Seasonal Training

Our philosophy on “Seasonal Training” is the idea of breaking your year up to work on weaknesses and develop the right way.


The Off-Season is the time to gain lean muscle mass, work on strength training and lift weights and build a solid athletic body. This time should emphasize healthy nutrition, weight lifting, and mobility work. The Off-Season should be 3-6 months (longer the better). Healthy Nutrition and Fuel for Performance are emphasized to help make workouts intense and build muscle mass. CHAMPIONS ARE MADE IN THE OFF-SEASON. (Both male & female athletes should have proper Off-Seasons).


The Pre-Season is the time where conditioning should start to be stressed along with speed and agility work. The new added muscle from the Off-Season should be showing in explosive power and speed. You are 6-8 weeks away from tryouts and conditioning will help get you ready physically and mentally to earn you starting position and open your coaches eyes. Healthy Nutrition and Fuel for Performance are emphasized to help make workouts intense and game speed.

In-Season Maintenance

In-Season Maintenance is the time to show your hard work and perform at the elite level. An athlete who uses our season training philosophies will stand out. We know that they have trained smart and outworked their competition. In-Season athletes should still be training. Training should be 1-2 days a week depending on level. Along with training In-Season recovery should be stressed (foam rolling, stretching, and proper warm-ups) daily. Nutrition is the game changer and a serious athlete is going to use it to fuel practices, workouts, and games.
