Athletic Performance Training

Reach Your Athletic Potential
Whether your sport is soccer, lacrosse, basketball, baseball, hockey, figure skating, golf or any other, SPORT-Rx’s certified sports performance specialists offer targeted training designed to enhance athletic performance and prevent injuries. We combine advanced training principles with innovations from sports medicine and sport science to deliver superior results in terms of athletic performance markers, including absolute speed, acceleration, agility, explosive power and strength. That’s why high school, NCAA, professional, and Olympic athletes alike believe in SPORT-Rx’s proven training approach.

At SPORT-Rx’s performance centers in Hyannis and Pembroke, Mass., you may rub elbows with some of the finest athletes in the world as school-age athletes train in the same facility as the pros. We believe all of our athletes benefit from exposure to a diverse cross-section of competitors, from a 10-year-old nationally ranked alpine Super G skier to a pro baseball player tuning up for spring training.

We offer training in several formats:
Small Group Training
Team Training
Individual Training
Specialized Golf and Tennis Programs

Small Group Training
Train in small groups of 5-10 athletes who share your passion for a particular sport. Our sport-specific groups allow for the most sharply focused program design tailored to the demands of both your sport and your position. We’ll analyze your individual strengths and limiting factors and integrate solutions into a comprehensive program appropriate for all participants. Groups may elect to add sport psychology coaching sessions and nutrition seminars to augment the training experience. Most groups are ongoing and may be joined with approval from the SPORT-Rx coach. If you prefer, you can form your own group by bringing along at least four teammates or friends who play your sport.

Get Back in the Game
Function First Physical Therapy has opened in SPORT-Rx in the Hyannis location. Owner of Function First Jim Hawley and Jeff Handler have worked extensively together for several years rehabilitating and conditioning the areas top athletes. Jeff is very excited to have Jim on board to care for all the athletes of SPORT-Rx and the members of Jeff’s health and fitness facility Handler Health and Fitness.

Team Training
We can train your entire team to supplement your on-field practice and support your coach. In designing these training sessions, we address both the overall needs of the group, as well as the unique needs of each individual athlete to create a comprehensive program. We have found these sessions to be highly motivational for the athletes involved as each strives to reach new levels of performance alongside teammates. Team training is available for teams in all sports, from soccer to synchronized skating, and at all levels, from youth clubs to adult leagues to professional teams.

Individual Training
For the most dedicated attention to your individual needs work one-on-one with a SPORT-Rx performance specialist. He or she will identify your strengths and weaknesses, determine how these impact your performance in your chosen sport, and design a training program to address each issue systematically. Student athletes and adults alike should expect to see significant improvements in key measures of performance appropriate to your sport, such as vertical jump, agility, first-step speed, and local muscular endurance. For professional athletes, individual training is the most targeted way to help new players hone the performance attributes needed to stand out, and help veteran players stay in the game a little longer.


Trainer’s Tip
Athletes who hope to play intercollegiate sports should begin the performance enhancement training process as early as freshman year of high school in order to be competitive upon graduation. Too often, young athletes head to college ill-equipped to contend with older teammates accustomed to the demands and expectations of college-level athletics. SPORT-Rx excels at preparing high school athletes for the challenges ahead, both on the field and in the weight room – helping ease the sometimes difficult high school-to-college transition.

Specialized Golf and Tennis Programs
While our golf and tennis training packages are targeted toward serious adult players, athletes of all ages and levels can benefit from these intensive training and learning opportunities.
