Kenny Patton uses his vast knowledge of SAQ training, strength and conditioning principles, and sport specific training to build programs to maximize effectiveness for each client/program/team. He uses ongoing physical assessments to demonstrate time and time again the effectiveness of POWER HOUR training. Kenny uses a variety of training models to develop athletes of all ages (fundamental SAQ training principles, high intensity interval training, crossfit concepts, traditional strength training, track and field sprint techniques, muscle confusion, contrast training, “old school” training methods, and much more) to create unique training experiences.
Training Keiki (Ages 8 and Under) and Youth (Ages 9-12):
Coach Kenny believes that fitness and sports performance training are one and the same for youth under 13 years old. During those critical years in youth development, they must learn functional movements that will make future movements necessary in sport and life easier. This training stresses functional movements and fundamentals needed in sports while also minimizing the risk of injury in later years.
Training High School Athletes:
After the age of 13, Kenny uses competition and fun to develop his athletes, but believes that this should be done in more of a sport specific domain. While using multilateral training, these athletes must start to train to the needs of the sport of their choosing. While the goal will always be to become an overall better athlete, it is also important to increase sport specific training to enhance results on the playing field or court during the teen years.
Collegiate and Beyond:
Once athletes reach college, or professional levels, training changes drastically as typical training programs no longer yield the results athletes need to stay ahead of the rest. Kenny works with many companies and organizations to help achieve a fitter and faster Hawaii. Kenny works with a wide variety of ages, skill sets, teams, and individuals from all sports including, football, volleyball, tennis, golf, karate, basketball, baseball, bowling, judo, MMA, to help them reach their full athletic potential.
