Athletic performance training is a specialized form of preparation in which an athlete conditions both their mind and body to the rigors of a particular sport through specific strength training exercises and workout programs.
The ultimate goal of athletic performance training is to enhance physical function at a critical moment, such as during a competition or a sports match. This differs from personal training in that the aim of athletic performance training is specialized (rather than geared toward general fitness), and it is all about performance results as opposed to aesthetic ones.
With a broad range of performance workouts and weights at their disposal, each athlete can create a specialized workout plan focusing on the areas of the body they most want to strengthen in order to improve their performance.
By taking a scientifically-backed approach to their training which combines such methods as HIIT, resistance, agility, core, and strength training programs, athletes ensure that they are doing everything possible to condition themselves—both physically and mentally—to perform at the highest possible level when the time comes.
There are certain staples of athletic performance training that every athlete should have in their arsenal for the simple fact that they are highly effective. These are tried and true tools of the trade that will take performance to an entirely new level when adopted properly.
