Although PlyoCity specializes in offering team or group training, we also provide plyo training for individual athletes. PlyoCity trains athletes in 27 different sports. Each plyo class is designed to allow the individual athlete, while in a group workout environment, to reach his or her full athletic potential.
Our class sizes range from 5 to 60 athletes. These classes will usually have both male and female athletes from various sports and ages that range from 8 to 62. An athlete may start our plyo classes at any time during the year because the PlyoCity workout, which consists of 10 different levels, allows each athlete to work at their own pace.
Best of all, remember that your first PlyoCity workout is complimentary!
