“My siblings and I started at Power Source when we heard that one of their focuses was injury prevention. I started by training to return from an ACL tear, and have been there ever since.
Over the past 6 years I have seen improvements on and off the field. I learned to love lifting and training to be a better athlete, and was able to continue growing in the sports I was playing which wouldn’t have been possible without their coaches.
Before I started training at Power Source , I focused solely on the sports I was playing and would train my body the way my coaches told me. However, I learned that there’s more work to be done off the field that improves all aspects of being an athlete. I learned how to strength train the right way in order to keep the rest of my body safe, including working flexibility and balance which go a long way to being a quality athlete.
Last fall I tore my other ACL in rugby and did most of my rehab while I was still away at school, but when I came home I was right back at Power Source! The coaches gave me workouts to keep me moving even though I couldn’t do everything. When I got fully cleared, I spent my summer training hard at the gym with programs and workouts that allowed me to return to rugby stronger than I was before.
That’s the thing about PowerSource, the coaches take care of the athletes and only want to see them strive on the field and off it. There’s no better atmosphere to train at than Power Source. It’s because of them that I have the relationship with the gym that I do, and is the reason I’m studying Exercise and Sports Physiology at Plymouth State.” - Maddie S
