Cross-Train Like an Elite Athlete
MaccaX is proud to announce its partnership with Precision Athletica, Sydney’s first top-level institute of sport accessible to the public.
We’re all looking for that extra oomph in our race performances, whether we’re at the pointy end of our age group or bringing up the back of the pack. We want to emulate how the elites in our sport train, wondering if they do any secret training sessions that help push them across the finish line faster than anyone else.
But the real secret of elite performance is how well these athletes build and improve the foundation of their fitness: their mindset, movement, recovery, and fueling.
Precision Athletica is Sydney’s first top level institute of sport accessible to the public, giving access to the same level of practitioners and high performance training equipment that an elite athlete would have in preparing for their sport or the next Olympics. Precision Athletica has brought together a team of physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, sports scientists, biomechanists and strength and conditioning coaches to bring the science to your success.
They are at the forefront of implementing functional exercise for triathletes, which ensures injury recovery and prevention, and promotes technique efficiency under fatigue.
MaccaX’s partnership with Precision Athletica allows us to offer our members access to the same experience, advice, training facilities, and systems designed for professional athletes to help them maximize their athletic performance.
Precision Athletica is Sydney’s first top level institute of sport accessible to the public, based at Sydney’s Olympic Park Athletic Centre, Olympic Park (Homebush). Precision Athletica offers a new generation physio for sports performance, giving clients access to the same level of practitioners and high performance training equipment that an elite athlete would have in preparing for their sport or the next Olympics.
Functional exercise for triathletes ensures injury recovery and prevention, and promotes technique efficiency under fatigue. It is pointless to train for strength, power, agility, and speed without the underlying foundation of mobility and motion control.
