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 9-13) Speed & Agility Program:

We have had a very successful program thus far in 2020 helping our great group of young athletes make significant gains in everything from their sprint speed, agility, core strength and overall conditioning.  We are excited to kick off the summer program on June 15th.  Our Summer Program will offer several time slots each week that athletes can choose from.  We run a unique program that allows for flexible scheduling via Weekday AM, PM and ever some virtual training for those who can’t attend in-person training.  BAT also offers sessions on Saturdays as well! 

There are a few notable differences between our summer program and most of the other training programs out there.  First off, we guarantee a low coach to athlete ratio of 1:6.  We also, utilize several training methods at our sessions to help athletes achieve new heights.  These methods include  advanced run mechanics exercises, the use of several types of resistance bands, as well as agility ladder, hurdles, sand pit training and hill sprints!

The goals of the program include:

  1. Our number 1 priority if for athletes to learn the proper way to exercise and build a strong work ethic. 
  2. Improvements in linear speed and agility – Reduction of .2 – .4 seconds on 40 yard dash, 5-10-5 shuttle and the 60 shuttle.
  3. Help athletes reach their peaks in overall conditioning, so they can have a great season in the fall!

High School S&C Program

Our Spring HS Program focused primarily on linear speed and muscular endurance training.  Our Summer Sessions will emphasize everything from agility and conditioning to strength and explosiveness.  There will be a strong emphasis on change of direction drills and next level conditioning exercises to ensure our athletes are in prime shape come fall.  Many of our athlete are football players, but we cater many of these summer sessions to those of all sports and have had soccer, basketball and lacrosse players training with us in the past!

What makes BAT’s S&C Program so effective:

  1. Body Mechanics – We take a lot at everything from muscular imbalances, muscular deficiencies and overall strength and conditioning levels.  
  2. 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 take a close look at our athletes speed and agility by using various shuttle tests and the 40 dash. 
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!   

2019 Recap:

The 2019 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.
