Welcome to Terre Haute Intensity Resistance and Sports Training (THIRST).
We are a locally owned and operated fitness and performance facility located in Terre Haute, Indiana. We strive to provide world class coaching and fitness services to the greater Wabash Valley community, using scientific and practical applications to help people of all levels and desires to reach their fullest potential, whether that be on the field/court, or just in life.
Sports Performance Training
Our sports performance training is a unique program tailored towards improving the youth athlete on and off the field/court. We’re the only facility in Terre Haute, Indiana that has 25 yards of turf, certified strength and conditioning coaches, world-class equipment, and experience working with athletics for over a decade. We work with youth athletes and children from ages 6-18.
Our sports performance program provides your child with a free movement assessment to identify your child’s strengths, weakness, and current level of fitness and health to help tailor a training program specifically for them (meaning your child won’t be doing the same workout as others). Once the program is created, your child will be coached through each workout session by a professional to ensure proper technique, execution, and that progress is being made. But most of all, we are going to ensure that your child is having fun, especially if they are under the age of 12.
Our sports performance program is all encompassing, in that we help provide a proper warm-up, cool-down, mobility and flexibility, strength and conditioning, as well as recovery protocols that are at the top of the field and industry. Your child’s session is not locked into a specific time slot to train or be coached, but rather so long as they come in during our business hours our coaching staff will help them through their entire program. This allows you as a parent/guardian to be flexible with what works best for your schedules, and not penalizing you for missed sessions.
Each of our sports performance training clients/athletes get a free T-Shirt, free gym membership and access to classes for free as well*. We want to encourage you to come into the gym more than just your training sessions, and at no charge to you.
*Membership and classes are only available for youth athletes 16 years or older. Any youth athlete/child under 16 must be coached and supervised by a THIRST employee/coach at all times.*
Why Strength Training For Children/Youth Athletes?
In today’s athletics, kids are doing more and becoming more competitive. As such, the ability to play varsity high school sports, make it on a college team, or even possibly think about professional sports is even harder. Strength and conditioning programs for youth athletics helps teach kids proper movement patterns, strengthen the bones and muscles, and provide kids with an ability to prevent injury.
If you’re curious if strength training is for your child, did you know that when you kid runs and jumps, they apply more ground reaction forces through their body that are more than 3-5x their bodyweight?! That would be equivalent to your 50 pound child lifting 150-250 pounds (not going to happen, right?). So in all reality, your child is already doing something harder on their body than strength training – which is the primary reason that professionals are highly encouraging kids to get into strength training at an early age. When your kid is in the weight-room with a professional (like here at THIRST), we can provide proper coaching and movement that will help aid your child’s health and structure in a controlled atmosphere.
Strength training is also great for building camaraderie, social networks, and teaching hard work and consistency. It takes time to get stronger, faster, and more conditioned, but your kid can also see and feel the difference themselves. There are not many activities where the results are so tangible after 4-6 weeks.
Strength training WILL NOT hinder your child’s growth, make them “bulky”, or cause any adverse issues to their health. If anything, strength training will teach your child the value of health and fitness for their rest of their life and help set the foundation for a great young adult in the future.
Our pricing for our sports performance training will be based upon your commitment length and frequency. We do offer team pricing if 5 or more athletes sign up to train together. Contact us for more info!
