Being fit and building strength are key aspects of performing at higher levels in baseball or any other sport. Slammers offers Strength and Performance training to help our athletes get quicker, faster and stronger.
Strength Training needs to be a part of every athlete’s training regimen! Slammers Strength will design and guide each athlete through a training program designed for their age, gender and sport. We have a program for all athletes no matter the age. Strength & Conditioning can be beneficial for athletes of all ages and abilities.
The majority of athletes NEED A TRAINER to design a program for their sport and for MOTIVATION! All of our programs will offer some, if not all, of the following:
Slammers Performance trains athletes of all sports. We have trained male and female athletes that play all sports. We have trained athletes from elementary age all the way up to the professional level.
Strength training is a type of physical exercise specializing in the use of resistance to induce muscular contraction, which builds the strength, anaerobic endurance, size of skeletal muscles and bone density.
Core training is simply performing specific exercises to strengthen the muscles of your core. In general, your core is all of the muscles of your midsection. This includes muscles in the front, sides, and back of your midsection, as well as many muscles that you can’t see.
BALANCE & STABILITY
Balance is your ability to control your body without movement against gravity. Stability is your ability to control your body during movement
Olympic-style weightlifting, or Olympic weightlifting, often simply referred to as weightlifting, is an athletic discipline in the modern Olympic program in which the athlete attempts a maximum-weight single lift of a barbell loaded with weight plates.
SPORT SPECIFIC EXERCISES
Some examples include Olympic lifts, jump squats, heavier sled towing, and various kettlebell swings and exercises. Specific strength exercises- These exercises attempt to provide power improvement in a way that is very specific to the required technique of an athlete.
Functional fitness exercises train your muscles to work together and prepare them for daily tasks by simulating common movements you might do at home, at work or in sports. For example, a squat is a functional exercise because it trains the muscles used when you rise up and down from a chair or pick up low objects.
AGE APPROPRIATE EXERCISES
There are a lot of different types of exercises and not all of them are appropriate for all age groups. We make sure the exercises your child does are appropriate for their age to reduce the risk of injury.
All of our programs will be designed with the age and experience of the athlete in mind!
Speed, Agility and Quickness Training
Not every athlete can be an Olympic sprinter, but each athlete can get faster! There are 3 things needed to improve your speed. You need to improve your stride length, stride frequency and leg strength/power. Slammers Strength will help you get faster!!! Our training is done at our facilities located in Lakewood and Englewood. Each student will be instructed by a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist.
