Led by Jude Massillon, a Level 3 coach of USA Track and Field and trusted counselor to Olympians and NFL players, Sports Performance Group takes a scientific approach to improving athletic performance. In a little over an hour, a biomechanical evaluation that features a kinetic-chain point assessment helps trainers identify any issues with athletes' natural body motions or senses of balance. Coaches then draw up workouts based on both the results of the evaluation and the trainee's primary sport, so lacrosse players work on speed and agility and runners work on not tying their shoelaces to battleship anchors. Each training session lasts an hour and starts with a flexibility warm-up before revving up to speed training and plyometrics.

Complimentary childcare and free steamy beverages from the lounge and café evince the club's hospitable mission.
For more than a decade, the classes at HotYoga4You Rockville Centre have helped practitioners stretch out over the course of 90 minutes. But, in the fast-paced world of yoga instruction, tradition is secondary to innovation. Responding to the popular demands of their students, the center's instructors now offer a brand-new 60-minute version of their signature class. The hour-long classes include the same poses and breathing as their 90-minute counterparts. By shaving off the excess 30 minutes, instructors save their students some precious time, which they can then use for important business such as picking the kids up from soccer practice or building a scale replica of the soccer stadium out of old game programs.
