FASTER Athletics ProgramDuring the summer months, Trinity Sports Medicine is very excited to offer our Faster Athletics program to area schools! This summer program is very affordable and will have a great impact on any athlete. FASTER represents:
Flexibility, Agility and Strength Together Equal Ready. We have designed this program as an injury prevention and performance enhancement package. It is not designed as a heavy lifting program but instead to provide overall strength, agility, flexibility and core strength gains. Our Sports Medicine Staff has identified common injury problems at our schools and have incorporated activities to address these issues. Our FASTER Athletics program was rolled out in 2006 and we have seen GREAT results with our athletes including improved strength and speed as well as decreased injury potential!
Benefits of the FASTER athletics program
