Hannes Schoeman

Movement Mechanics - Sport Sci Hons. (UJ) B Sport Sci. (UP) TPI Certified Level 1 Squash Coach ASA Level 1 Athletics

I specialize in golf, squash and tennis strength and conditioning, currently training four top 10 squash players in SA. I believe in 'pre-hab' to prohibit injuries and increase the functionality of the body.

My conditioning philosophy is to assess and improve the physical condition of athletes for their sporting code. They should physically be prepared for anything their sport might demand of them. A physical weakness will lead to compensation of some sort such as muscle imbalance, movement restriction, etc, which ultimately can or will lead to injury.

It is my job to enhance physical performance by offering a tailor-made training program specific to your needs and to the needs of your body.
In the sporting world, the gap between victory and defeat is becoming smaller. Therefore, if you want to succeed in your sport, you need to train specifically for it.
