Synergy Sports is helping high schoolers and pros train 24/7/365

HOBART, Wis. (WFRV) – With a strange year that’s been impacted by Covid, a lot of social activities have either had to be canceled or pushed back.

That includes sports- both at the high school and professional level. High school students and professional athletes alike are finding new ways to stay fit and keep training.

Synergy Sports have got sports and physical training on the brain 24/7/365. Throughout the year, they constantly help athletes at all levels get in tip top shape. When the Covid-19 pandemic hit, they had to temporarily shut their doors. Now- with the fall sports season on the horizon- many athletes are looking to get back into the gym and train for the season ahead.

“We’re going to be here,” says Scotty Smith, Owner of Synergy Sports. “We understand that people are going to have their opinions on this and the public and that’s okay but I’ve done this for the 20-plus years that I’ve done this. It’s always been about the athletes and the kids. We see the need that they have and so despite what people’s feelings are on that, we’re going to try help these kids cope and mentally deal with and prepare for life as best we can. That’s our job and that’s what we’re going to do.”

They’ve already seen a few athletes come in to train- those that have a fall season and even those that who’s season had to be postponed.

“We do have to remember that these kids need to do something,” says Smith. “Hiding from this, despite what people think, is not the answer because it’s going to generate so many other things. These young kids need to get out and move, need to get out and exercise, take advantage of the nice weather right now. Go for a bike ride, go for a hike- whatever. It doesn’t always have to be here but we can’t just sit back and watch Netflix and wait for this thing to be over or we might be waiting for a while.”

Synergy Sports is open Monday through Friday, from 6:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. You can find more information, including how to book a training session, online right here. You can also check them out on their Facebook page.
