Why HGA?

Athletes...The "Tale Of The Tape!"

Today's competitive sports environment is as much about science as it is about wins and losses. Athletic Combines and Assessment Camps give keen insight into an athlete's capabilities and potential.  Sacks, interceptions, points per game, digs, kills, goals and other stats don't come into play here.  It's about non-tactical skills such as speed, agility, strength and power.  Skills that are developed away from the court or field, yet play significant roles in the success of athletes and sports teams.


Stats and on-the-field performance are only half the picture.  And this trend is going to  evolve and grow.  Off-season pick-up games and leagues address the finite skills of the game...not the foundational strength, conditioning, speed and agility training that separate first and second place.

Non-Athletes...Seize Today To Make Tomorrow Brighter!

The following is not news to most people: there is an overwhelming demographic of unhealthy people living in the United States today.  In addition to adult and child obesity, other ailments include diabetes, hypertension, heart attack, stroke, cancers, depression, lack of self-worth, stress, substance abuse and many more.


For many, the demands of every day are too much to take on, let alone have the energy for a training program. The simple fact is that this is a vicious cycle that will continue unless you stop it...or it stops you, permanently.  A frightful prospect that many just put out of their minds until it's too late.

HGA is here to help develop a fitness regimen that fits your needs and goals.  Together, we will assess your current status, carefully plan out a program, commit ourselves to work hard (and smart) everyday, monitor progress, and make any adjustments as necessary until we meet your objectives.
