MISSION:

Provide foundational education to future S&C Professionals and support lifelong education process to current S&C Professionals.​

 

PHILOSOPHY:

Since the beginning, the approaches and practices are always based on  the philosophies that:

  • Scientific based reasoning will always guide all practical application.

  • Continuous research & development process is a must for up-to-date and verified  knowledge.

  • Functional training and free weights will always be the first choice in training approach.

  • Development of general fitness prior to sports specific strength and endurance program.

  • Core strength and conditioning will be the utmost important in training.

  • Both undulating periodization and linear periodization of strength will be used instead of traditionally linear periodization alone, depending on competition format of the participating team/athletes.

  • Transfer of knowledge during training from trainers/coaches to athletes will be one of the focus during training session

  • Always adhere to fitness professional code of ethics.

Human Performance...

What is the meaning of human performance? Do strength & conditioning only applies to elite athletes within competitive sporting environment only? The answers will varied from one individuals to another, from one institutions to another. Human performance is about their capabilities and skills to perform their needs and wants in daily life. It is not just about competitive sports per se.  Strength and conditioning  is about reshaping the human body with muscular strength as it pinnacle. It is about physical strength as the prominent contributors to physical performance and its interaction with other component of fitness, for systematic manipulation of stimulus and adaptation, in a planned exercise and training program.
