About Fast Athlete USA
Why Fast-Twitch Isokinetic Training?
In the past, the attempt to improve speed, strength and explosive power was limited to plyometric and eccentrically loaded exercise programs. One major disadvantage of eccentrically loaded exercise programs is the threat of injury. The load on your joints and stretch on muscles they cause can break down your neuro-muscular system and limit the speed at which you can safely train.
The difference with our high-speed isokinetics training is the use of concentric loading and accurate control of angular velocity through the full range of motion. The muscles experience constant resistance through the full range of motion which results in greater strength gains especially at higher velocities.
Traditionally, maximal oxygen uptake (V02 max) has been viewed as the key component to success in prolonged exercise activies. However, more recently scientists have reported that Lactate Threshold (LT) is the most consistent predictor of performance in endurance events, or sustaining athletic performance throughout an entire game. In addition, training with resistance at high speeds brings with it an anaerobic workout with aerobic benefits. The result is a higher LT and an increase in the number of neuro-muscular pathways from the brain to the fast-twitch muscle fibers, which enables you to run faster, jump higher and perform at peak levels longer.
Best of all, our training program delivers an intense workout with no residular muscle soreness. This is due to the fact that there is no load on your joints and stretch on your muscles under tension, making this method of conditioning ideal in or out of season.
• Greater Lactate Threshold (LT)
• Increases neuro-muscular pathways to fast-twitch muscles
• Delivers intense workout with no muscle soreness
• Increases quickness, explosive strength, and endurance
• State-of-the-art isokinetic equipment
• Displays performance data in real-time
• Individualized training program
• Personal attention
Why Fast Athlete USA?
Our high-speed isokinetic training system involves a variety of hydraulic based machines that are concentric load only. This allows you to safely train muscle groups at the same high speed in which they perform on their field of play. It is this unique format that provides an immediate and deliberate training of the central nervous system and the recruitment of fast twitch muscle fibers, which will increase your speed of reaction. Many years have been dedicated to the design and development of our line of TEKS equipment. The core technology of TEKS is the bidirectional resistance action that is linked to an advanced Computer Managed Training System (CMTS) to provide real-time information as you perform the exercise. To date this is the only resistance training system of its kind in the world and it is currently available at Fast Athlete USA.
Located in South Tempe, Arizona, we offer individualized training programs for performance, general fitness and rehabilitation. Additionally, our facility is located adjacent to Performance Physical Therapy which allows us to offer you a full range of services.
