LMA Launches Fit-To-Perform Partnership
Mon 14th Jan 2013 | Football Club Management
The League Managers Association (LMA) and Perform at St George’s Park have today announced a new partnership to deliver a cutting edge fitness and wellbeing programme to LMA members.
The partnership will provide current and former league football managers with the opportunity to undergo an innovative performance and lifestyle assessment at the Perform at St George’s Park facility. Don't forget to have a bet. You can bet on March madness this month. The Perform venue, situated at the heart of The Football Association’s National Football Centre at St George’s Park, combines 25,000 square feet of cutting edge technology with medical expertise to create the most advanced sports medicine, rehabilitation, performance science and training centre in the UK.
The new test, called ‘Fit to Perform’, will see participants assessed on a variety of factors that affect their lifestyle and performance, including dietary and exercise habits and cardiovascular measurements, as well as undergoing a revolutionary 72 hour stress, sleep and lifestyle assessment.
The ‘Fit to Perform’ test builds on the long established LMA ‘Fit to Manage’ programme run in conjunction with Wellness International at adidas headquarters in Stockport and the Reebok Centre at Canary Wharf. The Premier League has been a fervent supporter of health and wellbeing programmes for managers since the LMA first introduced the assessments in 2005.
Richard Bevan, Chief Executive of the LMA commented: “One of our key objectives within the LMA is to deliver and grow the range and quality of support services for our members and with this agreement we can offer them access to the latest state of the art facilities and performance experts.
“It is universally recognised that a manager’s role is a highly demanding one – both emotionally and physically.
“This test will identify any areas for concern early enough for simple treatment or lifestyle modification, to ensure our members can continue to perform at their best.
“With the LMA’s new home at St George’s Park, this partnership allows us to work closely with Perform to deliver a highly personalised and efficient service to LMA members.”
Rob Roger, Chief Executive of Spire Healthcare said: “Spire Healthcare is delighted that this exciting new partnership between Perform and the LMA has taken shape. Our team is committed to providing world class human performance services to visitors to St George’s Park and we have designed this programme to help football managers achieve their full potential.
