Tis’ the season to register your young athlete for TrueAP’s Winter Sports Program Training!

At True Athlete Performance, we are committed to improving athleticism and confidence by providing a safe, fun, skill-based experience for athletes ages 8 to 18. Our training programs offer athletes an edge in abilities, and work on improving their all around skill-base.

We break our Performance Training programs into three separate groupings, based on age range. Athletes of all sports and skill levels are welcome, from beginner to advanced. Every athlete that walks through our doors will receive high-quality coaching and leave with an increased skill level and sense of confidence in their abilities. 

PROGRAM TIERS:

  • MIDDLE SCHOOL ATHLETE – Designed for ages 11-13, this program progresses to more athletic movement with an increased emphasis on power and speed, age-appropriate weightlifting, and overall movement quality.
  • HIGH SCHOOL ATHLETE – Designed for ages 14-18, this program helps to develop high-level power and strength, and implements advanced speed and agility drills.

Basketball Players: What Will IN-SEASON BASKETBALL TRAINING Do For You?

 

TrueAP’s In-Season Basketball Training sessions begin on December 8th. Our training programs have helped athletes improve and retain skills throughout the season and reduce the chance of injury.

Jump Higher 

Most players tend to lose much of their vertical jump during the season for the simple fact that they aren’t lifting and they aren’t doing the proper plyometrics to improve vertical jump. A 3-4 month season can kill your vertical jump if you go that long with just playing basketball and never training to maintain or improve your vertical. With In-Season Mastery you will continue to add inches to you Vertical even when every one else is losing them.

Move Faster

In-Season Mastery will develop more of your speed, quickness, and agility during the season. Basketball can be a long brutal sport that can affect your explosiveness and speed. You will continue to train your and improve all aspects of your speed and quickness.

Get Stronger

Most players lose at least 10% of their strength during the season because they go months without lifting. You will continue to get stronger so you can be a dominant player on the court. That will make other opponents not only respect you but also fear you each and every time that you step on the court.

Reduce Injury

Injuries are the worst part of sports and some are out of our control. We’ll address common problematic areas such as poor thoracic (upper-back) mobility, bad ankle mobility, tight hip flexors, and a weak core and glutes giving our players a great chance to be healthy through the season.

Connor Bowers - True AP

What motivated you to start training with True AP?

I was in need of high intensity training that would strengthen my entire body. My body was not meeting the demands of my natural God given abilities and my work ethic. My aggressive “all out” style of play on the baseball and soccer field was landing me in the trainer’s room and doctors office way more than that of a typical high caliber athlete my age. I needed a trainer that I could rely on to strengthen my body and get me into the best shape possible. I decided from previously working with True AP for short periods of time that True AP was going to do that for me.

What results have you seen since?

Without positive results you are basically wasting your time by working out. The results that True AP has produced for me have been tremendous. Over a course of about 9-10 months of training with True AP I went from 134 pounds to 147 pounds. The extra muscle allowed me to be stronger on the soccer field and not get knocked around as much. In baseball it allowed me to take more reps without being prohibited by not feeling good. My sophomore and junior soccer season at North High I played 3 games. My senior year after working with True AP I played every single game and other than a few bumps and bruises sustained no injury that even kept me out of a practice. True AP has gifted me with the ability to play the sports I love day in and day out with no problems.

What specific aspect of our program do you like the most?

The strength training is what really propelled me to the next level and allowed me to get a lot stronger.

Why would you recommend other athletes train with True AP?

You can’t go wrong with True AP. Whether you want to be faster, stronger or more agile True AP has it all. Josh Daniels and his team will create tailor made workouts that focus on  whatever you need help with. They are the best trainers around and know how to fit your needs and make sure that you are getting the results that you want.

Is there anything else you would like to add about your experience with us?

Josh and his team are extremely nice and will treat you with the utmost respect. I can joke around with Josh (which I do a lot) yet still get the most out of every workout. They will make sure that you are comfortable and that you are doing what you need to do in order to get results.

Maximize Results with the True AP “Starter Pack”

The “Starter Pack” is designed to help athletes maximize results, achieve new levels of performance, and keep them consistently working out.

This powerful package provides six group training and six private, 1-on-1 sessions for one flat fee and at a steep discount off of the regular priced programs.

There is some bad news… we can only take the first 10 who snatch up this crazy deal at each location.


Chantilly, Va

Group Training Offered Monday through Thursdays, and Saturdays

 The nZone (14550 Lee Road)

Purcellville, VA

 Group Training Offered Mondays and Wednesdays

 Olympus Gym (201 N Maple Ave #204)

Hagerstown, Md

Why do we include 1-ON-1 sessions in the “Starter Pack”?

  • Target Your Individual Needs and Goals. If you have specific needs, goals, or schedule that doesn’t fit directly into what we do in our group based offerings, this is the perfect way to maximize your progress.
  • More Advanced Training. Because each session will be in a 1-on-1 setting, this will allow for us to utilize more complex movements that can’t be part of larger group sessions.
  • Accelerated Results. More individual attention and higher-skill movements mean that we can truly “release the brakes” and get you the fastest results possible.

 

The “Starter Pack” saves over 25% of the cost of these amazing programs if they were priced separately.

We have to limit this special offer to the first 10 as we introduce this program, so you’ll need to act fast.

Foam Roller Flow Routine (FREE Cheat Sheet)

 

Grab your foam roller and flow between 10 self-massage moves that hit your whole body. 

This routine will improve tissue quality and break up scar tissue, adhesions, and knots.

It’s ideal for tight muscles and achy joints and best performed pre/post-workout and anytime of day.

===> DOWNLOAD [Foam Roller] Cheat Sheet

Here’s how to do it: 

Perform each move for one minute with no rest between moves for 10 total minutes. Switch sides at the halfway 30-second mark for all single-sided exercises:

  1. Quadriceps L/R
  2. Hamstrings L/R
  3. Adductors L/R
  4. TFL/IT Band L/R
  5. Glutes L/R
  6. Calves L/R
  7. Shins L/R
  8. Shins (Lateral) L/R
  9. Lats L/R
  10. Thoracic (Upper/Mid-Back)
  • Pay attention to which areas of your body are most sore and tight and be sure to spend extra time on these areas at all other times pre/post-workout. Prioritizing your self-massage in this manner will provide you the biggest bang for you buck.
  • For knee pain, focus on #1, 4, 5 
  • For shoulder pain, focus on #9, 10
  • For back pain, focus on #2, 3, 5, and 10. #10 is also great for improving posture.
  • If you run/jump a lot and/or suffer from shin splits, focus on #6, 7 and 8.

I simply cannot stress enough the importance of daily self-massage. It will make you feel better, move better, and perform better.

If you’re serious about changing your body, feeling better, and making serious gains in the weight room and on the field/court, then “self-massage” days are a must.

After all, you’re only as strong as how well you allow yourself to recover.

Athlete Spotlight: Gabi Walker

What motivated you to start training at TrueAP?

As a 3rd degree Blackbelt in Taekwondo, I had competed in the last 5 USAT National Championships, AAU national Championships, International Tournaments, and dozens of local and regional tournaments. I made the decision in Jan 2018 to leave competitive Taekwondo and shift to a team sport I could play in high school, volleyball.  I was used to a very high level of training and competition, so I was looking for a training regimen that I could focus on for that. We found TrueAP in June 2019 after my first year of high school and club volleyball. It took me that year to figure out what I needed to specifically train on to be successful in volleyball, and TrueAP offered everything I needed. From speed, agility, and conditioning training to specific skills training in vertical jump training with Vertimax, TrueAP had everything I was looking for under one roof.

What results have you seen since?

My coaches have seen a significant improvement in my overall strength & conditioning. I am more fluid and quick on the court, and my vertical jump has increased 4 inches so far. I was able to make the jump from the freshman team to the varsity team with just one year of total playing time. It was clear the focus on my body since June with TrueAP has led to a very noticeable development in my volleyball skill set.

What specific aspect of our program do you like most?

The coaches in the program. Always going out of their way to work around my schedule, always rooting and being invested in my success. I have always loved working out and training, but the coaches here have always made it fun and worthwhile, even when I didn’t really feel like going in one day, I always left glad I went in.

Why would you recommend other athletes train with TrueAP? 

TrueAP is always willing to work on what you specifically want or need to work on. They are invested in your desire to improve, are not pushy, but will make you work. The effort both you and the coaches put into your training will pay off, and it feels like a team effort when I work with them.

Is there anything else you’d like to add about your experience with us?

Just want to say thank you so far. My club coaches, high school coaches, parents and teammates have all noticed the real changes in my game since I began training full time again. It has been fun, grueling, and I signed up for more…

3 Reasons to Integrate VertiMax into Your Training

VertiMax is the leading vertical jump and speed training system currently being used by 70% of the NFL, 60% of the NBA, and 80% of Division I colleges across the country.

Regardless of the sport, VertiMax elevates an athlete’s ability to generate force faster to create a more competitive athlete at any level.

Here are 3 important reasons why you should integrate VertiMax into your training:

  • VertiMax is a new and different type of training system! An advanced form of plyometrics that is 6X more effective at developing explosive power than traditional plyometrics.
  • It will get you results you’re not getting now! VertiMax is a new and separate type of training called “Light Load, High Speed” training which can’t be performed with weights or traditional plyometrics.
  • You’re going to see those results were it counts – during competition! VertiMax is a functional trainer that allows you to simultaneously load and train multiple body parts with sports specific motions and at sports specific speeds to develop all muscle groups required to make those game winning moves.

We are taking a maximum on 5 athletes that are looking to develop SPEED, increase vertical JUMP ability and become more EXPLOSIVE utilizing the VertiMax system.
