What is Strength & Conditioning?
Strength & Conditioning (S&C) is a form of exercise that develops a variety of tools to enhance movement, health and physical performance. S&C is for anyone and everyone interested in exercise and improving their physical capabilities – from an everyday athlete to an elite high-performance athlete. There are two main goals within S&C: to increase performance and to prevent or reduce injuries. This process is done by improving general qualities, such as movement, core strength, posture, stability and balance, as well as the more sport-specific qualities of speed, strength and power.
