Sports Specific Fitness & Conditioning
A 'sports specific' exercise program must be tailored to suit the demands of your sport, whilst concurrently meeting your needs as an individual. You will undergo a 3-dimensional stability assessment to discover functional 'WEAK LINKS' that relate to performance deficits, injury risk, technique faults or pain during performance of your sport. You will then embark on a training program designed to eliminate any sports specific deficits with reference to stability, strength, cardiovascular fitness and flexibility.
Pre Natal Exercise

Specific pre-natal exercise can also reduce incidence of back pain, provide oxygen rich blood for your baby, and speed up the return to your pre pregnancy shape after delivery. With specific guidelines and goals for each trimester, this is one of the best times to seek expert advice.
Post-Natal Abdominal Retraining (Baby welcome!)
