    Athletic Performance Training

    Our Athletic Performance Training program runs from Fall through Spring with a rolling entry model and is held primarily indoors. With this hour long class an athlete will be taken through a dynamic warmup, speed and agility drills, resistance training, and conditioning.


    Athletic Performance Training PLUS

    Our PLUS Program runs during the summer months and is broken up into (2) four-week sessions, with an additional/optional two-week session. The class is 30 minutes longer than the Fall-Spring program and is held in an outdoor weight-training facility. The extra time allows for a more comprehensive program that includes performance assessments, speed and agility drills, resistance training, and conditioning.

    The Sport Performance Training (SPI) helped my sons (ages 14 & 15) in so many ways. They did SPI this past spring and summer during which they gained a greater confidence in their physical abilities as well as experienced an improvement in their self-esteem. Both boys always enjoyed their sessions. They worked hard and felt that it helped them to get great results. The trainers provided a fun and uplifting training environment, and genuinely cared about the well-being and continued success of their athletes. My family has only the best of things to say about the MAC’s SPI program and its trainers.”
