Burnley College Sixth Form Centre Elite Athletes won't let Covid-19 interrupt training

Professional coaches and fitness trainers at Burnley College Sixth Form Centre are not allowing Covid-19 and a switch to remote learning for all students impact on the progress of their Elite Athletes.

They have devised innovative and effective workouts and strength and conditioning training routines for more than 30 student athletes who are competing at the very top of their chosen sport and are committed members of the successful Elite Athlete programme run at College.

Nathan Norris, lead strength and conditioning coach, said:

“All our Elite Athletes have been given an individualised Strength and Conditioning programme to complete while they are not in College, utilising any equipment they have at home.

“Coaching staff also check-in with all athletes once a week via a video call, ensuring they continue to make  progress and are actively working towards achieving their competition goals once the Government lifts restrictions on gathering. We’re also using Zoom as a great way for all athletes and coaches to train together once a week – it’s a great way for us to ensure we’re still maintaining maximum fitness and strength, while boosting morale at the same time.

“Our Elite Athletes are determined, motivated and committed – that’s why they’re already at the very top of their chosen sport and have great competitive futures ahead of them. They’re adapting to remote fitness regimes really well and are proving that nothing will stop them reaching their goals.”
