Professional Training for tomorrows champions
This is a full day course based at St George's School and Oriam, Scotland's national sports centre.
Have you ever wondered what it is like to train like a professional athlete or, how to design training programmes worthy of a Gold medal at the next Commonwealth Games in Australia? Well this summer you can find out!! For one week in July you can experience the training that Scotland’s top level athletes receive at Oriam, the new state of the art sports performance centre in Edinburgh. Oriam was designed and built for Scotland’s high performance athletes and is not normally open to the public, until now! You will train in the gym used by the SRU before the 6 nations games and recover in the pool used by our national football team.
Over the course of the week you will undergo fitness tests in the purpose built indoor 3G pitch, perform high intensity interval training in the high performance wing of Oriam and recover in the hydropool before experiencing the infamous ‘ice bath’. Not only will you learn how to train like the professionals but you will learn the science behind how training programmes are designed from coaches working across a range of Commonwealth and Professional sports. By the end of the week you will know what it takes to follow in the footsteps of your favourite athlete by making training a part of your daily routine.
This is no normal Excel+ Activity and those attending will be with Neil's team for the full day. Price includes daily transport to Oriam, full access to facilities and lunch on Friday designed by the nutritional team. Due to the large amount of professional sportspeople at Oriam, it is hoped that participants may also get the chance to meet some of them and ask questions as well as get autographs.
Places are limited and participants must have no injuries at the time of the course.
