Our S&C coaches work in partnership with our Chartered Physiotherapists, to design programmes which are tailored to your individual needs.

S&C for all:

Benefits include increased muscle mass and bone density, improved balance and reduced risk of chronic disease (heart and lung conditions).


S&C for Athletes:

Our S&C programmes focus on the development of strength, speed, power, flexibility and plyometric capabilities. Our programmes are created to optimise athletic performance by addressing areas for improvement and enhancing areas of strength.

We highly recommend you book in for Athletic Performance Testing which will allow us to accurately document your starting point in order to achieve your desired goals.

‘You Can’t Go Wrong Getting Strong’.

Strength and conditioning training helps to improve the strength of the musculoskeletal system. Research has shown that increased strength helps to reduce the risk of suffering future injuries. If you have a long history of low back pain, recurring muscle strains or persistent aches and pains in your joints (shoulders, hips, knees) S&C training will be a suitable form of exercise for you.
