Strength and conditioning sessions

Strengthening and Conditioning sessions take place weekly on a Monday night at Neiley, sessions start at 7.30pm and last a little over an hour.
Cost is only £1 per session as the club subsides the activity as it is a club event.

Sessions seek, at whatever your state of fitness, to help participants improve their core fitnesss, balance, power fitness and plyometrics. Regular attendance not only improves fitness, but also helps muscles to work better and can help the process of regaining fitness after injury.

The sessions are run by Phil Hanson who has a qualification from the relevant association.
He can be contacted on 07740867717, or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
