What is Strength & Conditioning?
S&C is a specialist area encompassing the physical preparation of athletes for performance in sport. It includes processes that result in physical adaptations (getting stronger,
being more powerful etc) that complement other aspects of an athlete's development.
Strength work involves all forms of resistance training, aiming to induce specific physical adaptations that transfer to the sporting arena. Equally, athlete's are conditioned to improve change of direction speed, agility, endurance & flexibility, which can positively impact on an athlete's performance.
Effective programming in S&C presents the best synergistic combination for optimum development & perofmrnace enhancement, whilst reducing the risk of injury. Everything we do is steered by scientific research and by qualified and experienced coaches.
What are the benefits?
The primary bene t is the increased resistance to injury caused by improvements in strength, addressing muscular imbalances and increasing exibility and mobility of muscles and joints. Secondly, supporting increases in sporting performance using sports speci c targeted exercises and protocols.
Who is it for?
S&C is for anyone and everyone. Primarily the S&C program has been set up to support our young tennis players and help them improve the physical component of their tennis skills. However, the methods used can be adapted to any age and experience, also for any sport or recreational activity. Please note it is not just for people who engage in sport, S&C can address many aspects of physical conditioning (for example after injury).
