AGILITY AND SPEED
While running in hockey should be the most natural thing in the world, it actually takes a high degree of body awareness, muscular strength and core stability to have a smooth and efficient running stride as you chase an opponent or evade one of your own.
The more efficient a running stride is, the faster you can go, the faster you can accelerate and the faster you can recover from hard efforts. If your core is weak, your muscles are unbalanced and your form is poor, then pain and injury in the back, hip, leg, knee and ankle can occur - it's so frustrating not being able to run because of injury.
Pilates For Sports is the ultimate whole body exercise system - it can help to improve core strength and muscle balance and is always done in the context of how to improve your running form, change of direction and ball striking. In this way it becomes very clear how Pilates For Sports can play a big role in not only preventing injury but also in improving performance. If you're looking to overcome some of these issues or simply keen to take the next step in your hockey, Pilates For Sports might just be the solution you have been looking for. Our programs are customised to your individual needs. We develop a program that will best enable you to achieve the core strength and muscle balance required to help you realise your running goals. So why not take the Pilates For Sports challenge to "Be Your Best".
REDUCED PAIN & INJURY
If your muscles around a joint are unbalanced and your core is weak, it means that some muscles will have to overwork to produce a movement. Over time this can lead to pain and even injury. Pilates For Sports will strengthen your core and help you to develop strong balanced muscles so that you can run and play efficiently with good form and with decreased chance of pain and injury.
“I have worked with athletes from all levels - beginners to professional and have seen first hand the benefits Pilates For Sports can provide to athletes. Whether you want to develop more power in your run or reduce your back pain, we customise the program to meet your goals.
This program will deliver the core strength and balanced muscles you need, to "Be Your Best" in the sport you love.
