Strength & Conditioning

Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation for all Athletic Disciplines

Strength and Conditioning coaches often work in conjunction with an athlete’s coach to improve specific areas of performance. They do so by monitoring and developing resistance and speed-specific training programs which aim to optimize performance with targets in mind. Aside from making athletes faster, stronger, more agile, more resilient or whatever the requirements may be, such training also helps prevent injuries. Strength and Conditioning coaching is becoming more popular across the full spectrum of physically challenging sports, from golf to rugby, rowing to sprinting, athletics to motor racing.


As a practitioner of Olympic weightlifting and a big fan of ‘power workouts’ Judit understands the advantages and disadvantages of such training models.

“I see why some athletes are reluctant to use weights; how the results might interfere with technique, flexibility and body weight issues, but that entirely depends on what weights, repetitions and routines are used.

Each sport and discipline requires very specific solutions. A tennis player needs very different strength and conditioning to a runner or a rugby player. Individuals also respond to training in very different ways. It is, literally, a science! As a Biologist, and Strength & Conditioning Coach this stuff is what makes me tick. Strength and Conditioning is the key to developing stronger, faster and leaner athletes.” - Judit -

Strength and Conditioning goals include:

1. Improved endurance
2. Better movement efficiency, agility and flexibility 
3. Faster – more speed, acceleration
4. More stability
5. More robustness
6. More strength and power

Triathlon, Marathon Conditioning

Running marathons and competing in triathlons has never been more popular. But the risks of injury or a compromised biomechanics are common if the right resistance weight training, stretching and self-release techniques aren’t part of the competitor’s programme. Once injured, however slightly, the chances of an injury reoccurring later are greatly increased and by then it’s often really serious. It is very important that the right strength is built up in the right areas at the right time through weight resistance training.

Many runners in particular feel an hour long run is always more beneficial than an hour in the gym. Especially if a gym session might mean missing a running session. But the truth is very different. This is not about bodybuilding – it’s about optimizing your whole body system.

“Get the foundations right first! You are inviting injury if your muscles, ligaments and skeletal support structure aren’t strong, your biomechanics aren’t fit, especially so if your work involves sitting at a desk for long periods. The start of the training season is especially critical for weight-resistance training. Don't ignore it. Set yourself up for success instead with proper conditioning and functional training!” - Judit -
