Freak Faktory Barbell & Sports Performance Programs

Freak Faktory Barbell & Sports Performance has clearly identified itself as the authority, leader and pioneer of Sports Performance based programs in the greater Jenison/Grandville and Hudsonville area since opening in 2016. Hunter Charneski and Freak Faktory have been helping youth athletes improve their performance and on and off the field with their unique and comprehensive program. All programs begin with an assessment of movement quality and performance indicators. The athletes will then receive specific training to address the weakness exposed during the assessment. Areas that will be addressed include: movement training, injury reduction and prevention, speed training, lateral and reactive agility, strength, power, foot speed, and energy system development (ESD). All Athletes will be supervised by Freak Faktory certified coaches who will put them through a productive 1 hour to 1 hour 15 minute workout with the focus being on safe and sound execution of all tasks.

Freak Faktory has programs to address athletes of all ages and skill sets. Your age and the results of you assessment will dictate your placement. Below is a list of our programs.

This program will give you just that.  Strong(Her) will combine cardiovascular fitness with weight training to increase your lean muscle mass. That's a good thing (NO YOU WILL NOT BULK)!

SPEED TRAINING: Linear and Lateral running mechanics, Acceleration, Deceleration, Absolute Speed Foot quickness

POWER TRAINING: Medicine ball throws and tosses, jump training /proper jumping and landing technique, Plyometrics

STRENGTH: All athletes will learn the 6 Primal Movement Patterns: Squat, Lunge/Step, Push, Pull, Bend/Hinge, Twist/Ant-Rotation. All movement patterns are progressed and regressed according to the athlete’s skill set.

CORE TRAINING: We use many methods to address the core. We consider the core the entire area from torso to the hips. We will rarely perform crunches and we will teach you how to develop a bulletproof core by way of proper breathing, bracing, and anti flexion/ rotation based movements. Our core training programs are scientifically proven and do much more than just make your abs sore.

FLEXIBILITY/MOBILITY/STABILITY: The assessment and evaluation we use will identify what needs you have in regards to flexibility, stability and mobility. Just doing some stretching and a dynamic warm up won’t get it done. We have specific corrective strategies in place to address the movement dysfunction associated with these problems.
