Spark Fitness

Spark Sports Performance Training

How are you different from other Trainers?

No gimmicks, no tricks, no fancy machines, and no rushing into things. Safe, effective, and personalized training are the principles and foundation of Spark. There is a ton of misinformation out there when it comes to fitness and a lot of people trying to earn a quick buck. Our goal is to not only give you the best training but also help you understand the facts and fictions of fitness. We understand that fitness is a lifestyle and what you do outside the gym is just as important as what you do inside the gym. Nutritional guidance, education, and results are what you get when you train at Spark.Do you charge extra for nutritional guidance and a diet plan?

We offer nutritional guidance as a part of your package. Nutrition is just as important as exercise and if we aren't helping you with that then we're really not providing you a full service.

Why the focus on free weights?

Free weights and Olympic movements are the ultimate way to develop power and speed. While running ladders, running with bands, etc. look really cool they really only make you better at that skill. Form work for running is great and we do incorporate it into our training, however this is only going to take you so far. The only way to improve past this point is with weight training.

What if I have never lifted a weight before?

Are you a beginner or do you occasionally get on a treadmill or elliptical, but you’ve never actually lifted weights before? Don’t worry, we all start somewhere; you’re not going to be thrown to the wolves. We will ease you into our programs, and before you know it you will be lifting numbers you never believed you could.

What do you mean by preparing for the next level?

When athletes go to a Division 1 level college training takes a whole new level. It's no longer about just putting time on the field, a large portion of your work is done in the gym. Having trained athletes at Appalachian State, Wake Forest University, and Winston Salem State, we know how to prepare you for this leap as well as giving you an advantage on all your competition.

How old do you need to be?

We start training kids as early as 8 years old. While they will not be lifting any heavy weight at this age, it is a great time to get their mobility patterns set to give them a head start later. Staying flexible and adding some strength is going to keep them from having injuries down the road. Also, it is easier to teach mobility patterns at an early age than to fix incorrect form later.

Why does my kid need strength training?

It has been proven that including lifting activities in a child’s life greatly increases the child’s chances of advancing in sports. By developing strength and a solid core foundation it will greatly increase their likelihood of making advanced teams such as high school, college, and even professional. We offer specific sport training for athletes to increase quickness, flexibility, jumping ability, and strength to give them the advantage they need to succeed. Children’s bodies can change a lot while they’re growing; not only is this a peak time to give them a solid foundation that will be with them their entire lives but it is also peak time for children to lose some of their abilities without adequate training. For example, it’s not uncommon for children to lose speed when they hit a growth spurt, but we can help get them that speed back!
