Dallas, TX, September 20, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Sports Specific Training is becoming more and more popular at clubs and organizations around the country. Although sports-specific training at most places is aimed at professional athletes or high school and college athletes, at The Fitness Club the sports specific training is also for those who just want to improve their fitness routines. Sports Specific Training clients often are former high school and college athletes who play in adult leagues for sports such as hockey, basketball or soccer, but some clients simply just want to improve their golf game.
“Most people may think that this type of training is for high-end athletes, but that’s not true. Once they try it, most adults love this type of training, and the results are quicker,” says Ian Gaines, head trainer at Sports Performance Team of Dallas. He has found that many of SPT clients are at a beginner or intermediate skill level, and they are training just to get in shape or to play a sport recreationally.
Sports Specific Training is not just for training for a sport. Many sports specific clients at SPT Dallas are families and the trainer trains Mom, Dad, and the kids. It’s a great family fun way to stay in shape.
Sports specific training is also very popular with women at SPT Dallas and most of the women have never even played an organized sport before. Regardless of their reasons for participating in sports-specific training, the clients are happy with the results.
At The Fitness Club at Midway it works out great for the members because they don't have to pay a huge, additional amount on top of their membership. It's just another affordable service that they can provide. At SPT Dallas, you don’t have to be a member of the fitness center to train with a sports specific trainer.
There are six sports specific trainers on staff at The Fitness Club and it’s a win/win situation for both the trainers and clients. SPT Dallas prides itself on hiring performance coaches rather than personal trainers. Performance coaches have to be Sports Performance Team Certified, with three years of athletic and sports related experience. All trainers are required to perform in-service hours. They strive to exceed all industry requirements by updating and expanding the trainer’s knowledge on a frequent basis.
One of the sports specific programs is a baseball camp. “Baseball is a sport with many different demands on the body,” says Mike Bell, owner of The Fitness Club. “Unlike some sports where endurance, power, leaping ability, or explosive speed is the most important component, baseball involves a few motions all with different demands on the body. The baseball swing, for example, involves the core, hips, legs, forearms, wrists, triceps, rear and lateral deltoids, and a few other smaller muscles.”
Baseball camps are just one of the sports specific camps that are available. SPT Dallas also offers speed camps, agility training and much more. There is also group or team training available and the trainers will go on location to assist local schools with their sports and fitness programs. If you're interested in sports specific training programs call SPT Dallas at 972-267-2626.
