Our unique sports performance & injury recovery personal training is a game changer for anyone wanting to step it up.

Our Philosophy at Optimum Performance

We train athletes amateur & pro to reach their optimum performance through personal training in Maidstone.

Working alongside the athletes coach we provide elite training to get them to the top of their game. Using our OP Model, we focus on our athletes physical fitness, sensory motor skills, mindset focus, nutrition and recovery. As well as helping them recover from any past injury and strengthen to prevent future injuries.

With our unique OP Model and approach, no two clients receive the same training, everyone receives individual, bespoke programming and advice. We work closely on a one to one basis, to evaluate where the athlete is now and where they aim to be, gathering information, tests and stats to build their program.

We work with athlete’s on their fitness, nutrition and injuries. Areas that may be missed in sport specific training.


We believe in training hard and training smart, using our proven model.

From our experience working with athletes, we have developed the OP personal training model. Working through each of these training stages allows our athletes to receive a fully rounded program so that no aspect is left under trained.
