High Performance Gym

The High-Performance Gym (HPG) plays a major role in optimising sports performance and preventing injury for athletes at UCD. Two highly experienced and qualified Strength and Conditioning experts use evidence-based training methods to support Ad Astra Elite Sports Academy members, Sports Scholars, UCD teams, National Governing Bodies and external organisations.

The HPG employs an athlete-centered approach, providing bespoke testing and training according to athlete's needs and career trajectory. 

The HPG aims to develop robust athletes who can perform optimally at critical points, identified by the sports coach, in the competitive season. The gym and its staff also provide the supporting environment and expertise so vital after injury to optimise recovery and return to sport at the earliest opportunity.
