We scrutinise the way you train in the gym or dojo; on the street, field or pitch. We analyse the way you run, throw a kick, kick a ball or lift weights so we can improve the way your body moves and protect against future injury.
Even if you’re not injured now, you may well have injury skeletons in your locker. So, using interviewing and slow-motion, full-body video analysis of the way you move, we build up an historic injury profile and current movement profile, then create a risk analysis for the future. We crack historic injury cases like a detective for the body. No matter how long ago you suffered an injury or trauma, and regardless of how you think it affected the movement of your body, it’s all connected and it all leaves a trace. Even psychological and vascular traumas take their toll on the body.
Exercise forms the foundation of ProCare's philosophy but we are also experts in other areas which affect performance including nutrition, sleep, relaxation and psychology. We combine skilled movement and physical training with optimal rest, recovery, appropriate diet and a strong mind so you can excel in your chosen sport. Whatever it is you want to do: lose weight, gain muscle, or perform better, we will help you achieve it.
We use a mindful approach to athletic training and are realistic about goals. It's important that you understand where you are starting from and where you want to be in the future. Collaboratively, we set short and long term goals so that training is tailored to you, and around your life. If you only have 20 minutes for a workout, we’ll design one for you. After spending time at the proCare clinic you will be robust, adaptable and complete.
When I was told I had a hip problem, there were lots of tears! After 5 years of competing at the elite level in the UK, it was my dream come true to be signed by a top netball club in Sydney. My ambition is to represent Australia, and compete in the ANZ championship, the world's premier netball league. With the diagnosis, I felt like I was in a black hole emotionally and just falling. But Andrew quickly resolved my hip problem and then moved on to training methods for me to protect and develop my body for the rigours of the elite game. Surprisingly, Andrew's unique insight also enabled me to better understand how I run, turn, jump and stop, which previously, I had just taken for granted. The outcome is that I now feel so much stronger in every area, with a renewed confidence in my ability. Thankfully, my Australian coaches have been very patient, so now I cannot wait to compete in the Southern Hemisphere. With Andrew's help, my dream is now alive again! He is a great guy, is brilliant at his job, and I look forward to training with him exclusively, when I am back in the UK. I am just so grateful to him.
