Frequently Asked Questions


Do I still need lessons from a coach when I work with Epic?

Although, we encourage collaborative efforts with sport-specific coaches, individual lessons are not necessary. Epic provides all the evaluations, sport-specific training, strength, power, speed, and athleticism work you will need. Included are individualized in-season preparatory work as well as recovery routines. We use a far more advanced approach than traditional coaching.

Does Epic replace my strength & conditioning specialist?

Epic offers strength and conditioning programs specific to the athlete’s needs and sport of interest. Additional training from a strength and conditioning specialist is not required.

Are Epic Performance Specialists coaches?

Our Ph.D. level experts and Performance Specialists utilize the principles of biomechanics and scientific hypothesis testing while working with athletes. The objective scientific data guides all decisions. It’s a much more informed decision making process than traditional coaching.

What is biomechanics?

Biomechanics is the study of human movement. We use unique assessments to determine how an athlete moves within their sport, and why they do so based on their unique attributes. The information is used to build at-home, coach-driven, on-line, or in our facility programs that streamline the development process and reduces the athlete’s risk of injury.

I'm not into the "analytics" or "numbers," is Epic right for me?

Absolutely! Our employees fully recognize that not everyone is a numbers person. We work with athletes and coaches of all ages and levels to provide the insights they desire. We pride ourselves in recognizing the overly analytical athlete and work tirelessly to ensure that we don’t needlessly fill their minds with too much information. So regardless of your “numbers” preference, Epic is the right spot for serious athletes.

Who does Epic work with?

We work with serious athletes at all levels of their sport. Dedication is paramount to success and the athletes we work with need to schedule a routine they can stick to off-season and in-season. We also work with scouts, coaches, and player personnel directors who are interested in advancing their program. Our consultations and programs can be conducted at your place or ours, and we have virtual options available as well.

Should Epic replace or supplement my personal training?

Our programs can replace or supplement your individualized training efforts, that’s entirely up to you. Our offerings include everything from strength & conditioning programs to speed and agility work, as well as the all the sport-specific training you’ll need for long-term athletic development.
