Why Join Beyond Parallel?
A big part of sports is off-season training. With how competitive sports are in today’s age, you have to train year round if you want a shot to play Varsity or College. The scariest part of sending your son or daughter to a gym is not knowing what they are doing. Who is watching them or guiding them? Unless you are there coaching them, there is no way to know if what they are doing is working or if it is even good for them! Some places take a PT approach to training but the problem with that is plateaus come quickly and you are back to square one, making no progress. At Beyond Parallel we run a proven and varied program to keep your son or daughter climbing the ladder!

Core to Extremity
Our first approach that we take with kids is what we call “Core to Extremity”. We use multiple different functional movements and motor patterns to teach kids how to move with their core in mind. Low back injuries are one of the most common injury in youth sports due to poor posture created in daily activities. Learning the proper way to brace your core is one of the most important aspects of being an athlete. Proper core control creates balance, stability and a more agile athlete. Core to Extremity is applied to everything we do in the gym from lifting weights to running.
Functional movements are key to being a high level athlete. The first thing we see in most of our students is the lack of full range of motion or improper motor pattern. Our bodies are capable of using full range of motion in daily activities and many sports even force you to use those ranges of motion while playing them. With that being said, shouldn’t you train your body the same way you play? Full range of motion is the most effective way to prevent injury and create longevity. Full range of FUNCTIONAL movements are the best way to train an athlete. A functional movement is a simulation of a movement that occurs in daily activity. We teach all of our movements with that in mind, from a bench press to a squat, all movements are meant to simulate and strengthen the movements we do on a daily basis. This allows for maximum potential to be reached in any sport.
Sports today require High Intensity. Sports are not slowing down, but getting faster each year. High Intensity does not mean unsafe in any way. Our approach to High Intensity teaches kids how to push their limits while maintaining safety. High Intensity intervals simulate a “sprint and rest” routine which is how most sports are played now and days, work really hard for a period of time and then rest. High Intensity training also builds aerobic capacity by increasing the amount of work that an athlete can do in a period of time. The longer an athlete can perform at a task at High Intensity and maintain that Intensity, the more Aerobic that athlete is.
