Strength and Sports Conditioning Courses

  • Strength and Sports Conditioning

  • Level 3


This course will give you all the principles needed to train athletes to condition and improve their strength for competition. You will learn how to effectively analyse sporting movements, design skill development programmes, devise conditioning programmes and be able to combine all this together into a structured programme.

You will be able to work with exercise enthusiasts to increase their strength, speed and power and develop sports specific training approaches for individual sporting disciplines. This qualification gives enormous potential for fitness professionals to enter into the young but rapidly growing area of strength and sports conditioning.

Many athletes, in search of greater sporting performance, put almost all of their effort into improving the technical aspects of their chosen sport, but do not reach their full potential because they put insufficient effort into their physical conditioning and preparation. This strength and sports conditioning course will equip you to help athletes fill this gap and enhance their physical prowess to help them excel in their field.
