Indiana University Health Sports Performance provides training for professional athletes with a medically integrated approach, beginning with our degreed and nationally certified sports performance Coaches, a complete rehabilitation staff of physical therapists and athletic trainers, and access to nutritional specialists and sports psychologists. Our state of the art facility has nearly 25,000 square feet of space for simulated sports training on a turf surface, speed work on our 70 yard track, and instruction by our specialist in Olympic lifts. Access to every aspect of sports performance in one location gives our athletes the edge on the competition.

Programs focus on building strength, power, quickness, endurance, and, most importantly for a professional athlete, explosive speed specific to each sport and position. When sports agents send their burgeoning young future pro’s to us, their number one goal is to see their athletes increase their speed. We have developed a scientifically proven speed program that breaks down the specific parts of running a timed forty-yard dash, so that we can drive results more quickly than others. This is one of many reasons that future and current professional athletes know IU Health is the place that will help secure and maintain their futures.

As a healthcare leader we value and utilize the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) as a tool to further individualize the program for each athlete. It helps our Coaches to identify muscular imbalances and asymmetries so that focus can be placed on those areas that have deficits in mobility, flexibility, or stability. Addressing those deficits will decrease the likelihood for injury. We understand that as a professional athlete, you're challenged every day to perform at the highest level and against the best competition in the world. Training with our staff at IU Health Sports Performance will give you the competitive edge, both physically and mentally.
