The purpose of this study was to determine the impact on the performance of men’s lacrosse players after participating in a rigorous fitness regimen. The measurement tools were a pre- and post-test measuring mile times, dips, bench press and pull-ups, as well as pre- and post-surveys with the coaching staff. This study involved use of a quasi-experimental design to measure the change in fitness levels and observed performance. Improvements in fitness metrics showed correlations with improved on-field performance. There is still room for research in this field, especially involving control groups and more structured testing conditions.
