Minor Injury Clinic
On Friday 22nd March at 20:00 we will be hosting a minor injury clinic at the box. This is highly recommended for any of our members who have any past injuries or present niggles that they feel affect their mobility. Advice will be given on how to best prevent and treat those niggles and also on how to strengthen areas affected by injury.
The clinic will be run by David Craig, managing director of GCC Training. David is An Ex-Military Physical Training Instructor with the RAF. During his time as a PTI he specialized as an Exercise Rehabilitation Instructor (Level 4 Specialist Instructor in Accelerated Rehabilitation). Much of his time as an ERI was spent at Headley Court, the specialist rehabilitation center for injured military personnel. Here he primarily dealt with Lower limb injuries, including hip and groin specialist rehabilitation and running re-education from acute, chronic and post-surgical conditions to full fitness.
As well as serving as a PTI David also has a background in professional and semi-professional football in Scotland, England and Cyprus. He has extensive experience managing and delivering health and fitness courses worldwide and we look forward to hosting him at the box.
On the weekend of the 23/24 March, CrossFit 57 North will be hosting a Kettlebell Level 2 course, again ran by GCC training. Kettlebell training, as everyone is well aware, is extremely popular. They provide a complete, whole body workout and are a staple in almost all functional gyms. There is a wide array of moves and exercises to master and this 2 day course will provide the Fitness Instructor or Personal trainer with another exceptional skill to teach.
Anyone interested in attending the Minor Injury Clinic on the Friday night please book in at the box. For those interested in attending the Kettlebell Level 2 course, please follow the link below to the website and book in that way or contact GCC for further info.
GCC Training completed a Kettlebells course at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre Headley Court for some of its Exercise Rehabilitation Instructors and Physiotherapists.
All staff passed the course with flying colours and were able to see the need for Kettlebells within functional rehabilitation programmes for lower limb and spinal patients.
The facilities for training were fantastic and Leigh Withers (tutor) conducted a first class course to a very receptive audience.
GCC will continue to have strong links to the military and help wherever possible with future courses and education.
David Craig, Managing Director of GCC Training. Always looking to improve service and deliver cutting edge and relevant education.
