Sports Performance Physical Therapy Raleigh-Durham, Fayetteville & Surrounding North Carolina Cities

BreakThrough offers a truly unique experience with Personal Training and Sports Performance.

We have experienced trainers that utilize Postural Restoration Institute methodology and principles to simultaneously realign your posture while working towards any goal you have. We take a very individualized, purposeful, and analytical approach to personal training to give you a full idea of where you are at when you start. We will continue to build upon the baseline we establish to maximize progress towards your goals.

How Does Personal Training Work?

Day 1: FREE Initial Consultation

  • Your goals, aspirations, & history with exercise
  • Explanation of our approach with Postural Restoration Institute
  • Discussion of expectations, habit development

Day 2: Body Composition (via Styku Technology), Postural Assessment, & Nutrition Overview

Postural Assessment via Postural Restoration Institute methodology.

Here we will determine how your body is aligned to put together the pieces of your exercise/activity history and what sensitive areas need to be addressed. Exercises will be given to immediately help address the root causes of dysfunction.

Based on the Styku assessment and a comprehensive review of your current/past diet history, we will put together a nutrition plan for you that will be based on your goals in our program.

Day 3: Movement Quality Assessment, Aerobic Fitness Baseline Assessment, and Strength/Power Assessment

Movement quality assessment given via Functional Movement Screen (FMS) protocol that will provide an objective score of your ability to move through basic movement patterns such as a squat, lunge, and rotary stability.

Aerobic and breathing assessment via a Step Test, spirometer or Vo2 Test. This will provide us a baseline to reference back on as you progress.

The strength and power assessments will give you us an indication of a baseline from which we can build from. This will give the trainer the information needed for optimal exercise selection for your program.

After the tests have been concluded and the program has been established, the personal trainer will provide the client with a comprehensive overview of exactly what the tests mean, how it impacts their programming, and a reference point to look back at as we progress. We will take a Styku measurement every 6 weeks to ensure consistent measurements of progress. Every client will have access to their program via our Teambuildr app for easy access at home or on the road.

Sports Performance Team Training

Who Is It For?

Teams looking to decrease their risk of injury and perform better through proper exercise prescription. We work with athletes to form a cohesive team, working towards a common goal: improvement in the team’s athletic abilities through the design of a movement based warm-up, core activation, stability drills, power drills, agility, strengthening, and mobility.

How Does It Work?

We build team skills, strengthening everything from linear speed, multi-directional movement, balance, and explosiveness. Our team training spans a number of sports and is custom designed for each teams’ unique needs and weaknesses. Each athlete is assigned workouts through our Teambuildr app with proprietary videos.

What Are the Benefits?

Team training will synergize communications and hone your teams skills and abilities with the elite athletic training at Breakthrough Sports Performance. Our specialized programs focus on eliminating your team’s weaknesses, while enhancing and identifying the strengths and opportunities that will be the game changer your team has been looking for. Results generally produce noticeable increases in speed, vertical power, functional strength, and less time on the injured list.
