Soccer is a game of constant movement. Throughout the game, every player is constantly moving into position to recieve a pass or defend the opponent. A soccer play must have a high level of muscle endurance and strength to stay highly active throughout the game. At NX Level we provide our soccer athletes a strength and conditioning program that will build strength and endurance through a variety of different platforms.
At NX Level we work to develop sport-specific power to help each individual athlete reach his or her performance goals. Power development is accomplished through speed and strength training.
