Yes, I do work with youths (from 14+) for sports performance. The way I approach youth training is different to how I would work with an over 18+. However, the key fundamentals are kept the same, this provides a safe yet challenging environment for youth athletes to develop & hone their performance.
You have to be committed because I am committed to you & your success. You have to be open to advice & willing to put the work in. Most importantly you’ve got to be ready, focused & determined to your goal.
So when clients come to work with me, we have a chat about their goals & aspirations. From there we develop a plan of action that normally involves a 3–6 month initial period depending on the goals & amount of training time that can be committed to.
Very often clients will pass the initial period into 18+ months as they reach their goals & then set their ambitions higher.
OP is like no other personal training experience. As an athlete, I am passionate & focused on pushing the limits. As a sports performance & injury recovery specialist my thirst for knowledge to develop the best for my athletes leads me to deliver the highest-grade sports performance training to athletes. Along with expert knowledge of injury recovery & prevention you get an experience like no other.
So nutrition plans & diet plans in the UK can only be given by registered dietitians.
Trainers can’t prescribe a meal plan, regardless of if they’re a nutritional advisor or nutritional coach qualification. This only allows them to offer advice & give you suggestions.
With Optimum Performance, you gain access to a database of 4,200 meal plans & 21 different categories of dietary requirements, pre-made by a registered dietician. Once you’ve picked your plan it’s synced straight to your OP app.
As a nutritional advisor myself I will be able to guide & advise you through this process.
Yes. I’m a qualified Corrective Exercise Specialist and can help you recover from an injury and stop it reoccurring.
I work on movement dysfunctions, such as imbalances or tightness, as well as continuation & development of what a physio has given you.
Once your initial treatment is completed with a physio, this where I pick up & begin to strengthen & add more depth to the previously injured body part. My knowledge gives me a high understanding of the human movement system.
This is where online personal training is for you.
You get all the same benefits as a 1:1 in-person training, the only difference is rather than 1-hour pt sessions you get 2x 30 minute progress calls per month to keep you on track & to ask any questions you may have.
Ultimately you still have the same sports performance trainer, same knowledge, same skill, same experience. All within the OP app & Zoom calls.
I train in Core The Gym in Maidstone, Kent, it’s a great environment for athletes. I also train clients online.
Sports coaches are great at what they do with all your sport-specific drills, knowledge & experience of the sport, experts at their craft.
When it comes to performance-based training this is where I am an expert. This is where my knowledge, experience & skills of the body & training principles. Working together with you & your coaches I help develop sports performance.
I always try to use this example: Pro players have a whole support team around them like coaches, sports performance specialist, physio’s & nutritionists all working together to get you to where you want to be.
The OP (Optimum Performance) app is where all of your needs are taken care of it’s the central hub & is a direct connection between you, me & your training.
Your individual program with all your workouts, your nutrition plan, stats, measurements & a direct link to me all in one tidy place. This is a fully integrated training approach.
