At the heart of ABC is a mission to make a positive impact on people of all ages and abilities.  For this reason, we were delighted to be asked by Tees Valley Sport to provide a programme for young people who are regularly committed to training in their chosen sport.  The aim of the programme?  To live and train like a professional athlete!

So…during the six-week summer break, two groups of young athletes from Billingham Boxing Academy and the Loftus Dolphins visited ABC each week to complete tough training sessions and educational workshops.

At the very beginning of the programme, all of the young athletes were tested on a range of exercises and these were re-tested at week six so that the progress they had made in both strength and endurance could be recorded.

As well as working hard in the practical training sessions, the boxers and swimmers also completed workshops on:

  • Anatomy
  • Nutrition
  • Goal-setting
  • Team-work
  • Recovery and managing injury
  • Mobility

It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Tees Valley Sport and the young people from both Billingham Boxing Academy and the Loftus Dolphins over the Summer and we look forward to further developing the role of ABC in becoming a leading provider of sports and fitness training and education for aspiring athletes in the north-east.
