing a stronger, faster, more powerful, hard athletic body will enable you to do all the activities you love without your body holding you back.
Skills: Athletes need to be able to display the skills of their sport at a very high level, but this can only happen if they have a solid base to stand on. It’s only when we have a strong base to stand on, that we can extend ourselves towards excellence.

What holds you back:
The problem is that it’s incredibly easy for that pyramid to become inverted, and in the pursuit of greater skills and fancy fitness training methods, health and movement quality get left behind…but you and I know that they will ALWAYS catch up with you eventually. If you don’t address the base of the pyramid as well as the top, injuries and performance plateaus occur.
No two people need the exact same training program. By taking a ‘client centered’ approach rather than a ‘training program centered’ approach we get better results for our clients by tailoring fitness solutions to your needs. Book a consultation today to find what your limiting factor is. Our skilled coaching staff can help you determine which of the four levels are the weakest link to your fitness and performance levels, and address them promptly.
