Genesis Athletic Performance is a gym that uses a multiple training programs to improve an athlete’s performance in their sport and help our clients reach their goals.
Our training consists of getting every client and athlete the results they need no matter where they start.
Every workout consists of weight training, gymnastic training, cardio, strongman training, and other forms of exercise that don’t just get the best results possible, but carryover directly into an athlete’s sport or a client’s daily life.
This actually one of the main reasons why our training programs work so well. When done correctly, the workouts are able to be scaled as hard or easy as needed so every client and athlete can get the best results while training as safely as possible.
Even if you haven’t worked out in months/years or are coming back from a sports related injury, our workouts will be scaled so you can complete them and get the best results as safely as possible.
We are very lucky and have had the ability to work with multiple clients who vary in size, shape, age, strength, goals, sports, background, ethnicity, etc..
Our Sports Performance program works with athletes ranging from 7 years old up to the professional level and participate in any sport that requires strength, power, speed, agility, conditioning, and mental toughness.
With this experience comes an appreciation for the subtle differences that each client and athlete requires and that we are able to successfully provide.
Expect to be sore. Really sore. There is no way to get around it. This is normal, and proof that you are working hard breaking down muscle fibers during your workout. It is during your rest periods between workouts that your muscles will build up even stronger.
You can help speed the recovery process by drinking plenty of water, getting adequate sleep (7+hours a night), performing basic mobility and flexibility work, and taking fish oil which has been shown to speed recovery.
Whatever you do, don’t stop training just cause you are sore. It is good to come back and take the next workout light if you need to.
The main thing is to keep moving so your body adapts to continued intense training.
This is VERY individualized and depends on your schedule, your digestion ability, the workout, etc.
If you are eating right before training, make sure it is not much more than maybe a small piece of fruit or a few nuts, as if you consume too much it has a great chance of coming right back up – if the workout is done correctly.
Yes, we have had numerous clients who came to us with back, knee, or neck pain who have found relief by strengthening the muscles around the problem area.
People often neglect exercising their lower back due to fear of re-injuring and then end up weak, de-conditioned, and more susceptible to injury in the future. Every movement in our program is scalable allowing anyone to take part.
