My name is Glenn Venance, and I am a professional curler. I came to Acumen in the spring of 2022 looking for a more personalized and professional approach regarding my off-ice training. I wanted a program that took my sport context and long-term goals into account; things that I had never had in my past training programs.
OFF-SEASON & IN SEASON CURLING TRAINING
Off Season training allocates proper time to improve muscle imbalances that are created during a player’s curling season. We spend quality time focusing on mobility, flexibility, strength, speed, and conditioning. We target the whole body for muscle re-education to help reduce the risk of injury or overuse issues. This is how we prepare athletes for consistent on-ice competition.
In-Season training accommodates the athlete and team’s schedule and demands to offer proper recovery and strength adaptation. Studies show that when incorporating in-season training we can not only reduce the risk of injury but also enhance an individual's performance throughout a season. We want to focus on continuous growth and not just maintenance.
