Strength & Conditioning

  • strength
  • power
  • speed
  • endurance
  • stability
  • flexibility

HS&IM has a fully equipped private gym stacked full of everything needed to follow a structured approach to athletic strength and conditioning coaching. This involves:

Assessment & Monitoring

Before commencing a strength and conditioning coaching program, assessments are carried out on the athlete’s physical abilities. The assessments determine the athlete’s strength, weakness and structural abnormalities that impact sports performance. The strength and conditioning coaching programs are continuously monitored to ensure that there is an improvement in the athlete’s strengths, and problems are corrected.

Program Design

The basis of the Strength and Conditioning program design comes from the physical requirements and the demands on the physiological systems for the sport that the athlete competes.

Movement Preparation

Movement preparation prepares your body for action. Before a competition, a practice session or a workout movement preparation increases performance and reduces the risk of injury.
