Development is a Process, Not a Single Workout.
At FYX Sports Training, we believe that athletic success depends on a strategic, personal process. For each of our athletes, we begin by assessing their physical condition from their posture to their movements, identifying strengths and weaknesses throughout the body, and identifying any inhibitors to neuromuscular efficiency.
And We Don’t Stop There…
Then, we develop a personalized training plan to correct the muscular imbalances and return the body to optimal neuromuscular control enabling the athlete to experience maximum performance. Our training plans come in a wide range of packages that can also incorporate regular prehab, rehab, physical therapy, nutrition instruction, and other guidance to help athletes achieve their peak physical potential.
