Sports Performance Training Options

Adult Group Training

If you’re an adult 18 years or older looking for a group training atmosphere to keep you active and motivated, our Fit4Life program is for you! Fit4Life is based upon functional training and three-dimensional movements which will not only enhance athletic performance, but improve the quality of your day to life as well - now and into the future!

Youth Group Training

For athletes under 18, Fit2Play offers developmentally-appropriate group training designed to build confidence, improve agility, develop speed, increase flexibility and prevent injury. Fit2Play offers programming for middle schoolers and high schoolers, each tailored to focus on skills to serve them throughout their athletic career.

One-on-One Training

For athletes of all ages who seek the guidance of a sports performance expert in an individual setting, we offer 30 and 60 minute appointments with a member of our team. These sessions are built around your specific needs, goals and abilities. We’ll first consult with you to discuss your current abilities and ambitions, then develop a training program that is just right for you. Limited availability.

Sports Physical Therapy

When an athlete sustains an injury, complete recovery with strong support is critical to being able to return to competition. Excelsior understands that the needs of athletes are often different compared to other injuries or conditions. Our team can provide expedited care.

Seasonal Programs

We offer specific performance programs for special events, such as our Run2Excel Buffalo Marathon program, 11 Day Power Play, and summer performance camps for athletes looking to enter seasonal competition with an athletic advantage. Our team works with collegiate athletes on break. These Seasonal Programs help our community make the most of short seasons, time off, or special community events.

Enhance Your Training with On-Demand Services

In addition to our exceptional performance programs, Excelsior Sports Performance offers additional services that may benefit athletes and their journey to return to sport or improve their performance.

Athletic Profile List Arrow

The first step to any of our performance programs is the Athletic Profile. This profile includes a comprehensive musculoskeletal review, physical competency, and performance metrics. This assessment includes a number of advanced analysis tools depending on the athlete’s circumstances and goals.

InBody 570 Analysis List Arrow

Everyone has a unique body composition, and this impacts your training and performance. A non-invasive InBody 570 scan provides information about visceral fat, segmental fat, intracellular water, and extracellular water, which our expert team will use to develop a truly customized performance program that takes your individual physiology into account.

Sports Nutrition List Arrow

Food is your fuel! The right combination of nutrients and timing of intake can greatly improve energy levels, weight and body composition, mental focus, strength and power - leading to optimized performance and better results in competition. A nutrition consultation with our sports nutritionist can help you ensure you’re fueling your body the right way.
