The Strength U facility in North Liberty, IA is unlike any other sports performance center in America. It was designed with several very specific goals in mind, and each of these provides a distinct training advantage for your athletes. With a combination of traditional strength training equipment and apparatus, such as dumbbells, barbells, squat racks and benches we have all the tools necessary to perform any of the movements taught by most performance coaches. However, we believe that the status quo does not allow young people to fully engage in the process, nor does it properly prepare their bodies to develop and perform as efficiently and safely as possible. For these reasons we have also included non-traditional, and in some cases one-of-a-kind pieces that are only found at the Strength U performance center. By utilizing some of the beneficial elements of gymnastics type training and the natural strength and movement development gained from playing on an old-fashioned playground,we are able to train each athlete in a way that will maximize their postural integrity and structural balance. These are the two keys to maximizing athletic potential and more importantly increasing the resistance to injury!
In addition, our facility has field space (coming in October) for movement, obstacle courses, speed, agility, conditioning and power development work, as well as a recovery area and space which can be dedicated to more formal classroom teaching sessions. With this integrated approach to training we believe that athletes flourish. Not only because they are receiving world-class training and coaching, but that they are also working in a “fun” environment while simultaneously being exposed to cutting-edge sports performance and mind coaching techniques. It is the complete integration of innovative strength, movement, nutrition and mental coaching that makes Strength U the premier sports performance center in the nation.
