Soccer is an aerobic based sport, with frequent high intensity anaerobic bouts of speed and power. It requires total body strength and coordination training, as well as flexibility, balance and agility. The most important aspect of soccer fitness training, however, is that it involves using soccer-specific movement patterns, both with and without the ball. Soccer Fitness Inc. prides itself on being leaders and innovators in developing training programs that stress physical ability combined with technical ball skills, as this is the most effective way to ensure that players will improve their actual physical performance in games.
