THE UNFORTUNATE REALITY 

Having Great Technique Is No Longer Enough

Here's why:

 

  • The athletic ability of swimmers is skyrocketing and those that have not prioritised their strength, speed, power & agility are already being left behind.

  • With the increase in athleticism, swimmers that have not already prioritised optimising athleticism with time will get slower, and weaker and become more susceptible to injury.

  • Engaging in a generalised strength program designed for 15+ other athletes means you will not be able to get the individualised attention that you need to stand out.

  • Downloading a template program (even our own) will only get you so far but without a multi-disciplined team to guide you through tough training blocks, you will often get overworked and open yourselves up to an athlete's worst enemy... Over-training.

The simple fact is...

 

You can no longer just tick the boxes

If that were true we would see strong, powerful, robust and confident swimmers everywhere.

BUT WE DON'T

We see weak, injury-prone and self-doubting swimmers everywhere.

THIS IS NOT THEIR FAULT

Most swimming-specific strength programs often rely on the latest gimmicks while trying to replicate swimming stroke patterns to sell their programs as "sport specific" without actually understanding how to transfer strength and power to the water.

Or the programming is so generic and unfocused that they lack the individualization to truly take the athlete to the next level.

Why does this matter?

 

Unfortunately, most of us will never have access to a national institution or a well-funded sporting body. This means that we are not afforded the opportunities to work within an ecosystem that is fully focused on maximising the results of the individual, utilising training

insights, systems and secrets (not gimmicks) that have

proven time after time to generate results. 

So the people at the top get to use the latest in

sports science, recovery, and training equipment whilst accessing

the best physiotherapists, nutritional advice and a

training environment that fosters excellence.

 

While you're stuck trying to maximise your generic training programs 

filled with gimmicks and having to empty your bank account

on physiotherapy, nutritionists and gym memberships... 
 

It all sounds pretty bleak, to be honest...
S

UNTIL NOW!

 

For the first time, the Swimming Strength & Performance Program

is here to give you access to the luxuries normally only afforded

to the elite and give them to any swimmer hungry to

optimise their performance come race day!

When it comes to your performance you DESERVE the

opportunity to reach your peak when it counts.

HERE'S WHAT SOME OF THE BEST IN AUSTRALIA THINK

Not Satisfied With How Your Feeling In The Pool or Ocean?

HERE'S WHY YOUR NOT GETTING
THE RESULTS YOU DESERVE

1
Your Program Isn't Designed For You

Generic programs yield generic results. 

This is because they don't account for the needs of the athlete's weaknesses and unique performance opportunities. 

Your program should accurately and reliably assess your strengths, weaknesses and performance opportunities to maximise your results. 

A one size fits all approach may address the needs of the sport by claiming to be "sports specific" but will fail to be athlete specific. 

 

Yes, any program is better than no program and it may show results in the short term but will ultimately lead to a plateau... 

If you are looking to obtain your ultimate performance then you need a program that is reflective of your individual needs as an athlete and not just of your sport.

Incredible Results

Your Strength Doesn't Transfer To The Water.

If your Strength & Conditioning Program only accounts for you lifting weights then you are ultimately missing a key part of the equation. 

As good as getting stronger in the gym is, it means nothing if you don't perform at your sport. 

There's no point in becoming the king of the weight room if you’re stiff and slow in the water.

 

The reverse is also true and programs that fail to get you strong enough do not allow you to express your force quickly enough. 

That's why we use the principle of dynamic correspondence to ensure we maximise your new level of performance and achieve your ultimate performance.

Meet Our Head Of
Performance

A message from Ryan Evernden our Head of Performance with over 10 years of coaching Swimmers from the pool deck and in the gym at all levels. 

For me achieving peak performance boils down to two simple things: Confidence and Desire.

Confidence: In your body and in the result itself.

Without confidence in your body, you will doubt its ability to perform. If you're doubting your performance you're in a lot of trouble. 

This kind of confidence only comes from consistent hard work accumulated over an extended period.


Confidence like this is a direct result of following the program, believing in the system and knowing that our team has your back.

 

By doing this you'll feel unstoppable come race day.

Desire: To Win, to make tough choices and attack the challenges you will be presented with.

​You have to be desperate, desperate to get up every day and do what others won't in order to achieve what others can't.

 

We always hear about the sacrifices athletes make to achieve their dreams but in reality, everything is a choice.

 

A choice to go to bed on time, a choice to treat your body with respect, a choice to say no to others. Yes, it might be hard at points but for those with the desire to achieve peak performance, there's no other option. This desire to make the right choices is the same desire that helps you achieve in the moments that count.

At Formidable Strength & Conditioning, we help you nurture these traits through our training systems, support structures and environment to help build confidence and feed your desire.

A Specialist Team in Swimming Strength, Performance & Rehabilitation

Nowhere else in Australia will you have access to this level of experience and knowledge around the sport of swimming. 

With a coaching team that is still involved in the sport either competitively or coaching poolside, we have a unique advantage in troubleshooting & identifying issues if they arise as well as knowledge of stroke mechanics that transfer to dryland training and in the gym. 

This combined with our specialist rehabilitation team gives our program an advantage not seen anywhere else.

2
Training Program Proven to Generate Results At All Levels

With our Streamlined Training Systems, we have a track record unlike anywhere else in Aquatic Sports. 
 

These systems deliver results to athletes at all levels from aspiring Olympians to master athletes because we are not married to one methodology but utilise systems that allow us to apply specific methodologies to your program for your individual training needs. 

 

This means that we can maximise your training results and help you reach your peak performance!

We Are Willing To Back Up Our Claims

Lots of people are willing to say that you will get a result but few will actually put their money where their mouth is and guarantee your money back if they fail to deliver. 

We fundamentally believe that if you work on improving performance you should be held accountable.

 

We are so confident in the ability of the SSPP to help you reach your peak performance for you that we’re willing to fully protect your investment with a 100% money-back guarantee.

 

If your athleticism hasn’t improved after your first re-testing with us, we’ll refund your money in full and rip up the agreement.

Not only that, but you’ll get to keep all the bonuses that come with your sign-up and continue to get the full benefit from them… for the rest of your sporting career.

And in case you are wondering we have never had to give a refund.

So realistically you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

FAQS

PROGRAMING

Do I get my own program? All athletes have different needs, even if their sport, event or position is the same the athlete is not. This is why we use our streamlined swimming solutions framework to create 80% of the program and individualise the critical 20%.

How many session do I get? Depending on the time of season you are in, your time availability and your ability to recover we will determine how many sessions will be optimal for you to reach your peak performance.

How are my improvements being measured? We use the latest and state-of-the-art testing equipment to make sure we are not guessing when it comes to your results. Using our testing technology we will accurately determine your baseline and then measure your progress every 5-10 weeks to make sure we are leaving no stone unturned.

Will I be supervised when I'm training? You will always have a coach or therapist on hand to make sure that you are correctly implementing your program, optimising the program for your needs that day and motivating you to achieve your peak performance come comp day. Groups are limited to 9 people so you will always get the attention you deserve.

What age do I need to be to start training with you? As we are working with athletes we need to ensure that there is a certain level of maturity. We do not have a minimum age as such but generally, we will not take anyone under the age of 14. We have taken younger and every applicant will be taken on a case by case bases to determine if they fit the environment and do not detract from other athletes.

I want to train with you but live far away or interstate what options do you have? Australia is a huge place and that means it can be a long way to travel to get to our central Perth location. The good news is that our programs are not dependent on access to the facility. Our entire program is based on us being able to help you no matter where you are so we offer a very successful online model (same cost as it's actually more work to do a program online) for those training too far away.

Am I able to do one session at FSC and one at home? Yes, this is something that a lot of our athletes do already to fit into their lives. We can do this by adjusting your program to fit your environment or using whatever equipment you have available to you.

Your programs are athlete only, how do I know if I'm an athlete or not? Great question, we classify athletes as anyone that is striving to improve their ability to compete in their sport. We don't care if you are a masters athlete at states or if you are looking to make the Olympics, if you have the desire to improve in your chosen sport, you're an athlete

The Facility

Where are you located? 56 Grantham Street Wembley 6014. Down the road from Lake Monger and across from the Wembley Primary School. There is parking available around the back of the gym.

What times are you open? We are open from 5 am till 7 am on Monday to Thursday. Friday 5 am till 11 am and Saturday 8 am till 10am

MEMBERSHIPS

Why does your program go for a year? Nothing worthwhile happens overnight and you shouldn't expect your peak performance to happen overnight. Rome wasn't built in a day and neither will your peak performance. This is why our programs are year-round and do not take breaks.

Do you have hold periods if I go away? No, your goals don't disappear when you go away and neither should your program. We make sure that when you return from being away you have not fallen behind and you are able to pick back up where you left off.

I can't commit to a year-long program, do you still have something for me? A lot of athletes (especially at the higher levels of sport) only have three and six-month blocks available to them before their other commitments recommence. If you’re an athlete in that position, we can still help. We’ll assess your situation on a case-by-case basis and if it makes sense for you to join our program, we’ll get the wheels in motion. Extra fees may apply.

What are your different pricing options? We have two different payment options. Our Program is valued at $4550 a year and you can pay this upfront for a 15% saving of $682.5 bringing it to $3867.5 Typically however you can choose to pay via direct debit fortnightly ($175) or monthly ($350). Direct debit fees may apply.

I can't see online training on your website do you offer that? Technically all our programs are online as non of our programs are bound to the facility itself and it cost the same whether you are training remotely or in-house. However, we do recommend that you try and visit us in person as there is nothing better than having an eye on you in the moment.

Pricing

How much does it cost to work with you? The cost of our Swimming Strength & Performance Program and ADP Program is $4550 a year. This is $12.5 a day or 87.5 a week.

Do you get a discount if we pay upfront? Yes, you will save 15% ($682.5 ). This will mean you pay $3867.5 for the year instead of $4550.

Are there any discounts for Families? We understand that the more kids you have the more expensive everything becomes. That is why we offer 5% off the next family member to sign up for our SSPP Program or our ADP program.

Why is it more expensive to work with you for a shorter period of time? There are a lot of inclusions in the program that you don’t pay for that we build into the yearly subscription. If you choose to work with us for a shorter period of time (via application only and typically only for Fly-In, Fly-Out professional athletes), we have to account for these extra inclusions. We also want to incentivise those that are truly committed to the process.

I hate direct debits as I have been stung by big box gyms before. Do you offer any other payment methods? No, this is to keep our admin cost low so we do not have to increase the cost of the program. If you would like to avoid direct debit you're free to take the upfront payment and get a great deal whilst doing so!

Still Unsure?

Book a call with one of our coaches and we will be happy to answer any question you may have
