Train like the Pros

The St. James is the official training partner of DC United, D.C.'s Major League Soccer organization. With a suggested schedule of nutritious breakfasts at Vim & Victor, drills on the turf in the Field House, lifting weights in the Strength & Conditioning House, cross-training in the Pool House and recovery services like sports massages and cryotherapy at Courted, athletes of all stripes can train like the pros at The St. James.

Our main goal in preseason was to get our players physically and mentally prepared for a rigorous MLS season. It's a lot of toll on the body and having access to a facility like the St. James makes my job as head of sports science and fitness, an easy one. In sports, people tend to look at what happens on the pitch but there are so many other factors that go into preparing a player for performing at their peak ability.

The indoor field was a great way to shield the players from the unpredictable weather elements in D.C. and it made sure they had a controlled environment to build up their fitness. But, the facilities outside of the field were tremendous. The ability to use the pool and gym gave us an extra element of control in terms of building up their fitness and helping them recover. I also look at what the players are consuming on a daily basis and how they can feed their body with the right food and supplements. The restaurant at the St. James catered wholesome and healthy food for our players so they could appropriately fuel and help their body recover after training sessions.
