  • Spring Break Schedule

    After careful considerations and conversations with several of our valued members, we have decided to offer a modified schedule during Spring Break. Don't worry, the only significant change is a temporary break for our early birds (5/5:30am classes) and the addition of a mid morning Athlete Class (at 10am). This schedule will begin THIS Friday, March 16th, and run through next Saturday, March 24th. Also during this time, we are inviting our former members (athletes and adults) to pop in for a free class or two, as well as our current members are welcome to bring a friend along to come check us out. We look forward to seeing you all during break! ....

    5 Life Lessons From the Weight Room

    Working with young athletes is a passion that our coaches share and take great responsibility in at The Athlete Factory. We believe that the weight room is a place of growth and learning for our young athletes that go far beyond getting bigger, faster and stronger for the sport that they play. There is such a great opportunity to have a positive impact on a young athlete’s life, while they are in the gym working hard to get better at the sport they love. Through the years, we have seen many an athlete go on to do great things on, but more importantly off the field. We take great pride knowing we were part of the team people who helped coach and guide them there. Below are ....

  • Sports Performance Training in Altamonte Springs - The Athlete Factory - 5 Sure Fire Ways to Increase Speed

    5 Sure Fire Ways to Increase Speed

    Developing linear speed is a critical component to athletic success. Having athletes that can accelerate and run fast not only in the beginning of the competition but more importantly at the end competition is what separates a good player from a great one. With this concept in mind, developing a speed program that focuses on repeated accelerations will transfer to the field, or court, of play. A few concepts to consider:

    We train for acceleration not top end speed -
    The reality of sports is that our athletes will rarely have the opportunity to reach top speed. Most of the tests that we use to measure speed, like the 40 for football and 60 for baseball, are more of a test of ....

  • Sports Performance Training in Altamonte Springs - The Athlete Factory - Should Athletes Train Year Round?

    Should Athletes Train Year Round?

    Each year kids spend their off-seasons preparing to make an impact during their High School season kicks off. Unfortunately once the season begins, many of these same kids stop training and just focus on their practices and games. With this approach, strength levels decline rapidly, injury rates rise, while performance late in the season declines.
    We recommend athletes continue their training programs at a minimum of twice per week during their season. This will give them the opportunity to continue to increase strength and power levels, while keeping them healthy and producing big numbers on the field. Our In Season programs consist of the following:

    Strength Training:

  • 5 Crucial Exercises For Building a Strong Core

    5 Exercises Crucial to Building a Strong Core

    Core training has been a staple in strength and conditioning programs for as long as I can remember. I can recall doing hundreds of sit ups, crunches and other exercises during my time in high school. Gone are those days as well as those exercises. We have since learned that those exercises do not build the core for function, back health and performance on the field. The core musculature is made to resist the movements mentioned above while providing a stable foundation for which movement to occur from our legs and hips. The core is also responsible for allowing force to be transmitted from the ground and through the ....

  • Sports Performance Training in Altamonte Springs - The Athlete Factory - The One Thing Athletes Can Do To Improve Daily Performance

    The One Thing Athletes Can Do To Improve Daily Performance

    Student athletes have a ton of responsibilities. School, practice, workouts, homework, part time jobs, social lives, etc. With all of this going on, it is easy for the one thing that will make a huge difference in all of these activities to get neglected. This one thing is to EAT!!! We have found that the number one hindrance to many an athlete's performance is the lack of nutrition they take in on a daily basis. Many of our athletes will admit to not eating breakfast daily, having no morning snack and eating a small lunch by the time afternoon practice and/or workouts roll around. Then coaches expect them to have a good workout followed by a long practice. This is a lot to ask out ....
