The new SSL location will be equipped with a lab Certified Strength & Conditioning Coach and a lab Certified Biomechanics Specialist. The New York Sports Science Lab will provide expertise at the Zone Sports Academy location in two areas, speed & agility and brain training.
Paul Searles, the lab’s Certified Strength & Conditioning Coach, will be lead on individual and group training, while also focusing on each athlete individually within the group, providing them a tailor-made training routine.
