MORE MUSCLES WORKED, LESS TIME
How-to videos below!
We've all been there, not enough time to do the workout we need. Let's face it, we don't all have time for "leg day" every week! Some days, we're lucky to even make it to the gym. So, how do you make the most of the time that you did manage to salvage for the gym?
Or... Preparing and Supporting Your Young Athletes for Success in Sports and Life
Adult athletes know that most of what you learn growing up in sports can be applied to life. As a parent, you can help to ensure that those lessons are learned. Here's 5 tips based on what I've seen from the parents of kids I train. I aim to reinforce all of these in my strength and conditioning training sessions!
FACT OR FICTION: EXERCISING IN A FASTED STATE BURNS FAT?
There is a circulating theory that exercising in a fasted state (empty stomach) will cause the body to burn more fat than in a fed state (eating at least 3 hours before exercise). This theory is very attractive to people wanting to lose weight, burn fat, and tone up. However, multiple studies show this approach to be counterproductive to losing fat and building muscle. In fact, most studies do not a find a difference in fat loss between fed and fasted state groups.
It's all about the macronutrients!
Outside of the gym, it is your job to supplement your body with the right food! Hopefully you already know to cut down processed foods, decrease sweets, and increase fruits and vegetables. But, what should you eat to tone your muscles and decrease body fat?
Tryouts for fall sports will be here in a month! What is going to make an athlete stand out at the try-outs and get them a spot on the team?
Hi, it's Zach from UNRIVALED Sports Performance at CLM. Summer is a great time for athletes to explore what can be done during the off-season to be better next year! One key component of training (off-season AND during season) is functional training. This applies to all athletes at any age!
Summer is in full bloom, and that often means a change in our routines. Whether it is more recreational time for yourself, a vow to get in better shape (maybe by taking up a new activity?), or you're between seasons in your sport of choice, we all tend to play more in the summer and move differently. This seems like a good time to open the discussion on sports injuries and how to prevent them.

You’ve finally gotten to the gym after a long day of sitting at a desk. Good news… you’re here! Bad news… you’re stiff. The best way to relieve this stiffness and prepare for exercise is to start a foam rolling routine. Please help yourself to a buffet of foam rollers in our foundations room, turf room, and second floor pilates studio. Can't spend that much time at the Club? Purchase your own to use at home from any sporting goods store.
