Competitive Athletics

Youth, prep, collegiate and professional athletes come to The Trainers Club to improve their performance. Training programs are based on information gathered from; our trademarked screens, a joint by joint functional profile, and athletic movement observation. We are committed to constant and never ending improvement and continue to educate ourselves far and above the norm. The training staff teaches speed and agility principles from the nationally accredited IYCA (International Youth Conditioning Association).

We believe that adding load above body weight is earned through correct motion and stability throughout the kinetic chain. Adding strength on top of dysfunctional movement only exaggerates weaknesses. Trying to add power to joints that are not stable is like “firing a canon from a canoe” (Charles Poliquin). We will help you create resilience and an unbreakable body that can stand up to the rigors of a competitive season.

Job Performance

Your exercise program is geared toward improving overall functional stability, strength, flexibility and your ability to perform job related movements. Our integrated approach focuses on restoring posture through corrective exercise, stretching, and proper work site biomechanics. Overall core strength and reconnecting key spinal stabilizing muscles are foundational to decreasing the risk of low back injuries and missed work days.

Activities of Daily Living

Our primary goal is to help you enjoy life and the activities that define your lifestyle. You will learn how to strengthen your body to work as a linked system with all parts working together to produce efficient movement. We primarily train your body to perform life like essential movement patterns (see FIST), not tradtional body building exercises which isolate out a single muscle group. Isolated movement patterns are utilized, but not for the purpose of having bigger biceps. The main reason for choosing to isolate is to restore lost function and reconnect stabilizing muscles of the body to help reinforce healthy joint function, optimal joint alignment, and posture.

After Therapy

Injuries or surgery often take months of slow, steady consistent work. The process of regaining all of your functional capabilities usually is not complete after being released from physical therapy. We will challenge you in a progressive manner as you strive to get back to your old self again. We work with your therapist to continue building functional flexibility, strength, power, and coordination so that you can confidently get back to the activities you desire. We continually strive to educate ourselves with the brightest minds in the field of corrective exercise and have learned from the nations best physical therapists that have published their works. Names like: Gray Cook, Vladimir Yanda, Shirly Sharman, Gary Gray, Paul Chek, all have had significant influence in helping us to be the referred choice of many physical therapists on the North Shore.

Functional Integrated Strength Training (FIST) Performance Center
Our nationally renowned FIST approach:

* Essential movement pattern training such as: squat, lunge, step-up, lift, hinge, 
  extend, rotate, push, pull, reach, pivot, shift, & glide

* Incorporates primarily ground-based life-like movements in multiple planes

* Real life movement patterns with progressive resistance appropriate for you
  (body weight, dumbbells, barbells, cable resistance, kettle bells, tubing,
  medicine balls, rings, ropes)

* Integrates the whole body through core generated movement patterns

* Promotes ideal postural reactions

* Creates gravitational loading & balance reactions

* Challenges your body & brain

* Is FUN, not the same circuit of machines every workout

The Trainers Club Mentoring & Internship Program

The Trainers Club, under the leadership of Mark Cibrario, has served many student interns who have completed their college requirements through a semester internship. We have also served many personal trainers in their quest to improve their on the job skills through our mentoring program. The mentoring program is tailor made to meet the requests of each individual in the specialized area they desire.

Nueromuscular Re-Education (Pro Touch Rehabilitation)

If recovering from an old or new injury, muscles sometimes aren’t fully firing to their full potential leaving a joint unstable or lacking full functional ability. We use the latest techniques to re-educate or wake up a muscle group so that movement can be restored within the kinetic chain. We have muscle activation specialist Steve Spencer of Pro Touch Rehabilitation on site.
