At the moment life is moving forward at quite a pace. I have just started as a physiotherapist at a premiership football club and starting my own business – Technique Physiotherapy & Sports Medicine. It’s pretty exciting!
Having getting involved at the Chelsea FC academy, I have recently had first hand experience of the fitness testing that goes on at an elite level football club. It was eye opening and really increased my knowledge of what is expected of sports men and women at the top of their game.
This gave me an idea – why not put amateur sportsmen through similar tests? The fitness tests that the pro’s are doing are also transferable to everyone. Check out our Fitness Testing info to see what we can offer you.
Our tests involve a mixture of disciplines required to succeed in sport and give a baseline of fitness to improve upon, to help you get more from your training. They also give you a marker for returning to sport from injury, should that dreaded situation ever occur.
So here are the Technique Five – a selection of our key tests transferable to any walk of life, and designed to measure a base line of fitness:
1. Bleep Test – measures cardiovascular fitness, this can be easily adapted if you have difficulty running.
