Hyperthrive Athletics

Quarantine and Grind 

Hyperthrive Athletics are powered to always stay one step ahead. Training is important during this crucial time of spring sports for athletes. 

Whether you’re a pro guy looking to make a big league roster, college player looking to crack the starting line up, or even a high school athlete working towards a scholarship, these times can make or break an athlete’s progress.

Hyperthrive brilliantly adapts to the “Stay at Home” lockdown put in place by bringing instruction and training to its trainees and anyone willing to get an at home workout or lesson in.

For those of you unaware of “Zoom”, it’s a facetime within a conference call. You’re able to communicate with the trainers about nutrition, success habits, mindset, and of course, working out. 

Hyperthrive has begun a podcast, “Strength Roots”, where they bring special guests to discuss elite habits performed by elite people on top of adapting to recent situations. It’s geared towards anyone looking for that spark of motivation, that piece of insight they needed, or even how to learn to separate themself from the pack. 

Hyperthrive is an environment of being the best you. Your mentality, diet, and strength are all key components that take you to the next level of your improvement. Joseph Grinstain, Co-owner and Director, is as gifted as they come in the development of the next generation of athletes.

What atmosphere does Hyperthrive bring? What people do you want in your facility?

“The atmosphere in Hyperthrive Athletics is that of community and family. Our atmosphere forces our clients to build relationships with their coaches as well as their peers. These relationships encourage growth and consistency. The fact that our coaches and owners are brothers only helps to foster the sense of closeness in our community.”

This facility is the place for anyone looking to get better for next season. The environment creates friendly competitions between clients which only can bring the best out in people.

What separates Hyperthrive from other training facilities?

“What separates us from the majority of our facilities is our commitment to provide the highest quality coaching. We invest considerable time and money into our continuing education in an effort to provide our athletes with unparalleled quality of coaching.”

Athletes can expect to be helped in all sorts of areas of improvement when walking in the facility. Instruction on how to lift with a side of diets and a healthy mindset is a plate worth eating if you’re looking to become better. Hyperthrive has the right tools to make the dish.

What’s your favorite part about a trainee’s improvement?

“My favorite part of our athletes change is their shift in mentality. The most fulfilling part of my career is seeing a confidence change in our youth athletes. Strength training can have such a massively positive impact on teens not only physically but mentally. That is my favorite change, one that is not only physical but mental.”

Improvements in the body is what athletes usually want to see in themselves, but sometimes they don’t realize the mental side of improvements that comes with it are just as beneficial.

What’s the future goal for the facility?

“The long term goal for Hyperthrive is to be the go to training facility for professional baseball players on the west coast.”

Matt Manning of the Detroit Tigers organization, pride of Sheldon High, is just one of the many athletes from our area that’s inches away from a big league call up in MLB that also happens to be one of the faces for this facility. Jimmy Herget of the Texas Rangers and Braden Bishop of the Seattle Mariners are other names to add to that list.

What’s the hardest part of staying dedicated to your workouts?

“The hardest part of staying consistent with your workouts is just starting. Staying committed to showing up no matter how you feel on that particular day. The most difficult part is usually showing up, once you get started the rest is easy.”

What is your impact on your trainees?

“My intended impact on my trainees is hopefully entirely positive. My intention is to contribute more than I criticize. I want my athletes to see me as a resource for not only physical, but mentally and spiritually. I want to be someone they can trust and rely on. As well as be a coach that can physically help them achieve their goals.”

The relationship between trainers and trainees is extremely crucial in the sports world. It’s a bond that benefits both parties in improving each other. 

Make sure to tune into their podcast on music streaming services as well as check  out their YouTube and other social media pages during this time. Check in on their Instagram and maybe find the drive to also take a Zoom class to learn more about nutrition, mindsets, and more while gyms are closed.
