Medicine ball training is one of the most enjoyable exercise to use in strength training programs with a focus on core strength, with many fun partner exercises and games used to achieve this. It is also one of the simplest and safest ways to teach power training and rotational power with people and because of that is also very under rated.

Here is a unique case study of how we helped a client to successfully manage a very difficult hip problem. This client who still trains with us, has now trained with us for nearly 3 years.
