Any type of sport demands a high level of skill and strength and, in order to advance, proper training is key. Although training in a gym or with a personal trainer does come with fitness benefits, it is common to practice improper techniques, over train, and use the wrong form of exercise for the type of results you would like to achieve.   Salt Lake Regional Medical Center, in conjunction with Sports Med Utah, has created an Acceleration Program to help athletes find their full potential by optimizing their training outcomes. The certified and licensed athletic trainers perform thorough assessments on each athlete to establish a performance baseline. From the assessment results, each athlete works with our athletic trainers to create a customized training program that is designed to improve overall power, increase agility, build strength and stability, and teach proper technique and injury prevention.

Customized training program may involve:

  • High-speed treadmill training
  • Plyometric training
  • Agility training
  • Strength training
  • Core stability training
  • Flexibility training

With an athletic trainer, the athlete will customize a training plan based on his or her assessment. The assessment provides a baseline for the athletic trainer to build on.

Pricing and program length

The Acceleration Program is $350.00 per athlete, and a discount is offered for groups of two to three. The program includes:

  • 5–8 week program
  • 16 sessions
  • Pre- and post-assessment
