Chason Perry recently relocated his sports-athlete gym, Impact Performance RX (IPRX), to a larger location from Veterans Pkwy to 506 Manchester Expressway, Suite 4D. The gym offers programs for kids to adults, designed to build strength, speed, endurance, balance, coordination and most importantly, confidence. IPRX has had over 20 high school athletes obtain scholarships this year, some athletes are getting national recruiting recognition, and one member recently signed with the NFL. In the last year and a half, IPRX has trained three state championship baseball teams, helped Northside High School win their first title and trained Calvary Christian athletes as they won back-to-back titles. IPRX’s team of impressive coaches is helping to shape these area athletes to be champions.
Each coach has ample experience and a true love for the field. Owner Chason Perry was a coach for the NHL and at West Virginia University. He was part owner of a large training center in Cincinnati, OH, as well as the Human Peformance Director for a Special Operations Unit. He decided to open Impact Performance after searching the Columbus area for a youth physical training center and found a void. Impact’s director of Youth Training, Jonathan Karastury, has his Bachelors in Exercise Science as well as his Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) certification. Experienced staff coaches, Landon Rush and Kenderick Pratt, are currently finishing their CSCS certification as well. Although these coaches can work with professional athletes who are the top 1% in their game, they are also able to train a 7-year-old who just wants to be a better baseball player, or even retired clients who just want to extend their quality of life.
One of the features that sets Impact Performance apart is it’s not only for young athletes, in fact, it is the only facility in the area that allows parents the option to work out while their kids are trained. Their new location has 12,000 sq. ft. of space with 6,000 sq. ft. of turf. The gym and training floor area is roughly 3,500 sq. ft., and there is space for a future golf simulator and golf performance center. This fall, IPRX plans to offer an Adaptive Sports Training program for athletes who are recovering from an injury or have a disability. During the day, IPRX has adults training, youth sports speed and agility classes, introduction to weight lifting classes for middle school aged kids, and even the “Head Start” program going at the same time. IPRX also hosts sports camps, bringing in professional athletes to work with the kids, as well as facility rentals where teams can rent the indoor turf area for practice.
Impact Performance offers a variety of programs including some with unlimited training. The kids’ classes are limited to 10 each for more attentive instruction. Membership options available:
- The Head Start program (ages 7-10): $95/month and they can come 5 days a week if they choose to.
- Junior Varsity and Varsity (ages 11-14): as little as $115/month and offers classes 6 days a week.
- Adult memberships: $65/month for open gym to $115-$250 with personal training.
Discounts are provided for additional family members.
