Why Youth Sports Trainer's FUNCTIONAL CORE is a MUST HAVE for EVERY athlete!

You'll Become a More Powerful Athlete

A strong core enables athletes to safely and efficiently transfer power between the lower and upper body for  actions like throwing, kicking, running, and jumping.

You'll Improve Your Ability to Compete and Win Against Contact

Having the strength and ability to properly brace your core is crucial to both performance and injury prevention in contact sports.

You'll Improve Your Coordination and Balance

Rarely are athletes on two feet and in a stable position while exerting force. Your core is the foundation for the rest of your body and your sense of balance depends on a well-trained core.

You'll Reduce Your Risk for Injuries

Athletes rely on a strong and supportive trunk to transfer energy. A core that has been trained functionally will decrease the probability of low-back injuries and deceleration injuries of lower extremities—such as anterior cruciate ligament (knee ACL) injuries.
