Young athletes have different set of needs than older folks.
Not only physically, but tech-wise as well.
In Lombard, IL, there exists a fitness center that caters specifically to this young demographic.
Gone are the days when athletes or their trainers must remember the exercise regime or past results.
Using tablets with specialized software, this information is tracked.
There are also more than 500 age and sport specific programs.
Sports include softball, basketball, rugby and even archery.
The information can be assessed remotely so parents can see their children’s progress also.
This program resulted as a core group of parents joined with a kinesiologist to develop fitness programs.
The goal was to concentrate on speed, agility, quickness and strength.
