We know that our equipment is used by a host of elite sports teams all over the world, and now we are delighted that our Training Academy is also being utilised by some of the world's most elite performers. Aston Villa Football Club are one of the oldest and most successful football clubs in the UK, in fact over the years only three English clubs have won more major honours.
In order to maintain their status as one of the giants of English football the club are always looking to enhance the skill and ability of all members of staff - both on and off the pitch. This week the Aston Villa FC Strength & Conditioning Department spent the day with our Training Academy Manager, Mark Laws.
Mark taught them how to execute all the foundation exercises safely, how to implement Kettlebells into their current conditioning programmes and how to correct any problems with players techniques.
Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, Michael Watts MSc, said "In my position at the football club I am always looking to further the knowledge and skill set of myself and the staff within my department. Today Mark has delivered a Kettlebell Certification that not only delivered a great practical element but was also underpinned with sound rationale. With Mark's background and experience of professional football he really delivered a course that was relevant to our industry. The course was delivered in a professional manner but was really good fun at the same time. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who is interested in developing their knowledge and skill set".
Academy Manager, Mark Laws, added "It was a great honour to be asked to share my knowledge with such an experienced team. Premier League football is renowned as being one of the fastest and most physically demanding leagues in world football - the S&C Coaches at Aston Villa FC are among the best in the business at preparing athletes of the highest calibre. On behalf of the company I know that Jordan Fitness are delighted to provide equipment to Aston Villa FC, and from the Training Academy's perspective this is great recognition of our ability also".
