Lifting For Sport

A workshop for team-based athletes at their sporting club.

Athletes will learn weight-training technique and understand what is relevant to their position in the team.

Recovery Methods

A workshop designed for high school or club sport.

Sleep, nutrition and taking care of your body are essential parts of being an athlete.

Combining advice on sleep hygiene, post-workout nutrition, and optimal hydration with cutting edge science, this presentation is the perfect program to help your team become true recovery pros.

Fitness testing

Fitness testing occurs twice a pre season to measure game-readiness.

After testing, Jack will thoroughly analyse the data and create an appropriate result-based program for the athlete. The program will target the player’s weaknesses and optimise their strengths to facilitate the development of a well-rounded and powerful athlete. Previous injury and personal objectives are taken into consideration, as Jack will consult with the coaching staff and any relevant medical team to create the best possible and safest program for the athlete.

Athletic Development

On-going strength and conditioning services for schools and clubs. With a range of dynamic services available, Jack can come to your facility on a regular basis to deliver programming, training and performance workshops to up-skill your staff and/or players. Services include weight lifting technique, agility and running drills, integrating GPS technology, athlete wellness, and boxing/combat for players.
