Strength & Conditioning
Strength training is a method of improving muscular strength by gradually increasing the ability to resist force through the use of free weights, machines, or the person's own body weight. Strength training sessions are designed to impose increasingly greater resistance, which in turn stimulates development of muscle strength to meet the added demand.
Strength and conditioning forms an integral part of the development of all Get Fit clients. The strength and conditioning discipline provides services in the areas of speed, agility, endurance, strength, stability, flexibility, injury prevention, management and rehabilitation.
Each client’s program is individually tailored to meet their specific needs. These programs are designed by your Get Fit trainer, in consultation with sports medicine practitioners and sport coaches, to allow each client to progressively achieve their optimal performance.
The aim of Get Fit strength and conditioning programs is to;
- develop correct exercise technique
- improve the strength base of all clients
- individualise programs to address client specific strengths and weaknesses
- improve clients specific movements and techniques through agility and speed sessions
- improve clients physical conditioning through sport/rehabilitation specific conditioning sessions
Each client is required to fill in a training diary for each weight training session. This enables your trainer to monitor each client’s progress and adjust programs to enhance the client’s development. Abdominal/core stability, injury prevention/rehabilitation, proprioception and agility programs are also performed as part of their overall strength and conditioning program.
