Whether your goal is to be an elite level athlete or simply to perform better as a weekend warrior, everyone knows it is important to train hard, improve your technique, eat right and have a good coaching staff. While having all of the aforementioned benefits work in your favor, there may still be something missing from the equation that will leave you wondering why you are unable to compete at your highest potential.
One often overlooked aspect of sports performance is thoroughly evaluating an athlete’s body through basic movement screening. Screening for proper movement mechanics can uncover weaknesses or muscle imbalances that could be keeping you from reaching your potential, or worse, predisposing you to injuries that could greatly interfere with your training regimen. Being routinely evaluated during training and recovery periods can help ensure that your body is capable of performing at its maximum capacity and recovering efficiently its during down time.
