Human Performance Center is a unique training environment because individualized training programs are created based on scientific principles for every client. There are no ‘cookie cutter, one size fits all’ workouts of the day at HPC. We focus on athleticism as a whole: biomechanics, injury risk reduction, flexibility, stabilization, balance, speed, agility, endurance, power, and strength. We take multiple items into consideration when designing a client’s program: goals, sport needs, career duties, outside training schedules, injury history, training experience, and athleticism strengths and weaknesses.
HPC has resources not seen anywhere else in El Paso including unweighting high speed treadmills.
Our high-speed treadmills are the only ones currently in use in El Paso. They are capable of reaching speeds up to 32 miles per hour and have the capability to unload the client’s weight. All clients wear a harness for safety, support, and unweighting. With the unloading capability, we first assess a client’s gait, correcting any deficits. Once the gait is corrected, we move on to over-speed training. This trains the neuromuscular system to react faster (accelerate), translating to increased speed. Clients will be able to maintain upright running mechanics while on the treadmill, unlike downhill or parachute running, which allows the mechanics to transfer to the ground or playing surface better. Once sprint mechanics are improved, the clients will work on multi-directional training to increase speed in all four directions.
All of our head coaches are Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists with the National Strength and Conditioning Association, holding sport science degrees, such as athletic training, exercise physiology, exercise and sport science, human movement science, or kinesiology. We work as a team to ensure every aspect of a client’s program is of the highest quality.
