Here at the Panorama Wellness and Sports Institute, we provide kids, ages 7-18 years old, a place to come exercise that is unlike any kids program that you would receive from any other gym. We offer a variety of different classes including our Freshman classes (ages 7-11), Junior Varsity classes (ages 12-14) and Varsity classes (ages 15-18), as well as speed and agility and strength clinics for kids of all ages. What separates The Institute from your run of the mill gym, besides our incredible trainers and state of the art facility, is the fact that we will not only provide the best quality training for you and your child, but we strive to also build character in all of our younger clients and instill the right work ethic to help them succeed in and out of the facility.

The Academy has something for everyone from general fitness to elite athletes – We recognize that not every athlete has the same training needs. The Hess Sports Performance Academy is a 5-Level progressive athletic development program designed for athletes in grades K-12. The Sports Performance curriculum uses science and technology to increase overall athleticism while preventing injury. classes are organized by age and ability and the program allows kids to progress through the program based on performance in an age appropriate.  Performance levels offer 1 to 4 sessions per week  The Academy starts March 4 and runs throughout the year in four 12 week cycles.


Not only is this program backed by science, it is designed by Steve Hess himself. Steve Hess spent 21 years as head strength and conditioning coach of the NBA’s Denver Nuggets. So he knows professional athletes and he is accustomed to designing programs that improve the performance of athletes. Sean White, our Director of Youth Performance, has 15 years of experience working with young athletes and his personal mission to know and connect with every athlete in the program


This program is for those individuals who are just getting active to serious and elite athletes that want to move their game to the next level.  Let us help get athletes in the best shape possible - we aim to enhance peak performance and to condition athletes to prevent injury

We do Things Different Here – THE SCIPER SCORE


Every athlete who enters the program will undergo a unique assessment that will utilize quantitative data along with on-field drills to determine their own individual SciPer score; the standard measurement of true athleticism. We use field-testing and laser timing to record performance and our testing drills are collected from the NBA, NFL, MLB and MLS. The results of these drills, combined with a DARI musculoskeletal analysis, to look at the joint action and movement patterns, provide us with your unique score and with that we can track your athletic improvement and progression which allows us to guarantee that we can improve athletic performance because the proof is in the numbers!

Using your Sciper Score we can direct and plan your special training program and measure your improvement.
