In most sports, once you reach the elite level it becomes easy. You eat, train, recover, sleep and repeat while getting paid to do it and having access to some of the best training and recovery routines available. Unfortunately, if you are on the fringe of this level, or in a poorly funded sport, you don’t receive the same level of care and it’s up to you to go and find it.
Here’s where we come in. Our goal is to provide the services you would receive in a National Level Program while you’re striving to get there, or just to help you be the best you can be while looking after your body.
Even physical development recourses, such as Physio, Chiro, OT or Personal Trainers often just target part of the player’s physical development, rarely integrating the physical development with sport-specific skills and even less often considering the players total weekly commitments and loads on top of the rehab or strength work.
A solution can be found to this messy situation by providing a service overseeing the individual athletes entire physical training program and targeting two key areas.
1. Improving physical resilience. We do this by identifying the most stressful moments inside your sport, and providing a handful of exercises or drills that provide an opportunity for the body to learn how to best protect itself and perform in them. Getting stronger at exercises is useless if that exercise doesn’t directly improve physical performance in the sport.
2. Monitoring all training loads and the responses. We implement a simple, easy to use system that quantifies all physical activity performed each week while monitoring the athlete’s response to the changes in training load. High-risk days are flagged and this is communicated to the athletes and in advance, with suggested increases, or reductions in training.
