Sports Performance and Fitness Programs
At UPMC Sports Medicine, our sports performance and fitness programs strive to enhance human movement and correct imbalances in sports and life.
From movement assessments to sport-specific training, we have the right program to help both individuals and teams improve their athletic skills.
Functional movement assessment
UPMC Sports Performance experts believe an in-depth functional movement assessment (FMA) can help find problems that are keeping athletes from reaching their peak. Then, we can provide ways to increase athletic performance.
- 40/60 yard dash (electronic timing system)
- Broad jump
- Pro-Agility drill
- Vertical jump
- Pull ups
We use the data from the FMA to create a safe, scientifically based strength and conditioning program that fits each athlete's unique needs.
We also offer:
- Gait assessments.
- Body fat analysis (Skin fold).
- Sport-specific video to analyze movement patterns.
