Building the Proper Structural Foundation:
At Corexcell, our philosophy is to structurally balance the supportive stabilizer muscles in the hips/core/shoulders/ankles, making the athlete less prone to injury, while enhancing higher levels of speed, lifting strength, and coordination.
Sprinting, lifting, and jumping are a major part of our training to improve athletic power. However, if there is a weakness in the smaller supportive muscles, athletes will limit their power out put by primarily relying on the major muscle groups to perform explosive movements. If the smaller muscles are not being used efficiently in the chain = less power production.
Additionally, stabilizer muscle weaknesses will place more impact on the joints and muscular system, causing long term wear and tear and an increased injury potential.
Over a 15 year period, Corexcell has come up with a testing methodology to pinpoint muscle weaknesses and take the necessary steps to put athletes in structural balance to improve performance and eliminate injuries.
Blending the Best Training Concepts
There is many paths to Rome when it comes to sports training. Meaning There are many different training methods to make athletes fast and strong. At Corexcell we have spent the last 15 years experimenting with multiple training methods and determined what methods work best based on the body type of the athlete, the level of the athlete, and phase of training.
What makes the unified training method unique is its ability to blend the two extremes of heavy weight training versus developing athletic speed & flexibility. We are the Ying and yang of sports training. And Our athletes are always challenged not only to get stronger with squat and dead lift but to become more flexible and structurally balanced with their smaller stabilizer muscles.
Learning our system and our muscle testing method will set u apart as a trainer and as an athlete.
