Online Pre-Season Fitness Training
Designed for players in adult hockey teams, but open to all members, join us for a bespoke GHC training programme run by Ciaran O’Connell. Ciaran is a Premier League Hockey player and Personal Trainer with a degree in Sport and Exercise Science. He will also be working as Strength and Conditioning coach with our Women’s 1st team next season.
For five weeks, Ciaran will run two sessions each week via Zoom:
- Tuesday sessions will be a high intensity hockey-specific Conditioning session.
- Thursday sessions will be a change of pace - all about developing flexibility, core strength and robustness ready for the new season.
Each 60-minute session will run live at 6pm. If you cannot make that it will also be available online to watch at a time to suit you.
The cost for all ten sessions is £22.15. We have tried to keep this as low as possible. One pass will give access to everyone in your household.
