TTR Performance is the department of The Training Room Sports and Orthopaedic Physical Therapy that specializes in fitness and sports performance for all abilities, ages 7 through adult.
Our scientifically designed training programs are based on current research to enhance the physical abilities of young athletes throughout childhood and adolescence to maximize athletic success at physical maturity.
The importance of not treating children like “miniature adults” owing to clear differences in physical growth and stature is well documented (1). Therefore, the content of our curriculum and the delivery of it by our professionally trained and qualified staff is markedly different throughout the various developmental stages of our younger athletes from that of fully matured adults.
Contrary to previous concerns, it is now widely accepted that children can safely and effectively participate in strength training, when prescribed and supervised by appropriately qualified personnel (2, 3, 4). Scientific research has also found that a properly designed and implemented youth strength and conditioning program is not only beneficial for performance enhancement but also for reducing the risk of sport-related injuries (1, 5, 6, 7,8, 9). Safely and effectively maximizing athletic potential and preventing injuries for athletes of all ages and abilities is our priority!
Critical components of our sports performance training programs are fundamental movement skills, sport specific skills, mobility, speed, strength, strength, power, agility, fitness and metabolic conditioning. These components delivered by our professional and qualified staff at the right time and the right way, are sure to help maximize anyone’s athletic potential.
Our commitment to excellence, attention to detail, emphasis on education, desire to serve, state-of-the-art facilities, and integration with physical therapy and sports medicine is our formula for success.
TTR Performance also offers programs for elite and professional athletes as well as active adults and post-injury patients. So wherever you are in your journey to achieve your physical, performance or athletic goals, we can help you get there!
