Wolves juniors conditioned for success
Warrington Wolves Under 19s Academy took their training off site last week to trial the latest in strength and conditioning equipment.
Body Active has a well-established partnership with the Warrington club as its official sports supplement provider and has recently extended its remit within the field of sport, training and nutrition to link in with new local company Primal Strength and Conditioning.
Based near to The Halliwell Jones Stadium this new facility has the capability to assist the young players in building on the regular work carried out in the training gym by providing highly specialised and custom-made equipment.
Paul O'Brien from the new conditioning gym explained further. "We have a lot of specialised equipment which you wouldn't see in normal commercial gyms. It's aimed at, not just athletes, but everyday people as well; we are looking to merge the two.
"The indoor grass, weighted sledges, ropes and tyres are more functional things for the rugby guys and athletes, and they will all benefit from this kind of set-up."
Gareth Whittaker, Wolves' head of junior strength and conditioning, added: "Training at Primal was a great experience for our players as it allowed them to experience some new training methods and specialised training equipment. For me the change of training environment was been a really bonus too and gave the session a really good atmosphere and intensity leading into an important part of the season for us where the players need to be physically and mentally prepared. Primal is an outstanding facility to train at, also receiving first-class coaching and guidance for any training goal. We are looking to set up future sessions with Primal as I feel it will add real value to our strength and conditioning programme at Warrington Wolves."
