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 an athlete be quick and powerful regardless of position. We train to improve the interconnectedness the core and fast twitch muscle fibers, allowing for a stronger and more efficient athlete on the playing field.
Endurance and the ability to incorporate short bursts of speed are needed of the elite soccer players. 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 important aspects that are needed by the track & field athlete. BEAST looks to mold a program that touches most closely the aspects of an athlete’s main events.
HOW WE DO IT
Improving technique in young athletes is critical in exponential speed, strength, and explosiveness gains. At BEAST, we work to breakdown movements and focus on the individual aspects of movements that athletes will make while in 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, on the foundation of helping 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.
