Poor Landing Mechanics Leads to Injuries

Injury Prevention and Evaluation

INJURY PREVENTION Is part of all programs 

All programs at PowerAthlete (Adult and Athlete) include injury prevention training for Shoulders, Knees and Lower Back/Core

Estimates are that there are 200,000 ACL injuries alone in the United States each year. Estimated cost for treatment exceeds a billion dollars annually

Female athletes are exposed to higher stresses at the knee joint due to the structure of their hips and knees in relation to male athletes. As a result, female athletes must make more effort to ensure that they can move in mechanically efficient ways. They also require an emphasis on developing their posterior chain (low back, glutes, and hamstrings) to help with stabilization of their knees.

Studies show the techniques to slow down, stop and land, when taught and practiced are as high as 80%-90% effective in reducing the chance of injuries. Across genders, injury prevention and increased performance are built on proper deceleration and landing techniques.


What Makes Us Different

  • Our training staff has an average of 20 years experience in strength and conditioning and sports medicine.  We have sat for, and passed all of the current top tier certifications in the field of strength and conditioning, fitness and sports medicine.
  • Small Group Size = High level of coaching. Small session sizes allows our coaching staff to instruct and supervise our athletes very closely. We do not herd athletes through cookie cutter programs and spit them out.  Programs are customized and scaled to each of the individuals in the small group by their coach leader.
  • Specialized programming.  Regardless if you are an D1 bound football player, an adult tennis player trying to improve your game, or a post physical therapy ACL patient, your program will be thoroughly periodized, programmed and designed for you. Nothing is random about our training sessions.
  • Not an open gym.  All clients/athletes follow a specifically designed program for their needs.  
  • Our Adult weight/HIIT programming uses heart rate monitoring to produce high levels of post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) which is the key to extended periods of increased metabolism and fat loss
  • We offer clients a community, not a gym.  We offer a place for motivated, like-minded individuals to train and reach goals together.
