HOW MUCH WEIGHT ONE PRESSES IN THE GYM HAS NEVER BEEN AN INDICATOR OF WINNING A SUPERBOWL, WIMBLEDON, IRONMAN, NBA TITLE, SOCCER CHAMPIONSHIP, SWIMMING, GOLF, WORLD SERIES OR ANY SPORT BESIDES WEIGHTLIFTING. WE ARE PERFORMANCE TRAINING NOT EGO TESTING.
"The definition of “CORE” as defined by:
“A central and often foundational part usually distinct from the enveloping part by a difference in nature”.
and http://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/british/core: "The MOST IMPORTANT or most basic part of something"
In the case of the human being…our MIND is the aforementioned. Without it, we are an immobile skin-bag of various tissues and bones. What most in the "fitness industry" call "core" is the midsection! It has no more importance than its connecting parts… "TRAIN IT ALL!" Especially the matter that matters most- Grey matter.
Because on the field is where you earn your rights to Scholarships (for students), Bigger paychecks (for professionals) and better performances for every athlete. This program prides itself on providing less injuries for our clients on the field, greater balance/stability, strength development and flexibility in connective tissues and overall body awareness for quicker reaction.
These are not given for just participating, They are earned through sacrifice when no one is watching.
Unlike most facilities, we select our students. We must fit the student, as the student must also fit us. We are not the TYPICAL GYM or training complex! We require our students to be mentally and physically suited to train with us, IT IS NOT ONE'S PHYSICAL CONDITIONING BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY WE SEEK AN UNRELENTING MINDSET. We can only fill an EMPTY CUP (open mind), so be ready to learn.
There are a variety of gyms that focus on FUN! That is NOT us! We are about precision and detail in movement. THE THRILL OF VICTORY IS OUR REWARD.
The belief that if a little is good then more is better, is the issue with weight training today. The EGO has infected the path to better performance. There is a balance to be achieved where some is enough and more becomes less! The best chefs understand this concept, the recipe for better performance is the same. 1 pound too much and you're too slow one pound too little and your too weak. We help find the balance for your body

Learning proper technique leads to alignment in many different areas of the body and develops a stronger neural chain. the EGO and discussing amount of weight is blinding the truth of body development.
We believe that the weight training for better body performance is based on control, Neuromuscular connection, precision and desire. "A bullet from a gun makes no distinction between practice and combat" Miyamoto Musashi

"They call it coaching but it is teaching. You do not just tell them...you show them the reasons." Vince Lombardi
Its all in the details and understanding the WHY of what you are doing.
Blindly following a routine and not understanding the purpose of each move and the muscles that should be engaged is foolish. We provide the reason for a move so it may be applied mentally and can be better visualized by the athlete. This allows for individual focus on a sport and a mental response to that sport is recognized by the muscle for a more reactive performance on the court or field of play.
We create a variety of body types! We strive to make our students: lighter, stronger, bigger, faster, adaptable more durable and intuitive with less maintenance for optimal performance.
Each sport requires an optimal body type to perform at it's max. We tailor the weighs and its frequency, poundage and intensity for the body that will most effectively bring you the win.

The focus on power moves in and of themselves, not to mention lack of proper technique, is reckless. Using it as a primary developer for the body overall is a sad state of affairs for today's athlete and their longevity and performance threshold. Power moves without a concerted effort to develop stronger stabilizers, connective tissues and proper flexibility, is a recipe for unforeseen injury.

"The Japanese master Nan-in gave audience to a professor of philosophy. Serving tea, Nan-in filled his visitor's cup, and kept pouring. The professor watched the overflow until he could restrain himself no longer: "Stop! The cup is over full, no more will go in." Nan-in said: "Like this cup, you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen (the "WAY" method) unless you first empty your cup”?
"You have come to an even more dangerous person than Nan-in, because an empty cup won't do; the cup has to be broken completely. Even empty, if you are there, then you are full. Even emptiness fills you. If you feel that you are empty you are not empty at all, you are there. Only the name has changed: now you call yourself emptiness. The cup won't do at all; it has to be broken completely. Only when you are not can the tea (way) be poured into you, only when you are not is there no need really to pour the tea into you. When you are not the whole existence begins pouring, the whole existence becomes a shower from every dimension, from every direction. When you are not, the divine is."
(And the way is revealed)
