Train like an Athlete...Look like an Athlete
How many times have you heard people say that the best they ever felt and looked was when they played high school or college sport? Maybe you're one of them! Do you often look at athletes in admiration for not only the way they look, but also the way their bodies move and perform in competition? Many people want the athletic look, but most train counter to how athletes train. Athletes focus on improving cardio respiratory endurance, stamina, strength, balance, agility, accuracy, coordination, flexibility and power.
At R.A.W. Training, we use a variety of modalities and techniques including: plyometrics, Olympic lifts, bodyweight training, kettlebells, ropes and free weights. Athletic training will increase lean muscle, improve fluid and functional movement, help with fat loss, and develop anaerobic/aerobic conditioning. Additionally, athletic training prevents injury and improves flexibility and stability. The best thing about training like an athlete is that sessions are fun - we'll have you sprinting hills, box jumping, pressing sandbags, flipping tires and more!
