With a focus on building the clubs growing professionalism and on field success for season 2019 and beyond the North Heidelberg Bulldogs have Partnered with Fit Academy to be Strength and Conditioning partners for season 2019.
The partnership is seen as a positive move to build on its already impressive return to Division 1 Football in the Northern Football Netball League.
Senior Coach Brent Harvey feels the confidence the players gained from last year where they played in a Prelim Final will be enhanced by further strength and Fitness gains from working out and training at Fit Academy.
“We have had several of the boys working out consistently down at Fit Academy and the extra sessions are clearly paying off. The boys are really driven and keen to make up for the disappointment of the prelim exit last year. We have made a conscious effort to keep training as variable as possible and following the boundary line night in night out with running sessions isn’t exciting for anyone. The team sessions that Sam and the crew develop for us are an excellent way to change training up a little whilst still ensuring the group gets a solid session in. Often the boys are blowing harder in the High Intensity sessions than they do in some sessions on the track.”
North Heidelberg Sporting Club President Warren Haysom also adds;
“We are excited about the opportunity to partner with Fit Academy. Like all clubs having loyal and local sponsors and partners is an integral key to ensuring the strength of the club continues into the future. Not only will both the Netballers
and Footballers benefit from the added strength and conditioning gains, but we also feel that having a strength and conditioning partner shows that the Doggies are doing everything we can to take the next step on and off the field in season 2019”
