High performance Strength and Conditioning room

Strength and Conditioning is the physical and physiological development of athletes for elite sport performance. The role of the S&C coach is to bridge the gap between the theory of training and applied training, helping athletes to become faster, stronger and more flexible and to build their muscular endurance so they perform better and remain injury free.

Strength and Conditioning is about more than lifting weights - it encompasses the entire development of the athlete and what is needed to improve physical performance. This includes plyometrics, speed and agility, endurance and core stability with strength training being just one piece of the jigsaw.

Strength and conditioning coach works alongside a sports coach to assist them in designing specific programmes that will address the particular need of the athlete, team and sport. There are many ways a well-constructed programme can add to the rehabilitation, speed, agility, endurance and strength of the athletes - a periodised programme that targets both strengths and weaknesses will produce the best possible performance.

When you are a coach of a team or an individual athlete Flex Fitness can offer superb strength and conditioning support in a brand new strength and conditioning suite.
