Strength & Conditioning - Blackheath

Here at the Better Body Group, we’ve always been passionate about helping athletes and teams increase their sporting ability. To do this, we utilise strength and conditioning training with periodic programs that focus on improving power and speed, whilst reducing injury risk and increasing your work capacity, specific to your sport and needs.

The strength and conditioning programme is aimed at amateur, semi-pro or professional athletes from 16 years of age up to master’s level. The aim is to help you reach your sporting potential and to keep you on the pitch, court or track week in, week out.

The Better Body Group work with schools, sports clubs and university athletes, as well as regional and national competitors. We use the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and physical performance tests (matched to your sport or athletic event) to identify possible areas of improvement and concern.

We’ll use the results, working in collaboration with your coach or team as necessary, to build a specifically personalised programme, in sync with your sport’s season, making sure you’re ready to perform when it counts. We’ll focus on attributes such as strength, speed, power, flexibility and endurance as is appropriate to you and your goals.

Like all our programmes, strength and conditioning at the BBG starts with a free 30 minute consultation to assess your current levels, as well as identify your targets and goals as an athlete.

The S&C personal training team is run by Hamzat Ahmed and made up of exercise specialists with a passionate interest in strength training. As always, you can expect graduate and postgraduate qualifications to match their enthusiasm, and sporting backgrounds up to and including Olympic level.

  • Strength testing (only done on site at Blackheath)
  • Power Testing
  • Straight line speed testing
  • Agility testing
  • Yo-Yo Intermittent Recovery test*
*unlike some other fitness tests which only test your ability to run at one speed, the Yo-Yo test more specifically tests the demands of actual sport, using a series of repeated sprints with short rest periods, much like you would do during most sports.

The price includes 2 x 60 minute sessions, separated by your block of pre-season training. Based on your performance during the pre-season testing we will also give training recommendations and program some gym and field based sessions to help improve your weakest areas.
