No matter what your goal, we will take care of every aspect of your physical development and nutrition habits to ensure you finally achieve what it is you've been dreaming of. You wont find any coach or programme that goes into the detail we do. Take a look for yourself and see whats included with our private coaching packages
Whether you're a complete beginner, or already into Weightlifting, Powerlifting or Strength & Conditioning for sport, we'll help you develop your maximal strength by guiding you through a large variety of classic lifts using an awesome collection of bars and strength equipment. Maximal strength is a key foundation regardless of whether your goal is to prevent injury, build muscle, get leaner, move quicker or become more agile. Learning to produce maximum force is a fundamental of any programme. Our carefully structured training programmes and coaching strategies will have you achieving personal bests week after week, making you more robust to tackle your goals head on.
As part of our bespoke virtual coaching service, you will be provided with a coaching app, where you can access your very own tailored training programme on your laptop, tablet and even your phone.
Your training programme will be carefully designed and structured around the information you provide us in your initial consultation and weekly questionnaires. Depending on your goals, training experience, injury history, gender, schedule and availability, your programme may include strength training, plyometrics, speed work, agility, coordination skill development, conditioning and injury prevention sessions. All of the prescriptions required to help you achieve your goal will be provided to you via our coaching app. This includes access to the relevant exercise demonstration videos and personalised tips to help improve the execution of your bespoke plan.
At this stage of your career, long term athletic development is becoming less important, rather, our focus is much more geared toward marginal gains and finding that extra 10% in performance improvements. This very much relies on incorporating the latest in sports science. No stone will be left unturned when it comes to the structuring of your strength and power training, agility and coordination work, along with speed and reaction sessions.
Arguably more important, is the longevity of your career. A lot of time, effort and attention to detail will be applied to your injury prevention work and prescribed recovery sessions.
Physical performance, efficient recovery and the reduction of injury risk will all come about easily if you are consistent in following the annual, quarterly and weekly structure we design for you, however we can take this another step further by refining your nutrition...
We all know how important nutrition is for health, optimising performance and recovering from training, but most people do not know where to begin. As part of our virtual coaching service, you will be provided with tailored nutrition advice. Whether you're at home and in a position to cook and prepare food yourself, or you're away and relying on hotel meals and restaurant food, you'll be given relevant information on how to structure your food, hydration and supplementation in order to get the best out of your training, performance as well as long term health.
The general structure of your nutrition plan will be provided to you in the aforementioned training app. You will also be provided with a brand new High Performance Recipe Book every single month, within which contains as many as 30 recipes or meal ideas including breakfast, small plates/snacks, main meals and desserts. These recipes will help you meet the nutritional prescriptions set out by your coach.
If you select our Elite package, we will go into even more detail with your nutrition by providing you with your own individualised prescriptions. This will include a detailed supplementation plan.
Nutrition is very personal, and for this reason there are many methods in which we can provide you with the guidance to ensure that any necessary changes are realistic and fit with your lifestyle whilst still helping you fuel your training, recover and achieve your goals.
No stone is left unturned when it comes to taking control of your nutrition and your long-term health.
Whether you're training at your local facility or away from home at a tournament, you will learn how to execute your training programme effectively through our virtual coaching system. It will require you to record videos of what it is you're prescribed to do that day, we will respond by returning your video with annotations and a recorded voice-over to help you improve exercise technique and execution to ensure that you're getting the most out of your programme.
Although you are provided with exercise demonstration videos within your programme, we understand that the learning process is very individual and therefore specific to you. As we get to learn more about you and witness how you move, we can develop effective cues and coaching points that are relevant to you, rather than relying on generic advice received from simply watching videos on YouTube.
Contact is not limited whatsoever. You are guaranteed a reply within 24 hours should you contact us via your training app and One to two FaceTime / video calls are to be had each week.
Through experience of working with a number of professionals remotely, we know how important this is. It's essential that you have someone to go to at a moments notice to access important advice and information. It is our aim to put a team behind you that can help ensure you achieve your goal.
