HELP is on hand for aspiring athletes in the North-East thanks to a new specialist training support programme.

Athletic performance coach Adam Brooks, who has 10 years experience, has developed Peak Performance Sport Academy (PPSA) to help athletes reach their full potential.

Adam, from Hartlepool, is working to enable athletes to ultimately reach their peak physical condition for competition.

The PPSA works with the complete beginner aiming to complete their first endurance challenge to the talented youth academy games player wanting to develop themselves as a complete athlete.

Working in partnership with Hartlepool College of Further Education and Luminary Fitness Suite, PPSA has designed a range of practical sport specific fitness tests.

Sports development manager Cat Wright and Adam are supporting various athletes from a range of sports from amateur cycling teams to young academy youth footballers.

PPSA has also launched their Youth Athletic Development programmes, which will run every Tuesday from November 12 between 6pm and 9.30pm at the village hall in Hart Village.

The programme focuses on strength and conditioning group sessions, injury prevention and core stability, allowing the athletes to improve muscular strength and develop explosive power. There is a range of classes for both children and adults and a cycling specific indoor session ending the evening.
