Athletic Conditioning: Two words athletes can’t bare to hear. How replacing them with ‘Cardio Sport’ can make all the difference for your club soccer program.
As many of you know, running or conditioning work is not considered to be ‘fun’ for most people. However, it is essential to an athlete in order to be able to play a sport, and to play it well. The majority of athletes dread ‘cardio’. They moan and groan during practices that involve running laps or any activity that requires movement without the ball. Finally! Coaches! We have a way to get your athletes to strive harder without them feeling like its a just a task they need to accomplish. Cardio Sport takes the ‘work’ out of ‘working out’ and replaces it with the feeling of play, which is why athletes choose to participate in sports to begin with.
This week’s featured soccer club has experienced the Cardio Sport difference. These soccer coaches knew their players would elevate their physical fitness, but where they saw a significant difference, was in their speed of execution and ‘in the game’ decision making.
The unique and non-competitive environment Cardio Sport creates gives athletes the ability to push themselves harder than they would in a typical practice setting.
Cardio Sport’s number one objective, especially when used for athletic conditioning, is to increase an athlete’s Athletic Intelligence, or, speed of execution. Such a trait is what separates the good players from the elite ones. Cardio Sport uses a number of different purposeful techniques that distract athletes from the amount of effort they’re putting in, while also demanding extreme focus from each participant. The combination of the two results in unparalleled physical shape, and increased Athletic Intelligence. As the body becomes more fatigued, generally bad plays are made and poor decisions are executed. However, the more an athlete trains in the Cardio Sport environment, the more their decision making improves as they fatigue.
The unique and non-competitive environment Cardio Sport creates gives athletes the ability to push themselves harder than they would in a typical practice setting, with superior mental and physical training results…And best of all; without the moaning and groaning!
