Sports performance & athlete development
FOR OVER A DECADE NOW, SYNERGY HAS BEEN A PROUD SUPPORTER, SPONSOR AND HEAD STRENGTH & CONDITIONING FACILITY FOR HUNDREDS OF ATHLETES, TEAMS AND ORGANIZATIONS IN THE FREDERICTON AND SURROUNDING AREA. WE WORK CLOSELY WITH SPORT TEAM COACHES, YOUTH ATHLETES, NATIONAL TEAM ATHLETES AND WORLD TEAM MEMBERS.
Our facility provides 24 hour athlete support to accommodate heavy sport and practice schedules, an extensive set of “open” hours where our coaching team are actively on the gym floor interacting with the athletes and we provide full programming and injury management services.
Our athletes range from 10 years old to elite athletes. Beginners, individual sport, and team sport athletes all call our facility their home for enhancing their athletic potential and improving their presence in their respective sport.
Power, strength, speed, aggression, work capacity and durability are the key variables we focus on with our athletes. Many athletes are dominant in one or more of these physical traits, but are lacking in other areas. It is our job as coaches to recognize when an athlete does not need to “get faster”, but rather needs to improve stability, strength, add muscle mass and improve body coordination. Only then can many new or younger athletes build on this foundation and develop a higher level of speed and power for their respective sport.
Another example, may be an athlete who is strong, heavily muscled and able to express force quickly, yet needs to improve their conditioning and work capacity to maintain these qualities for the duration of a competition, game, match, etc… Many examples exist and needs vary dramatically many times. It is for this reason that we manage programming on an individual basis for our athletes. This allows us to ensure appropriate loading and exercise selection, and that a given individuals current state of readiness and preparation are taken into account.
