X Cross training refers to training in different ways to improve overall performance. It takes advantage of the particular effectiveness of each training method. At the same time it also avoids the shortcomings of each method (separately) by combining it with other methods that address any weaknesses.

Cross training in sports and fitness also refers to the combining of exercises to work various parts of the body. Often one particular activity or sport tones and exercises certain parts of the body, but not others. Cross training aims to eliminate this.

P Power is not just about strength; it's also about learning to become more efficient and coordinated with movements. Power adds quickness to strength, and speed to endurance. Power is the synthesis of all these attributes.

A Agility is often coupled with the words "power," "speed," and "quickness"; but the best definition for agility is "quickness under control." By moving quickly and efficiently, you emphasize timing and coordination in a workout. Good agility is shown with extreme accuracy and power when throwing, swinging, or punching. It is also quick acceleration, deceleration, or direction change when running, jumping, or cutting.

Testing for power, speed, and agility allows us to track your baseline and continuously monitor for efficiency.

C Core represents the central part of the body, the torso and hips. The core is the powerhouse of the body. Even though the abdominal muscles are important, the abdominals should never be totally isolated in training because they are never totally isolated in functional movement. Abdominal muscles work in coordination with hip and back muscles during activity. Yoga and Pilates movements are two excellent examples of core training. Athletes who demonstrate superior power/weight ratios  with weight lifting can have difficulty with some of the basic yoga and Pilates movements. This is often attributed to a lack of flexibility, but core stability is also an important factor. Even though many athletes are strong, the strength they possess is more in the extremities, rather than the core.

For example, martial artists put power behind the punch by transferring the energy generated by the leg through the trunk and into the shoulder turn. This provides the energy from powerful movements of the shoulder, arm, and fist. This translates to other sport movements as well. Nearly every movement in sport requires a transfer of energy--from arm to arm, from arm to leg, from leg to arm, or from leg to leg. The core is the common denominator for all these transfers.
