Functional Training

In parternship with DESMOTEC and under the expert guidance of David Migliore with Evolution Sports Lab, we now offer conditioning and functional training services particularly focused on youth athlete development.

With his detailed and pro­gres­sive approach to train­ing, David Migliore has helped improve ath­let­ic per­for­mance for many ath­letes in sports such as soc­cer, base­ball, foot­ball, lacrosse, bas­ket­ball, ten­nis, vol­ley­ball and soft­ball. Many of his ath­letes have moved on to the col­le­giate lev­el and have excelled at their sport. His pas­sion is teach­ing young ath­letes the fun­da­men­tals of ath­leti­cism which leads to keep­ing them injury free. David fol­lows the same train­ing approach for adults who choose to remain active and want to live a health­i­er life. Using cut­ting edge meth­ods, David has designed train­ing pro­grams spe­cif­ic to the athlete’s sport and injury risk fac­tors.  Sam­ple Top­ics Cov­ered: Accel­er­a­tion & Speed Mechan­ics (Form Run­ning), Improve first-step Quick­ness in any direc­tion, Increase Foot Speed, Ath­let­ic Bal­ance & Coor­di­na­tion, Increase Change of Direc­tion effi­cien­cy, Func­tion­al Total Body Strength, Injury Pre­ven­tion Exer­cis­es (ACL, Rota­tor Cuff, etc…). David holds a BS degree in Exer­cise Sci­ence from GA State Uni­ver­si­ty and is a NSCA Cer­ti­fied Per­son­al Train­er.

DESMOTEC isoin­er­tial train­ing is a rev­o­lu­tion­ary resis­tance train­ing tech­nol­o­gy that was ini­tial­ly devel­oped to com­bat mus­cle and bone loss dur­ing NASA space trav­el.  This sys­tem deliv­ers proven results in both con­di­tion­ing and reha­bil­i­ta­tion pro­grams. DESMOTEC has been adopt­ed by many first tier elite ath­letes, nation­al sports fed­er­a­tions,  pro­fes­sion­al sports fran­chis­es, and sport clubs such as:  Juven­tus FC, Paris SG, Mon­tre­al Impact (video HERE), Mia­mi FC, Indi­anapo­lis Colts, Mia­mi Dol­phins, Wash­ing­ton Cap­i­tals,  Brook­lyn Nets, Mon­tre­al Cana­di­ans and most recent­ly also the USA Ski and Snow­board Fed­er­a­tion.  In addi­tion, DESMOTEC pro­pri­etary soft­ware pro­vides users with com­plete con­trol over the train­ing ses­sion via a safe, pro­gres­sive, and mon­i­tored path.

Sci­en­tif­ic stud­ies on isoin­er­tial train­ing have shown that this type of train­ing stim­u­lates more mus­cle growth and strength and results in a high­er degree of mus­cle acti­va­tion by the ner­vous sys­tem com­pared to tra­di­tion­al weight train­ing (Down­load Desmotec Sci­en­tif­ic Articles_Abstract) .This tech­nol­o­gy there­fore helps ath­letes improve their strength and flex­i­bil­i­ty and results in opti­mal per­for­mance while reduc­ing the risk of injury – in Soc­cer, Amer­i­can Foot­ball and Hock­ey, this is par­tic­u­lar­ly effec­tive for ham­string and ACL injuries. And because of the absence of exter­nal weight/pressure on the skele­tal sys­tem, this train­ing is ide­al for youth ath­lete mus­cu­lar devel­op­ment as well.    Over­all ben­e­fits for ath­letes include:

  • Improved CORE sta­bil­i­ty – video HERE
  • Improved range of motion
  • Improved strength
  • Improved mus­cle mass gain
  • Reduced future sore­ness
  • Reduced risk of injury
