Sports Performance Analysis
What is a Sports Performance consultation?
All sports have multiple components. These include flexibility, strength, endurance, power, speed, agility, and balance. Athletes use a combination of these components whenever they are training or in competition. Each sport places unique demands on each of these elements. How well you meet these demands will determine how well you perform in action. Using the latest in sports science assessment equipment, your practitioner will assess your individual performance in each of these areas and then design a program to improve your bodies performance for your chosen sport.
What will a Sports Performance Consultation Involve?
Your consultation will begin with a brief personal and medical history. Then using state of the art video analysis and gym equipment, all aspects of your performance will be tested with gold standard clinical tests. All the information gathered will then be put through specific performance formulars to give data that can be used to track improvements and highlight areas of concern or deficits. .
Your assessing practitioner will then advise you on a potential performance enhancement program and a rough guide as to what can be done. This allows you to make an informed decision as to whether you would like to continue with treatment. If you choose to continue your practitioner will then design an indepth training program to decrease injury risks and improve athletic performance.
The assessment is physical in nature so make sure you wear comfortable nonrestrictive clothing. Anthropometry (body composition) will be assessed. For the most accurate reading please wear light clothing or have an option available to change into on the day. During your assessment you will be tested at your maximum capacity across all areas (don’t forget to bring a sweat towel and water bottle).
