What Makes Athletic Training and Conditioning, Inc. Different?

 

Athletic Training and Conditioning, Inc. is unique in that it is owned and directed by Joe Mullins, M.Ed., LAT, ATC – a Certified Athletic Trainer. An Athletic Trainer is a licensed health care provider who specializes in the evaluation, care, prevention, and rehabilitation of athletic injuries. Joe draws from 20 plus years of clinical experience treating athletic injuries to create and instruct athletic development / sports performance programs.

Athletic Training and Conditioning, Inc. uses a functional, whole body approach during the individualized assessment. This allows for the athlete’s entire movement pattern to be evaluated and planned for versus molding athletes into cookie cutter exercise programs. 

Athletic Training and Conditioning, Inc. uses a long term athletic development model progressing athletes through a systematic framework.

Our Programs are Based on a Long Term Athletic Development Model

 

Athletes have different physical demands depending on their sport, position, competition level, etc. From a skill standpoint it doesn’t make a lot of sense to expect a middle school athlete to be able to compete with a collegiate athlete. Physically, they are simply not the same.

Often times we see performance programs being implemented using the same programming and progressions for all athletes regardless of individual ability. Using the same analogy as above, if we don’t expect a middle school athlete to be able to compete with a collegiate athlete, why should we expect that same middle school athlete to be able to train like a collegiate athlete?

All of our programs address the following components of a long term athletic development process and are individually implemented based on the athlete’s current movement patterns:

ASSESSMENT / FOUNDATION ASSESSMENT / FOUNDATION
During this stage of the process, the athlete’s posture, balance, and movement patterns are evaluated.

FUNCTIONAL FLEXIBILITY FUNCTIONAL FLEXIBILITY
Athletes need flexibility to assume positions necessary for efficient and effective athletic movements. During this stage, adaptive shortening from faulty movement patterns or inactivity is addressed.

STABILITY / CONTROL STABILITY / CONTROL
Athletic movements are generally quick and ballistic in nature. This means energy from these movements has to be generated, controlled, and redistributed in a split-second. If the athlete’s ability to use his or her stability control mechanism (i.e. “core”), is compromised or is sub-optimally working, then both inefficient force production and decreased force redistribution occurs throughout the rest of the body. In other words, performance is compromised as a result.

EXTREMITY STRENGTH EXTREMITY STRENGTH
Once the previous stages have been addressed, external loads are imposed on the athlete’s body to facilitate extrinsic (away from the core) strength gains. Muscular endurance is also addressed during this stage.

KINETIC POWER KINETIC POWER
During this stage emphasis is placed on combining stability and strength into quicker, sport specific movement patterns.

PERFORMANCE PERFORMANCE
It is here that the athlete is executing the mastery of his or her efficient, effective, flexible (in appropriate areas), stable, strong, and powerful athletic movements.
