FAQ - things people ask us about
strength and conditioning.

Which sports do your strength coaches work with?

All of them! Our strength coaches have a range of experiences through participation themselves as well as working with many high performing young athletes in the past. Volleyball, basketball, wrestling, you name it!

Whether or not our coaches have played or worked with athletes who play a specific sport, our knowledge base and network fully supports training young athletes in sports that are new to us. We can design effective programs that are both broad and specific to your sport, whatever meets your needs. 

On top of that, this 6 week program covers the fundamentals of strength training. Whether you’re a competitive swimmer or aspiring to be a pro snowboard, you’ll see some awesome improvements in your strength and confidence in movement. 

Is strength training safe?

Yes! A common misconception is that strength training is dangerous for youth athletes. We assure you, this is not the case, and unfortunately it’s held many kids back from reaching their highest potential. 

Strength training can be dangerous for youth (or anyone really) if:

  • they haven’t learned the proper and safe technique for an exercise
  • they load too heavy or progress too quickly
  • they use equipment incorrectly

In our strength and conditioning programs, a strength coach guides participants through a program designed to cover the fundamentals of strength training in a safe environment. With proper supervision and encouragement, you can increase your strength, endurance, sport-specific skills, and confidence!

Wow what an experience! I booked with Diana to address my recurring knee pains with weight training. She did a great job in the assessment and immediately recognized the possible mobility issues that are causing the discomfort. We went through a few exercises and some physical treatment that left me feeling better than ever! This was my first time, but Diana didn’t waste any time in making it a comfortable experience. Looking forward to booking again!

I came into see Diana for sacral nerve pain that I've been experiencing for quite some time over the last few weeks. Over the entirety of our session, my hip range of motion increased substantially and I was able to move pain free even before our session finished! She educated me extremely well and gave me great home exercises to work on until our next session. Thank you Diana and the team at Lift!

First visit at the new Lift Clinic location, which moved from Kingsway onto Knight street, around the corner. Space was clean, and I love the cushy flooring. RMT visit with Michael Fung was super as usual, and I'll be working on the stretch Mike showed me to try to ease my ropey back and shoulder muscles. Good covid safety protocol adherence. Felt safe and comfortable during my visit.

Daniel is absolutely fantastic. Not only does he get you up and moving again as quickly as possible, he knows when to push you and when to be more cautious in the amount of physical activity you should be doing. Highly recommended.

After needing shoulder surgery back in 2017, I was so afraid that I would be one of those volleyball athletes who struggles with shoulder pain their entire career. Thanks to Travis and his team at Lift Clinic, I trust that this isn’t the case. Travis helped me so much throughout my recovery, and has continued to do so over the years. He has so much knowledge of the human body and the importance of the neck when it comes to shoulder health. After releasing tension in my neck my shoulder felt stronger and without pain. I am so grateful for Travis and Lift Clinic for helping me keep my shoulder healthy over the years so that I can feel my best out on the court!

I have been going to LIFT for a number of injuries (including lisfran foot fracture, torn rotator cuff/shoulder pain and runner's wear-and-tear) over the last few years - they're comprehensive approach is second to none. They don't just treat the issue, they are committed to finding the root cause and fixing that. If I could rate 6 stars I would.
