PURE PERFORMANCE is Pura Vida Elite's Performance Training Department, led by Dr. Hilary Obert DPT, Dr. Andy Masis and Coach Nico Mendivil.
We believe Performance Training is crucial for the development of an elite soccer player, not only to keep the athlete healthy and on the pitch but to optimize performance. “Research demonstrates that participation in elite youth sport alone, without the addition of supplementary physical training, fails to optimize athletic development.” Pura Vida shares a level of expertise in Performance which mirrors current professional soccer clubs around the world.
Pura Vida places a major emphasis on Movement Mechanics, Speed, Strength, Explosiveness and Injury Prevention. Our soccer-specific Performance training is sensitive to player age, skill-level and position. Performance is foundational to our technical skills training. Pura Vida’s Performance and Technical coaches collaborate to study players’ on-field actions and movement mechanics to improve movement efficiency, skills acquisition, and injury risk mitigation. We VAMOS!
