Speed and Strength Training


Speed, power, agility, explosiveness, and endurance; these are the benchmarks that divide good athletes from elite competitors. Regardless of how naturally gifted an athlete might be, the thing that will ultimately bring their game to the next level is the work they put in off the field.

That’s why the team at EFX Fitness has designed a strength and conditioning program specifically aimed at athletes who are trying to maximize their on-field potential. We’ve built our athlete training regiment with input from some of the great minds in New England strength and conditioning including a former strength coach for the Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, and the U.S. Women’s Olympic hockey team. We offer training for all levels of athletes, from youth players to professionals.

Whether you’re trying to make your little league all-star team, your high school’s varsity team, get noticed by a D-1 college or even play in the big leagues, your preparation needs to start in the weight room. Our proven training program will help you perform at the top of your game when the season starts.

    What does the training program consist of?

    Our program incorporates a little of everything that is valuable for athletes. We take weight lifting, quickness and agility drills, plyometric and cardiovascular exercises and incorporate them into efficient 45 minute daily workouts. On any given day an athlete might be squatting heavy, flipping a tire, running a speed ladder, swinging a kettlebell, or performing one of various functional movements that will help them get faster, stronger, and in peak condition. We prioritize the safety of our athletes above all else, thus we take time to teach proper form and mechanics to ensure the absolute lowest risk of injury during one of our training sessions.

    What training environments do we offer?

    • Personal training

      – we will work with an athlete one-on-one, and take them through comprehensive workouts designed for the specific physical skills demanded by their sport.

    • Team Training

      – We can get the whole team together at our facility and put them through an intense group workout. We love working with teams, because friendly competition between players tends to bring up the intensity level and maximize the effectiveness of the training.

    • Semi-Private

      – Our small group environment offers the best of both worlds. Rather than a full team, we restrict these workout groups to a four person maximum. This allows us to offer a lot of one-on-one coaching to each athlete, and at the same time gives them a peer who will help motivate and push them through the workout.
