SPORTS WE SERVE
If you are an elite athlete looking to improve your balance, explosion, agility, speed, and toughness, BEAST Performance is the place for your training. We focus on starting at the core and then working our way out to make sure that your entire body is being strengthened and learns to work together.
Our football training focuses on explosive movements, lateral quickness, and hip flexibility. Our football workout will integrate overarching principles along with position specific drills designed to improve player performance.
Baseball demands speed and power regardless of position. We train to improve the interconnectedness of core and fast twitch muscle fibers to produce a stronger and more efficient athlete on the playing field.
Soccer players need endurance and the ability to incorporate short bursts of speed. We use sport specific drills to develop these aspects and improve the player’s ability to effectively transition from one discipline to the other.
We’ve designed our training to improve an athlete’s fast twitch muscles, lateral movement, and vertical explosiveness. Basketball players must be able to react quickly with explosive movements, both laterally and vertically.
Our volleyball training is designed to focus on explosive jump training and improving lateral speed. Our workouts are geared to simulate game movements while applying resistance and forcing muscle groups to work against force.
TRACK & FIELD
Power, explosiveness, and speed are just a few of the essential skills for track & field success. BEAST tailors track & field training to help athletes realize improvement in their main events.
Athletic development is the foundation of BEAST Performance and this course provides cross-functional training to improve balance, endurance, agility, speed and technique (BEAST). Skills developed in this course apply to all sports, and classes include the use of VertiMax, speed treadmills, Vertec, plyometric boxes and other equipment designed to enhance athletic performance.
BEAST Performance strength training classes are designed to help athletes increase strength and power. Participants learn proper weight lifting techniques, and programming is customized for athletes based on age, experience, season and sport. Class sizes are small in order to ensure individual attention and personalized programming.
HOW WE DO IT
Improving technique in athletes is critical to achieve exponential gains in speed, strength, and explosiveness. At BEAST Performance, we work to break down and focus on individual movements to help athletes realize their potential and prepare for competition. Proper technique leads to increased performance and strength.
The VertiMax allows us to provide resistance jump training while improving form and explosiveness, which contributes to increases in speed, jumping ability and overall athleticism.
The core provides a pillar for the upper and lower half of the body to operate upon. We focus on unique exercises that activate core muscles and strengthen this integral part of the athlete.
These allow the athlete to focus on short bursts and quick lateral movement. Breaking down explosive movements allows us to coach athletes on proper form and technique.
Explosive Speed Dynamics
Technique is critical in being able to convert movement into explosive speed. We focus on each aspect of an running form and work to connect these elements resulting in peak speed improvement.
BEAST Performance was founded in 2011 to help young athletes reach their potential and peak performance on the field of play. We utilize sport specific training, combined with core development and explosive movement training to develop athletic performance.

BEAST Performance offers a number of different individualized plan to suit every athlete and their specific sport needs.
We understand that while there are common movements among most sports, there are also specialized movements and needs for each sport. We work to focus in on these sport specific skills by offering unique programs for each sport.
We utilize the VertiMax trainer and Speed Treadmill to simulate sport specific movements while providing resistance to the athlete. This allows the athlete to strengthen and refine these movements in a controlled environment. We also utilize therabands and resistance bands to provide resistance while work on more linear speed movements.
The VertiMax allows us to provide resistance jump training for athletes, while improving form and explosiveness. VertiMax is the most advanced light-load, high-speed training system designed to increase lower body reactive power. With VertiMax, athletes can quickly improve explosive leg power increasing their speed, jumping ability and overall athleticism.
This state-of-the-art self-propelled treadmill allows our athletes to work on speed development while teaching proper mechanics. The Force Treadmill allows us to improve the athlete’s running form by naturally getting the body to learn and experience foot interaction with the ground, while providing instantaneous feedback.
