Training for Elite, Rehab and Fitness for all Age Groups

Running Coordination

The purpose is to teach the brain and the nervous system to activate the muscles in the right way at the right moment


The average sprint distance for example in football is 17m. 50% of the sprints are less than 10m. Acceleration is the key to success in team sports

Intermuscular Coordination

A high frequency of strides makes for faster acceleration. All muscles involved must be working together

Athletic Development

Athletes participate in physical conditioning that helps reduce the risk of injury to ensure on-going participation in long-term programs

Long-term Motivation

Health and wellbeing of the athlete will always be central to our long-term athletic development programs

Coaching Quality

We work with highly qualified professionals and a sound pedagogical approach. Both are fundamental to the success of long-term athletic development
