Sports performance training brings numerous advantages that are crucial for any athlete.
This includes:

1. A stronger body

Every sport requires a certain level of strength, but they vary according to which muscles need to be trained the most. Sports performance training ensures that you are strengthening and developing the right muscles in the right ways and tailoring your exercises specifically to your chosen discipline.

2. Reduced chances of injury

Perhaps most importantly, sports specific resistance training reduces the chances of getting injured on the field. It prepares muscles and joints for the rigors of sports and enable them to cope with high-intensity bursts of exercise. Expert training also removes any chance of accidentally getting hurt in the gym, and it helps athletes understand their bodies and when they need time to rest and recuperate.

3. Increased speed and power

One way that sports performance training tends to differ from regular physical training is that it focuses on teaching athletes how to control the forces of jumping, running, and gravity. Focusing on proper body alignment, landing, and stopping mechanics, it helps clients move more explosively and powerfully.

4. Improved flexibility

Flexibility is critical for achieving maximum performance, avoiding injury and decreasing aches and discomforts such as back pain. Sports performance training works to improve each athlete’s flexibility, joint mobility and posture, which are all essential elements for sporting success.

5. Enhanced stamina

Throughout your eight-to-12-week programme, Embody’s certified sports performance coaches will teach you how to maintain consistent levels of energy and play or perform at your best throughout every minute of each competition.

6. A positive mindset

Embody Fitness brings a 360-degree approach to fitness, and our talented sports professionals focus on training you both physically, and mentally. Your dedicated personal trainer will teach you how to persevere, never quit and overcome any emotions, fears or hurdles that are standing in your way.

Analysis plays a key part in our sports performance programmes.
We begin the process by discussing your goals and aspirations, and running a thorough physical assessment. Your personal trainer will measure your body composition and fat percentage, and lead you through a full movement analysis and screening procedure. This data is then used to set your targets and create your own personalised, step-by-step, life-changing sports performance programme. For instance, if you have a specific event to train for, your programme will be tailored to get you ready in plenty of time.
Your nutrition is also analysed carefully, and we provide you with a customised meal plan that delivers all the protein, energy, vitamins and minerals that your body needs to perform at its best.

We also continue to analyse your results throughout every step of your programme. Every few weeks, your trainer and nutritionist will assess your results and adjust your plan to make sure you stay on track. By constantly focusing on your sports performance, we ensure that you keep making progress.

I started my training program with Embody back in May 2022. I had a lot of skepticism and was pretty pessimistic about services like these because I had been trying for several months to achieve my fitness goals with no true success. I finally decided to give Embody a shot after doing research and seeing the results of previous clients. I enrolled in the 3 month program and after my initial consultation, I had a good feeling I was in the right place to achieve my fitness goals. I was assigned a personal trainer and a nutritionist who were very vital in helping me achieve my fitness goals. My trainer Ashley, was highly experienced in body transformation. He helped customized a workout regimen which pushed me every session to help reach my goals. The nutritionist John also put together a very well detailed and easy to follow nutrition plan, along with daily check ins and many others to make sure I stayed on track. At the end of my customized program, I was able to shed 15.6kg in 3 months and drop my body fat from 26.2 to 15.8. I am very happy with my results and will highly recommend this facility to anyone struggling to achieve their fitness goals because they will make sure they put you on the right path to achieve your goals. Your success is their ultimate motive and they proved that to me during my time there.

Embody as a whole was very professional and put together with its clear programs. I had joined the 8 week program where I’d met my trainer Sary and nutritionist John. Both were amazing to me during my time there. Sary had hand picked exercises that were best tailored to my goals as I could see my body change the way I wanted over the weeks. He was always encouraging me to do my best and I continue to do so now even after I’ve finished. I’ll probably go back for a few more sessions because it was the best! All while, John equipped me with good advice on food, sleep and recovery in general. Very good experience overall. Always made to feel at home at Embody.

I did the 8 week transformation at Embody. I’ve never been to a gym before and was very apprehensive. I found Embody to have a different atmosphere, great management and wonderful people working there, and I got amazing results! Thanks to Charlotte and Imogen who trained me. Charlotte is a great trainer with a very empathetic nature who really pushed my physical strength. Imogen understood my needs from the onset and worked out a balanced circuit for me and also proved to me what I was capable of. I highly recommend Embody and especially my trainers Imogen and Charlotte!

After not being active during for about 2 years I was searching for a gym which was well reputed and where results are guaranteed to kick start me back into training after covid. I came across embody fitness online and met Dave and decided to join. The gym facility is top class there is no doubt about it. My trainer Max has been guiding me and during our training every session I feel I’m doing the maximum that can be done in each session. During all exercises the trainers are there ensuring all movements are being done correctly, safely and at the optimum. Following the nutrition guidance, trusting the process and being consistent with the training results come naturally. It has been a great process and would recommend it to anyone who is serious about their health, training and results.

3 months ago I started exercising with Sari as my trainer in Embody Fitness.
Having tried multiple failed diets and workouts in the past, I decided to give Embody fitness a chance. The results I have experienced in the short span of 3 months is truly transformational. The Embody team know what they are doing! As for my trainer Sari, he’s been my biggest challenger yet loudest cheerleader. He has pushed me beyond what I have imagined, and yet known when to step back. The entire vibe at the gym is so supportive and collaborative. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to start a fitness transformation journey. Don’t be scared, trust the Embody way.
