Based on the fitness qualities highlighted in the Talent Development Framework, we select a range of assessments to establish current conditioning relative to international or elite club level. These will normally include body composition (might be as simple as BMI, but could be Bodystat), power, speed (initial and transitional and repeat) and cardiorespiratory fitness.
Here, a vast array of weaponry can be bought to bear on each of the fitness qualities. From the pillar and movement prep of the EXOS system, the OPT (Optimum Performance Training) model of the NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) to the more traditional split routines of the NSCA (National Strength and Conditioning), there's a route for every requirement from beginner to full international.
All the data is entered into a business intelligence platform, thus avoiding the pitfalls of using spreadsheets. The data can be stored, analysed and interpreted for an individual or large group. Players can also be monitored for wellness every day or weekly using various different systems of monitoring. This allows us to keep tabs on how they're doing.
These are web-based, centralised information centres for coaching staff and players. Fully integrated business intelligence provides live data of daily/weekly monitoring, on-going assessment results and analysis, GPS breakdowns and player evaluation summaries. Alongside this are embedded GPS websites, tournament websites, and national governing body websites as well as all monitoring links, anti-jetlag procedures and an array of PDFs and files required by performance teams.
