S3 Training Programs

All of our programs are created with the S3 FrameworkThe S3 Framework stands for the Self Secure System. It is centered on the belief that we should and need to perform activities that develop our individual security and confidence in our capabilities, whether it be to be a better student, athlete, parent, or to defend ourselves. When we are developing security and confidence, we are more likely to take care of our bodies and minds and less likely to be involved with activities that will conflict with these goals.




Recommended for ages 11-18 involved in youth, amateur, or advanced sports programs. This program is designed to build the athletic foundation in strength, speed, and stamina.

Our program includes an integrated, five-point approach:

1) Assess individual Movement Patterns and General Fitness: We begin with assessing individual movement pattern ranges of motion and any current limitations. We will also evaluate general strength and fitness levels through a few measures to include core strength, balance and stability, general pushing and pulling strength, and grip strength. This provides a baseline measure from which to assess improvements in mechanical performance.

2) Develop and Reinforce proper Mechanics: Re-enforcing proper body mechanics is paramount for sports performance success, whether the movements are sports-specific, or strength training mechanics. We will continuously assess the individual’s aptitude and technique efficiency through a hierarchy of movements beginning with body weight-based movements and including external resistance aided movements such as barbells, dumbbells, kettle-bells, resistance bands and other odd objects based implements.

3) Develop Absolute Strength: Our program centers on building a strong foundation through maximal strength. This is vital to the success of the athlete and crucial in order to add in additional strength performance qualities, such as explosiveness and endurance. Absolute strength requires the individual to generate as much force as possible, irrespective of time or weight class, to perform a single, all-out effort (e.g., a 1RM). The method by which we perform this is through maximal effort. We plan for, and include, maximal strength measures as part of our program.

4) Develop Explosive Strength: To develop explosive strength, we focus on movements that require a strong rate of force development. Most athletic endeavors require some form of explosiveness in the form of jumping, throwing, sprinting, swinging an object, punching, etc. We include many variations of these in our program to learn how to generate a high rate of force.

5) Develop Work Capacity: Also known as “Power”, this is the amount of work an individual can perform over a period of time. We improve power output/work capacity through workout drills designed to test the individual to perform a fixed quantity of work (typically as fast as possible), or perform as much work as possible in a fixed amount of time (as much as possible).

Each workout will focus on one or more attribute leveraging the conjugate method of training. “Conjugate” means “to join together,” and combining multiple methods within a single workout can lead to a stronger, faster, more well-balanced body.  This combination of strength training qualities is a time-tested method for developing better athletic capabilities.

Individuals under the age of 18 interested in this training must schedule their assessment and obtain parental approval prior to beginning.
