      what people say

      I am incredibly grateful for the time he has invested in me and knowledge he has shared, from my first gym session in Year 9 where I was unable to complete a single press up or pull up, through to the stage I am at now, pursuing my dreams to become a professional athlete in Year 13.
      Tom Addison
      1st Team Rugby Captain / Framlingham College
      We have felt a huge positive impact on all our hockey players here at Framlingham College. From a personal perspective as head of hockey, athletic development has helped to develop so many of our players physically, which, I believe has had a direct correlation to the outstanding results we are now producing on the pitch plus the increasing number of International representatives.

      Terms & Conditions

      When an athlete signs up to Group Training part way through a term the athlete pays a prorated rate and the number of sessions are also adjusted accordingly. E.g If an athlete signs up half way through a term on our Athlete Membership, which gives the athlete 12 sessions (usually used 1 session per week), the price paid is half of the original price, and the number of sessions available is also halved, but still offering 1 session per week.
      Successful athletes are taking part in strength & conditioning activities more often than others. The optimal number of training sessions varies for each person according to the age of the athlete, their goals and schedule. As a guide we recommend 1-4 hours of dedicated strength & conditioning each week for continual and quality progress. This time is made up of physical training and recovery methods.

      Members of BAA have access to our exceptional training facilities in Ipswich,Suffolk. We offer coaching at Become An Athlete HQ, Unit 6 Alstons Court, Leslie Road, IP3 9PL and at Sportsmed East, Woodbridge Road, Kesgrave, Ipswich. Please see our contact page for our locations.

      Yes, strengthening muscles, ligaments and tendons, improving bone density, improving mobility, enhancing speed and developing more control over their own body will transfer into all-round better performance across any sport. We believe by improving athletic qualities, especially from an early age, young people become more mouldable, experience quicker learning and are able to execute sports skills with more precision and greater consistency.
      No. In fact there is significant research showing that age-appropriate and correctly designed and coached strength training exercise can help towards improving bone and connective tissue growth and overall development in young children.
      There are factors we consider when working with boys and girls including our approach to coaching and the potentially vast differences in physiology and anatomy between males and females. However, boys and girls can still train together in the same session.
