Our programs are data-driven and designed to improve an athlete’s speed, strength, and overall skill, in addition to coaching them on their nutrition.

The DiamondFit Approach

Our approach to athletic training is based on identifying and  executing on opportunities for each athlete to improve their strength, speed, and skill. When a player performs an athletic movement such as a jump shot or a block, there is more going on than simply basketball technique. Different muscle groups are being recruited to enable the athlete to leap higher, or run faster. Our team identifies the muscle groups that are important to each specific sport and develops a customized training plan with the athlete to improve these areas. That can mean speed training on our high speed treadmill, or strength training on our weight racks. The more strength and flexibility we can develop in the athlete, the more their performance will improve. More strength and speed in our gym translates to more physicality and agility on the court.

The difference between training and practice

For basketball players or athletes of any sport, practice is incredibly important. The reason pros like Steph Curry can hit so many 3’s is a direct result of the hours and hours spent in the gym practicing that specific shot. The difference between basketball practice and basketball athletic training is that during a training session the player may never touch the ball. Athletic training is all about raising the athlete’s level of athletic conditioning so that when they step on the court they can execute complex sport-specific athletic movements more quickly and easily, and with more precision. Athletic training for basketball players translates into more speed on the court, more endurance for moving up and down the court, and more physicality and strength when wrestling for a ball or defending a rebound.
