When we train athletes we don’t just develop a program, we create a tailored, functional program based on knowing the fundamentals of the athlete.
When we test athletes we have a proven process. We use our foundation biomechanical and movement analysis first to assess an athlete’s underpinning strengths and weaknesses. Following this, we assess an athlete’s basic conditioning elements like cardiovascular fitness and body composition.
We develop training programs of every nature. We are fully capable of analysing a sport, developing a yearly periodic plan, and designing a specific conditioning program to assist athletes reach their training goals. We can also break down programming into shorter phases, or periods, working one step at a time to have athletes peaking at the right time for competition.
Programs can also be developed for coaches or organisations to help them build a training regime that is right for their athletes or team.
