Sports Performance and Fitness Programs

Elaine L.

This review is for the Sports Performance Program that Gwen organizes. My 15 year old daughter started training with Gwen when she was 12 years old. She started off as one of the youngest athletes in the class. Gwen and her coaches made her feel at ease and walked her through the various exercises with patience, humor and professionalism. Fast forward 3 years later and Chloe is still energized after leaving a workout and looks forward to her next class.

At HealthWest Physical Therapy, we are dedicated to helping athletes of all levels reach their optimum level of physical performance. Sports Performance has been a passion of Gwen’s since she played Division I Volleyball for the University of Missouri. As she was first introduced to the weight room in college, she really began to understand the positive impact it had on her game. Since then, she has long thought how much that empowered her, and therefore wants to impact young athletes to get a head start with this type of training. The benefits are innumerable – strength, power, endurance, jump ability, speed, explosiveness, flexibility and injury prevention. From a health standpoint, it also benefits our growing generations by increasing bone density and ligament strength, boosting their personal confidence, and it teaches functional movement at a young age.
