ABOUT US

A VISION ACHIEVED. OPPORTUNITY CREATED. SUCCESS ESTABLISHED.

 

IN 2008 MIT STARTED WITH A VISION TO FILL A GAP IN THE NEED OF SPEED & TRACK TRAINING. TODAY MIT IS A LEADING TRAINING DESTINATION FOR ATHLETES 8 TO 18YRS FORĀ ALL SPORTS AND THE GO TO TRACK & FIELD TRAINING ORGANIZATION.

Our well tested performance training has developed a creativity and knowledge of kinesiology principles, sport-specific requirements and speed disciplines.

 

The first priority is the health and wellness of clients.

 

The second priority is mechanical efficiency. The more mechanically efficient you are will decrease injuries and increase a higher degree of performance.

 

Our muscular fitness program will emphasize power – specific work and to be prepared for any physical situation a competition may demand as well as perform under stress and under any circumstance at any time.

The Core of Our Training

To improve the athlete’s physiological state of readiness and confidence. The more confident an athlete has in his or her ability, the better the athlete will perform. An expectation for us is for the athletes to exhibit technical mastery in their best practices leading into the competition as well as the day of performance.

Achieve a Higher Level of Performance

To achieve a higher level of performance players must consistently attend workouts in order to create a more efficient neuromuscular pattern. A more efficient and conditioned neuromuscular pattern the least likely players are to get injured. If an injury does occur the recovery time will be faster to to a well-developed neuromuscular pattern.

Training Approach

Training approach includes linear and circular speed development. Agility drills that improve the athletic balance and athletic coordination that is critical to reprogramming in-balances and preventing injuries. Conditioning Training that focuses on reducing oxygen consumption during a sport and increasing maximum performance sustain output.
