The COVID-19 outbreak affected each and every one of us in 2020 and while things are looking positive for 2021, the specter of the pandemic still looms large.
For athletes young and old, lives were turned upside down, seasons canceled and future plans thrown for a loop. For Sylvan Lake, Michigan’s Phyx Performance, this meant adapting and changing to accommodate.
Phyx Performance, which specializes in sports performance, trains many of the areas high school and aspiring college athletes. Things were growing great for the three-year-old training facility.
Then came COVID-19.
“Many of the young athletes preparing for their junior and seasons were slowed down,” said Reyes. “Upon finding ways to develop a Zoom platform and outdoor workouts, though, we were able to get our athletes back on track.”
Reyes and Phyx Performance have emerged from a trying year better than ever with a brand-new 6,200 sq. foot facility just 30 minutes northwest of Detroit.
“We look for simple and functional equipment,” said Reyes. “Our goal is to provide creative and progressive ways to utilize the equipment in unilateral or core challenging ways.”
Phyx Performance worked with the team at Strengthio Fitness to outfit their facility with multiple Body-Solid products.
“Don has been phenomenal as a liaison to finding equipment during this hectic time,” said Reyes.
As far as the Body-Solid equipment, the results speak for themselves:
“Our Body-Solid equipment has been a great addition to our facility,” said Reyes. “The ease and convertibility of these half racks has been great when utilizing the turf side or weight room.”
With 2020 in the rearview, Reyes and Phyx Performance are feeling optimistic about 2021 and beyond.
“Phyx Performance will continue to provide high-quality training to Oakland County,” said Reyes. “And hopes of broadening our service are not out of question.”
