Strength & Conditioning
Strength is a key aspect to all athlete development programs. At EP our coaches work with a variety of athletes from all sporting code backgrounds and understand that you require individual strength programs and testing measures for not only your individual sport, but also you as an individual athlete.
The balance and strength of the tissues in your body rely largely on the amount of exercise you perform each week. This exercise increases the fitness of the tissues in your body, whether through building muscles, burning fat or increasing the efficiency of your organs.
Power is defined as the ability to generate as much force as fast as possible. It is needed for athletic movements such as olympic movements (clean and jerk), swinging a baseball bat, swinging a golf club, and running through a tackle. Power does require strength and speed to develop force quickly and our programs reflect this with a wholistic approach to developing our athletes.
The ability for an athlete to move loads quickly and with precision is vital for performance in all exercise. Our programming develops these aspects of our athletes in a safe progressive environment with testing designed specifically for the athlete and their needs.
