Do Not Wait for Tryouts to Start Conditioning

Waiting for tryouts to get your conditioning in?

That might be a mistake…

On the first day of practice it won’t be her conditioning she will be working on.

She will be able to immediately focus on her skill.

Riley Ebenroth is at Emerge killing her strength and conditioning workouts, getting ready for her senior year at St. Dominic for Soccer.

A Core Stability Exercise

Cleveland Browns defensive back and former Lindenwood standout Pierre Desir works on his core stability at Emerge.

This guy needs to put his full force directly into an opposing player with a tackle. Any movement outside of neutral in his form constitutes a loss in energy and a weaker hit.

In these exercises, Pierre works on producing AND stopping force while keeping a neutral spine with a solid and stiff core.

It’s Your Turn. Emerge.

Taylor Dalby’s Client: Sydney P.’s Swim Meet

Update on cliebt Sydney P. Another very successful meet this weekend. Sydney dropped 13.6 seconds across 3 of her 8 events. She took home a first place ribbon in one event, two 2nds and three 3rds. She swam a 500 freestyle for the first time ever and placed a very close second. The biggest noticeable improvements that she is showing is her power coming off the blocks as well as on her turns. Awesome job Sydney! You are very fun to train and a great student of the gym. This is just the beginning. I look forward to your continued success!

What’s Your Reason: Jerry Pirtle

“What’s Your Reason”

When Emerge started the “What’s Your Reason” campaign, I wanted to highlight Jerry. Over the past few years, he has made DRASTIC changes and it’s always inspiring to see him training with Adam.

Keelin’s Speed & Agility Camp

I am blown away by the progress that the high school girls in the Speed and Agility camp have made in just a few short weeks!
Tonight’s workout demonstrated how far they’ve come in ladder work, strength, and core stability. And there’s no better way to cap off a great workout than with some silverback relays
