Phase 1: Assessment
Every athlete will be subject to an initial screening prior to the start of training. This practice will help 360 trainers identify the difficulty level of activities as well as measure the athlete’s mental and physical state prior to tailoring an individual training program to best fit their needs. We will review the three target areas—Visual, Psychological and Physical—that make up the 360 protocol.
Sensory and Brain Program
Seconds before any physical action, the outcome is already being determined. Athletes take in information from various senses. The brain simultaneously processes and prioritizes this input in context to their knowledge, experience and strategy to make performance-critical decisions. For the best result, sense and process must happen efficiently before the body even starts to move.
Sport Psych Program
An athlete’s mental thinking is as vital, if not more significant, than physical ability to succeed in sports. The trick to learning to stay in the present is by clearing the mind from external and internal distraction to maximize performance on any given day.
Motor Response and Skills Program
Athletic movement can only be expressed when an athlete has a strong, symmetrical, and stable body. Optimizing foundational movement is the cornerstone of our approach to performance development. By assessing an athlete’s quality of movement we can accurately apply the correct intervention to restore movement, remove risk of injury and increase durability in their game.
Phase 3: Result
Building better athletes requires more than a one-size-fits-all training program. When 360 knows and understands everything about an athlete, from their strengths to their challenges and from their brains to their bodies, trainers can prescribe a complete and dynamic improvement model designed to optimize the performance of that athlete, whatever the sport.
Phase 4: Action
Showtime. This is where the athlete applies the knowledge gained through 360 training and runs with it. The output that results from following the 360 Athlete protocol is entirely up to the individual, but will be evident in any physical expression of athletic performance that reflects the results of hard work and the mental confidence that comes with becoming a better athlete.
