Strength & Conditioning

Strength and Conditioning Coaching describes the design, delivery and demonstration of bespoke performance orientated physical preparation programmes.


A Strength and Conditioning Coach works with individuals or teams, with the objective of improving performance in a particular sport.


The scope of Strength and Conditioning Coaching extends to strength, speed, power, endurance, agility and flexibility.


Another important part of Strength and conditioning is to help clients build up a strong athletic foundation, therefore reducing the chance of injuries. Following and injury, correct rehabilitation and conditioning is crucial in order for athletes to have a safe return to any sport.
