Strength development
Stronger athletes produce more force and are harder to stop on the field, but not only that, they are more resilient to withstand hard knocks. Getting stronger should be one piece of your athletic development, and with the correct programming you too can become a strong unstoppable athlete.

Increase force development
With an increase in strength will come an increase in force, but it is essential, as an athlete you can express that force quickly. This requires the correct exercises and loading just at the right times. Our program will have explosive exercises all year uses techniques that are tried and tested to ensure our athletes are training to their full potential.

Injury prevention
Injury prevention seems to be thrown around lately as a bit of a buzz word, however it is still essential to ensure our athletes are fit to play and train all the time. It's true, all great programs will have injury prevention already planned out, but we perform this regularly, and it is more than just balance training.

Speed development
Speed is more than just performing gym based movements. Building on basic principals, our athletes have significantly increased acceleration and max velocity speeds. The careful planning of on-field speed sessions is when we put all the basics we've created in doors to play. In addition, we can asses your technique via video analysis to ensure you are maximising your potential.

Mobility
Mobility is more than the ability to touch your toes. It's about improving your joint range of motion which will also improve the muscles length tension relationship. This means you will be capable of producing more muscular force. In turn the joints will be less susceptible to injuries. Mobility will improve motor control, with improvements in mobility shown to last long term when maintained.

Because we use the best technology there is to deliver the training to your smart phone, this means we had to source the best company to support this and that is Trainheroic which are based in the USA. Although the prices are in US dollars, you still pay what was advertised in the UK in £GBP
