Blackbench Fit Announces Fall Athletic Development Academy
BBF Academy works with young athletes to ensure peak performance in their sport and reduce risk of injury
By: BlackBench Fit
Unlike any other training available in Loudoun, the MBSC curriculum pairs athletes with specially-trained coaches who provide instruction using the techniques Boyle employs at the professional and Olympic training level.
The MBSC curriculum is adjusted for in-season and out-of-season athletes, but ties an athlete’s overall progression to a long-term goal. Participant goals and objectives are identified upon entry into the program and are accompanied by a full functional assessment to identify specific areas of strength and weakness.
“There’s a good reason all higher level athletes in sports are involved in strength training, to get faster and move better you need a bigger engine. Some sports may provide conditioning during the season, but none will really help to improve strength or power, which makes the difference between good athletes and great athletes,” said BBF co-owner Trish Drennan.
“Most importantly, functional strength work helps reduce and prevent injury in sports, a top priority for us at BlackBench Fit,” said co-owner Lisa Allen.
Beginning the week of September 6, and ending November 27, BBF will offer the Fall Athletic Development Academy, with 90-minute small-group workout sessions.
Open to middle and high school athletes, it includes movement training, injury prevention, speed work, agility, explosive power development, proper weight training techniques and functional strength training.
