Ultimate Athlete Sports Performance Training Programs

Increase speed, strength, and power

The training programs here at ULTIMATE ATHLETE in Charlotte, NC are specifically designed for the serious athlete who understands the importance of a balanced, disciplined and scientifically-based set of protocols.

Selecting exercises and drills from a variety of the best training disciplines used in sports performance training today and sequencing them for maximized results, we’ve structured a speed and strength technology system that transforms athletes from any sport into ultimate athletes. The semi-private or small group environment in the training facility is high energy, motivational and competitive, yet still allows for an individual approach to fit the athletes’ needs.

  • Ultimate Speed & Strength

    This is our cornerstone performance program for athletes ages 12&up that participate in the following sport(s): football, basketball, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, volleyball, softball, track & field, wrestling, hockey and more. This program is equal parts speed & agility and strength & power designed for athletes looking to find their next level and maximize overall human performance.

    Increasing strength is critical to developing the complete athlete. Most programs do not value the strength component enough or simply do not focus on the right foundational exercises. Here at ULTIMATE ATHLETE, we value our speed and strength programs equally. We require all of our athletes to train in each discipline to reach their maximum potential. The protocols take on a holistic approach in a safe and age-appropriate curriculum.

  • Ultimate 360

    The ULTIMATE ATHLETE 360 program takes a well-rounded, holistic approach to training using all three energy systems. The program combines sprint training, interval training and overall aerobic capacity as the three catalysts to spearhead a one of a kind fitness program. Our 360 program is designed for active adults who are looking to still train like an athlete in a safe and effective environment. Hence the term 360, the program is extremely well-rounded incorporating strength training, metabolic training and overall fitness to obtain that lean, athletic look you are looking for.

    Increasing your vertical is about force into the ground (ground reaction force) and power output. Power is the combination of force and velocity. Our program will use a comprehensive and detailed strength program in addition to a variety of plyometrics and power drills using triple joint extension that mimic the athletes’ vertical jump. The program will focus on lower body strength, explosive power training, core strength, agility/reaction protocols and metabolic conditioning. When you put these elements together, you get a program that is specific to the volleyball players’ needs and one of a kind in the Charlotte area.
