We all want to support our children and give them every chance of success, and the health of our younger population has never been a more topical issue. Adolescents have access to, and are participating in, more sports and activities than ever. And with this can come increased stress both physically and emotionally.

To prevent injury and keep the young athlete at the top of their game physically and emotionally, Mold Physiotherapy offers ‘Spirit’. Spirit is a personal, youth orientated sports coaching module aimed at preventing injury, developing health and fitness education, and supporting the health and well-being of young adults while providing a sound platform from which they can reach their full sporting potential.
This six-month program offers:
Then, a personal, physical fitness program is customised and designed to fit exact needs. The young athlete will then meet with their personal fitness coach and physiotherapist for a weekly, 60-minute personal physical fitness session in the gym. As well as their physical fitness program, coach and athlete will cover a ‘health and fitness curriculum’. This education module will cover all manner of health-related topics from nutrition to sleep and will include quizzes and homework. Subjects covered in the ‘health and fitness curriculum’ include:
In order to work exclusively with our Spirit clients, we only offer eight slots nationwide over 12 months.
The program runs in either a three month or six-month timeframe. We encourage the six-month program because this gives a longer timeframe to deliver sustainable results however the three-month program is a great starter and is intensive in its own right.
