  • What is OrthoVirginia's Sports Performance and Wellness?
  • How Does the Program Work?
    • Clients can schedule a free 30-minute consultation with one of our coaches. Based on the results of the initial assessment, a customized program is developed to help the client reach their goals. Each session will be one-on-one with one of our strength coaches, lasting an hour long. The coach will instruct the client through a workout routine that is uniquely suited for their particular fitness goals, while conducting assessments intermittently throughout their program.
  • What Do Training Sessions Include?
    • Your program is designed to address your specific fitness needs. Our strength coaches will work with you individually to educate and instruct you throughout your program. Our coaches specialize in integrating a variety of quality sport-specific movements/skills training, cardiovascular conditioning, and general strength training exercises to accomplish your unique goals.
