APEX Summer Performance
Training Program

What is the APEX Summer Program?

The APEX Summer Performance Training Program is the premiere place to improve your child’s athletic foundation while decreasing their overall injury risk. This program is designed & instructed by doctors of physical therapy, certified strength & conditioning specialists, and former professional athletes to give your youth athlete the most comprehensive approach to building overall athleticism. The summer is the perfect time to focus on the details of strength, mobility, agility, coordination, explosiveness and power, and combine them together to become an improved overall athlete.

Our program is designed to foster a competitive, yet welcoming environment for athletes that aspire to play at the top level of their sport(s). Throughout the summer, this program will expose each athlete to what they can expect from a college strength & conditioning program, but at a proper rate and progression for their age and ability, under supervision of highly trained, qualified professionals.

What is the APEX Summer
Program Philosophy?

The APEX Summer Performance Training Program is centered around the performance model pyramid shown here. We’re here to help people build a wide, strong foundation of athleticism for athletes in all sports. Most sports have plenty of time in both practices and games where athletes will work on explosiveness, reactive strength and speed. However, that practice time neglects building foundational strength and, most importantly, workload capacity. If you take away the blocks of foundational strength and workload capacity, an athlete’s pyramid of performance is much smaller, creating a higher risk for injury and limiting top end performance potential.  

Most athletes attending the Summer Performance Training Program have previously joined us (or are currently in) for 1 on 1 physical therapy, the APEX Ascent Program, and/or attended last summer. If you would like to join us for either of these options before this summer’s program begins, click the above links, fill out the form down below or give us a call!

Why is a 10-Week Program best for athletes?

It’s no secret that results are best generated with a consistent approach. Research studies prominently highlight the importance of a CONSISTENT, twice per week, weight training regimen to have the best results at decreasing injury risk, building strength, improving speed, agility and coordination. At the college and professional athlete level, off-season training programs are always designed in multi-phase, long term approaches. The APEX Summer Performance Training Program is modeled after that same approach over 10 weeks to not only introduce your athlete to what they can expect at the next level, but produce results and physiological changes at the end of summer. All 10 weeks will also allow the APEX Team to ensure a proper progression of weight, resistance and challenge from one session to the next. 

What Does our
Summer Performance Program
Focus On?

  1. Injury Prevention – We’ve been treating physical therapy patients since 2014, from middle school to professional athletes. We’ve implemented all the latest research into this program to help people decrease their injury risk as much as possible, including common injuries like ACL tears, ankle sprains, hamstring pulls, shoulder injuries and more.
  2. Strength –  One of the best ways to decrease injury risk, is through strength training. Strength is a building block for athletes in any sport, any age. Our programs will help your athlete, safely and effectively, build muscle to help them be stronger throughout their sport. We do this through bodyweight movement, weights, medicine balls and resistance bands, ensuring proper technique before making things more difficult.

  3. Mobility / Stability – Some athletes need to increase flexibility, range of motion and mobility. This will allow for speed, strength and explosiveness increases. Other athletes need to be more stable at a moments notice. We incorporate both mobility & stability in all workouts.
  4. Agility – No matter the sport, dedicating training to fast-twitch muscle fibers will help athletes develop all around athleticism and blow by their competition.
  5. Endurance – Every sport requires endurance so that the athlete can continue to push when energy is low. We will develop both cardiovascular and muscular endurance during this program so your athlete can stand out all game long.
  6. Explosiveness – Adding explosive training principles allows an athlete to improve relative strength and create more force, resulting in improvements in things like, vertical jump, broad jump & top end performance.
  7. Body Control – Athletes are growing and always a work in progress. This program is dedicated to helping your athlete improve their ability to control their body through space, especially when fatigued.

Which is More Important, Strength or Speed?

Different sports place a different demand on each athlete. Many athletes spend their time working on speed or speed-strength, while others focus solely on strength or strength-speed. Some of this comes naturally with the sport, practice time and games or competitions. Each element of the Force Velocity Curve is important and it is most ideal for an athlete to increase the entire curve outward. This compliments the Performance Model pyramid shown above and creates a well-rounded athlete. The Summer Performance Program emphasizes all parts of the Force Velocity Curve through a variety of exercises and movements involving bodyweight, resistance bands, weights and medicine balls. We utilize all areas of our facility, that has 2000 square of turf, weight floor and 30 foot high ceilings.

FAQ - Summer Sports Performance Training Program:

That's a great question! This program is modeled after a college or pro training program to give your youth athlete a look at what the next level will look like. Most importantly, a 10 week program will create consistency, which is required to make the improvement you and your youth athlete are looking for. 10 weeks at 2 workouts per week will allow your athlete the proper time to learn and progress in a safe, effective manner. The program is split into 3 different phases: a 4-week phase to start, then 3 weeks and 3 weeks. The rep count, rest time and exercises will shift in each phase to give your youth athlete the improvement they're looking for in strength, conditioning, agility, vertical jump, mobility/stability, power and most importantly, decreasing their overall injury risk.

If you have more questions or want to know more details, please give us a call!

We would recommend setting up an appointment with our team of physical therapists. Our approach is based on getting the body back to performance shape, pain free. This is how we transition athletes back into their sport in a safe manner. Your athlete would then be introduced to the training program as soon as they are cleared by our PT.

The Summer Sports Performance Training Program will begin Tuesday June 21st. Before that date, most attendees are seeing us for 1 on 1 physical therapy (self pay or using health insurance - we're in network!) and/or attending the APEX Ascent Program. This is a great way to get a head start and allow more room for improvement throughout the summer.

That's awesome! We have a Friday add on, one hour session available to those that purchase either full summer program.

These workouts will be additional injury prevention, recovery, mobility/stability, agility and targeted training. This is the perfect addition/supplement for youth athletes attending the summer sports performance training program. If you didn't add this on at time of purchase, be sure to reach out to us to get signed up!

The Summer Sports Performance Training Program will end Thursday August 25th. After that date, most attendees will continue to see us for 1 on 1 physical therapy (self pay or using health insurance - we're in network!) and/or attending the APEX Ascent Program. This is a great way to continue to make improvements and build upon the enhanced athletic foundation created in the summer.

YES! The Summer Program (and all of our workout sessions all year) help increase mobility, flexibility and stability. This will be achieved through various exercises and movements from a dynamic warm up to start to an active cool down to finish. Most importantly, your youth athlete will learn what they can be doing at home to continue their improvement on the days they're not at APEX.

A result of strength and conditioning, with plyometric training incorporated in, is the ability to jump higher and further. With our programs, you can expect your child to jump higher, but training safely to improve overall athleticism as well.

No matter the sport, training the fast twitch muscle groups will help an athlete get faster. We emphasize training both fast and slow twitch throughout every session to help improve speed, agility, strength, explosion, balance and more.

A primary focus of our performance training is strength work. We begin with fundamentals and foundations of strength, and progress each athlete based on their ability. Younger athletes start with body weight and focus more on mechanics, while older athletes will progress to heavier weight to increase overall strength for their sport.

Our physical therapy team is comprised of doctors of physical therapy that are also certified strength and conditioning specialists, USA Track & Field certified coaches, and more! Needless to say, our team has both training and medical knowledge to provide the best environment and workout for your athlete.

Based on our practice of physical therapy here at APEX (that’s actually how we started our business!), we focus on core components of fundamental strength training which reduces the risk of injury by building the muscular system to better support the body. There is a massive crossover between sports performance and physical therapy training, sports performance is just the next level of the work you would do in a physical therapy session with us. Most of our patients treat their physical therapy with us as a workout, getting the best results for their effort. This also helps to reduce the risk of overtraining.
