Athlete Strength & Conditioning Classes

As the season is coming to an end, it is time to start thinking about the off-season. There are a few questions worth asking yourself…..

  1. What are your plans to keep the fitness that you have gained and look great over summer?
  2. Did you have injuries this season that may have been prevented if you were stronger or fitter to start the season?
  3. Did your fitness or strength let you down this year?

Research shows us that approximately 60% of all injuries can be prevented with the correct conditioning and fitness training. The nature of sport with its explosive movements, repeated landings and sudden changes of direction means that injury risk is significantly increased. Our team has extensive experience in sports physiotherapy and understands the pressures that dynamic sport places on the body.

After a summer of sitting on our beautiful beaches, we need to ensure that your body is prepared for the pressures that our chosen sport places on the body. The body can be overloaded, increasing our risk of injury, if we place too much stress on getting fit and strong during the season.

At Avenues Physio-Fitness we have the answer to ensure that you maintain your fitness, improve your strength and ensure that next season is the best one yet. Our specialised Strength and Conditioning class are specifically designed to ensure you can perform at your peak. We combine injury prevention, cardiovascular fitness, strengthening, power and flexibility into a fun 45-minute class. Best of all, this is all done at your own pace in a fun and supportive small group environment. Join in now!

Classes run Tuesdays and Thursdays 6:45am and Tuesdays 5:30pm. Bookings are essential.

 

 

 

 

 

But it is not just strength and conditioning that we offer. Clinical Pilates, Yoga and combination Pilates/Yoga are also great for off-season conditioning options. See our website for more details regarding these classes.

Have a group or team that want to train together? Give us a call and we can organise a tailored class to suit you. Want a specialised program that you can do in your own time? We can help with that too, just give us a call to discuss.

Please do not hesitate to call our friendly team to discuss any of your fitness needs (07) 579-0421 or email physio@avenuesphysiofitness.co.nz

Clinical Pilates

Research published in 2011 defines Pilates as a mind–body exercise that encompasses strength, core stability, flexibility, muscle control, posture and breathing (Wells et al, 2012).

I have been a Physiotherapist now for 8 years, teaching Pilates for 2 years and playing National level hockey.  Below are some of my favourite parts of Pilates classes, both teaching and participating in them weekly.
