Strength and conditioning training is aimed at those who want to build up greater cardiovascular and muscular endurance, as well as strength. While bodybuilding focusses on increasing muscle mass, strength and conditioning focusses on endurance based workouts which also rely on lifting weights and other resistance exercises. For athletes involved in sports, programmes vary depending on whether the sport is in season or not. During the off seasons, the conditioning programme can be quite rigorous, while in season the programmes tend to focus on maintenance.
Along with enhanced strength and functional capacity, other benefits include:
- Injury prevention and recovery by focussing on body parts which are prone to injury from a particular sporting activity
- Increased bone density
- Improved metabolism
- Anti-aging effects
- Greater cardiovascular resilience
We provide systematic personalised training programmes including sports specific programmes aimed at those training for events, such as Ironman, triathlons, marathons, power lifting, combat sports etc. Our team can help you break through plateaus in your training which most people and athletes experience at some point in their routine.
Starting with a thorough fitness assessment, we teach proper lifting techniques, and then supervise and motivate our clients as they work out before another assessment at the end of their programme. Nutrition is also of great importance to a strength and conditioning programme to allow the body to improve and repair itself.
