For many Performance Sport athletes, Strength & Conditioning training is at the heart of their training programmes.

Essentially, Strength & Conditioning will help you to be the best version of you, through both strength training and aerobic conditioning (and a variety of other methods too).

One of the top benefits of Strength & Conditioning training is that it will help protect you from preventable injuries. Over time, you may also see a gradual improvement in your body’s all-round movement too. Other advantages include an improved posture, healthy bones and increased fitness.

You will have access to two sessions each week during term time (one Strength & Conditioning session and one self-managed session).

You’ll also be able to access two additional services each week including a Prehab/Recovery session and a Chiropractic Rehab session (both of which are optional). Plus there’s the Team Buildr app with options such as a tailored fitness plan and direct tutor support.
