Athletic Performance Development
Fitness for Health now offers you a unique program that is unlike any other athletic performance development program anywhere, EDGEtraining!
Most athletes only train to improve their speed, strength, agility, and conditioning. That just isn’t enough. Our one-on-one and group children’s athletic performance development program, EDGE training, helps athletes at all levels develop the skills that give them an EDGE on—and off—the field, including:
Gross and fine motor skills, balance, and proprioception – proprioception is the ability to innately sense your body’s position, movement, and spatial orientation, even when you’re not looking. Examples of this are running through an agility ladder without having to look down at your feet, catching a fly ball without looking at your hand, or being able to crossover a basketball from one hand to the other without looking at your arms.
Mental processing, motor planning, and motor sequencing—the ability to take information, process it, plan your next actions, and implement those actions. The goal is to improve your reaction time, and your ability to take timely and appropriate actions.
Visual motor skills—like peripheral vision and efficient visual information processing—to enhance the mental connection between what you see and how your body reacts to it.
Our EDGE training program uses the same innovative exergaming equipment that many professional athletic teams, athletes, and racecar drivers count on to give them the ultimate edge in competition. Learn more.
