Fit­ness work­shop set for Zvisha­vane

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Love­more Zi­gara in Gweru

FOR­MER Zim­babwe sprinter Lloyd Zvasiya will con­duct a strength and con­di­tion­ing clinic in Zvisha­vane from Oc­to­ber 29-30.

The United King­dom­based Zvasiya is now an in­ter­na­tional in­struc­tor and a cer­ti­fied strength and con­di­tion­ing coach ac­cred­ited by the UK Sports As­so­ci­a­tion in Lon­don, which spe­cialises in sport nu­tri­tion and sport psy­chol­ogy.

He said the course is de­signed for all coaches in the dif­fer­ent sport­ing dis­ci­plines, gym in­struc­tors, ath­letes, medics and phys­i­cal ed­u­ca­tion teach­ers.

“Through my com­pany Zvasi0705 Fit­ness First I will be hold­ing a strength and fit­ness clinic in Zvisha­vane from Oc­to­ber 29-30.

‘‘ The course is de­signed for coaches in the dif­fer­ent sport­ing dis­ci­plines be it foot­ball, ath­let­ics, rugby or net­ball, among oth­ers,” Zvasiya said.

“The clinic will share spe­cific ex­er­cises, stretches and train­ing guide­lines that will help ath­letes con­tinue to en­joy sport with fewer orthopaedic in­ter­rup­tions.

“It helps ath­letes young and old to im­prove per­for­mance, in­crease ath­letic longevity and min­imises the risk of acute and overuse in­juries.” He said the work­shop will pro­vide rel­e­vant science-based in­for­ma­tion to pro­fes­sion­als and in­di­vid­u­als so that ath­letes learn to im­prove their fit­ness and per­for­mance in sport. It will also help par­tic­i­pants gain a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of their re­spec­tive sport for them to per­form at a higher level, as well as to arm them with knowl­edge of a safe and ef­fec­tive ex­er­cise pro­gramme. Par­tic­i­pa­tion fees have been pegged at $100. Mean­while, a Ger­man ex­pert would be com­ing to the coun­try at the end of Novem­ber at the in­vi­ta­tion of the Na­tional Ath­let­ics As­so­ci­a­tion of Zim­babwe (NAAZ) to con­duct ath­let­ics work­shops at Belvedere Teacher’s Train­ing Col­lege. NAAZ sec­re­tary gen­eral Cyn­thia Phiri said the ex­pert, whom she did not name, would con­duct three courses that be­gin on Novem­ber 25. Par­tic­i­pants will be re­quired to fork out $50 for each course. “Three pro­grammes are key in ath­let­ics de­vel­op­ment in schools - th­ese are Tal­ent Iden­ti­fi­ca­tion and De­vel­op­ment (TID), Kids Ath­let­ics (KA), which is a com­po­nent in the new cur­ricu­lum syl­labus, and High Level Sem­i­nar in Jumps. This is an op­por­tu­nity to ex­pose our ath­let­ics teach­ers to the best world trends,” said Phiri. TID will run from Novem­ber 25-27, while KA will be held from Novem­ber 29 to De­cem­ber 1 and the High Level Sem­i­nar Jumps from De­cem­ber 6-8 — @ lavuzi­gara1.
