OUR MISSION

NST (Nervous System Training) Sports Performance is now recognized as the official destination for all individual athletes and sports teams in the tri-county.  We have put together the most complete system of its kind.  NST is a top notch and professional facility with experienced and knowledgable staff, cutting edge science and technology, guidance in recovery and nutrition, and sport specific development.

Our goal as a staff is to not only improve athletes physically but also emotionally and functioning.  We want our athletes to be leaders in the facility as well as in their respective schools and communities.

We have dedicated NST to offering the very best in athletic sports performance training. There’s a reason why more athletes and teams train here than any other private facility in the Stark, Tuscawaras and Summit County area.

NE OHIO’S PREMIERE SPORTS TRAINING PROGRAM

NST (NERVOUS SYSTEM TRAINING) utilizes a unique style of training that focuses on neural recruitment. We focus on developing the neurological synapses of the nervous system and the muscle fibers it innervates. This process tricks the body to activate and recruit the maximum amount of fast twitch muscle fibers your genetics will allow. By improving fast twitch muscle fiber recruitment, our athletes dramatically increase SPEED, STRENGTH, POWER, and EXPLOSION.
