Whereas fitness training is aimed at sports men and women of all levels from all sports, who are looking to optimise their physical performance, re-athletisation is designed for those who have completed their physiotherapy programme and are about to return to competition. More specifically, re-athletisation is that particularly tricky period for athletes who have just recovered from injury but are not yet able to perform at their best.
During this period, it is vital to provide athletes with specific training geared to their individual needs and the demands required by their sport. The common denominator in the services provided by the Training Department is highly individualised and personalised training carried out on a one-to-one basis to guarantee the highest possible standards, in accordance with the underlying philosophy of the Mapei Sport Research Centre.
Nothing has been left to chance in launching this new service: “We have set up a training ward inside the centre in Olgiate Olona (Province of Varese, Northern Italy) with all the latest and most sophisticated equipment, some of which cannot be found in ordinary fitness centres and/or physiotherapy centres. The aim is to be able to monitor men and women who want to train or get back into competition in the best way possible following an injury. Our trainers can offer clients the know-how gained from working for over 25 years with professional athletes and teams, as well as national sports federations. This has enabled us to compile a databank and gain specific expertise about training high-level sportspeople”, so the Director of Mapei Sport Research Centre, Dr Claudio Pecci, told us.
“It is not some standard package, it is a program tailored to individual needs maintaining the evidence-based approach that has enabled Mapei Sport to gain international recognition in the world of sport”, so Dr Franco Combi, chief consultant of the re-athletisation area, added.
“To reach the highest levels of expertise in this sector, you need to adopt a strategy focused around sportspeople that is designed to make the most of their individual talents, while, at the same time, helping them improve any weaknesses they might have – so Federico Donghi concluded, project leader in the Training Department - “Our speciality is the ability to personalise training and focus on details to satisfy even the most demanding clients: hence the hashtag #WEare4YOU».
So, after medical checks and assessment tests, it is time to get the most from your training with Mapei Sport’s Training Department! Further information about the services provided by Mapei Sport can be found in English language at mapeisport
