Radley’s Head of Strength and Conditioning visits Elstree
Elstree’s Year 7 and 8 and their parents received a visit from Mr Warren Beatty – Head of Strength and Conditioning at Radley College – and colleagues last Friday
First, a cross-section of pupils were selected during games, and were put through an extremely active session in the Sports Hall. Then, they moved on to the McMullen Hall to speak to all Year 7 and 8 about Health, Nutrition and Recovery.
The Radley Strength and Conditioning team shared advice about exploring healthy food options, training tips – to improve performance and reduce the risk of injury – and different components of fitness and recovery, like dealing with stress; rest and digestion, and the importance of sleep.
Afterwards, Mr Beatty and colleagues spoke to parents in the Long Room about the part they can play in supporting their children in strength and conditioning.
Both pupils and parents expressed their sincere gratitude for their insights and advice. A huge thank you to Mr Beatty and team for coming to visit Elstree. We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
