At S24 Labs, we apply the science of physics and physiology with resulting performance metrics as the foundation for all of our athlete training programs. By combining the latest in speed force protocols that derive from more than 75 years of Olympic Games performance research, our professional coaches have the ability to produce scalable, measurable and sustainable results that will translate immediately into the competitive environment.
Depending on the location, each training session is 45, 60, or 90-minutes in length and will include hands-on individualized training in a group setting. The athlete will be taken through assessments in their first training session to get a baseline of where they are at and better help the instructors in providing a training program. After the assessments are over, S24 Labs will then breakdown and provide data for the athlete to help them see where their deficiencies are at. Every training session after, the athlete will walk in and have a program for them to follow with the trainer. The athlete will use state of the art technology that are all considered leaders in their respective spaces.
