2SP Sports Performance Is Better Than A Coach For Aspiring Young Athletes

By Pamela Sosnowski

What does it take for aspiring athletes to perform their best? It takes expert training, motivation, and the proper nutrition. Whether someone wants to consistently make touchdowns on the football field or become the next Olympic gold metal winner, the pros at 2SP Sports Performance of Madison Heights can help young athletes reach their goals and advance towards their dreams.

"Whatever an athlete's goal is, 2SP can help them achieve it," says Claire Richard, one of the facilities strength & conditioning coaches. "We've successfully helped athletes gain lean mass, lose fat mass, become stronger, get faster, put on size, and eliminate pain. We have knowledgeable and experienced coaches who genuinely care and want to see everyone reach their potential. They work to stay up-to-date with exercise trends and are continuously learning to better serve our athletes."

Athletes are trained according to their age group; 2SP's staff works with kids age 12 and under, teens from age 13 to 18, and college/junior/pro level. "We especially focus on body awareness with our younger 12 and under clients," says Richard.

"Some parents may think that 9 years old is too young for their athlete to start training, but there is actually a lot we can do with them. This is a great age to start teaching proper movement mechanics and body weight exercises so when the athlete begins lifting weights they are performing the movements properly. By mixing in drills and games we're able to create a fun environment for the young kids."

For an extra charge clients can receive a comprehensive movement assessment by 2SP's in-house chiropractor. This will ensure that training will be safe for the athlete, help minimize the risk of any injury, and the movements they're capable of making form the basis of their individualized training. According to Richard, the staff can easily modify exercises for athletes that are recovering from injuries.

"Some are currently injured and want to continue training, some are just coming back from injuries and some have minor nagging injuries that may limit exercise selection," she explains. "Athletes who have an injury come to us because we don't use their injury as an excuse not to train; we train around it (with clearance from their doctor)."

Because children are students, too, 2SP is mindful of the hectic schedule parents and kids lead these days. As a result, 2SP is flexible and has no set appointments. Clients are not required to complete a workout within an hour; instead, the coaches work with them on their timeline to make every rep and exercise count instead of rushing them through a training session.

In addition to individual and team training, 2SP offers "Speed and Agility" sessions at certain times of the year that help field sports athletes develop faster performance. The facility also provides sports nutrition services, via a variety of delicious, healthy, pre-made meals as well as supplements and one-on-one nutritional coaching.

All of which helps 2SP stand out as the perfect partner for helping athletes of all ages do their personal best, no matter their sport or interest. "At the end of the day, we just do a great job of assessing an athletes abilities and needs, communicating what their goals are, listening to their feedback, and designing and redesigning programs that take it all into account," says Richard. "This should really be a staple for any fitness business, but I think what makes us stand out is our commitment to making it a company standard."
