Personal training is suitable for anyone looking to get fitter, stronger, faster or healthier. We help you to improve your athletic performance, regardless of your current level of fitness. You could be looking to run your first 5k, or preparing to represent your country in the next Olympics.
Our first meeting (either in person, over the phone or through our online performance coaching portal depending on where you are based and whether you prefer to train in person or be held accountable from your own location) will be to discuss your goals and set realistic targets towards helping you achieve them. We are based in Horsham, West Sussex but you can choose to visit us here or connect with us virtually. From there on in, we will be working on multiple aspects of your physical (and sometimes emotional) conditioning to deliver the best personal training for you.
Each person is unique, which is why our initial analysis of your condition is so important prior to any personal training beginning. This may include aspects of the following:
SMARTER Performance sports scientists (biomechanics) specialise in the assessment and monitoring of:
- Movement screening
- Power and velocity measures of vertical sport-specific movements
- Repetition maximum (e.g.,1-RM) testing
- Speed and agility testing
We also provide in-depth performance analysis reports for comparison between teams and individuals in order to make your personal training even more effective.
SMARTER Performance sports scientists (physiology) specialise in the assessment and monitoring of:
- Anthropometrical measures (i.e., height, weight, percentage body fat, skinfolds, girths, somatotyping)
- Blood lactate
- Hydration levels;
- VO2 testing and recovery (on-field)
- Sport-specific screening (eg golf – TPI)
As sports psychologists, we help individuals and teams identify that winning mindset to develop, enhance and maintain their optimal performance, then we develop personal training programmes around this. The mind has a key role to play in sport and what we think and how we feel will impact on any sporting performance just as much as physical fitness will. Sports performance psychology focuses on enhancing sports performance by helping athletes and coaches develop the mental skills to improve the way they operate within the sporting environment and it plays an important role in any individual personal training programme.
A positive mindset during personal training keeps you focused on making the small improvements to make you even better.
A positive mindset during competition may make that 1% difference between achieving your goals.
