An individualistic practice performed in a large group setting. This class allows each athlete a self-assessment system allowing you the ability to monitor your own body for dysfunction that may be causing pain, loss of performance, or that may be putting you at an increased chance of injury. Kinstretch is a movement enhancement system that
develops maximum body control, flexibility and USABLE ranges of motion. We aim to capture your passive range of motion and make it active – making you a more capable human being for whatever test you put your body up against.
BELLS & ERGS
Sport specific training has become more important at earlier ages in all youth sports. Kids are specializing in sports and specific positions which doesn’t allow them to develop skills outside that specific sport. Throwing, swinging, hitting, skating, shooting, etc. Even off-season training is focused on improving precision in these skills. The one thing that is constantly overlooked is strength training. If athletes can improve their movement patterns, muscle function, strength, and power outside of their sport – they will improve all aspects INSIDE their chosen sport. Even for kids without athletic pursuits, understanding the importance of strength training and general health is
extremely important for a better quality of life.
