Jesuit college

“Given the general competitiveness of our student athletes, the GymAware has created an opportunity for our student athletes to compete on each and every set. The engagement in the training process has greatly improved and the intent to which each rep is performed has improved tremendously.”

Jeremy Weeks is currently the Director of Athletic Performance at Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas, he is a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). Twice he has been awarded the “Strength of America Award” by the (NSCA). With a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Kinesiology and a Master of Science in Education (MSEd) in Sport Pedagogy he has worked with athletes from youth through professional level and currently is specialising in the training of 14 -18 year old student athletes.

Jesuit college

At Jesuit, GymAware is being used by the generation of student athletes who revolve around technology. The school provides each student with an iPad. GymAware allows the coaching staff to integrate the iPads into their training program. Once the students were educated on the proper set up of the PowerTool, the training sessions have been uninterrupted as far as flow is concerned.

Jeremy had worked with other LPT units in the past but the feedback from these devices he found was minimal and provided no opportunities to review the session once completed.

Traditionally, the Jesuit program centered around subjective information and feedback to progress the student athletes. Although utilising subjective information is very useful, when dealing with youth, it can be very inconsistent. Athletes strength numbers can vary greatly from session to session leading to an inaccurate training prescription. The big challenge for the coaches is getting the young student athlete to understand the training goal for a given day.
"This caused us to progress our athletes on a general scale due to the large number of student athletes in our program. This would benefit some while others may have not been prepared for a rise in intensity or restrict those that were prepared for an increase. Providing objective data in an instant was something we wanted to provide to our student athletes at Jesuit.“

At Jesuit, the coaches wanted to show the athletes that when they left the facility they had improved. GymAware gives the answers for the athletes and the coaches.

Currently Jeremy is using GymAware with multiple sports including Football, Basketball, and Lacrosse athletes. Their key aims with the system are:

  • 1) Provide feedback on their athletes to incorporate into the long term development program.
  • 2) Utilise a velocity based training program with the more experience athletes.
  • 3) Create a competitive training environment.
  • 4) Create an engaging training environment.
  • 5) Provide laboratory opportunities for the physics programs at Jesuit.
  • “We are extremely happy with our investment and feel we have not began to scratch the surface on the possibilities with the (GymAware) system. We are going to continue using GymAware to evolve to a more velocity based training system.”
