It’s no secret today that athletes gain a competitive edge through training, improved sleep quality, and the right nutrition will see big improvements within their sport. This is what we do at ascend perform. We identify your strengths and your weaknesses that are holding you back. We help you match the demands of your training with your nutrition, and we always look for what is your optimal training frequency to elicit the appropriate training adaptations without developing staleness and over-training. We’ve been doing this for over two decades and have learned from some of the best strength coaches in the industry.
Coach Chris Grayson formerly ran his gym Urban Strength Institute in Chicago’s Lincoln Square neighborhood. He has relocated to Greenville South Carolina and opened Ascend Perform, a new personal training facility which embodies his passion for training, health, and community.
Alignment must precede everything. You should never build strength over a dysfunctional movement pattern. This will yield inefficient results or worse, lead to an injury in the future.
KPI’s are exercises or tests that highly transfer over to your sport. So we know if your kpi’s are improving your performance in your sport will improve.
We use the Train with Push app to collect all necessary data to establish a baseline or point of reference. From this we prescribe all the building blocks to an effective program designed for you, collect the data to show progress, and identify when the details of your program need to be changed.
Once you’ve gotten used to your program and results have slowed down we then make changes. This helps to ensure long-term results and also avoids staleness by providing variety.
All else being equal the stronger, faster, and more explosive athlete wins. You gain these qualities not in your sport but in your training. We identify what is your limiting factor with these qualities and then we train them to improve them. The results show up when you play your sport.
