The Four F's
Form & Fitness
What an athlete puts in their body is their fuel, as the saying goes: “garbage in, garbage out”. Exceptional naturally gifted athletes can get away with consuming terrible content, but it is hindering them from living their best life and performing up to their potential.
At Impact Sports, we do whatever we can to equip an athlete to understand and excel in this area.
Form & Fitness
Most trainers only focus on this area.
Another word for “form” could be “technique”; we have a deep understanding of the mechanics of basketball movements: shooting, dribbling, defense (on and off the ball), setting and running off screens, boxing out, etc. We also understand and are able to help athletes correctly perform workout exercises. Practicing the correct form in every context is important for an athlete to compete at a high level and stay healthy.
Keeping in great physical shape is another pillar of an athlete’s life. The goal is not only to be “bigger, faster, stronger”, but to work out in ways that are sustainable. Injury prevention is at the core of what we offer, which can be achieved through our strength training that also enhances balance and flexibility.
Whether or not an athlete has dreams to play in high school, college, or professionally, we want to help them consider their future and make decisions that they will be thankful they made. Our vision is to be a trusted and helpful resource for an athlete and their family through every stage of their life and every major decision they make along the way. We also have partnerships with people who specialize in areas of financial planning/education and personal growth.
The last F is to remind the family/athlete that the athlete should be having FUN!!! You may be thinking, “Okay…you lost me there…” 😂
Let us explain:
An athlete can be doing everything else right in their life, but if they aren’t having fun, they will get burnt out and their career will end early because they don’t even want to play anymore; it has transformed from their passion into a grueling job. They may even have had high hopes of playing collegiately or professionally, and they may have been making great strides in that direction, but if they get burnt out and lose that passion because of being overworked, those around them just did them a HUGE disservice. Athletes are people, not machines. It is important that they are enjoying their sport(s).
