Tomorrow’s training techniques for today’s sports professionals.
Injuries are the greatest threat to performance in professional sports. The best ways to manage and avoid injury is to,
- Build up sufficient strength and fitness maintenance from the outset.
- If injury occurs provide rehabilitation package to restore full fitness
- Continue with longer term post injury support
My techniques compliment and enhance those of club coaches, physiotherapists, S & C coaches, land trainers and psychologists. I offer individual land fitness training, and specialised rehab techniques in the pool.

Caught up with the lovely Georgina Price, her personal training approach & injury prevention & rehabilitation background+success rate is amazing.
Combining water and land training results in performance excellence.
[box type=”info”]The significant benefits of water/pool based fitness and rehab are:
- Joints and muscles can be worked in the pool in a way that they cannot be on weight bearing land
- Improved flexibility and strengthening of muscles
- It helps rid lactic acid and stiffness after matches and training.
- Recovery times during rehabilitation are optimized
- It assists players in becoming spatially aware -mindful of their body and the way it moves that may improve reaction times.
- Breath control
- It is perfect for the colder season as levels of intense training are difficult to achieve in snow, rain and ice.
- Prevents “over training” and therefore reduces injuries.[/box]
Interest in water base fitness and rehab is a fast expanding area as the medical disciplines are recognising the significant benefits.
Individuals and clubs who are looking to gain the edge over the competition will begin to incorporate water fitness and rehab into their day to day training eventually.

I injured my ankle badly playing football so was unable to do any gym based conditioning to maintain my fitness levels. The lack of exercise meant I had lost some muscle tone and increased body fat. I approached Georgina about swimming coaching so that I could increase my fitness levels whilst I was still immobile. Not only did I increase in fitness, my technique was miles better and I also increased my muscle definition too. I would recommend her because she is a great coach who really knows what you are capable of and can break down coaching techniques so they are easy too understand too!
