Featured Athlete of the Month athletes have participated in AMP / Elite Sports Performance Training by Granite Health and Fitness and have had measured improvement in their athletic abilities.
Spring Sports Lacrosse
When did you go through the ESP/AMP program? Winter 2014-15
How did you learn about ESP/AMP? My lacrosse coach recommended the class to me.
What was your favorite ESP/AMP workout and why? My favorite workout was using the high speed treadmill. It’s a piece of equipment that most people will never get to use and its really exhilarating to be on.
What exercises helped you best for your sports you are involved in? Lacrosse has a lot of side to side movement and the classes that I took really helped me to increase my ability to change directions quickly.
What was the hardest part about going through the ESP/AMP program? Making time to attend the classes.
Would you do it again? Would you recommend it to others? The class really helped me to improve my form when going through athletic movements which will carry over to all sports that I play; I would definitely recommend it.
Sports advice for other athletes? Training in general but only smart training will put you ahead.
