Strength and Conditioning forms an integral component of the development of athletes at all levels. At Precision Athletica, our Strength and Conditioning Coaches work primarily in the top tier (the PERFORMANCE tier) of the PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE PYRAMID. Once at this tier, an athlete has the requisite MOBILITY and CONTROL required, to safely undergo performance training.
At all levels of the Pyramid, we believe in using a functional-based training approach. Our entire performance-enhancement methodology is focussed on improving the quality of movement first, through creating strong foundations of MOBILITY and CONTROL. From these strong foundations, we can then reinforce these quality movement patterns through training under load – be it strength, endurance, power or agility. This ensures our athletes achieve real, “on field” improvements in their performance.
To maximise your strength and conditioning sessions, we use equipment including:
Our athletes’ programs are tailored to their individual needs, based on their performance testing results, and in consultation with physiotherapy, exercise physiology and sports science.
Gymnastics is at the pinnacle of our PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE PYRAMID. Building on the foundation of the CONTROL tier, where correct movement patterning and optimal spinal and joint stability has been achieved, we apply gymnastics principles to strength and power training, in the same way gymnasts train. Athletes from all sports can then apply these components of gymnastics to their sport, whether it be rugby, soccer, netball or any land-based sport.
