Our S&C Training Explained:
THE BASICS of any Strength & Conditioning Program include building up the muscles, joints and heart in order to improve your ability to do the tasks that you ask your body to complete, whether in sports or in everyday life. There are thousands of S&C programs out there, so why should you train with Boston Athletic Training?
OUR PROGRAM is not a one size fits all model. We evaluate each athlete in various athletic skills such as jumping, running, lifting weights, overall balance and conditioning. We use the evaluation of these various athletic components to come up with the best plan of attack. As a result of this, we put our athletes on individualized programs to ensure they get the best results from training. The program is a collaborative one that balances strength training with speed & agility. This mix of training allows our athletes to get faster and more explosive year-round.
“An Individualized Approach to Each Athlete”
THE COACHES include two dedicated and experienced individuals – Chaim and Eli Andler. Both coaches have athletic backgrounds and have been trainers for the 8+ years. As co-coaches (and brothers), they work together to create a collaborative program that includes high level instruction in everything from speed mechanics to jumping technique and weight lifting. Chaim’s primary role is creating the Speed & Agility programming and leading many of the speed & agility sessions. Eli’s primary role is Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, where he creates the S&C regiments for both the youth and HS Programs.
Youth Group (Ages 8-10) Speed & Agility Programs:

Middle School and High School Drop-in Training:
While adjusting to this new normal, things are unpredictable with school, sports and your schedules! As such, we are continuing to offer drop-in training options throughout the fall for our MS and HS Groups. To participate in these sessions, you will simply purchase a package and then sign-up for sessions that you plan to attend.
Our sessions are high energy with lots of instruction and strict social distancing. Each session is held outdoors (primarily at Cabot Park in Newton). For our MS groups, we primarily focus on speed and agility with some plyometrics to help our athletes balance all of the speed focus with strength and balance.
For our HS group, we offer both speed and strength training. Our speed sessions focus on a mix of acceleration and change of direction drills, while our strength sessions are outdoors with a strong focus on free weights, kettle bells and heavy resistance bands.

What makes BAT’s S&C Program so effective:
- Body Mechanics – We take a lot at everything from muscular imbalances, muscular deficiencies and overall strength & conditioning levels.
- Best Testing – We utilize the premier tests in all facets to truly evaluate each component of fitness. This includes strength tests such as Squat and Bench along with broad/vertical jumps. We look closely at our athletes speed & agility with various shuttle and sprint markers.
- Film Study – We take videos of many of the exercises at each session. Athletes and coaches can then review the film to identify points of emphasis for future sessions.
- Collaborative Program – Our training methods are a combination of field workouts and strength sessions. The program goes through several “periods” that each have their own set goals with the ultimate goal being significant growth in everything related to speed, strength and pliability.
- Best Practices – Our goal is to always offer the best methods in our training program. This means that we use proven stretching modes, activation exercises, bands and much more. We use medicine balls, Speed belts for added resistance on plyometrics and sprints, Dumbbells when appropriate, weight vests, ankle weights and much more!
The 2019 HS training season was defined by hard work and gains! We had 14 H.S. athletes consistently training with our knowledgeable coaches. All of our athletes made gains in the weightroom, with some improving by 25-35% on major lifts such as the Squat, Deadlift, Overhead Press and Bench. Our athletes also made improvements with linear speed measured by the 40 dash and with their quickness – measured by various shuttles. Many of our athletes noted vastly improved hip strength and overall explosiveness, leading to several earning varsity spots at the HS level and playing time for our college bound athletes.
