Great River Medical Center's Athletic and Performance Center sets the standard for improved athletic performance in the region. Our program's professionals help athletes excel by using:

  • Sound scientific principles
  • Proven training techniques
  • Sophisticated equipment

We understand no two athletes or patients are the same. That’s why our physicians and trainers work one-on-one with them develop the treatment, training and education that best suits their personal goals and well-being.

Sports Enhancement

Our Athletic and Performance Center offers individual and group services that emphasize education, carefully monitored improvement plans and established techniques to increase speed, agility, strength and endurance.

Our goal is to build complete athletes by focusing on sport-specific movements at game speed. Our certified strength and conditioning specialists, and athletic trainers focus on drills that address quickness, reaction time, dynamic flexibility and postural strength.

Get personalized training and assessments

We train our athletes to perform well in their chosen sports. Programs are based on the movements, skills and energy systems used in specific sports.

Our sport-specific programs:

  • Baseball and softball throwing
  • Football power training
  • Soccer agility
  • Speed work for all sports
  • Volleyball conditioning

We provide athletic team training

We can help you assess the fitness and skill levels of your teams by having them complete a traditional combine experience to test:

  • Agility
  • Flexibility
  • Power
  • Speed
  • Strength

Combines conducted early during preseason training and again just before the season begins can be a valuable resource for assessing improvements.
