The Sports Performance Clinic – Ensuring Success

Our key to success is quality instruction and a commitment to deliver the most professional sessions possible.

To ensure performance gains, our Strength & Conditioning Coaches are rigorous in evaluating and monitoring technique and improvements. We are not just there to just count the reps and let you get away with poor technique. We analyse every element of the session, help correct your technique and modify things accordingly.

Every client is different with different objectives. Based on needs analysis and guided by technical, medical and scientific input our Strength & Conditioning coaches deliver individualised programs and support for each client – You won’t be given “off the shelf programmes”.

How is this different from personal training or a gym program set by a gym instructor?

The frequency of Personal training sessions is often weekly or less which can be costly.  Whist we can offer this type of motivational service, strength and conditioning coaching is designed to empower and educate the individual with their training.

The one to one sessions are a way of introducing new exercises and ensuring correct technique both during the session and afterwards, when unsupervised training occurs.

Your coaching doesn’t stop once the session is over.  Our service gives every S&C client multiple workouts to enable them to vary their gym sessions, making each session enjoyable and also prevent training plateaus.

Simple gym programs generally try to improve the 3 basic components of fitness: Strength, Stamina and Flexibility with mixed levels of success. However, exercise scientists now realise there is more to fitness and sports performance.  Nine components of fitness have been identified and it is the job of the Strength and Conditioning coach to integrate these elements with the individuals sport or activity, giving you the very best chance of achieving your goals effectively, efficiently and safely.
