We also had the privilege to work with area high schools and travel organizations to help assists their programs and athletes. 


Along the way, we were fortunate enough to work with adults who wanted to take their training goals to the next level.

Our core belief is that Everyone has an Inner Athlete. Through movement-based training, this athlete can be brought out in anyone.

Whether your goals are increasing strength and speed, preventing or rehabilitating injury, or losing weight, LAB Sports Performance will help you reach your training or fitness goals.

High Performance Weight Room


Old Wooden Dolly found where the "LAB" name  originated from

When we designed the facility we wanted to have the ability to have a fully equipped weight room connected to the indoor facility.  

Inside we have a full weight room with 25 yards of turf, 5 power racks, 10 working stations (within the 40 foot rig), dumbbells, kettlebells, medicine balls and sleds. 

With having 5 indoor turf field (54x125) located next door gives us the ability to access the fields for speed & agility training, conditioning and throwing (baseball) all in one spot.  

This allows us an easy way to incorporate speed and strength training into any team practice.

Inside you will find 5 indoor turf fields (54 x 125) that are lined for indoor soccer and indoor lacrosse.  Each field is separated with professional grade portable dasher boards as well as a 8 foot protective net that surrounds each field.  

On 2 fields, we have portable batting cages, hitters nets/tees and pitching mounds that provide space for both baseball and softball practice and skill development.
