Crucible Performance is a Sports Performance Training Facility in Maryland. They were one of the very first performance space customers for Perch and have implemented VBT and sports technology with their athletes young and old.
GETTING STARTED WITH VELOCITY BASED TRAINING
In an effort to enhance offerings and set their facility apart, Crucible Performance opted to add critical technology like Perch and WHOOP to their facility a few years ago. The immediate results they saw were incredible.
“We had an athlete who added 30 lbs to his squat in three weeks, and was moving it the same velocity. Objective data gave him the motivation to do that. Intent is so important!”
For all of their clients, Crucible is big on community: "We always want to meet our athletes exactly where they are at when they walk through our doors. Physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Our belief is that if we can utilize technology to help us connect with our members, improve their performance, keep them healthy, and give them all the feedback to be at their best selves, then we are in!"
Read more below about how Crucible Performance began implementing VBT in their facility, and their tips and tricks for making it an easy transition!
IMPLEMENTING VBT AT CRUCIBLE PERFORMANCE
Data is the gold standard. It’s the feedback Crucible coaches and clients are chasing each and every day. But data needs to be consistently collected to make it worthwhile. With Perch sitting on top of their weight rack, passively and consistently collecting data, Crucible never has to worry about missing important information.
- No More Guessing! With real time analytics, we can meet people exactly where they are at based on session goals.
- Optimize for Each Athlete! It’s not always about how much weight you can lift but how you lift it. If you want to be fast, you must move fast!
- Save Time. The instant feedback helps adjust loads to keep the session moving and the client progressing
OUR TIPS & TRICKS
Train fast, move fast, and enhance intent! With instant feedback on every rep, we can see in live time if an athlete is on track for their goals. We can also enhance the competitve atmosphere with Perch's leaderboard, no matter who is training at what times. Clients can compete against themselves and everyone else with Perch data.
Autoregulate, prescribed loads are guidelines. Daily fluctuations are real, be flexible, listen to the data, and keep clients healthy.
Diversify offerings. Not everyone needs to lift a house, train smart, train to the client, and give them goals to hit besides loads or percentages.
