FAQ - things people ask us about
strength and conditioning.

Which sports do your strength coaches work with?

All of them! Our strength coaches have a range of experiences through participation themselves as well as working with many high performing young athletes in the past. Volleyball, basketball, wrestling, you name it!

Whether or not our coaches have played or worked with athletes who play a specific sport, our knowledge base and network fully supports training young athletes in sports that are new to us. We can design effective programs that are both broad and specific to your sport, whatever meets your needs. 

On top of that, this 6 week program covers the fundamentals of strength training. Whether you’re a competitive swimmer or aspiring to be a pro snowboard, you’ll see some awesome improvements in your strength and confidence in movement. 

Is strength training safe?

Yes! A common misconception is that strength training is dangerous for youth athletes. We assure you, this is not the case, and unfortunately it’s held many kids back from reaching their highest potential. 

Strength training can be dangerous for youth (or anyone really) if:

  • they haven’t learned the proper and safe technique for an exercise
  • they load too heavy or progress too quickly
  • they use equipment incorrectly

In our strength and conditioning programs, a strength coach guides participants through a program designed to cover the fundamentals of strength training in a safe environment. With proper supervision and encouragement, you can increase your strength, endurance, sport-specific skills, and confidence!

Here's what they say:

I highly recommend Johnny (RMT) as I have been booking sessions with him for hip/lower body issues. My posture, flexibility, and movement have drastically improved within a few sessions. Big thanks to Johnny as I believe these results were made possible by his massage techniques, patience in listening to what I want to achieve, and his genuine desire to help get me to where I want to be. Johnny has an athletic, multi-sport background and was able to educate me on ways I can improve my movements in hockey and golf via stretches, therapy, and muscle groups to target, which I found to be very valuable. Thanks to Johnny, my experience at the clinic has been excellent. In addition, the clinic is very clean, online booking system is straightforward, and parking is convenient.

As an ageing athlete holding on to whatever years he has left doing sports, I consider Heather to be one of.....if not, the BEST Physio therapists I've ever had. Professional, Considerate and Respectful.

I’ve been doing strength training with Shauna after an injury — this is my first time working with a strength coach and I’m beyond blown away. Her knowledge and expertise are so valuable, and her approach runs totally counter to all of the toxic diet/fitness culture stuff I was afraid of encountering. I feel safe and strong and supported. Can’t recommend enough!!
