What are the benefits?

You will get the chance to work with a qualified and experienced strength and conditioning practitioner.

If you are interested in maximising your potential we can help you achieve this.

We can identify specific elements of your strength and conditioning requirements, including:

  • Which part of the force-velocity relationship you need to work on to maximise performance
  • Maximum strength
  • Maximum speed – sprint performance
  • Acceleration
  • Power
  • Change of direction ability

We can help you identify how to avoid injury by implementing prehab exercises on an individual or group basis
