When it comes to using correct form during a workout, athletes might check themselves in a mirror or get subjective advice from a trainer. Absolute Kinetix Sports Science & Biomechanics Center takes these techniques a step further. Using motion-capture technology similar to that used to develop video games, experts analyze a 3D model of each client to suss out muscle imbalances, potential injury zones, and inefficient form. With this super-specific information, they're able to advise clients on the best ways to achieve their goals, whether that's adjusting the hips before a golf swing, performing special exercises to strengthen weak muscles, or practicing gymnastics until they can recreate scenes from The Matrix. The center showcases this expertise in Fitness From the Ground Up, an easy-to-follow talk show hosted by sports kinesiologist Zig Ziegler. During each show, Ziegler works with guests to demonstrate just how unique the human body is, letting viewers watch both correct and incorrect movements as the show’s guests perform activities, such as running or swinging a golf club, with the motion-capture equipment.
Helping athletes unlock their potential requires support, guidance, and coaching that emphasizes the importance of developing character as well as fundamental skills. Empowerment Through Sports embraces this approach, offering training intended to help young men and women become more confident individuals both on the football field and in everyday life. The organization offers leagues for children between the ages of 6 and 14, giving kids weeks of dedicated instruction as well as opportunities to apply that knowledge by either playing against other teams or scrimmaging with incorporeal opponents. After providing budding athletes with this experience, the coaches from Empowerment Through Sports hope that children will continue to embrace the organization's values as they go on to play for their schools' teams.
