What is performance Enhancement?


Performance enhancement is a comprehensive integrated approach to training, reconditioning, exercise, and fitness. The focus of performance enhancement is to improve overall functional abilities and/or physical body composition. This may include improving: flexibility, strength, power, endurance, coordination, balance, agility, speed, and body composition (lean muscle mass vs. body fat tissue). Performance enhancement utilizes exercise principles that are progressive and based on scientific as well as empirical research. Performance Enhancement Specialists are trained to provide you with a thorough assessment and then develop a customized exercise program that can help you meet your individual performance and/or fitness needs and goals.
