The phases of the Long Term Program
Our programs are broken down into phases to ensure that full development is achieved and coaching is suitable and age appropriate. The impact of proper training is our end goal as certified coaches and fitness professionals. The serious athlete and parents have to understand that this is a process that takes time. We have had exceptional results with athletes that accept this as part of the journey. Strength training and results are produced through hard work, healthy habits, and consistency. There are no shortcuts or quick fixes!
Movement Foundation Building (one month)
For newer athletes and beginner clients. We work to create a foundation and education on proper weight training techniques, form, and help understand the process. This phase of training addresses any muscular imbalances, mobility issues, or anything that may hinder an athlete’s progress. Movement is something that should not be overlooked. Having a strong foundation will lead to serious positive results over time, keep athletes healthy and safe, and emphasize training smart. This is the first and most important phase as part of the Long-Term Athletic Development process.
Total Performance (3 month)
Total Performance focuses on strength development and an emphasis on conditioning – speed & agility. To perform at the elite level athletes need to have the strength to move and muscle makes the body move faster. Many youth athletes have quickness but do not have the technique to turn that into pure speed and explosiveness. Total performance brings it all together.
This second phase is part of the Long-Term Athletic Development (LTAD) process
Long Term Development (6 month)
Long-Term Athletic Development (LTAD) seeks to infuse practicality and science into the preparation of not just young athletes but also of healthy citizens, who learn the value of slow, steady improvement with the end goal in mind from the onset. And it is through this LTAD process that individuals acquire the skills, habits, and mental strategies necessary to become lifelong athletes well suited and well balanced to apply their broad repertoire of motor ability in any number of familiar or novel situations.

When an athlete is not working in their competitive season this is considered their “off season”. This is the time when they work on their skills but are not expected to be practicing weekly or having real competition days. This is the prime time for intensive strength training and focus on healthy nutritional coaching in order to make serious strength gains, work on weak areas, and make real progress. Athletes should be training 3 days a week depending on experience, level and age.
Two months before the actual competitive sport season begins the training mentality shifts from power and strength to explosiveness therefore implementing more conditioning work is needed. The athlete needs to begin prepping for team tryouts and will need to be at the top of their game. This is the opportunity for the athlete to show the coaches that he/she has put in the work in the off-season. Athletes can still be training (2-3 days per week) at this point along with working on their skill set for their particular sport.
This time of year should be dedicated to showcasing their strength gains, confidence and skill out on the field, court, mat, pool, track etc. During this time the athlete should still be weight training (1day per week) with the goal of maintaining the strength built in the off season at B.E.A.T. Scheduling for IN-SEASON athletes should NOT be made on game days or after team practices. IN-SEASON sessions are to be on OFF days from his/her team obligations.
Private Training is offered as 2-on-1 & 1-on-1

Take your collegiate training experience to the next level
More and more collegiate athletes are beginning to take advantage of opportunities in their respective off-seasons to work on refining their specific sport skills. The off-season is a great time to make significant strides in strength, speed, power and agility.
At Believe Elite Athletic Training we work with collegiate athletes by preparing them for their upcoming seasons. Our programs are designed to help take their physical skills to the next level. We will focus on speed and movement while enhancing your collegiate strength program in order to maximize your results during your school breaks. Our goal is to help our college athletes build speed, strength, power, quickness, increase mobility and focus on injury prevention in order to help them to achieve their maximum potential.
Benefits of Off Season Training:
Maintaining 50-60% Fitness Takes Less Effort Than Starting From Scratch!
When the training program is removed or put on hold, physiological adaptations begin to reverse back to pre-training levels. This effect is known as detraining. Therefore maintaining a consistent level of volume and intensity will prevent any chance of detraining and will keep our athletes physically ready to begin the next season strong.
Regeneration Following the Competitive Season
Competitive sports can place unequal loads on different parts of the body, for example one leg or arm is used more than the other. A good off-season training program will address these imbalances helping to prevent both acute and longer term chronic injuries. This is achieved by including the 3 major types of training; Cardiovascular Training, Resistance Training and Flexibility Training.
Collegiate athletes typically train at B.E.A.T during the summer and winter breaks.
