About Potential Plus

Our Training Philosophy

Form and technique are of the utmost importance. Once form has been mastered, we progressively increase weight and/or intensity of the exercise.

The P.L.U.S. for Girls

The Problem

  • Females are 4-6x’s more likely to sustain an ACL injury than males
  • Females inherently posses more hormonal, anatomical, biomechanical & genetic risk factors than men
  • In the past 30 years, female ACL injury occurrence has seen a tenfold increase
  • 70% of all ACL injuries are non-contact
