The tour began with expert coach Marty demonstrating how to use the specialist equipment, and how you can tailor your gym workout to meet your training goals. Within the introduction, Marty also explained to students how elite sports men and women use the different types of equipment.
In the second part of the experience students were put through their paces by completing a 25-minute HITT workout. The workout provided students with further exercises that they could include within their own sports conditioning.
The experience ended with a group discussion about the elements of a healthy, active lifestyle and how it can have a positive impact on sports performance. All students came away from the experience feeling very positive and discussing how they were going to adapt their approach to training. Members of staff at Nuffield praised the behaviour of all students, and discussed the possibility of arranging another session soon.
