Sports Performance

Participation in sports as a child can play a significant role in the emotional and physical development process. Studies show that children who play sports have higher levels of self-confidence, are more successful in school, have solid relationships with peers and coaches, positively interact more regularly with parents and siblings, and are more likely to volunteer. Therefore, encouraging children to play sports is a positive way to interact with your children and help them feel more fulfilled.

At In Motion Fitness in Cornelius, Mooresville, and Davidson, NC we offer training and education for improvement of youth sports performance. This program includes information from experienced and diverse coaches who are certified to teach. As participants sign up, the coaches will evaluate skill levels and put each individual in the appropriate training program to produce excellent results. The first step in the process involves a detailed assessment along with testing to encourage and fulfill youth participants in the sports that they play.

Each youth sports performance training group has a maximum of 12 participants, which allows for more one-on-one attention and coaching. Our coaches will teach your young athletes about the importance of good nutrition, injury prevention, and the emotional component of sports participation, along with a physical program that strengthens muscles and improves performance. Our youth sports performance program is geared toward children ages 8-11, both male and female. It is a great introduction to other training programs that can help children achieve success in their lives, both on and off the field or court.
The use of computrainer training allows an athlete or coach to take the guess work out of bike training and racing. When paired up with the athlete’s own bike and our computer, the computrainer can both measure and control the power that the athlete is using to to turn the wheel. In order for a triathlete or cyclist to become faster on the bike, they must train to increase the power that they are able to sustain over a period of time. Using the computrainers at IMF, we can measure the athlete’s current ability to produce power, create a document containing training zones for each athelete, and set up interval based workouts to increase power.
Endurance training is a method of exercise used to improve aerobic conditioning for all skill levels, from the recreationist to the fitness enthusiast or the beginner athlete to your Olympic competitor. Endurance training and personalized coaching is available for running, cycling, duathlon, and triathlon. Each participant will have a full analysis of form and efficiency, instructions on improving, instructions for race day, optimizing nutrition for performance, interactive training schedules, and plyometric workouts to improve power and speed.
