We achieve results through a process of Evaluation, Instruction, and Programming.

Evaluation

We evaluate our athletes on a daily basis in terms of movement, strength, flexibility, speed, and endurance. Based on this evaluation as well as client input, we are constantly developing a customized plan to address needs, develop strengths and improve weaknesses.

Instruction

Every client receives individual attention in proper form in order to ensure safety, efficiency, and efficacy. Proper instruction and coaching ensures results and keeps athletes safe. Our world-class instructors have taught thousands of athletes the proper mechanics of squats, presses, deadlifts, and Olympic style weightlifting. We employ a strategy of developing sound mechanics, maintaining consistency, and increasing intensity. This approach keeps athletes safe and produces results.

Customized Programming

Choose to have an existing training regiment implemented in a safe, fun, and coached environment, or have a custom plan developed, which caters to your needs. Strength, endurance, stamina, power, speed, coordination, agility, and balance can all be targeted for improvement all while developing an athlete’s overall fitness. We are available to implement programming either at your chosen site, or at our facility, CrossFit Park City. We offer programs ranging from three introductory sessions to ‘in’ and ‘off’ season strength and conditioning programs. Instruction in basic movements (squats, presses, and deadlifts) as well as specialty movements (Olympic style weightlifting) are also available.

FAQ

Q: Will weight training stunt my child’s growth?

A: No!

“Fears that resistance training would injure the growth plates of youths are not supported by scientific reports or clinical observations, which indicate that the mechanical stress placed on the developing growth plates from resistance exercise, or high strain eliciting sports such as gymnastics or weightlifting, may be beneficial for bone formation and growth.”

Q: Should girls lift weights?

A: YES!

Did you know that young female athletes have an increased risk of ACL injury?

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention more than 46,000 female athletes age 19 and younger experienced a sprain or strain of the ACL in 2006.
  • Nearly 30,000 of the injuries required reconstructive surgery.
  • Overall, girls are 8 times more likely to suffer an ACL injury than boys. [1]
  • As many as 70% of ACL injuries involve little or no contact with the other player.[1]
  • At the age of 14 years, girls have 5 times higher rates of ACL tears than boys.

“Well-supervised, multifaceted resistance training programmes have been shown to reduce abnormal biomechanics (eg. increased knee valgus landing) that manifest during adolescence, and appear to decrease injury rates in female athletes.”
