sports fitness

Teenagers want to be be faster, fitter, stronger, but knowing how to train safely and effectively to achieve optimal performance whilst reducing the risk of injury or burn-out is key.

I’ve spent my career training teenagers for optimal performance in their chosen sport.

Who is it for?

Players of all sports who are balancing school or college with one or more sports practices and matches. Players who are keen to improve their own fitness and want a safe and effective way of getting results. Players who have limited time in the day and week and need sessions that are easy to fit in.

What does your teenager get?

Weekly modules that contain exercise videos with detailed instruction on how to perform exercises correctly. Handouts with information on session plans, nutrition and structuring your training. Audio podcasts that explain the week’s module and give advice on how to fit it all in.

There is so much information, in a range of different media formats, its keeps you interested and motivated.” Christine Farr, mother of Helen (15, pictured right).

Client Testimonials

Dan James – Paralympian
During the build up to the Beijing Paralympics I was fortunate to be able to train with Excelsior. During this time James delivered a specific eleven month training block to me starting from base fitness up to more complex circuits and exercises. James would always take part in our sessions and this really helped motivate me, as we would push each other to achieve during the sessions. James was flexible around my shift work and would always answer any questions I had, however daft they sounded!
