Fitness For Football
Fitness for Football offers our clients the best possible football fitness coaching. We nurture natural talent as aspiring players work towards professional level, with a holistic approach to wellbeing and the demands that football academies place on young shoulders.
Now more than ever young people must be prepared for a range of mental and physical challenges that are all part of the modern game.
Our Training Sessions
We develop intelligent athletes who can read the game
Our training sessions aim at improving the key performance indicators for every pitch position in football. This includes competent body control in all directions, safe jumping and landing.
We utilise power-developing ballistic movements, such as medicine ball work and joint stabilising and strengthening work, to help try to keep you injury-free. We will also work on your speed development, through the correct technical models for sprinting and plyometric work.
Our coaching packages start from 13 sessions for £600 and are based on one session per week for the duration of the package.
However, during off-season, some athletes choose to use some of their sessions intensively (usually during the school holidays) and in the lead up to returning to their respective clubs in order to ensure that they #GoBackReady.
Please note you may be asked to adjust your payments to keep them on track with usage if you opt to use some of the sessions in the way described above. There is also the opportunity (availability permitting) to use some of the sessions to work on the player’s footwork and finishing skills outside on the 3G Astro Pitches, or at our outdoor summer venue on a fabulously maintained grass pitch (weather permitting). These sessions must be booked in advance.
To sign up for one of our 1-2-1 Coaching Packages, please fill in your details on the contact form and a member of our dedicated team will get back to you within 24 hours.
Please note that 24-hours’ notice is required to cancel a pre-booked session. Where no notice is received your session will be marked as “DID NOT SHOW” in our client database.
Other T&Cs apply, these will be sent to you upon receipt of your enquiry to join us.

“Thank you, Wayne, for the continued support with Ewan’s sports performance. Your coaching has played a huge part in progressing Ewan’s strength, speed and fitness, so much so that he has been offered a further 2-year contract with a Rochdale Academy. Your sessions push him mentally and physically and he looks forward to getting back to the sessions.”

“My daughter has just started a course of sessions with Wayne, she found the first session really useful. Her exact words were, ‘that you've connected a lot of dots’. She has always been a child that is eager to learn and be the best she can be. So she is really looking forward to working with you and can already see the benefit that you will bring to her football. Thank you.”
