Conditioning

With a strong team of qualified Sports Scientists and Biokineticists. We offer specialised Strength and Conditioning training for general fitness as well as a range of sports, including:


Team Bio MechaniXWhile the human body is ‘born to run’ and is very capable of performing amazing physical feats in the form of many different sports, we are not designed to do so at a competitive level on a regular basis. Add to this a lifetime of being deskbound and immobile, and we have a recipe for disaster when it comes to movement biomechanics. This is why even novice athletes are exposed to a significant risk of injuries.

At Bio MechaniX we believe that any sporting program should include a firm foundation of conditioning to prepare the body for the ‘unnatural’ load that is competitive sport.

Running

Our team members are avid runners and regularly participate in road and trail runs, all to the advantage of our clients who benefit from a depth of knowledge, insight and professional conditioning & rehabilitative techniques.

Having worked with every level of runner from novices to trail ultra-marathoners, we have a strong grasp of all things running. From shoe prescriptions to gait analysis, muscle imbalance, injury rehabilitation and performance conditioning.

A good place to start is to have a Running Assessment which will cover:

  • Gait & Posture Analysis
  • Alignment Testing
  • Functional Movement Screening (Injury Risk)
  • Shoe Assessment

Once you have completed your Running Assessment, we will guide and assist you towards the necessary interventions to make you a more efficient and effective injury free runner.

Nicholas Rupanga and Raydon Balie have trained with Bio MechaniX.
