SPG physical training starts in the right place. We complete sport specific and functional movement assessments prior to the design and development of an athlete’s individual training program. This ensures that training is tailored to specifically develop the physical parameters to both reduce the incidence of injury and optimize performance
Speed & Agility Training
SPG has unique performance programs to develop speed, movement and reaction skills; using unique, dynamic movement games and drills which directly transfer to athletic performance. Developing a centered athletic body position, the ability to accelerate and cut in any direction, strong body positioning to move in any direction, the ability to move well to both sides, quicker reactions to opponents, and greater balance & stability so that your athlete is less likely to get hurt.
SPG’s training is based on functional movement, in that it employs an integrated approach involving multiple body parts and multiple planes of movement, in movements that are relative to the movements in the sport. The body does not move its muscles in isolation; rather it works as a unit, a kinetic chain, with each link being an interrelated and interdependent part of the whole movement. Functional training emphasizes the training of the kinetic chain, and as such the physical gains achieved transfer well to performance and ensure maximum performance enhancement.
