The STEP program boosted my speed, quickness, and cardio and greatly increased my flexibility."
- G.P. Adrian (a STEP patient)
"The STEP program helped me reach my full potential as an athlete and as a player. The STEP program helped my game reach varsity level."
This unique athletic program offered by the Glendale Adventist Therapy & Wellness Center is individually designed for an athlete's specific sport and position within that sport in order to optimize athletic performance and minimize the risk of injury.STEP is composed of exercise regimens for enhancing the potential of athletes involved in:
Tennis and other racquet sports
Water polo and swimming
Track and field
Groups of two to six adult athletes participate in various strength, agility and plyometric training stations. The STEP stations are designed to build camaraderie and optimize teamwork while individually enhancing each athlete's potential. Each athlete is initially evaluated by a sports physical therapist for clearance into STEP. Once cleared, nationally certified athletic trainers and exercise physiologists implement an individually designed functional training program for the group of athletes. One-on-one training sessions are also available.
All athletes will be able to monitor their progress through daily exercise sheets and quantify their functional gains through pre- and post-standardized testing that is based on the following eight objective measures:
40-yard dash time
Biodex Isokinetic testing
