A Gym Workout for Soccer Players – Working Out Off the Field to Score Goals on it

Complement your Lifestyle…

Soccer, or football (for anyone reading this outside of North America), requires a rare type of athlete with a dynamic combination of explosive athleticism and excellent aerobic fitness. In order to compete on a soccer field, you need to be able to jog for long durations and explode into a sprint at a moment’s notice. You also need the strength and stability to leverage your body against your opponents, the agility to dodge defenders laterally while dribbling a ball and the velocity to kick the ball with power and accuracy, as well as with finesse. The best way to develop these skills and handle the physical demands of a complete soccer game is to train both on and off the field.

Fun Facts You May Not Know about LA Fitness

30-Year-Anniversary

  1. LA Fitness just turned 30!

When the first LA Fitness first opened its doors, things were quite different. Cardio machines were basic, displays were simple, and there were no machine-mounted TV screens. Women donned leotards, tights and leg warmers as their preferred workout apparel, men often wore thigh-exposing spandex, short shorts, tank shirts or singlets, and pretty much everybody sported sweatbands on both their head and wrists. The year was 1984, and since then the trends, science, equipment and, yes, even the fashion of fitness have changed.

LA Fitness, too, has evolved drastically in ways we couldn’t even imagine back then…
