-Track and Field
If you have a team that is interested in training together as a group, this is a great way not only to maximize their athletic development, but also a means to build team unity and cohesiveness. Great teams push each other and work together, and thus athletic performance training will challenge the team to enhance their abilities and overcome adversity collectively. Todd Norman provides intense training for speed, agility, strength and power utilizing state of the art methods and equipment. Thus, your team will work under the direction of a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist, who will customize workouts based on the coach’s feedback, a team evaluation, and the time of year (pre-season vs. in-season). Team training can be provided on-site at our facility, or if desired, Todd may be able to provide the workouts off-site at your location.
SMALL GROUP TRAINING
Small group training is available for 2-5 athletes who want to train together. This is great for athletes of the same sport, level, and team so the training is suited more specifically for their needs. Small Group Training is similar to Private Training, but the cost is significantly lower per athlete. Another key benefit to Small Group training is athletes get to train with their friends and/or teammates, which often times can provide more motivation and commitment.
Some athletes respond better to one-on-one instruction versus being in a group or class setting. For those seeking personal attention and coaching to their specific needs, Todd’s private training packages provide tailored instruction from a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. The benefits of private training also include more detail to an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, and allow for more daily customization and preparation for a specific sport and position. Private training workouts can range anywhere from 30min, 1-hour, 1.5-hour, to 2-hour training sessions, up to 6 days/week. Additionally, athletes will be able to schedule appointments that meet their particular scheduling needs. Once Todd understands your current situation and goals, our he can customize the right training package for you.
