Central Performance is home to some of NSW’s best distance runners. Our clients include state champions as well as athletes competing at the national and Olympic level. We love working with runners of all abilities from beginner to elite, and our strength and conditioning programs help runners perform at their best while minimising their risk of injury.
Strength and conditioning exercise is a vital part of any runner’s training program whether they are beginner, recreational or elite level. Strength training has been proven to increase running economy, reduce running injuries, and increase power output in runners of all levels. But strength training is more than just lifting weights. A good program will be multi-faceted and include a combination of modalities including plyometrics, mobility exercises, flexibility work, core training as well as bodyweight and weighted exercises.
We work with runners of all levels, and our strength and conditioning sessions are tailored to the specific needs of the individual athlete. Each program starts with an initial consultation where we take you through a thorough movement screen to identify your current strengths, weaknesses and asymmetries. Then we carefully consider your running goals, training history, event requirements, race calendar and injury history as we write a program specifically for your individual needs.
