2 TRUSTED PROGRAMS DELIVERING FOR PLAYERS & CLUBS GLOBALLY
Browsing content online will suggest that consistently high levels of performance are subject to almost mythical coaching, technologies and hidden secrets.
The great secret is that there is no secret - it’s all about building a club/team culture of solid preparation programs based on both practical experience and science that will cater for players individually and collectively over the long-term.
Our 'Be Your Best’ and “Return to Play’ programs meet players and teams where they are at right now - we listen carefully to their desired outcomes and go about implementing preparation programs that are sustainable and manageable within a developing culture of excellence.
BE YOUR BEST
Performing to a consistent level that allows you to reach your potential is the goal of every player at every level.
‘Be Your Best’ is geared towards planning and implementing preparation practices that, over the long term, allows the player(s) to enjoy consistent improvement in a manner responsible and appropriate to their age/stage.
At all times we look to integrate physical, technical, tactical and mental/emotional preparations in a way that reflects the specific demands of your game and desired performance.
RETURN TO PLAY
Published studies in Ireland show that 66%+ of players who suffer an injury this season will go on to suffer another similar/same injury episode.
This effectively means that a player is ‘chasing’ performance all season and, in fact, will struggle to improve incrementally.
In the main this is due to players returning to training and playing too soon after their injury treatment is complete — the absence of pain is taken to mean all is well when in fact the underlying causes, as research suggests, have not been identified and tackled.
‘Return to Play’ is a methodical S&C-based approach to a players return from injury to ensure they are returning to play conditioned and robust to the demands they are about to endure.
Using technologies such as VX Sport and AnaMoLIVE we can plot, measure and evaluate the players progress and carefully plan each next step.
Our ultimate success is to introduce the players and club to a wide range of new habits and practices that will sustain their enjoyment throughout their sporting career by helping them achieve their potential regardless of grade or status.
You will spend money and time regardless…..getting return on your investment is another story. Our programs and approaches have been proven and trusted to deliver for clubs at all ages and grades to ensure higher levels of performance and lower injury risk - all for an investment level that makes sense.
Whether an individual player, team or club you can dictate your future by establishing solid foundations now. If your present approaches are not working as you would like then surely it makes sense to change direction in favour of practices and methods that are trusted and proven to deliver towards a better future?
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
“Paul is, in my opinion, without doubt one of the best practitioners working in Ireland today. I have learned so much about myself but also what it takes to succeed from him. He has an ability and skill to not only deliver results but also the ability to improve every player/person that comes into contact with him.
I believe Paul achieves this by creating cultures in which players/people can succeed. Paul sets high standards for players and people that come into contact with him and this in turn leads to every individual bettering themselves.”
“A fantastic and knowledgeable coach, Paul is one of the most motivated people I've come across. Paul is enormously knowledgeable and well-spoken, hugely generous with his time and always makes himself available to all of us who seek his guidance.
His abilities range far beyond generic strength & conditioning programs into overall athletic development particularly in the area of player monitoring through GPS analysis.
Having worked closely with Paul over the last number of years to assist in the implementation of a Long Term Development Program/Pathway for inter-county footballers and hurlers, he provided expertise, knowledge and vision for the design and implementation of the programme. On a personal level it was a great experience to work alongside Paul given his knowledge and expertise in such a large number of areas.”
