Strength & Conditioning
Strength and Conditioning forms an essential component for the development of athletes of all levels. It is also beneficial for those who simply want to improve their overall health and function in all manners of daily living, resulting in a better quality of life.
At Physio Fit, we like to practice what we preach! Not only have our physiotherapists undergone extensive training at university level in the fields of Exercise Science and Strength and Conditioning, they train themselves using various methods and therefore have a greater understanding of your training demands and goals.
Strength and conditioning consults are tailored to each individual, with specific testing carried out in order to establish current levels of strength and function. We then take these results and create a personalised program that meets the individual’s goals and requirements to enhance performance.
Our focus is to improve your quality of movement, through building strong foundations of functional mobility, strength, power and endurance. From these, we can then reinforce quality movement patterns under load that can carry over to everyday activities and sporting performance.
Strength and conditioning services focusing on performance include assistance with technique and programming in;
- Resistance training
- Aerobic conditioning
- Olympic lifting
- Functional mobility
- Sport specific training
- Athletic development and performance.
