At Shaikhit we also work on squash specific Fitness, Movement & Speed to compliment your game.
We are very fortunate to have on our team Mike Wilkinson who has had experience in fitness, movement & speed training for athletes at the super elite level. Mike has worked with top 10 world ranked tennis players at the peak of their careers. His knowledge has allowed us to develop highly effective squash specific training techniques.
Alongside Mike, we have two other Physical Training Specialists. Selena is an accredited personal trainer and Tyler is currently finishing a degree in Exercise & Sports Science. With Mikes guidance and their experience of competing at a high level they have a deeper understanding of the demands of the game and how best to compliment a players on court training with fitness, movement, strength and speed work.
Time & Rates
Just like with our squash sessions, bookings can be made for either one on one or group sessions. These sessions run for either 45 or 60 minutes and start from just $15 per session.
As an added advantage we are lucky to have state of the art training equipment that no-one in the country is currently using for squash. The Fitlight Trainer system is created to measure, track and record an endless number of speed & movement drills that can be set up specifically for squash.
We use a variety of training techniques to help you get quick improvements in fitness.
We can make improvements in your endurance, your ability to maintain the high intensity bursts that squash demands and your power to get on and off the ball.
We train you with individualised programs to suit your specific needs. Just as no two squash players are exactly the same, their programs shouldn't be either.
Getting faster through moving more efficiently and understanding your body's angles to generate the most power will get you using less energy and prevent you from injury in a game or practice.
Training this in doesn't have to be mind numbingly painful through repetitive ghosting training. We use techniques and equipment to get you to feel the correct movement patterns and train them in over time in a range of different ways that are actually FUN.
Enhancing your speed in a straight line and through the typical agility demands of your chosen sport requires development in 4 main areas;
- Building inherent muscular power
- Ability to quickly achieve efficient angles
- Coordination and general efficiency
- Developing an attack mentality
We take a practical approach to improving you across each of these.
At Shaikhit, we've trained everyone from weekend warriors to elite athletes and we know how to get results.
Our speed programs start with analysis and bench-marking. Once that's done, we develop a tailored training regime, designed to optimise your performance over the 4 criteria. We supervise check-ins along the way to make sure you're on track and improving.
To really hone your speed, we recommend ideally 2 and a minimum of 1 supervised training sessions a week.
