Someone who pushes us to be the best version of ourselves that we can possibly ....

  • Training Through Injury

    Training Through Injury

    Training Through Injury Our number 1 goal of our training program at The Athlete Factory is to reduce the risk of injury with our athletes. While we have been very successful in pursuing this goal over the years the fact remains that injuries happen in sport and competition. Understanding that training should not stop due to injury is a crucial point for long term training goals and success.

    How we chose results driven exercises

    There has never been an easier time to get information. Each day our social media accounts are flooded with new videos, pictures and ideas. So.. how does a "new" drill or exercise make it into our programming at The Athlete Factory? 1. Will it directly benefit our athletes results in their performance? 2.

Can we teach/coach it effectively to large groups of athletes? 5. Is it a better option than the exercise we are removing from our program?
