Elite Performance
Performance for athletes is determined by considering the sport, goals and conditioning requirements. I provide you with the tools necessary to become world class. The programs consider speed, acceleration, agility, power, strength, energy systems, recovery and mental conditioning. The programs are personalised and continously monitoring performance. Train 1 on 1, in small groups (2-5), large groups (5-10) or with your team (11+).
Personal Training
Following an initial consultation and movement assessments, I will develop a personalized training plan. Your program will integrate a wide range of training disciplines and methods, ensuring your interest is high and your body is always challenged. To avoid injury and to see results, you must workout with correct form, a good routine, and stay motivated to keep at it. You can choose to train 1 on 1, in small groups (2-5) or in large groups (5+).
During the rehabilitation process I address mainly the 2nd phase rehabilitation - improving the body’s coordination and function through proper exercise. The goal is to help you recover fully and expedite your safe return to the activities you love – whether that is high performance professional sports, or activities you enjoy in your leisure time like running, hiking, or recreational sports. I welcome all patients, from athletes to the general public.
