Noonan Sport Specialists

Noonan Sport Specialists


Just wanted to extend my sincere appreciation for the expertise and professionalism demonstrated at Noonans. Exercise is one thing, coached strength training is quite another matter. Through consistent metered advancement, mountains have become mole hills. This morning I was able to bang out 4 sets of 10 push-ups, that's 40 push-ups plus a PB in bar-squats and bench-press earlier in the week. Probably the biggest delight is the pain-free environment good coaching creates. Noonans is just the thing I needed. Keep up the good work, I am coming back for more!
We are downhill skiing today at Giants Ridge
Awesome work on the Relay for Life fundraiser total! Very impressive!

We know a ๐˜”๐˜ˆ๐˜‘๐˜–๐˜™ part of getting back to in house training is going to be having hand sanitizer readily available for all our clients.

Hand sanitizer that is going to kill coronavirus and all the other nasties that we don't want to be spreading.

We are happy to say that we will be "loaded for bear", and the new look of NSS will come with 10 of these bad boys strategically placed around the gym.

We won't be giving high fives, but if we were, boy our hands would be clean!

A few weeks ago we made the decision as a staff to wear masks while we are working on the facility preparation. We also plan to continue to do this when we begin working with the #NSSfamily again.

However, a few weeks ago we didn't all have masks.


We have a master seamstress on staff, who was able to take recycled elastic, some fabric, and a few hours of time to take care of that problem for us!

Thank you Katelynn!

Strength training considerations for an athlete with no equipment (aka bodyweight training).

We can still get stronger as an athlete even without weights, we just have to change our approach a little bit.

Upper body can be fairly easy - push-ups and push-up variants work well for upper body strength training. But what about lower body?

We have to think about what an athlete must do - body control, balance, and explosiveness. Thatโ€™s how we can train the lower body.

You know what truly makes the #NSSfamily special?

During these crazy times - where so much is so different for us all - they are able to stay focused on their health, fitness and wellness.

Is it ideal? Of course not.

Is it doable? Sure is!

Even without the full range of equipment we use at NSS clients are finding ways to best โ€œuse what they have, to do what they can.โ€

Ever think you could get a rocking full body workout with a simple kettlebell and 2 paper plates?!?

Try and tell Sherri you canโ€™t, she might have a different opinion!

The NSS Team coaches had a great, socially distant, 2 hour action planning meeting today!

Itโ€™s the first time in 6 weeks we have all been in the gym together. Just that alone felt awesome.

Our goal today was to finalize the task teams to start taking action on our plan for disinfection, social distance coaching, facility flow, schedule, and gym projects.

The next two weeks we will be working hard to ensure all these things are in full working order. So when we get the green light everything is ready for YOU to trust in coming to see us ๐Ÿ˜!

What's the Deal with Warm-ups?

As an athlete, one of the easiest workouts to do on your own is a sprint workout. It is also one that can cause some lower body injuries without first getting the body ready for it (aka warming up).

You've got to get the body ready for what it's about to do. You don't go out on a January morning and red-line your vehicle right after you start it, so don't do that to your body.

At-home athlete sprint workout! Minimal equipment (shoes and a couple markers) and minimal time, but it will pay off!

Jump Training is an easy way to make an athlete more powerful. A more powerful athlete is a better athlete, because that athlete can produce force FAST.

Incorporate some jumps into your training to see a big jump in performance down the road.

Some examples might be:
-vertical jumps
-broad jumps
-sideways jumps
-leave with one leg but land with two legs

With any jump the key is EFFORT and technique (stick the landing), and if power is the goal, stick to 4-6 jumps at a time.

Client of the Month: Tamara Weets

April Client of the Month - Tamara W.

During these wild and uncertain times Tamara has not only maintained her fitness routine, she has given it an upgrade!

Here are the bones of it.

Moving from three workouts a week to five or six - a monumental achievement in its own right. Though she didn't stop there!

Tamara is addressing some of her imbalances and harder exercises with specific skills work. The things that are not โ€œas funโ€ to work one when the sledgehammer and tire is "RIGHT OVER THERE" in the gym!

Another impressive aspect of her at-home workouts is that even though life and work are changing at a lightning fast pace. She is adapting and continuing to move forward!

Whether it is adapting to teaching online classes, not being able to use the gym(s) or attending her normal social events to de-stress. Tamara has navigated these obstacles with as much grace as anyone we have seen during such a trying time.

The absolute best part?

Tamara has approached this situation with gusto. Embracing the process of at home workouts with her own flare of personality, skits, and air guitar! Lots and lots of air guitar!

Even quarantine and social distancing cannot stop the greatness that is Tamara from spreading to everyone she interacts with!

Note: All Exerci...

Today we wanted to give you an update on exactly what Chris has been doing to prepare for the 2020 Summer Athlete Program.

In these uncertain times, Chris has been preparing as normal (while also keeping in mind how this program might need to be administered a bit differently).

Building up the lifting portion of our program, by considering what has worked well with athletes in the past, along with the most recent research and education he has been able to consumer.

To accompany this appropriate weight room portion, Chris is building up our fieldwork and movement aspect of the program.

"It's not only about strength."

Making sure that some of the tried and true drills, the staples, have their place. But also ensuring the most applicable and appropriate sprinting, change of direction and athletic movement components are built in.

But ALL OF THIS isn't going to be as effective as possible if Chris can't get the athletes to "buy in".

One huge portion of this "buy in" is getting athletes having fun while training.

Which is why Chris, for the last 3 months, has been studying and implementing the Powerful Play online course through SPIDERfit Kids.

It is packed with information, research, activities, and games that are continuing to equip Chris to positively impact your athlete with a fun AND effective youth fitness program.

This continuous research, paired with Chris' personal athletic and coaching experience, and his Youth Fitness Specialists Certification, are indicators that (no matter how our Summer Program will be administered) it's going to be the best ever!

2020 Summer Athlete Program UPDATE

In a perfect world our Summer Athlete Program starts up on June 8th, and runs 11 weeks, as originally planned.

However, we understand that ๐—” ๐—Ÿ๐—ข๐—ง of things are up in the air at this moment in regard to our ability to work with the athletes safely, in house, by that time.

In the case that we cannot run the Summer Athlete Program as normal we are already planning out what the best possible program for the athletes can be. (socially distant, outdoors, virtual, etc)

We are confident we will still make a ๐—š๐—ฅ๐—˜๐—”๐—ง program work, it just may not be the typical way we have ran it for the past 13 years. However, we don't want this to be another thing taken away from our athletes, as so much has been lately.

Rest assured, if the regularly scheduled Summer Athlete Program doesn't go off as normal, you will be the first to know.

From there you will have the option to learn more about what we will be doing for the athletes, what the investment for that is, and be able to make a choice if that is not right for you.

In the case it will not fit for you we will certainly offer a no questions asked, money back promise.

No question, the magic pill approach - promising fast and amazing results is sexy. And honestly, appealing in lots of ways.

However, if it sounds too good to be true. Trust your gut, it is.

However, the good old fashioned way - little and often over the long haul, small and steady habits, high accountability leading to long term consistency is still the tried and true method!

โ€œThereโ€™s something about moving your body that makes the mind better.โ€
